The fam and I packed up and went to Las Vegas for Thanksgiving. Not because we wanted to remember what we have and be grateful for it as we watched it go down the drain in a casino, but because Hubby’s brother lives there, and that’s where everyone likes to go for the holiday. (Just for the record, neither Hubby nor I have ever even played the slots, let alone the tables, I would be a confused mess if I ever did. Sometimes it’s just too hard for me to count to 21.)
If you’ve read my blog in the past, you know that a seven hour ride in the car pretty much equates to seven hours of torture for me. I get really bored. So, I prepared myself for seven fun filled hours of looking out the window and refereeing the fights between my children. (my wonderful hubby drove the whole way and didn’t make me take a turn!)
If you’ve ever gone down the interstate, you might notice a thing called an HOV lane. Now, these special little lanes clear on the left side of the road have been around for awhile, you would think most people would have the hang of them by now. Some people are under the misperception that as long as they have two people in the car, it’s just another lane, and it’s perfectly acceptable to putter along at 65 MPH. I would like to take this opportunity to enlighten the general population. The HOV lane is designed to encourage carpools, and to help those people not get bogged down by the rest of the traffic as much. If there was ever a lane to go faster in, it’s that one! Seriously, if you are only going to go 65, don’t get in the carpool lane! We got stuck behind so many slow people, it was ridiculous! Other than that, the drive actually wasn’t too bad. I’ll post more on the trip and the fun stuff we did and pictures later. Now, I am sooo ready to sleep in my own comfy bed!
