Even Dirty Debbie Has A Mom

Sorry folks, I was so excited about my latest trip that I didn't get a chance to post about it before I left.
Every fall I take my Mom to the casinos in Atlantic City, and just because I was sick earlier in the month, that didn't hold me back. I left for my Mom's place Wednesday after work and we left for AC the next day.
As always, we had a great time. We always need the little get away. One thing that helped relax me and made me stop worrying about my health condition was a meal at a premier steakhouse at the Casino. I had the first 'real' meal since I got out of the hospital: filet mignon with Bernaisise sauce, mashed potatoes, grilled asparagus, fresh bread, a glass of Merlot, and creme brulee. I know it wasn't the best meal for me physically, but t sure helped my spirit.
As for the betting, it was one of my more lucky outings. I returned with over $500 in winnings.
After AC we came back here to Maryland so she could see the new place and enjoy some much deserved down time (at 70 she is still working).

Some of my regular readers may notice that my mom and I spend a lot of good times together.
My mom and I have a great relationship. I lived with her after my divorce and the child and I stayed with her until I got back together with CJ 17 years later.
I owe her a lot, and now we just have good times together. I'm lucky.
In spite of all that, I think I'll wait until after Monday when she goes home to return to the usual content in the diary.

It sure was a lucky trip. Usually people walk out of casinos with just the clothes on there backs.

Always good when you come back with money. Nice to hear about you and your mom. Wish you both well.
