    I got on the road to meet my sisters & SILs for a couple of days at the casino in the Dells. Not a bad trip ~ 3 hours away.

    I won $185 with an investment of $20. I was feeling lucky but left the slots while I was ahead of the game. My sis & I sat & watched & chatted while the rest of the group cont'd to play.

    I got on the road home on Sunday & got stuck in Eau Clare WI as the interstates were being shut down all around me. My winnings paid for a night in a king suite with Chinese delivered to my door. What a luxury & an extra night away from wonderland to boot.

    I still smile at all the laughs & goofiness ~ it was such a fun time. I'm determined to sell my little house & move closer to family. It's sorely needed.

    Just wanted to share my good fortune with you all.

    That makes me so happy:)
    I think you should do everything you can to move as close to your family as possible.
    Family is really all we have when it comes to true love.

    And I think moving closer to family is a brilliant idea.

    I'm so glad you got a break from difficult child-land and to win $$$ too :) I hope that you can move closer to family.

    Oh how wonderful! :) I was relaxed just reading about it. Yes, find a way to move closer to your family.

    I am glad you stopped and stayed safe - that was a nasty storm. My neighbor was in the cities Saturday night but cut her visit short and drove home that night. She got home about midnight but a much safer drive than if she waited until Sunday to head back.

    So what was your strategy? lol..........(never mind - I'll never get to go)

    I'm happy for you though~ and all that remodeling will SURELY pay off too! GOOD FOR YOU TIMER! Way To Go.

    Oh and by the way - that puppy picture is ADORABLE I could just kiss her little face every time I see her I love KCSpaniels. One of my favs for years and years.

    Sounds like someone, somewhere up there thought you needed a break *woot*. Good timing and great to see you getting a break you needed.

    Thanks ladies, I had such a good time with my family. My sisters & SILs are some of my best friends & we laughed like crazy women. The annual cook off is coming up in March & will be spending time with my family again. It's a healing time for me.

    Love, Esther

    Linda that sounds like a lovely weekend. I give you a lot of credit for venturing out in that weather, we were pretty much snowed in. I hope you do move closer to family, then those fun times can happen more often.
