Long weekends are a bit of a conundrum for me. I spend my time working and while I’m working I can’t stop wishing that I could just stop working and enjoy life. Then I get time to not work, and I end up trying to figure out how to spend it. So, how did I spend it?

their-beautiful-indoorOn Thursday I went to Atlantic City to gamble which seemed like a great idea, however, my enthusiasm pre AC did not hold up post AC. Without going into details, I got absolutely rocked. In the 4 different games I tried, I don’t think I was up at ANY point. I’ve done AC so many times that I know this can happenĀ but it’s just a horrible feeling. So this was the way I started the extended vacation.

There’s not much to note other than I went bowling a few times and just sort of killed time which left me to last night where I wasn’t feeling tip top and decided to call it a night. I woke up at 6 this morning, snapped this picture which I am using as symbolism for a fresh start.

I’m quoting Vince Lombardi here:
It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up.
