Vegas, baby!

I'm "working from home" today as I leave for a week in Las Vegas for work. By "working from home" I mean that I slept in, watched an episode of _House_ on the DVR while eating breakfast, looked at a couple of work-related emails, and now am blogging. Oh, and the laundry is going, as I have to pack today.

Later I'll work out, shower and then go get a mani/pedi and then one of those spray tans (see illustration - mind you my body is this, plus 30 lbs! Thank you, IVF!). I've never had a spray tan before, so I'm looking forward to the illusion of being tan, without the skin damage. As a melanoma survivor I don't lay out in the sun. Strange word, "survivor." I hope to say one day, "I'm an infertility "survivor." Okay, infertility can't kill me, but still!

I won't be doing any blogging for at least a week, so don't call the coast guard if you don't hear from me for a while.

Have a great time! And I hope the spray tan comes out nicely. I've thought of doing that so let us know how it goes.

I've never been to Vegas and feel like some weirdo because I really have no desire to go. Is that odd?

Hope you had fun though and hope you didn't turn orange from your spray tan!

Have a good trip. If working in Vegas is anything like working at home, I'm sure it will be fun!

I realize that this comment is coming WAAAY late in the game but I had to comment. I'm a melanoma survivor as well - now I am short a large amount of flesh on my thigh and three lymph nodes, pesky cancer. I'm an AVID spray tanner but its expensive so I had to let you know, if you're in my boat, that I just discovered Nivea Sun Kissed Legs which doesn't have the overwhelming spray tan smell that deters me from most. :)
