Vegas+feet= REALLY bad

I realized that my last post really didn't get to the point... about Vegas hating feet. I did mention that I managed to injure my foot in some way. Separately from the non-injury/pain there was the standard aching from the excessive walking that took place while wearing shit-shoes! I also saw MANY blisters. There was even one girl with sandals on, band aids on both heels, and (yucky) blood dripping from the left heel.

Vegas HATES feet and wants them to DIE!

Believe it or not, I actually did enjoy my first one-on-one vacation with my hubby and also first trip to Vegas. My favorite hotel was Paris. I loved all of the theme hotels; Luxor, Venetian, Excalibur (where we stayed)... ect and so forth but the Paris was hands down my favorite. I found it hilarious that they had CORNY pick-up lines playing over the speakers in the bathroom! Ahhh... too funny.

We had a great time, although we didn't hit any jackpots. We stayed within our budget for gambling money. We saw the Bellagio light/water show and took a gondola ride at the Venetian. We also saw the Tournament of Kings in the Excalibur; it was so much fun :)! The only other "show" we went to was the Live, Price is Right. We didn't win anything or even get called up to participate. :( it was still fun though. Do you remember the guy who hosted Supermarket Sweep? Well, he was the host for this Live show!

All in all, it was a lot of fun. Don't worry, I'll post pictures tomorrow. I just wanted to drop a line, since I've been rather MIA for two weeks. I fear that I wont be around too much in the near future, either. I'll be finding a job by the end of the week, at all costs. Deployment money has officially stopped... my working is no longer avoidable. It's time to humble myself no matter what it takes. I'll be taking huge steps backwards (from where I thought I was in life) in order to pay bills. Some people say it's honorable to step up... somehow I feel far less than honorable; feels more along the lines of failure.

That's what I'll be up to. Standby for pictures! :)

Wow, I can't believe anyone else watched Supermarket Sweep! And I feel your pain about the feet. I thought I took the perfect shoes to Disney with us and I came back with all sorts of blisters on my feet. Well, just the one foot, which I guess means my weight isn't distributed evenly when I walk.
