I just got some time off approved by the big boss in the office and I'm hitting the road! The first stop is Foxwoods Resort Casino! Yeah baby! I'm heading down to Foxwoods with Lynne and June from my poker league....and maybe Marvin too. I will be at Foxwoods May 8th -May9th. The trip coincides with Lynne's birthday, but I'm tagging along for the poker.
The last time I was at Foxwoods was for my 40th birthday FOUR YEARS AGO so I am due. I remember playing a few sit n goes and cashing in one. I also remember feeling very intimidated. I don't think that wil be the case this time. :) They are going for Sunday & Monday. My plan is to hit a satellite while I'm there and win entry to a bigger game, but the FOXWOODS POKER SCHEDULE doesn't seem to be working, so I cannot view anything.
If you're in the area, stop by the Poker Room at Foxwoods. I'll be at the table that has a crowd railing a very lucky girl. Heh.
Then, the last week of July, I'm hitting NH. We are renting a cabin on a lake for one week. Every year my friends Rene & Kim (who are like sisters to me) and their family rent a bunch of cabins on a lake in NH. And every year they invite us and we decline. This year we're going! It's Rene's parents, and her and her 4 siblings, plus ALL OF THEIR KIDS. They rent pretty much every cabin on the lake, but Rene's dad called and said there was one cabin left and did I want it. Super cheap too. $525 for the week. It's like only a step up from camping. (there's beds and a bathroom)
Evan is sooooo excited. There will be about about 10 kids ranging from 11 yrs old to 18 yrs old. They all call me Auntie Josie and I am their favorite aunt cuz I play with them all and
drown them spend time with them, which is fine for a day...but we're talking 7 consecutive days! God help me. If you don't hear from me after a week, send help!!!!
I dunno about this whole week stuff. Kinda worried that it's too much time in close quarters. 7 days of....swimming, fishing, canoeing, suntanning (that's real tanning not oompa loompa orange, you biatch), campfires and stories by Very Josie. Oh and card playing at night. It should be fine. I'm going to bring a stack of books but I doubt I'll be left alone long enough to read. Hmmm a week without internet access though. That could be tough.
