Tuesday Tales

So I had a pretty good bday. Hubby cleaned the house for me, let me scrapbook gave me a Remote Starter for my car that was a total surprise since my boots were my early bday present and Jake made me a birdhouse in woodshop! Then we went out to dinner 7 of us, my next door neighbor and my other old neighbor that was in town from FL. We haven't seen Steve in awhile so it was great to see him. We went to Carrabba's that was the only bad part of the day, I hated my Lobster Ravoli so much I ate bread and dessert for dinner! LOL! I also didn't like the mussels that someone highly recommended. Michael's angel hair pasta was undercooked (how do you do that?) and Jake hated his chicken parm. Now the 3 other adults that ordered all got steak and had no complaints, go for Italian and the Italian food stinks but go for steak and it's great? So not right! LOL! But if all I have to complain about is dinner then it's a pretty darn good day in my book! Cause heck, I didn't have to cook it either!

I did two whole pages while I scrapped on Saturday! I was only there for about 3 1/2 hours but I have to say that since I've started digi scrapping, paper scrapping has come much harder for me, 1 1/2 - 2 hours per page is such a long time for me! LOL! I was happy with the pages so that's all that matters!

Still no word on my job, one of the guys in my group is leaving but they are going to replace him since he's more senior so as far as I'm concerned I will still be at risk of being laid off by the end of this month or next month.

So not much else new here so I'll just say have a great day!

Well I'm glad your birthday was good for the most part. I've never been to that restaurant. I enjoy Johnny Carino's. Do you have those up there? YUM.

Bummer about your job still being in limbo. I hate that feeling of not knowing!!! I guess however it turns out, it will end up being positive and you can look back and say it was all good.

Sorry the job is still hanging in limbo. I hate that. I'm in the same boat... argh....

Glad you had a nice birthday! But I am so sorry about Carrabba's! We've never had a bad dinner there but now you've had several. Ugh!

Wish they would tell you something about your job!

Maybe that restaurant needs a visit from "Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares"...

A remote car starter? Is that so your car will be all heated up and ready to put into gear by the time you get to it?

(Sorry folks... naive Aussie...)

Pam said...

No Donna, I have never heard of Johnny Carinos.

Lynette, that is exactly what a remote car starter is, but it also works for cooling it off in the heat too! ;)

Sorry about your bad experience at the restaurant. I hope the restaurant compensated you somehow!

I used to have a remote car starter and I loved it!

Happy Belated Birthday Pam!!! All in all it sounds like your day was wonderful. Sorry about the dinner though.....Carraba's is one of my favorit bday spots too:)

dawn said...

I had heard good things about Carrabba's too! I guess if I ever go there, I will have to order the steak? LOL! I am am glad you had a great birthday other wise. Happy belated B-day!:-)

oh glad to hear that you had a good birthday

Jolene George said...

I'm so glad your day was nice. I don't like Carrabbas either. One bad meal can't ruin a nice day.
I hope you get the new job. Not knowing is so hard.
