    I won about $500 in Vegas over the weekend. Of course, I lost about $200 of it before I left, but I still came out $300 up. That's a first for me. Sadly, my bills are calling its name.

    Way to go! It's always great to hear when people win in Vegas. Extra money is always a wonderful surprise.

    My sig. other likes poker in Vegas, but has only come out ahead when a plane flight forced a departure before all the winnings could be lost again.
    And the good news about that is that we live far, far away from Vegas, so these trips are pretty rare!

    Hubby FINALLY got a job today. After 6 weeks. The pay is a LOT less than he was making, so its not the greatest, but its something while he continues to look for a better position in management. He's not in management currently with this job. BUT his 82nd Airborne experience got him this job and he didn't want to put it on his resume. But his boss was also in the 82nd and that's what got him hired. I say, if it works, go for it.

    That coupled with my beloved Gators winning the national championship last night are good news indeed. 2 out of 3 is not bad. Especially on the job front. Now we need to tally up expenses, loans, etc. and make up a budget to pay everyone back, get our billls paid and what all.

    the 1 our of 3 is that my fibromyalgia and my interstitial cystitis are in full flareup at the moment. Went to the dr. this morning, to another this afternoon and a 3rd tomorrow. All specialists that are trying to treat me so I can function. I've been so bad the last few days I can barely get out of bed.
    I need to be working, but the dr. this morning told me that she doesn't know how I could be working in my condition and have I considered applying for disability. I really don't want to do that. But this is the Good news thread and we definetly have some good news finally to report.
