Time for lunch so we headed over to Sweet Tomatoes for lunch. Love that place and salad is good for Jim’s blood sugar levels. I splurged and had a chocolate muffin along with my salad. It was sooo good.
After lunch we stopped in to check on Aunt Happy. We had to schedule our visit between her exercise class in the morning and the horse races in the afternoon. (Wooden horses and rolling dice.) She is doing pretty good but is slowing down a little bit.
Because Jim’s surgery is on the day before Thanksgiving we told her that we would have to cancel taking her out for Thanksgiving dinner. Jim and I think she was relieved that we weren’t going out. I suggested we go the following week but she said no, maybe for Christmas.
We had a fun visit and then she had to get upstairs early so she could be sure to get the horse she wanted and a good seat to see the race.
Thought that was the end of our excitement for the day and headed home to take care of the girls. Skittlez is finally doing much better. Still not 100% but actually played with Scooter a little bit and wanted to chase her toy. We took her off her pain medication a couple of days ago and she’s not near as dopey.
Got a phone call. Answered the phone and this voice said, check your text messages and let’s get this back to normal. Hung up and checked my text messages – sure enough it was Jeri. We very seldom talk on the phone. She’s much faster at texting and for some reason I hadn’t heard her text come through.
They are back in Phoenix and we headed out to meet up with her and Terry for dinner at Texas Roadhouse. So good to see them again. We originally met them in Florida in 2009 and have been friends ever since.
Looking forward to more good times while you’re here guys.
