Lucky streak continues

I wanted to write a quick post about some luck I've been having lately. It's not going to sound all that exciting to a lot of people, but some of you will appreciate it!!

This morning at 8:45 sharp the workers came back to work on our floor, and are still banging away. That part I wish I could do without, but needs to be done. Ever heard a hammer on concrete before? Imagine that for 8 hours straight. Actually, that being said I can't believe the guys have barely stopped. Masonry work is killer on backs, and now I can see why!

Again, I'm hoping that they will continue showing up until the job is done. I just want my bedroom floor back!

                    Can you see all the tiles torn out? Well that's just in my bedroom! Can you              
                        imagine hammering out all that concrete by hand? Eeeek...35 tiles in total :(

My other streak of luck came from a night spent at the Dubai Palace Casino. I've now been there all of two times, and can say I am definitely walking away a winner. Okay, so this is the part where my story sounds less cool. I won $600 pesos yesterday playing the slot machines. Sure, it's not a great deal of money, but I had a great time. I had 2 free beers, and a glass of red wine and 4 hours of entertainment. I am one happy camper :)

I'm not much of a gambler, and hubby doesn't like losing his hard earned money either. We know that it's easy to get carried away, but we think we'll go back again soon.

Hoping my luck sticks around for a little bit!!

We love going to the casinos (Play City in Plaza Kukulcan is our favorite)

To not throw away so much money, Jorge and I usually play together taking turns, and and only play about $100 - $200 pesos each. Once I won $1000, once I won $1500 and another time I won $4000! I usually lose though haha

Hahaha - well, I'm now in that club!! I had such a good time.

Gill plays the tables, and I play the slots. However, we each are only willing to play/lose SO much. You know? We set a limit. So far, so good. LOL. Especially if you factor in the free booze!!!

Have you been to Playboy? My cousin and Gill went there the other day... They preferred their tables as they had live dealers...I didn't go, but would like to at least check it out! Heck, my cousin's friend works there - SMALL world :)

Ohhh and super YAY on your winnings!! Hahaha , I know mine wasn't much, but made me happy... I can't imagine how happy I'd have been had it been 4000 :)

Good for you! Having your tiles replaced is a major accomplishment and I know I would be happy winning $600 pesos!
