Work continues to be brutal. It's non stop. It's been over three weeks since I've had a day off. After working this weekend, I'm on pace to bill a solid 245 hours in June. That's "billed," not "worked." The latter number would be closer to 300. I've got a two day mediation scheduled for June 1-2 in D.C. Hopefully, after that, things will slow down . . . at least a bit. They better, because I'm scheduled for vacation beginning June 3rd.
I had been planning a trip to Vegas for nine days. But, given the way things were going, and given that my client is located in Vegas, I started thinking about just going off the grid for a bit. So, I booked a trip to Aruba. But, then, Lightning began blowing up twitter and texts with chip porn and stories from his recent trip to Vegas. And, suddenly, Vegas started sounding good again. I wavered back and forth between Aruba and Vegas almost daily. Finally, this morning, while taking a brief break from, well, brief-writing, I logged on to my MLIFE account and discovered I had 5 free nights at Aria. Jackpot! Decision made. Aruba cancelled. I mean, who needs Zika anyway?
So, I'll be getting in to Vegas Friday June 3rd, and staying at Aria through Tuesday. Then off to Signature for 4 more days before leaving Sunday June 12th. Unless, of course, I end up having to cancel. Which, given past history, will likely be the case. But, in the meantime, it's fun to think about 9 days in Paradise, Nevada.
