Opening Day

River Spirit Casino officially opened at 10AM this morning. I could not be more thrilled. My life may return to a semi normal state over the next few days. Everyone here has been working like crazy over the last few months making sure this thing opened. Our parking lots are overflowing today. Whether you gamble or not, it truly is a spectacular facility. It feels like you are in Vegas and I do love Vegas. The restaurants are amazing. I could hang out at the dessert section of the buffet all day long and be a happy girl.

I honestly can't tell you the last time I worked an eight hour day. I worked nine hours over the weekend, fourteen yesterday and arrived very early this morning to help coordinate all the local news crews from the morning shows for on air interviews before the ribbon cutting. I know there are a lot of people here who have put in far more time than I have. I can only imagine how they are feeling because I know I am about to collapse! Thankfully, we are all getting a bonus day off within the next week. I don't know what I am going to do with myself. A three day weekend? Are you kidding me? I didn't know those actually existed anymore.

In other news, I am actually going to be home to watch American Idol tonight. I haven't spent an evening with my husband for a good five or six days. I'm looking forward to it and a very long, much need cardio session at the YMCA.

In other big news, New Kids on the Block are going back out on tour this summer. I'm debating between Dallas and Wichita. I'm already giddy!
