A Week in Vegas

The Sphinx and me in Vegas. Just hanging out.

A week in Vegas was just what the doctor ordered, but coming back and not having any of my writing finished has me in a bit of a tailspin. Don’t get me wrong – I am not complaining! But when you have a writing routine and you take time away it can be very difficult to get back on track.

I had a great time in Vegas – Saw the Titanic exhibit, the dolphin and tiger habitats, saw the ‘pirate show’ at Treasure Island, the exploding volcano at The Mirage, participated in a television screening of a new television show, did the C.S.I.~ The Experience and best of all, went to see Phantom of the Opera. The themed hotels were fascinating. My favorite – The Luxor. Egyptian theme. I will definitely stay there next time.

I put a grand total of $12.00 into a slot machine, cashing out at $25.00. That’s right, I doubled my money in Vegas. I am one of those rare success stories.

I brought my laptop along with me, with the idea that I would spend some time every night writing so I wouldn’t fall behind. Jennifer and I have a two-chapters-per-week deal. But at the end of each 105 degree (F) day, collapsing was far more likely. Okay, maybe that is an exaggeration. Two of the days I was there actually cooled down to 98 degrees.

The point is, I didn’t get any writing done. Not in the hotel room, not on the flights. I am looking forward to seeing Jennifer on Wednesday, and I am praying that I will be able to cram two chapters in before then.

In the meantime, here are some photos of the trip… enjoy!
