The day has arrived!

First thing in the morning, I'm headed to Vegas. Ranger and I are headed to Vegas, rather. And it couldn't come at a better time.

There's a lot of pressure at work and home right now. Relations are strained with my mother and I. I'm worried about my son and Drama Queen. Thank goodness, he's working 10-hour days all week. That will keep him busy and tired, and when he's tired, he's not social.

Ranger has relented on the Vegas wedding idea. So, this will actually be a trip to relax. Well, when I'm not in the conference. I told Ranger I was sorry I had to work so much during the trip, but his perspective is that it's my work that's making this trip affordable for us, so he doesn't mind.

"If all I got this week was to have you fall asleep in my arms and wake up beside you in the morning, then it would still be a perfect week," he said. Very sweet.

I have vendors coming out of the woodwork to wine and dine me during the conference. That's a new thing for me, since I've not been at one of these conferences before as a "decision-maker" at my college. Ain't it cool?

I've never been to Vegas before. I'm not sure what to expect, but I have Ranger for a guide. I'll update as often as possible, dear Diary. Wish me luck!

Luck! We went there last October. Fascinating. Lots to see. Great if you have time to see the shows. A bit...scary and sad in some ways. Lots of smoking which made me a bit ill during our stay, but going to The Venetian and seeing Phantom of the Opera with second row seats made it all worthwhile.
