This past weekend I went down to see my friends from school in Maryland. It was a great time and I always forget how much fun we have together until I’m there and we can’t stop laughing. I always love days like that.
However my back was still hurting me that weekend which made sleeping on my friend’s couch no fun. I actually ended up leaving at 7am. Which worked out to my advantage because I hit no traffic and spent the day sleeping in the comfort of my own bed! Besides that, all was great.
My one friend who is a teacher has off this coming week for Easter. She asked me if I had any days, if I would want to maybe take off a day or two and do something. Since work has been killing me lately and I’ve been trying to find an excuse to take a mental health day, here was the perfect thing!!
We decided to check out prices in Atlantic City since that was about half way between us. I found a room at the Tropicana for only 49 DOLLARS!! How freaking sweet is that? Divide that by two and I’m only spending 25 dollars for a hotel room that includes breakfast at Starbucks the next day!
I could not be more excited! The perfect escape and it’s so cheap! Whenever I go to AC I only allow myself to spend a certain amount of money. Since I’m saving so much I won’t feel so bad when I do gamble. It’s not even about gambling, though I did have a dream that I won like 39 million dollars (random number no?) the other night, I’m just happy to get away from reality a little while and spend some time with my friend who I don’t get to see often enough.
Next Thursday while all my co-workers are praying for the day to go faster and for it to be the weekend already, you can find me in AC, drink in my hand, playing some slots!
