Rick and I leave Wednesday evening for four days in Las Vegas.  He's taking a class.  I'm laying around in my robe.

I have started "preparing" for us to be gone.  Stressful!  I just do what I do everyday because I do it. Putting it all on paper for someone else is treacherous!  My BFF Steph has "volunteered" to keep Dawson, Eli and Brynne until Friday when my mom will come and relieve her.  Praise God for her ... and I'm serious!  It really is such a blessing to have a friend who will go so over and beyond the boundaries of friendship so that I can recharge with Rick.  If I haven't said "thank you" ... "thank you, thank you, thank you a million times over!!"  And, yes, I owe you BIG!  Kyndal will be at her friend's house and is pretty self-sufficient (at least she thinks so), so I don't worry at all about her.  I don't worry about all the other kids, either, I just worry about the stamina of the Thomason clan!  Seriously, you guys are the best!

I should have done so much more than I've done today!  In two days I need to clean this house from top to bottom, get us packed, get them packed, get all required notes and snacks and school supplies, etc., and just get generally prepared to be away for several days.  I am very excited to spend some time with Rick.  Our last time alone was last June when we went to Bermuda.  In case you forgot how wonderful it was, here's a reminder ...

I wish Las Vegas looked a little more like this, that I was as tan as this and that it would be as warm as this.  Since none of those things will happen, I'll just have to look forward to the bright city lights of the Vegas strip.  This will be an all-different kind of vacation!  We are staying at The Venetian.  I have always dreamed of staying there.  I hope we have time to take a gondola ride.

Until then, I'm off to start getting ready ...


  1. What a GREAT time you'll have. That is one of our favorite destinations and THE VENETIAN...the perfect place to be pampered!! Soak it up like it was sunshine in Bermuda!!

    Your Ozarks Pal!

  2. THat is what BFF's do for each other!!! I know I will come knockin on your door someday needing a favor! Don't worry! You guys have fun and when you put my $20 in that machine and win me a million it will all be worth it!! LOL!!! I am so glad you and Rick get a chance to get away together. LOVE U!
