Jeepers, Lisa, scary stuff!  Glad you made it through that little episode, and good luck with the exam.  I will have to make sure hubs is more diligent about his epi.  Since he underwent desensitization to bees he is a bit blase about the whole thing.  And then there was the raw fish episode in SF :huh: .

Glad you're okay! Sounds super scary.

 

When I say my life is boring I also always say I like it that way. I will keep my boring life tyvm. I don't need that kind of excitement.

Completely agree...I like boring...bring it on - soon - please ;)

 

interesting aside....got a call from the ER nurse tonight to see how I was doing -- thinking maybe the ER doc instigated -- kinda cool -- I did have a lot of special attention the other night....warms this old heart that got dismissed by so many docs over the years.

SKI!!

No scaring me while I'm traveling!!!  :o  Glad you're okay. xx

 

Our Easter dinner was great. Can't beat eating in a restaurant owned by a fellow celiac.  :D And her marble cheesecake--added another inch to my thighs. whoohoo!

 

Monday night in the hotel room in NC was sandwiches. No nearby restaurant offerings made me feel comfy at all.

 

But on Tuesday.PM...well, we had the best meal ever. We dined at a lovely place in Pennsylvania called "SYLVIA and MAGGIE's".

I was greeted at the door by a vivacious blonde who delivered loving licks and a wagging tail!!.

And the dog was very friendly, too!!! :lol:

 

Yes, I was fortunate to meet another c.com member (that makes 4) and she is a real doll. I felt as if we had known each other forever!! (of course, our 2 years of gabby emails probably helped with that)

 

It was YUM!!!!!

We had:

 

Appetizers and champagne

Standing rib roast and red wine and mushroom sauce

Baked spuds (and I had sour cream on mine--might as well Go for it, I thought)

Roasted asparagus

and Merlot

 

Dessert was homemade apple crisp and ice cream (but we gabbed so much we did not get to it--- so she sent some home with us, along with her banana nut muffins and homemade rolls with encore beef slices for our travel lunches) All fantastic!!!!

Wish we could have stayed longer. We had a blast!

The crisp is nearly gone. OINKsters are us.

 

Home now....sigh. It's too cold here dammit.....Can someone come unpack this stuff for me and put it all away??....and go through the junk  mail?? and make dinner tonight....and....waaaaa!! I wanna go back....

message received  ;)

 

and yes, no way that wetsuit would have come off, much less gone on....now, that would have been UGLY. :lol: and have caused quite a scene, possibly requiring a giant shoe horn....and some oil of some nature....

Let's see...no - "vacaation was great, but glad to be home"....that seals the deal pretty well -- the move is the right thing for you ;)

 

Still a bit tired here from my shenanigans on Easter -- getting what I need done, but it is warming up and I have the opposite problem -- can't tolerate the heat and pollen --- goodness - this has been a rough month 'round here -- me thinks we need a distraction ---

 

oh....just so i get all my complaints out -- my home mountain is closing on Sunday and I only got two ski days up there while dealing with Mom this winter -- this will be remedied next season -- going to be an adaptive ski coach at the USARC center up there :D -- guess I shouldn't have typed that out as last time I was feeling strong I was all set for my training week when I had the flare from hell.

 

Edited again to add - we finally had our Easter Dinner last night -- Honey Baked Ham was fantastic and it is the first time I haven't had a reaction to ham of late -- just glazed it about 20 times with a mixture of honey, butter and touch of ground cloves -- have to say the ground clove tasted much better and was easier than doing that stick the whole clove in the criss-cross dealio.  My dog ate the easter cake was making during the whole emergency system trial on Sunday so we had quadruple choc brownies and vanilla ice cream -- didn't hear any complaints about the change up :)

 

Tonight - simple chicken breasts with asparagus and butternut squash fries.

Better late than never with Easter dinner. Sounds yummy!

 

We're having a late lunch for dinner since my husband has a weird work schedule today. He is leaving around 2:30 and working an evening. My daughter's First Robotics competition is this weekend too, started yesterday. So as much as possible I am glued to a live stream to watch her matches.

 

So food today, frozen burgers thrown on the indoor grill because I can cook them between her close together matches this afternoon without missing anything while still feeding my husband before work. Whatever he eats or doesn't eat with it, meh, not my problem today. I've got a kid playing with robots to watch.

My baby is on team 3942, the Northark Pioneers. If you see them and it doesn't seem stalkerish... tell them that Heidi says hi. That is what she calls me anywho. She knows I'm watching.

My oldest daughter's plan is to become a chemical engineer, save the world, get rich. I like her plan. I thought I was going to bring up this live stream and only watch my daughter's matches and that it would be dreadfully boring. I'm surprised by how much fun this whole robot thing actually is to watch. Not that I frankly care about any other robots but hers. :ph34r:

 

What is it with men and golf? The second that the snow is gone and there is anything resembling green out there, they're all out chasing their balls. It wouldn't matter if they practically needed to be bundled in winter coats, as long as there isn't snow on the grass.

 

Sounds like Florida suited you better. Maybe you need to make moving plans. I'll bet golfing is a year round sport down there anyway. :P

 

I managed a pot of mac & cheese with the burgers and now have a whole evening to myself. This feels really weird.

I guess my husband has decided he wants something resembling a "real" dinner tonight since getting home. I'll crack open a holiday jar of George, roast some taters and veggies and keep it easy. I have an early morning tomorrow. Veggies at 6 and first match at 8ish. I have to admit, I'm kinda jealous that you're there.
