Another Year Older

Happy Birthday to me!

Hubby and I went on a little mini-vacation to a near-by casino. My seed money consisted of $200, and I walked away with $155. Now to some of you, that may sound like I lost. But I did not.

When we first got there, I laid out $100 on the blackjack table. About an hour to an hour and a half later, it was all gone. Panicked and slightly sick I made to leave the table. But hubby said I should stay. So I stayed. And won back $55. Which right now doesn't sound all that great, but in the end I probably played for about 4 hours. So I consider it this way: $45 for 4 hours of entertainment? Not too shabby. And the fact that I got to keep most of my money is pretty sweet too.

Gambling is so stupid.

I hope your Grandmother doesn't read this post. She will be so dissapointed at that last sentence.
