    Got a pseudo promotion at work and stress has been running high so taking a quick trip. Staying overnight in council bluffs and back home tomorrow. Just chilling with the kids for a little bit more before leaving. Obv. a pretty short trip, but follow along if you want to see the Midwestern landscape haha!

    I'm mostly going to just hang at Horseshoe, might get bored and go to Harrah's (but I doubt it). Slight chance I'll go to a bar in council bluffs that I have a familial connection to (if so, likely my first Uber or Lyft ride).

    Going to get out about $1500 there though hope to only blow a few hundred. Mostly slots, might play poker but who knows, depends on my mood. Going to get a blu ray player or other electronic device (I actually could use the blu ray, just pre-ordered the new Star Wars movie but don't have a Blu Ray yet lol, we rarely buy movies, and when we do it's usually on amazon digital.

    Bag packed and ready to go (sorry, could still see my last name on the bag :)). Of course it's excessively sized for a day trip, I could have brought a back pack, haha. My toiletries are all prepacked for Vegas most of the time and it's just easier to grab them this way than repack them.

    Biggest decision of the night....Dirty Shirleys or Beer??? I usually drink beer local and shirleys in vegas, so that's the likely route, but we'll see what my mood brings when I get there....

    The offer - as I mentioned, I kind of want the Blu Ray, and I'm not planning on playing CET much this year, but we'll see what happens. We could always use a TV in our Lego room ;)

    Well, good news is hubby totally detailed my car and it was super clean! Made it here without running out of gas, even checked into hotel already.

    However....I ride the elevator to my room with a group of folks and a manager of the hotel. She is showing them a sample room. We turn down the hall, and wouldn't you know, she's showing them the room I'm supposed to be going into! I stood awkwardly in the hall waiting, don't think they noticed when they came out that I went right in there. Hope they don't need to do that again!

    Has a possibly smokey odor (mild, but giving me a damn headache). Kinda cranky about it, but the casino will be worse and the check in person wasn't very nice about check in so I'm not going to say anything. She also didn't give me a platinum arrival gift (I'm at a Marriott), so I'm going to charge something small to the room to make sure it will show up on my account and try to do that whole call later and get a little extra since they didn't offer (never had to do that but I know it exists)

    Grabbing a quick snack in General Manager's club. Only had a PBJ with kids so pretty hungry. Diamond aspiration level 2 and higher have access to it. It's in addition to the Diamond lounge. I think both have actual food around 5 (Sometimes GM lounge has really good food, I imagine it's likely I'll eat in here tonight at some
