I’m Thankful…

November 24, 2010

that November is almost over!

Overall, november has been a horrible month.  T broke his arm.  My car needed $300+ of repairs.  We have no lovely plans for Thanksgiving.  I’m feeling grumpy.

We’re going to Vegas for Thanksgiving weekend, on account that it was the cheapest nearby vacation destination for someone with a broken arm (camping is out).  I am trying to have a good attitude, but I’m really not thrilled.  I wanted to go canoeing.  Or to wine country.  But things kind of fell through, and it does beat staying in L.A. for the weekend.

Honestly, I just want to be back in the chilly midwest, in a heated house surrounded by snow, eating turkey with my family.  And I don’t even like snow or turkey!

Do you have any tips for cheap eats or entertainment in Vegas?  I did the requisite goggle and have some ideas (and we’ve been before), but I’m always open to your suggestions!

    It’s been a few too many years since I’ve been to Vegas, so no good tips. But wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    Hooray for Vegas! Cheap by Vegas standards, I love the little creperie in the Paris hotel (it’s directly across from the entrance to the buffet)… and for cheap entertainment: PEOPLE WATCHING! 🙂

    I’m sure you December will be much better than November.

    We had a great dinner for not a huge amount of money at Firefly on Paradise, a tapas place in a plaza just east of the Strip.

    Have fun!!
