Rest Day, In Theory

I was able to sleep in a little this morning because we didn't have to be anywhere at a specific time. At Lisa's suggestion, we drove over to John Ascuaga's Nugget for breakfast because she likes their seafood omelet. It was pretty good. Then we drove down to the self-storage place near the Peppermill and put the Tsuki Systems gear into their smallest size of storage closet after renting the space for a couple of months. (We figure that after Renovation, we'll move it to storage in Fernley if we haven't found a place there yet.)

We went back to the hotel and rested for a while. It doesn't sound like we'd worked that hard, but we're still drained from Westercon, so it doesn't take much to wear us out. We took Lisa's vehicle with the rest of the Tsuki gear down to the locker and put it away as well, then went to the laundromat we'd noticed on Virginia Street about 2 km north of the Atlantis. While waiting for the clothes to wash, I wrote about the laundromat on the Renovation LJ.

By the time we got back to the hotel it was too late for our original dinner plan, which was to go back to the Nugget for shrimp pan roast. Instead, we walked next door to the Silver Legacy and had the dinner buffet. We got there at 9 PM and they do last call at 9:30, which led to us taking far too much food as we scrambled before they closed. We ate way too much, and thus felt obliged to go for a walk up and down the casino strip, where we even had to dodge a few raindrops. It has been threatening thunderstorms all day. We didn't mind. The clouds kept the heat down a bit.

For the theoretically low-impact day of this trip, I felt pretty tired, and it's still after midnight before I'll be able to get to bed.
