Although we didn't hunt easter eggs, the easter dinner was a huge success. Seems like the entire family finally agreed on the main course: BRISKET!! Add Corn bread, mac and cheese, broccoli rice casserole, potato salad, deviled eggs and baked beans . . . we were STUFFED! The biggest hits with the kids (Chili and Atilla) were the peanut butter cookies that Robert made!!
Living with 2 men, and a male dog . . . being the only female . . .it's TOUGH keeping this house clean. I really think men are missing something in their brain, where they don't SEE the mess, the filth??! So, I bought some new dish towels. As I write this, one already has car grease on it from when they had to work on Ian's car yesterday . . . that's what OLD towels are for, not my pretty NEW ones!!! siggghhhhhhh, MEN!
I'm struggling with keeping to the picture a day commitment. On Thursday, I turned my computer on, and then 2 minutes later turned it off. I go thru phases . . . I had the bigfishgames.com phase, the jewelry making phase, the scrapbooking phase, and I kinda not feeling the picture a day phase anymore. I'm really concentrating on the loosing weight and working out phase right now.

Apparently, I didn't leave my 12 hour visit with Robert to the ER empty handed . . . they sent me home with STREP THROAT! I woke up this morning, and it felt like I had a rubber ball stuck in my throat. I took a look, and my tonsils were HUGE and had white spots all over them! I went to work anyway, since I missed yesterday. My boss talked me into going to the doctor, so I made the last appointment of the day he had. He confirmed my diagnosis, gave me a shot, more antibiotics, diflucan (ladies, don't ya just LOVE what antibiotics do to us?!), and liquid pain meds to soothe my throat. . . . .oh yeah, also got my monthly bead kit in the mail today, but after a swig of the pain meds, I think I'd rather take a nap than make jewelry!

. . . and THIS is the reason I didn't post anything yesterday! Robert called me at 5pm yesterday, and said he was at the ER. He was having chest pains, and his blood pressure was sky high! I left work immediatly, and got to the ER at 6. We didn't make it out of the waiting room until 10pm, and didn't leave the hospital until 4am!! They ran a ton of tests, and he didn't have a heart attack (thank GOD!). They think it might have been a reaction to a supplement he took, added to the stress of finding out his company is going to a mandatory 4 day work week. Great Monday, huh??
Apparently, I have a couple of days to catch up on around here. I'll explain why as I catch up. This is a picture my mom sent me of her (on the right) and a great friend that came to visit her (on the left). They've been friends over 40 years. So, why didn't I take any pictures on Saturday? Well, I had the best of intentions. We had a friend of Robert's over to hang out and play cards, and time and tequilla got away from me . . . the rest is history! LOL
