Wow. I have had such an awesome weekend.
#1 - The government sent back my property taxes. All $380.00 worth. I guess it comes out of my homeowners payments
or something. Anyway, the cash is mine.
#2 - I have been invited to participate in something huge. That's all I can say at this time, but it's a WOW! kinda
#3 - The big one! I went gambling with my parents in the mountains Sunday. I felt kinda guilty because I thought
I should be working and not playing all day. You don't make any money playing, doncha know. I suck at gambling.
I have no patience and I always end up broke in a nanosecond. So, I limited myself to $60.00. No more, no less.
And, needless to say, that $60 bucks was gone in a heartbeat. I had resigned myself to just watching my mom and
dad play for the remainder of the day when my Mom slipped me a $20.
"Just give it back if you win," she said.
So, I started to play. I won a few small pots, lost some more, won some more, etc. I just kept stuffing the cash
they gave me for my tiny jackpots into my pocket. When we left that afternoon, I counted it up.
That's it for me, today. Super weekend, which means the week coming up will promptly go to hell in a handbasket.
