This weekend my wife and I rung in the New Year with a few firsts. It was the first time we visited the M casino, the first time she got a players card for a casino, the first time I played Ultimate Texas Hold-em (I did very poorly) and the first time she put a bet down on a football game (She bet on Ohio to win and on them for 5 point spread and won both bets). Also through a stroke of lady luck my wife was playing the last two hands of her budgeted gambling money and won $500 in one quick side bet on Blackjack. This now won us the entire gambling pot back, and this is the first time we leave Vegas broken even without having any gambling losses. It’s as if we played and gambled all weekend for free (minus the cost of meals).
All in all it was a fun 3 days, though I am a bit sleep deprived and am looking forward to sleeping in my own bed again. Time to get focused this week, I have many things to accomplish at work and am hoping to gain some ground.
Happy first Monday of 2010
