Retreat Day 3

Saturday March 26, 2011

Day 3 has arrived. I got up early, skipped my shower and started scrapping. We are going to the casino later and I have a goal.....60 pages. Needed to get crackin! We scrapped, ate lunch and finally I got ready for the day. We headed out to the casino with hopes of winning some money.

Once there, we got a drink and found a slot machine that was calling our names. Well, needless to say, mine hated me. I lost $20 right away, if you know me, that didn't sit well. I don't gamble and if I'm up $5 I cash out! I just enjoy the penny machines because $20 typically goes a long ways. Well, this time it didn't. Tiff on the other hand was standing behind me watching. The lady next to me cashed out and had won $80 on the machine next to mine. I told Tiff to play that machine, she didn't think she would win since that lady had. But she sat down and started playing anyway. Yeah, she won, the only one of us to win by the way. I should have taken her machine! She was up almost $100 but ended up with $50, which I would have taken to help cover the damage I had done yesterday at B. Bills.

We left the casino dissappointed (well maybe not Tiff)...but were excited to start scrapping again. Mari and Jill took off early and it was just the 4 of us left. We laughed so hard Saturday night and had a really great weekend. Tiff and I stayed up until 4 a.m. I came close to my goal, instead of 60 pages I got 57 done. I was pleased, I'm up to date now! Phew, what a feeling.

We can't wait to go back to Twin Maples (where we stayed) and have another girls weekend!

Their feelings when leaving the casino, Tiff is happy! The other two, not so much!

Oh lord, you should have seen the chaos of trying to take this picture. But we got one!

Laurie, won a whopping $0.

Tiff and her earnings.

Back at the cabin, getting back to work. We all miss our kiddos, but yet, I could stay another day ;)
