I really dislike flying, so I have to do some serious meditation to get on a plane. I also have to do some serious meditation while flying. This is the kind of stuff we sober alcoholics used to do when we had a culture of not medicating every single thing. I am sure a younger alcoholic with a fear of flying would just take xanax with impunity, but not me. I can pray instead.
This two nights in Loveland, Colorado was probably not necessary - the snowstorm was not even fraction of what was predicted. However, I got a nice day of rest. I think it did me a world of good. I swear I look ten years younger than I did on Thursday night. Being tired is not a good beauty strategy.
I may or may not opt to blog from Vegas. I am taking my computer. But I called the hotel where I shall be staying to see if there is wifi in the rooms - there is not. There is "internet available" for a charge of $13.95 a day. This, on top of the $600. per night room rate - wow. (and, no, I am not paying $600. per night, but only because I really worked to find a deal.) Sometimes I get cheap with the weirdest things. Penny wise and pound foolish? Perhaps.
So, the wonderful thing is: I am going to my son's wedding! Tomorrow I will have a daughter-in-law! My son will have a wife! My daughter, through circumstances too complicated to chronicle here, will be getting ready for the wedding with me in my hotel room - which means I have someone to zip my dress! I am glad I didn't spend TOO much time sweating that one. Oh, and I will go from 17º Colorado morning to a 71º Las Vegas afternoon. You gotta love that!
I am excited, I better get going.
