What been going on here at the home front.

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

On the night of the 27th June I did not sleep all night. I figured I would sleep good because I went to the gym that day. So on Friday the 28th I had an early appointment for a pro time (blood work) done when one is on blood thinners. I was exhausted and burst out crying at the clinic. Felt so stupid & embarrassed but so tired. I came home to try to sleep and rested in bed all day without falling asleep till about 10pm that night.
The 29th June was out 28th anniversary and after having a good nights sleep, I woke up close to 10am. We went to the movies (Man of Steel) which was very good and then to dinner, which was a big disappointment. We always seem to have bad luck on our Anniversary. It started at the movies when we ordered out drinks, 1 reg. cola and 1 diet which I wanted with just one scoop of ice. Nope the kid was too busy talking to another employee to notice he put 2 large scoops in both cups and then handed them to us, without marking which was the diet. I questioned him, and he said I think it's that one but it might be the other. I wanted to give them back for him to redo but my husband was sure he could tell which was which. After we left the counter he kept sipping one then the other. I still don't know if I drank 500+ cals of soda or got the diet.
Then we went to El Torito's for dinner. What a mistake that was, The chips and salsa were horrible, the drinks were watered down and didn't even taste like they had booze in them. After waiting close to 40 mins for be served (how long does it take to make a number 5) same at every restaurant here in CA. 2 chicken tacos, 1 cheese enchilada for the hubby, & I had a Chili relleno & 1 cheese enchilada. When we get served it is not our waiter but some guy from the kitchen, who I have no idea if he was a line cook or a dishwasher. Of course, my order is incorrect, and this guy hasn't a clue what my order was suppose to be. Jeff starts eating and get up to go to the front to talk to the manager. She of course she says their sorry and will take my order off of my bill, this takes less than 10 mins. Lo and behold out comes my order to the table while I am talking to her. The relleno is raw, under cooked, my cheese enchilada is awful. How is it the kitchen is able to get the correct order out in under 10 mins. but we couldn't get out meals for close to 40 mins. in the first place. Jeff thinks the waiter was trying to get us to order more drinks, we only had 1 each. Oh yes, our water came after Jeff was done with his meal and had gone outside to have his cigarettes (bad stuff but he can't stop). I wasn't about to drink any after we complained to management. Jeff contacted corporate ET by email in the morning, where once again we were told how sorry they were.
We also share our anniversary with our son Jory's girlfriend and he was in town for the weekend. Frank went to a party and BBQ at her parents home. She doesn't speak to us because of a fight she had with our daughter Samra. Jory would not still be with her, if not for the fact they purchased a home together in AZ, and he is sort of stuck for the time being.

July 1, went to the gym. The 2nd & 3rd were busy, 2nd Jeff and I drove around town to take care of a lot of chores, 3rd I took Frank shopping for new clothes for his 27th birthday and we roasted hot dogs for the 4th. So hot all week in the mid to upper 90's and I didn't have a lot of energy. On the 3rd our new drapes were in stalled in the living room. On the 5th we were being pretty lazy because of the heat. Went out to dinner and another movie on the evening of the 6th (Lone Ranger) which everyone seemed to like in the theater because most people clapped when it ended.
Also during that week my son and I were packing everything in our rooms to move them out to the living room. Sunday we put down protective paper and moved it all out of the bedrooms. Yesterday I went to the market and did some other errands with my husband. Today the guys came to remove the popcorn ceilings from the bedrooms and will be back tomorrow to finish. Then we will be painting the bedrooms and getting ready for the flooring to be put in. In Sept. we will be doing the same for the master bedroom and then finally the house will be finished for a while. Next summer we plan to redo the other bathroom and in a couple of years had a new master bedroom.
Went to the gym yesterday, still very warm here.

    Busy girl! We've had stuff like that happen at restaurants too...big disappointment. Sorry you had to go through that on your anniversary :(
Wow...you guys are doing a ton of renovating! Feels great when it's done but it's a lot to go through while you're doing it! Take good care of yourself...sounds like a lot to deal with right now. Hope you can post pictures again once all the work is done!

    Sorry about your bad luck with your meal :( They should have given you a chit for a free future meal (although I am not so sure I would ever eat there again after that!)
Wow! I thought your renos were finally complete and here you are getting disrupted out of the bedrooms! Don't know how you will get any sleep with that! I hope this latest round gets done more quickly!
Thanks for catching us up on your news!

    You sound like you have really been busy!! Not sure I could keep up with you (LOL) We don't go to the movies due to the sound! I get a headache right at the beginning. Roger is developing some hearing issues but that is a family gene he and his brothers inherited and at times I have to tell him to talk softer to people on the phone. So he can handle the movies, I can't!
Happy belated Anniversary to you!! Sorry about the food. That's terrible!! Better luck the next time out!!
