This weekend I’m in Las Vegas with Shayne for Wordcamp. It’s been a nice trip and a
wonderful break for Mommy. 🙂 Several nights without bathing and tucking in children, days
without laundry and dishes…..it’s lovely. I miss my kiddos and can’t wait to hold them as
soon as we get home, but I’m honestly enjoying my little vacation from reality!
Las Vegas itself disturbs me a bit. As we walk through the casino downstairs, I worry for
so many of the gamblers. Rarely do I see a smiling face or hear laughter. There is an air
of sadness and depression from all of the regulars. This town is a sickness and not
somewhere I will mark on my list of favorite cities.
I have had some fun and a little luck at one particular slot machine. I’ve won enough to
buy us dinner a couple of times and put a few bucks in my pockets. Guilt-free gambling can
be fun for a weekend, apparently. 🙂
As for Nerdcamp…um….Wordcamp, it’s been very interesting and even someone as removed from
the techie stuff as me can pick up some useful information about this amazing thing called
WordPress. In fact, the developer of WordPress is here and laid out lots of interesting
changes that lie in WordPress’s future. I think that maybe-just maybe-I’m a nerd just like
the rest of these Wordcamp guys. 🙂
