So here's a random thought... Do butterflies feel humans in their stomachs when they're nervous? It's 4 days 3 hours 57 minutes 23 seconds until our huge family trip. Am I excited. Heck yes! However I could puke from all the nerves. In fact... erm, give me a moment... nope, not to worry, just another fleeting butterfly. The big pack has commenced. I really do mean big pack.

was back to the casino for food. He ended up eating a KFC twister. We
discussed going to the movies and I checked my email, then we decided on
the casino. I won a ...
