Believe it or not, I'm blogging from Las Vegas tonight. It's been a pretty atypical vacation. The plane ride here kind of sucked. I'm not sure what was up with Sam-- either his ears hurt, or his teeth hurt... something hurt, because he screamed for about 2 hours of the 4.5 hour flight. He slept through the landing... as people filed out of the plane, they looked at the angelic-looking child, and one-by-one commented along the lines of, "Sure, now he sleeps."

He was under the weather for our entire first day here (Monday)... cranky, not eating, etc. Jonathan, too, wasn't feeling well... so we did a brief walk on the strip, and ended up hanging out in our "villa" for the rest of the day... watching The Wiggles over and over and over. Sam LOVES the Wiggles.

I will say, however, that this villa is pretty awesome. I'm on an Internet station, and can't find the link... but it's the Westgate Flamingo Bay, which I highly recommend. Our room is bigger than my house!!! It's 2 bedrooms, living room, dining room, full kitchen, 2 full bathrooms, huge jacuzzi tub... quite nice.

Yesterday, Jonathan & Sam were perking up... we saw the MGM Grand & a few other hotels... did some outlet shopping... got a nice Mexican dinner (Weight Watchers? What Weight Watchers?). Sam has not quite adjusted to the time change, so he was asleep for the night at 6:30... Jonathan & I ended up going to sleep pretty early as well.

Sam is feeling MUCH better today-- we went to Hoover Dam this morning, which was pretty amazing... Unfortunately, Jonathan is still sick (worse)... so it's 7:15 p.m. and Sam and Jonathan are both sound asleep, and I'm on my own in Vegas. There's a shuttle bus from our resort in to the strip that leaves in about a half hour... so I will hop on that.

I'm not sure it's an up-side... but I've gotten a LOT of knitting done. I started the match to "grandma's cataract surgery" sock on the plane here... I've done the whole ankle, and the heel flap, and the heel turn... getting ready to start the gusset. I was thinking "Gee, I really have to buy some sock yarn..." and then I checked www.Wendyknits.net, and followed the link to the Critter Knitters prize page, and found out I had won prize #54... 2 balls of Regia sock yarn (and needles & a charm!) YAY!

So that's my existence at the moment. Wish me luck if I end up in a casino tonight!
