And believe it or not, we're home with a few hundred dollars in our pockets even after having somehow convinced Lady Luck to cover all our meals, drinks, souvenirs and gifts PLUS tickets to see Elton John at Caesar's Palace.
(Thank goodness for a husband with a will of steel who can actually walk away once he wins!)
The trip was a ton of fun and a welcome diversion, but shortly after we arrived home late at night on Easter Sunday - our first without mom - we realized that the real business of grieving has barely begun.
There are changes afoot in the DMD household - there are life-altering decisions being made and now that we are home there is no imminent glitzy and glamorous get-away to distract us from our current difficult and stressful reality.
My brain is buzzing. My head is full of things I am not yet ready to write about. And so for now I leave you with these...
