I dragged my mother’s laptop out on the patio so I could enjoy the sunshine while I attempted to get her computer to work.
She doesn’t have wireless so I was chained to that one chair. She hasn’t updated her computer since 2001 so it was in need of several hours worth of work, but now she has iTunes and Twitter (if you say hello to her @joymeece, she’ll probably die of happiness).
Billy Jean the cat hung out with me for a while:
As did Barack:
He’s the man!
I snacked on crackers, cheese, and watermelon:
And some more Key Lime Pie (get this pie AWAY from me! So addicting!):
Around 6 PM, my aunt, uncle, mom, and I went out to dinner at the Sunspot:
Another awesome hippie/semi-vegetarian place (my mom and uncle are a flexitarians and my aunt is a vegetarian, in case you’re wondering).
I used the side door. 🙂
We started with chips and salsa:
And unfortunately, I picked a really disappointing entree: Baked Enchiladas.
Yea… that doesn’t look like an enchilada to me, either. It had corn tortillas, mushrooms, zuch and squash, goat cheese, and pasta sauce on a bread of black beans and rice. It was pretty overwhelming. I just picked on it (thankfully, I was loaded up on chips and pie!!).
I leave Tennessee tomorrow. So sad. 🙁 But at least I get to see the Husband and doggies for 1 day, and then I’m leaving for the HEALTHY LIVING SUMMIT! I cannot believe the Summit is here! 6 months of planning have culminated it this one weekend – ahhh!
**FYI because I had a few people ask me this: When I ran into the big scary dog earlier this morning, I backed away SLOWLY. Face the dog, but do not look directly at him. You want to appear as submissive and non-threatening as possible. If possible, pick up a large stick to defend yourself if necessary. Also, look for potential escape routes (a neighbor’s porch, on top of a car). Don’t turn your back and run from the dog; they will just chase you!
Key lime pie is the one food I literally have no control over myself with! Not to give you irresistible ideas, but when my mom made it for me when I was home I stirred a spoonful into 0% Fage for breakfast and it rocked my socks.
