Last Weekend...

Yep...that's right. The hope has creeped in again and I truly believe that this is/was my last weekend of drinking for the next 9 months. Not that I won't be attending all of these great events that happen here on base...but I really hope that I get to be the DD for awhile!

So Friday night we went to a fundraiser for the New River was a beer and wine tasting evening, along with silent auction. I only had about 1 glass of wine total...I pretty much stuck to water for the evening. (Didn't say this was my last weekend????) But the food was great and the company was awesome! We did not win anything at the auction but the OSC made a decent amount of money for their scholarships...which is fantastic!

Then last night was the first big event at the Officer's Club for the year....Casino Royale. The club was decked out with slot machines, craps tables, roulette, blackjack and Texas Hold 'Em. And they were giving away free champagne (had one of those) and t-shirts (forgot to get one of those). The big give-away for the evening...a three month test drive of a BMW. There were 3 of those to win and they went to the highest chip holders....we were not even close in our chip count. The top winner had well-over $150,000 in chips. Damn Texas Hold 'Em...they win every time! BJ and I played blackjack all night and had so much is easier to make big bets when you are playing with fake money!

So today is lazy Sunday...with a splash of housework. I need to get some stuff done around here before ER/ET and I get relegated to the couch for a couple of days. We are having a BBQ at our house in 2 weeks for all the junior dental officers in BJ's battalion and lord knows we can't have people over without cleaning up. And when I say cleaning...I mean my OCD husband is currently steam cleaning our carpets upstairs....and will be moving onto our couch soon. Man, I love him!
