The Weekend

8:42 PM Edit This 13 Comments »
Captain Keebler (aka Steve Wilson, aka Mr. Airplane, aka The Pilot, who will now be known at Captain Keebler), and I went to Omaha for the weekend. Last minute, which I'm not accustomed to, but was very happy to experience. We went to a dance venue called Jitterbugs on Friday night and I danced and danced and got some tips from the instructor on West Coast Swing, got to bed at one and got up at five to take the balloon up with some of his friends on Saturday morning. Once again, I'd like to point out what a good helper I am. It was COLD. Then we hung out at the hotel pool, took naps, then went to the Omaha Zoo. More about the murder on his blog.

I'm in between a gorilla and an orangutan. Somehow that does not make me that happy.

However, Steve's hands are totally orangutan.

Then, I gambled. Holy cow. I've never been to a casino. We played the Wheel of Fortune penny slots. When my machine started dinging and being loud, I just shrugged and the lady next to us said in a very condescending tone, "You need to press the screen." I laughed.

I won 30 dollars. The ten dollars Steve lost, the ten dollars I had and ten more. So I asked him to go to the bathroom (we were accosted at the entrance and told that cameras were forbidden.) and take a picture of my voucher and we cashed out and left to go dancing.

I did lots of first time things again. The Omaha Zoo, the casino, dancing with strangers at Jitterbugs. And for once, enjoyed Easter. Tomorrow is Therapy Tuesday and I'm taking the day off. To do nothing. And that makes me very, very happy.

Sometimes last minute trips can make for some very fond memories. My hubster and I, along wih his big bro and wife, went completely unprepared to Niagra Falls. It was a totally fun mess of a trip, but we are all cheesing in each and every photo.

You had a blast! Happy for ya'!

I like the sounds of doing spontaneous things with a boy you like. Especially when it involves hot air balloons and zoos. Go happy you!

I've never gambled either! I've been in a casino in Vegas (wasn't 21) and on a cruise ship (wasn't feeling it), but it's on my bucket list fo shiz.

Henry Doorly Zoo rocks!

About the only day I liked in school was the field trips there.
