I am going no matter what. I dont ask for a lot and he knows this is a big deal for me. He is even excited. He will probably want to go. BTW am I spelling probably right?

LOL, I think we can handle you! If you call ahead, and let the airport know that you need assistance, they will be sure to provide you with help. But I understand not wanting to fly alone. I just think it is bullshit if it ends up in Chicago, that he would not bring you. He is willing to go to Vegas for himself....whatever. You will sweet talk him.

No I think it is unsafe to fly alone. I get lost and forget things. But I dont look like I had brain surgery. It is just when I blurt the first thing that comes out of my mind that you can tell. But I can be funny as hell. Or insulting but never on purpose.......with out my meds anyway. oh do you feel sorry enough for me to go to vegas now. Just kidding. i will stop bugging you about vegas. :)

I knew that already Shannin. So, do your doctors think it is unsafe for you to fly alone?

AND, this would be about YOU....NOT what your husband wants. This is about you meeting people that you have gotten to know. This would be time away.

Um....why does he need to go????? This is a GIRLS weekend anyway. Tell him to go to Vegas on his own time with his buddies.

You know what. That DOESNT make sense. Maybe because there would be something for him to do. Like throw away money. Is Nubian around or did she go to Hawaii????

Hubby says no. but who knows. Also I just asked him about our cousins. They retired. No help there. So I got nothing. I am still hoping my step mom can help with the sponsors. She is amazing and really smart. I have another friend who is smart. So smart she is on the verger of insanity. They are a fine line. But I am asking for any .......smart people only, suggestions.

Also, I remember when my mom used to go to Vegas when we were kids, buffets were like 4.99. I was expecting all you could eat for cheap. Yah, right. They were 12-20 dollars each time you ate. you had to either get off the strip to go to a restaurant, or pay high. Also, being a vegetarian, I never was able to eat even 1/4 of the items. So I was paying a buttload for salad and pasta...and it wasn't great high class food. Typical buffet shit.

Truthfully, the prices for hotels were either too high, or nothing special in Vegas when I went. My husband has been back several times, and so have his cousins. Sometimes they get decent rates, but they all share a big ass room....so it really ends up being the same price as a regular hotel per night. I would rather not spend a bundle on flights and hotel rooms.

Would you bring your laptop so we could chat. ha ha I will ask my cousin Gary about the rooms and maybe group rate but with all the new upgrades you are probably right about them being expensive. Maybe I will just go and visit each one of you individually. Oh my hubby would love that. lol

And, since you have never BEEN to Chicago, all the more reason to go. It is just a different culture....great museum, the navy pier, great places to eat and drink, comedy clubs, the sights, shopping. I have only been once to both places, but I would enjoy going back to Chicago.

How you feel about Chicago is how I feel about vegas. No big whoop. And, if I do go to Vegas, or anywhere really, I am not being stuck in a hotel room all day. That is pointless. I want to go out, explore, have fun. I would be enjoying time away from my family, and I sure as hell am not gonna waste it in a hotel room. No offense, but why is Vegas so important to you if you plan on not leaving the room? And, the last time I went, the hotel rooms were not cheap.

Well I am glad your not giving up. I know two people in VEGAS. Is it the air flight because the rooms should be cheap because they make up for it in gambling. But yeah it would be hot if you went outside. I would probably never leave my room. Drinks on me. LOL I just really want this to happen. And there is no way we are going to be able to please every one. Not to be rude but what is so great about Chicago other than you would be there. I know nothing about that place. SHHHHHHHHH but i will go where ever.

That would be awesome if she had some advice on how to stir up sponsors though. It would not hurt to ask. It will be very difficult to get sponsors without the CoM name behind it. They really have no reason to sponsor us. We would have to begin an official group or something....with an official cause.

I don't want to lie to sponsors. If I ever get a phone conversation, I am going to let them know that with their help and using the CoM name officially, we will get more people interested.

We are not totally giving up Shannin. I put in ANOTHER phone call today. We are just making alternative plans just in case. Summer time is the most expensive, and hottest time for Vegas. I went in June once, and wholly FUCK! It was not fun walking around during the day. It was wicked hot. I am sticking to Chi town.

VEGAS AND WHAT ABOUT THE FOURTH OF JULY 2012. No school and most people have the day off already. My step mom is great with motivation and worked for the city. I am going to ask her for her input on how to inspire sponsors. I hope that is okay. I am not giving up. Remember Bill Gates started with an idea. I do think we need to get a lot of moms saying they are interested before we approach sponsors or it wont be worth it to them. Even if they dont really want to go I wish they would say they are interested to generate interest. Oh did I mention VEGAS. ha ha
