Life Is Good~

Yesterday my DH and I and my mom went to the casino in Connecticut. My 2 boys babysat for the dogs. After going to a few Illinois casinos we missed the ones in New England. We thought we would only stay a few hours. It is a 2 hour drive from here to there. We ended up staying 8.5 hours. I'm so glad we got a dog sitter for the day!
I was going to play blackjack, but instead decided to play the slots. I use to play only quarter or dollar machines. Then I realized you can play the penny machines for $4 a spin. I won $500 on a really cool Wheel of Fortune machine that had a giant wheel in the middle of 8 machines. Then about a half hour later I actually won another $500. Then I walked around the 3 casinos and played a few machines I didn't like. Winning and losing all along the way. Then I came across a cute little Monopoly game and started to play. I like to stop the roll before it finishes so it seems like I'm more in control of my destiny. Well after a little less than 30 minutes on this machine, I won $800 (on a darn penny machine, WOW)! Then, guess what!!! After about 15 minutes or even less, I won another $800 on the same penny machine. I gave my DH and my mom a little more money between my wins so they could gamble and not just stare at me and my mom doubled the money she came with.
All in all it was a super terrific day!
And today, my DH got a job. After being out of work since before Christmas he starts work tomorrow. AND it is only 15 minutes away from our house. He will be there until at least December.
We have definitely been blessed! Hope all is well with everyone. I am definitely feeling grateful for our life right now.
