Bad Timing But Finally Here

We have arrived....Finally. We were to leave last Monday for the workcamp gig in Santa Rosa Beach but due to family emergency with our daughter had to postpone until late Wednesday night. We drove thru the night and stopped at the Hollywood Casino and Campground in Bay St. Louis, Ms around 8am. How nice to have a campground let us check in then. We had a nice breakfast at the buffet, played a little, then off to rest for several hours. We put some chicken breasts on the grill and some rice in the microwave and had an easy dinner. Back to the casino for a few hours. I didnt do well on the slots so I joined Kevin at the blackjack table. We both ended up winners. He ended up winning $200 and I ended being up $50. It was a good night.
We had a good nights sleep and took off early for Fl. It was about a 4 hour drive to the campground. It felt good to be back here. We checked in and got our schedule for work. We were to run the shuttle Fri, Sat and Sun but because we were late arriving they found someone to cover for us and let us settle in for the weekend. How nice. Our next work day is Wednesday and is with housekeeping. We don't have any idea what that will involve, this is something new added to the duties. They have paid housekeepers so I guess it is to help them out. In the meantime... I got a call that my daughters dr wants to meet with me if possible. So, I am flying to Texas tomorrow to meet with her. (luckily we fly for free) I have no idea how long I will stay, have to wait and see how things are. May not be back in time for housekeeping, so hubby will have to pull the weight.
The weather here is beautiful. We went to the beach this morning for a few hours. I find the ocean so relaxing. Just what I need right now.....
