I'm going to Atlantic City today with my mom and my aunt, we're staying over and coming back tomorrow. I love AC, love gambling, despite my seemingly unending losing streak. This is where my perpetual optimism ends up hurting me... I just KNOW I'm going to win big some day, I mean, I just have to! No one can lose ALL the time, right? Right? Well wish me luck, I need it.
We're also going for the shopping, AC has really great outlets, including Coach. We always get some good stuff. In the words of Joey Tribiani, "This is where I win my money back!" LOL
I've been looking forward to this for months and now that it's here.... I'd say I'm still 50% excited and 50% nervous. I left the girls all the time to go to Philly without a second thought. I knew they'd be fine and at the time Jack needed me more. But the girls are so different now, so much bigger and more aware. They have their own personalities, things they like and dislike that only I know. I feel like they're going to miss me.
When Charlotte was wide awake at three this morning, my first thought was "I'm going to ATLANTIC CITY! Tomorrow you are someone elses problem in the middle of the night!" But then I thought, how sad when she wakes up and I'm not there! I'm in AC losing Daddy's money!! WHAT kind of mother am I?
I know they'll be fine - my mother in law and sister in law are both coming to stay with them, and it's only for one night, and I realllllly need a break. And maybe this will be the time I win big!! I have lots of plans for my money already!
See.... perpetual optimist. :)
