The arrangements have been made. We are driving to Las Vegas in late September with my mom. It is her birthday present from us. She is thrilled. She loves to gamble and is so looking forward to a vacation.
When I made the reservations, I requested connecting rooms. The woman said that she would note that Mom is incompetent and needed our assistance so we would be assigned connecting rooms. Ha! I laughed! Please don’t have that written anywhere my mom could read it. We began to talk about our moms and had a fun conversation.
Betty and Chip are meeting us there but they will be on the smoking floor!
Michael’s mom lives in Las Vegas. Our annual trip routine is to arrive in time for an early dinner then we gamble until midnight, sleep in, have breakfast delivered to the room, meet Mary at the hotel entrance, sit and talk then take her to a nice lunch. Afterwards, we usually find a lounge and chat for a few more hours before putting her in a cab for home. We then have dinner, gamble a bit then head to bed. We leave early the next morning. Too much time in Vegas is not a good thing.
For this trip in September, we still plan to have a great lunch on the second day with everyone including Mary but afterwards I think Betty, Chip and mom are going to take off to do some serious gambling. Mom will be in heaven. She is known not to eat at all while in a casino as it wastes time. Since we are going to be there for a few days, we will insist she takes some time out to eat. She is also known for leaving the hotel room about 4:00AM to get an early start to her gambling day. This is a real vacation for her. She will be so happy. I hope she does well.
