I was hoping to write something before we left and get it published, but the last three days have been incredibly busy getting ready to come to this conference for work in Las Vegas. The good news is that we (my wife and I) arrived safely and will have four days without kids. Yay!
I think she is making the time zone transition fairly well. She managed to stay up until 1 am Eastern time which was 10 pm here. Now it is 7:30 here so the day should seem like a normal day. I stayed up an hour later and woke up about an hour ago, but that still gave me almost 7 hours of sleep so I should be OK. The problem is the incredible headache I am having. Don’t think I got my usual dose of caffeine yesterday.
Anyway, there is probably not a lot to talk about when it comes to Las Vegas and cash flow other than stuff is really expensive. The conference is being held at the Wynn so we are in Encore. A bottle of water in the mini-bar costs $9. Thank goodness I am being reimbursed otherwise I wouldn’t be staying here.
My wife and I will have time in the evenings to catch a few shows so the only real costs for the trip will be our own entertainment, her plane ticket, and her food. Today is a free day so we will have to figure out what to do once she wakes up and try to catch a show tonight. I want to see either Criss Angel or CSI and she is wanting to see one of the Cirque du Soleil shows or Blue Man Group. We will have to see if we can get a deal on something since Blue Man was over $125 per ticket just to get in the door.
So while I try to figure out what shows to attend and how to get the cheapest price, check out the carnivals in which my blogs were included over the past couple weeks:
