I’ve been wanting to write an entry for days now, but things have been kind of crazy. My back has been messed up and I’ve been sick- didn’t even get out of bed yesterday.

I just spent the past five hours playing Roller Coaster Tycoon and Hoyle Casino. I just bought them two days ago, and I’m having a lovely time sitting on my butt. I didn’t like RCT at first when I played it, and was really kicking myself for spending that much money that I didn’t have on a game I didn’t even like. However, I just spent about 4 hours playing it, and now I’m hooked. However, I am horrible, terrible, awful at building roller coasters or any ride where I have to lay out the track myself. (And I really thought that “rollercoasters” was one word, but Word spell check is telling me otherwise, so hummm…) I wish I could design really snazzy rides with loops and hills and such, but it just doesn’t work out. This makes me sad.

Hoyle Casino makes me very happy, because I get to play lots of blackjack and poker! I have learned a new game, too- Caribbean Stud Poker, which I’m starting to get the hang of. Playing this makes me very excited to be going to Vegas for my birthday. I plan to make a killing at blackjack, and perhaps decide to move there and become a cocktail waitress.

Tomorrow is a busy day, and feeling like I do, I’m not 100% sure I’m up for it. I’m doing Karen’s tickets in the morning, which will be from about 8-11, I need a chiropractor appointment, which I’ll try to get in at noon, I need Monica to do my hair, which I don’t think I even have time for, then I have my bank run from 1:30-3:30, and MK meeting from 6-8. I’m thrilled to be doing tickets, because I REALLY need the money. I’m thrilled to get my back and hair done, too, so maybe I’ll live.

So, not much going on really. I guess this isn’t so much of a post as just an “I’m still here, still breathing, carry on.” sort of things. No news is good news, right?
