Viva Las Vegas?

Well, all I can say is I'm pissed. I have been looking forward to this trip for MONTHS and the day I am set to leave I start to get a tickle in my throat. I fought it to the best of my mental ability. I told myself that it was the change in the weather and that it wouldn't stick around. Unfortunately, here I sit now in this amazing hotel room with an insanely sore throat.

I have had a great time so far, but I just wanted to go all out and I haven't been able to do that. Thursday night when I got here I walked around The Venetian for about twenty minutes and then went to bed. Friday morning I was feeling good (loaded up with Advil and Dayquil). We walked around The Forum shops, had lunch, and played penny slots. After lunch I began to feel that run down sick feeling coming on so I took a nap in hopes that it would refuel (and maybe cure) me before the big Cirque O show. We head to the show and I just feel miserable. The show was amazing of course. The Cirque people are so incredibly talented. Not to mention we had such good seats. The husbands have really outdone themselves with this trip. We head back to the hotel and I just can't get myself to do anything. All my body wants to do is go to bed and my head is telling me to go gamble and have fun. My body won that fight only to wake up at 6:30 am in a lot of pain. When I get sick it never fails. It all goes to my throat. The constant burning and irritation is overwhelming sometimes. BUT, I am trying to get up and just make the best of it today. I mean, I feel stupid being whiny. Seth and I are going to get a massage. We are staying in the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. We went to a show last night that I have wanted to see for years. I just wish I felt better is all.

Seth says this just means we have to come back. Looks that way. Cross your fingers that sometime today my illness turns around and I have one really fun and crazy night!
