About Me

Name: Elleoz

From: Fort Mill, South Carolina, United States

I am 32 years old and have been married for 6 years. I had two children under 2 (hence the blog name), but now they are actually 3 and 2. Maybe it is time to change the blog name? Drama Queen is 3 and Wildman is 2 (15 months apart to be exact). I have a Bachelor's Degree on Criminal Justice from Applachian State University (Go Apps!) and have been at my current place of employment for going on 7 years.

    Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner!
    After an evening and afternoon of rollercoaster emotions and drama over whether we would or would not be going to Cherokee this weekend, we finally got the all's clear for takeoff. You see...some lovely local gas station split god knows how much gasoline into the reservations water supply. For several days the only thing open in Cherokee NC was the casino, grocery stores, and gas stations. All hotels and restaurants were closed due to the water contaimination.

    We were reserved for this weekend, and then told that they could put us in a hotel in Maggie Vally NC for Friday night, but there were no guarantees for Saturday. There was no way that we were going to take the kids and uproot them after a day. It's hard enough when you have to stay in one place with those two.

    And of course, I missed an opportunity to meet a fellow blogger due to the maylay. Erin, I am so sorry that your plans didn't work out. I hope you get to reschedule your trip soon. (I know she totally thinks I am stalking her! :0 ) We will get together soon. That is if I haven't scared you away with my enthusiasm.


    We got to Cherokee about 8:30 pm. Of course both babies fell asleep about 20 minutes before we got there. But they were so good. I got the room all situated, them in their jammies, and off to sleep they went. Drama Queen and Wild Man even went to sleep with the TV on. They must have been tired. Of course WM's pack-n-play was where he couldn't see it, but after the event otherwise known as Niagara Hell, I was terrified he wouldn't sleep. But he did great both nights. So proving that it was a combo of teething and lack of naps that sent my little baby boy into a tailspin last month. I was in bed by 10:30 myself. I have to say Harrah's has the most comfortable beds. If they came with a masseuse it would be absolutely heaven.

    Oh, I forgot to mention that there was a ban on drinking the water. That was a little interesting. The water was safe for bathing, but not for consumption (even though I think we would have been fine considering there was so much chlorine it smelled like a pool) so they provided us with all the bottled water we could drink. Free water anyone? oh me! me! I think we have a 12 pack now in our fridge. We are sooo bad I know :)

    Satruday I played blackjack in the morning, but broke even after 3 hours or so. I don't know why I bother playing during the day. I never do well. But later that evening I hit the motherload baby! At 4 am I walked back to room with $755 dollars in my pocket. Yes, $755!!! And at one point I was down to $30. I even got a special purple chip worth $500! I usually do ok (as in $200 or so) but to actually WIN $575 (I started with $180) at electronic blackjack? YEAH BABY! Now I can pay off my credit card. Whoo hoo! I so wish I didn't have a credit card balance so that I could be irresponsible and blow it all, but I'll be good. I might buy a guitar though. I so want to learn how to play.

    Alpha Male is so jealous! *evil laugh* He wanted to go down Saturday night (since I never am there that late) but I couldn't stop at midnight when he wanted me to. I was doing too well. He got a free dinner out of the whole thing so he should be happy!

    But all in all it was a good weekend. For those that were inquiring about the status of AM and I? We are ok for now. I still haven't forgotten what he has said, but I am hoping as I get better so will our relationship. Thanks so much for all the kind words. I really appreciate it!

    And to those that have stopped by through Erin's site. Thanks and come again please! The more the merrier!

    Man.... I can't believe I missed that kind of fun! I would have loved to watch you win all that money!

    Free bottled water?? You lucky girl, lol. I live on the stuff, I go through 2 cases a week because I can't drink the tap water here (well, I probably could, but i wouldn't even chance it, lol)

    Anyhoo... glad you had a great time! And NOOOOO I don't think you're stalking me, LMAO!!

    We'll definately do it again soon!
