Back to the Grind

My mother decided to visit Las Vegas on July 4th weekend in the middle of the WSOP. Talk about the worst possible time to come especially since it will get into the 120s over the next few days.

I spent three meals with her which was three meals too many. Nicky got to meet her for the first time, and I'm sure she'll have some interesting things to say about the encounter.

Over the last two weeks, I turned off my cellphone, IMs, and only read my main email once a day. I stopped reading everything else and for the first time in a very long time, I felt as though my life as uncluttered. Hard to explain aside from it felt good to not have to be attached to things. The only time I used the cell was to make calls. Perfect. And if people really needed something important, they knew where to find me on the floor of the Amazon Ballroom in the Rio Casino.

I had to leave my phone while my mother and brother were in town, but now that the WSOP main event has begun, I'm back to tuning out and focusing on work.

So... leave a message and I'll get back to you in two weeks. Maybe.
