We’re back from our trip to Houston. Thanks for providing me with a weekend free of blogging. Aside from a few comments and emails, I stayed totally away from the computer for nearly 3 days! My political bomb post was set to appear magically on Saturday; so for once, I actually had my entire weekend free. Planning ahead – who would have thought?! Sadly, I had to spend some of this holiday weekend attending a funeral and in the ER getting ANOTHER catheter. Something is really wrong with my body – maybe it is just age? I hear it happens to the best of us. Pregnancy seems to be for people in their 20’s… and learning “What to Expect When I’m Expecting” all over again is freaking me out.
So we’re back at home – no more eating out for us this week. Doc says I can’t have any more caffeine. That means fast food is definitely out. How do you eat pizza or McDonald’s without Coke? Fries and water? Gross. I could kick myself for not bringing home the leftovers from Yai Yai Mary’s. Baklava, Chicken Souvlaki and heavenly Greek rice pilaf. How dumb was that?! Their pistachio ice cream is divine. And I know who makes it (but I’m not telling). They serve it in a sugar-sprinkled bowl made of baklava pastry crust, top it with with a handful of fresh chopped pistachios and drizzle it with gooey honey. Mmmmm.
Anyway, I hope you’ll join me as we get ourselves in gear for the second week of our school year! What a busy schedule we have ahead of us in the next 5-7 days! A hundred things to do and places to go tomorrow… (which is already today at 12:39 AM)… I had better get in bed!
