My Valentine's Date with my hubby was AWESOME! He took me to a nice restaurant. They had a lady playing the harp, so it was a classy place. My food was a little on the overcooked side, so I can't really rave about how wonderful dinner was, but it wasn't bad. The steak sauce that came with my steak was really yummy though.
After dinner we went to a movie. We hit the late show and the earliest late show we could get into was "Wolfman". Not what you'd think your typical Valentine Romantic Date movie would be, but I like to see movies worth seeing on the big screen. It was actually very good. And scary too. So I guess it wasn't such a bad date movie choice as I held my hubby's hand so the Wolfman wouldn't jump off the screen & get me.
On Valentine's Day, I got a sweet card & a box of chocolates from my hubby. Then he told me & the kids to get ready to go out for brunch. Yay! We went to Bon Fire's in Eagan. Brunch was great. Sam had chicken strips and kettle chips. He LIKED it! It is so hard to find that kid something to eat at restaurants as he's such a problem feeder. 9 months of feeding therapy 5 years ago and he still has a pretty limited diet. At least it's a variety of limited foods, but still limited none the less. I suppose there is still hope for him, after all I just discovered in Sept that I like shrimp. Who know. After all these years of clear disgust of shrimp, I actually really like it.
About an hour after we got home from brunch I had a horrible stomach ache. I ran to the bathroom & spent pretty much the rest of the day in there. No fun. The next 3 days were followed by horrid stomach cramps. They got better each day, and I was no longer making emergency trips to the bathroom, so I didn't make a trip to the doctor for him to tell me "hmmmm…probably some kind of virus or maybe you had food poisoning" .
So after 4 days of Ritz crackers, rice, and 7 Up…I was back to my usual self!
