Wow...what a place!  I'll definitely say it's not someplace I'd want to take my children, and if we did, they wouldn't go outside.  The strip was littered with a bunch of "junk".  Men (and women) stood on the street handing out "Calling Cards" for girls and people would just throw them on the ground.  No if it weren't for that, it wouldn't be so bad!

We stayed in the Stratosphere Tower Hotel, which was at the North end of the Strip...The Strip was 4 miles long.  Most of what we wanted to see was at the South end, so we did a lot of walking!  I had 3 blisters by the 1st day!  We quickly picked up a bus pass and used it.

We basically ate 1 meal a day (usually Buffet) and snacked the rest of the day.  Those Hotels are amazing!  The way they structured them like different places in the world!  WOW!

Las Vegas here we come!

I just can't believe that I'm only days away from going to Las Vegas! Kevin and I leave on Saturday morning!!  I'm taking the boys to my parent's house on Friday (that's when Spring break starts for them).  I haven't been away from the twins for more than 1 night since they've been born.

I'm excited to be spending time with just Kevin...we need this time together to recharge!

This sounds so pathetic!!

So over the past few months, I've been pondering how I've been treated as a friend.  I've realized that I have more online friends than real life friends.  It's a sad reality that I am faced with.  I've posted before how I've been treated with my real life friends and it's not like I've completely "cut them out", but I've "given up".  I'm tired of being the one who has to initiate conversations, calls, etc.

So fast forward to 2 weeks ago.  I wanted to go out shopping...Kevin didn't want to go, he told me to go ahead and go.  So I sat here and thought, "Who can I call to go with me shopping?"  I came up with NO ONE!  I went through my whole address book...and nothing!  The people who lived close enough to me to go, I wouldn't really consider them close friends, well, not close enough to ask to go shopping with...the ones I used to ask, they live so far away and have a life of their own.

So here I am...the reality has hit me like a brick!  I don't have a close friend like I used to have.  Maybe I'm living in the past where no one had a family or whatever, but it's a very sad thing.  I have my husband, he is my friend, my best friend, but that's not what I want.  I want a close girlfriend to go out with, to call when I need to chat, etc.  These are things I've had before...I had them when I was in Ohio years ago...I had them when I was in Colorado....I had them when I was in Minnesota...why not now?

Ok, I'm done sounding pathetic!

I have finished the 40 Days of Purpose!  WOW!  There was a lot of good information in that many things I'm working on.  I feel as though I've been attacked throughout this whole study!
