My husband and I went to dinner at Texas Station Casino tonight with friends. As I was waiting for him to return from the restroom as we were leaving, I had time to stop and really look around and listen. I smiled as I noticed all the different sounds that you hear in a casino. There was the lounge singer, all the people talking, the sounds of all the bells and noises of the slot machines. The sound of coins being paid out....but of course in Vegas...it's fake. The slots don't give you real money anymore. Just little paper tickets. What an atmosphere! There are little kids everywhere because they have the bowling alley and the movie theater in the casinos as I mention in a previous post. They are fascinated by all the sounds and colors. What a world we live in. As my husband and I are walking to the parking garage, I look at all the people sticking their money in the machines, hoping, praying for that big win. On the progressive machines, the numbers keep going up and up. I start to believe that saying...money is the root of all evil. As we drive home, I say to my husband that it must be a full moon out because this week has just been NUTS! And just before we get home, I see it. I was right! After my horrible day at work on Wednesday, things just went downhill from there. My payroll employee ended up in the hospital. I had told her to go to the Dr., because she looked horrible. On Thursday morning I called her to make sure she was alright and she was on her way to the Dr. A few hours later, she called and said they were taking her to the emergency room by ambulance. She finally got put into a room at about 5:30pm. She has no family here in Las Vegas. I feel for her. My husband and I went to the hospital and got her car keys from her and went to her Dr. Office and picked up her car and drove it home for her. She is still in there tonight. I have been talking with her and making sure she is OK. When they release her, I will be picking her up and bringing her to her house. I don't want her to feel like she is all alone in this. Then, today at lunch, Jen got a call from her mother. her father has taken a turn for the worse and is asking to see his kids because he feels like he is not going to live. She is on her way to Albuquerque to be with her father. Please keep her and her family in your prayers. I am taking care of her kitties while she is gone. Anybody who knows Jen, knows that I have been entrusted with a great responsibility as those are her sweet peas. I feel like the mother hen of the office, taking care of all the little chicks. I don't think I can handle anymore heartbreak this week. Please Lord, keep everybody safe and sound! Well I had better rest up this weekend because next week will be rough without those 2 ladies at work....It's Month end and Quarter End...and just little 'ol me... I will be busy!
P.S. Just wanted to say thank you to all the people who comment on my blog. It's nice to know that I have support! Thanks!
