On Thursday I slept all day. Literally. I got up, had breakfast, laid down and slept from 10:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Wow! I don't know if I was that tired or still had the medicine in me. Maybe both. But so much for getting the car fixed. I did make fried rice for dinner because Joe and I were still in an Asian mood from having that wonderful sushi.
On Friday we got up early and took the car into the garage. We said we would wait while they looked at it. It turns out the dome lights not turning off was a switch that was easily fixed. In fact it was fixed in a few minutes. But... While they were looking at that they found that the burning we had been smelling on the way home from the airport was a leaking timing belt and one of the motor mounts was loose. So we left the car there, had our friend Carole pick us up, and headed on home.
It took them all day to fix it. Carole wasn't able to pick us up to take us back to get the car. We were going to take a couple of buses up there, but it was only 30*F. and we didn't want to stand on the corner waiting for the bus. So I called a couple of people. My friend, Paulette, was home and happy to help us out.
After we got the car and spent even more money (but it had to be done) we decided to go out to dinner. We ended up at one of our favorite places -- East Coast Wings and Grill.
|Joe was watching the lacrosse game on the big screen.|
|I knew I wanted to get wings and I liked the sound of the flavor of the month.|
|I chose the Polynesian sauce and it was so good! Tomato, soy and pineapple is a great combination even if it is a little sticky.|
|Yum! I really enjoyed it.|
|Joe got baby back ribs and boneless wings.|
|They make their own chips.|
|Joe enjoyed his dinner too.|
Saturday we took little Snowy to the vet. It turns out she was running a fever. She got an antibiotic, a B12 shot to stimulate her appetite, eye drops for her weeping eyes, medicine for her gums and we start her thyroid medicine today. She is feeling better already because she began eating again. She has lost 2 1/2 pounds so we want her to gain that back.
Yesterday was church. It was good to be back and see our friends. And then in the afternoon it was naptime. This trip has really taken a lot out of us. I lost both my VISA card and my new phone yesterday. I finally found my card in the bag from the vet with Snowy's medicine. But my phone is still missing. I think I might have left it over at church so I am taking a run over there today and look. I can't have lost two phones in one week.
So that brings us up to date. Today is leap day. I don't have anything special to do. I just really need to clean. I mean REALLY. So that's what's going to happen.
