I'm back from my ankle appointment from (He double toothpicks) the asctual appointment was ok, but the shuttle bus wasn't very organized.

He had me go later and I almost missed my appointment, he said that he cleared it though the hospital, but we found out when we got there, that he hadn't :smileymad:

I know that he's busy, but I'm busy trying to get through this as early as possible. :smileyfrustrated:

I did make it back in time to get my salad ingredients, but it was almost too late. So I'll be having my big salad tonight for supper and fresh strawberries for dessert. Tomorrow I'll get some shrimp, my friend Suzi made me hungry for shrimp when I talked to her yesterday! :smileytongue:

Sounds like another one of those busy days!
I had a good day. I worked out in the a.m., went to BJ's and Wegmans for my grocery shopping and filled up the house with lots of yummy food, including pineapple, strawberries, beautiful artichokes, pencil-thin asparagus, and lots of other yummy stuff. I had made a venison stew for DH and the kids, but DH decided to take me out instead. So I fed the kids and DH had a nice evening together. We spent a lot of time talking and laughing which was a good ending to my day.

How are you making your shrimp, Brenda? I always keep frozen shrimp in the freezer for a back-up meal or appetizer. My bff made a great recipe for Carribean Shrimp. It was marinated in lots of flavor and was delicious. I thought it tasted just like Chinese shrimp, lol. I can't wait to make it for an appetizer next time we entertain.

We went to our favorite place about a mile up the street. It is a comfortable bar/restaurant where you know everyone and the food is delicious. The prices are very good and you can't beat the location.

That is exactly what it is like, lol! We walk in and they place our drinks in front of us without even ordering, haha.
Yes, it is the small pub-like places that are always the best, aren't they? : )

At the Alley Pub, they never knew what I would order, unless I was drinking beer, DH always ordered the same thing.

Yes, they are.

Sometimes we dance, play darts or pool, or do karaoke, but mostly DH and I just sit and talk. It is like our little bit of therapy together. : )
