So, I’m off to Rocky Point, Mexico with my girlfriends for a little R & R because Goddess knows my life is so rough I need a break from it! Thankfully I must have done something right in a previous life that I am fortunate enough to be able to run around doing what I want when I want. But if truth be told, I have put in my time, I was a stay-at-home Mom for 21 years! (Just sayin….) Anyway, I digress as usual, but to prepare for my send off and my husbands homecoming we decided to go to the casino…whoa, there’s a surprise! My hubby and I like to occasion the casinos as a way to unwind…well, the last few times we had visited during the Holiday weekend, I lost my shirt and I was pissing and moaning like the mature woman I am. I had vowed I was not going back FOREVER! I am not a good loser. I was very pouty and quite sad about losing my money, thinking about what I could have done with it…
So my husband had gone out of town for a few days and as soon as he came home, like the inner child he is, he mentioned coming home and gambling. I reminded him we had thrown over a new leaf…giving up gambling for a while since we had hit a losing streak. “OH” he says to me with such disappointment, the balloon of excitement just popped by his “Mother” wife! “Huhmmm!” I thought, I don’t want to BE that kind of wife, I NEVER can say NO to my husband…so I thought about it as he was flying home, and realized if that’s what he wanted to do, okay, I’d go, what a sport I am! So he arrived home, we hung out with our sons, he ate hotdogs, then he gave me the look, and made the signs of pulling the “one-armed bandit”, the slot machine and I was hooked.
Well, we went and guess what! We won! Yay! Yes…thank you Goddess! I won $697 and he won $543 so it was a good day. It was about time, after the Holiday weekend when I had lost about $3-400. He had won then too. So now I can go on my trip with free spending money.
So here I come Mexico… I’m leaving my son Luke home with Spooky the cat and of course my husband. I’m so sure they will miss me so much. Ha, ha ha.
