Last night Eric and I had a very fun evening at Turning Stone Casino! I can't remember the last time we were there. We had a fabulous evening!
We went because my dear friend Melissa was spending the weekend there. I've known Melissa for 13 (almost 14!) years now. She came into my life at the most perfect time. I had answered her classified ad for child care provider after I had Alex, when my first option didn't work out. She was a god send. She watched Alex for the first 18 months of his life. (Until she had another child and decided not to watch other people's children anymore.) We hit it off immediately and have remained friends ever since. It was so nice to see her again. She now lives near Albany, so we're hoping to get together again soon, and not wait another 10 years!
Eric and I being silly at Turning Stone. Melissa took us up to their room. We'd never seen one of the hotel rooms before. Made me want to spend a few days! Very fun!!
This was the not-so-Lucky Lemmings slot machine. It stole some of my money. But.... in the end, I won. Eric and I each brought $40. I was down to my last $5 or $6, then ended up with a spin that let me walk away with $53. I was SO happy! Eric went home with $37 of his $40. So altogether, we won $10. Not bad for a few hours of fun!
