Here's a quick little recap of my weekend...
First off Friday afternoon, a former student of mine (when I used to teach Special Ed) took me out to lunch. He had found me on Facebook. The last time I saw him he was 10...now he's 30! It was so strange to see him - that was a life time ago. He wanted to thank me for all I did for him and picked up the tab. I was moved.
Friday night we had Upper Crust delivered - love that place! Large garden veggie with Italian sausage, plus tip...$28. Not cheap.
Saturday afternoon while doing other errands, I lost my frequent user-card for the dry cleaners. Pissed! It must have fallen out of my back pocket. 20 stamps and you get $10 off. I think I had about 5 on it.
We bought a new kitchen set. It will be delivered at the end of the month. This will replace the bistro set I've had since 2000 whose wicker chairs are about to fall apart. The new one is much higher with bar-like stools.
Bandit saw the dog walker coming for the next door neighbor's dog - and not him. He was mad. When I opened the door he ran out and jumped inside her car; she often takes him for rides to the dog park. I had to coax him out with a cookie.
My nephew had a heart "episode" on Saturday. The doctor's aren't sure if it was a heart attack for they saw no blockages on the CAT scan but he had chest pains and numbness on his left side. Duh...sounds like a heart attack to me. He's fine now. Personally I think it's all the energy drinks and supplements he takes. He's lost 65 pounds but that's with 5 Monster drinks a day for the stamina to run on the treadmill.
Found a new delicious dive called Tracksides. It's definitely not a drive-by. I've seen it many times and was always hesitant to go in but finally after being persuaded by numerous compliments, we decided to try it. They serve authentic Portuguese food. I had a filet mignon on a bed of seafood rice. I thought the rice would have a little bit of fish in it. It was loaded with mussels, clams and lobster - on top a delicious filet topped off with two jumbo shrimp. Fantastic!
Yesterday my niece's dog got hit by a car yesterday. The dog is fine - a little mangled but nothing broken and no internal damage.
Last night we just chilled. Celebrated the Patriots beating Baltimore with a delicious dinner of salmon, quinoa and vegetables. Then off to bed early to start off the new week.
