Last night’s dinner…all homemade by Chaz: Beef rib and shrimp pho (Vietnamese noodle soup) and basil rolls (filled with basil, rice noodles, and shrimp). In the lower corner we tried to make our own peanut dip but really didn’t have anything around, so we used PB, soy sauce sesame oil and a dab of bbq sauce. Don’t do that though, you’re sposed to use hoisin and some other junk. It was all goooood!
It makes me giggle and somewhat relieved to see Facebook is down. I can definitely get more done, not that I am on it much, I hop on 5 minutes at a time to see what others have said to me, keep up with news (I don’t have any broadcasting on my TV) and to keep in touch with my family. But I think it could teach many a lesson.
Anyway, so having been busy the past 2 days I had to share the good stuff that happened. Although it started out somewhat crappy. Heading to Atlanta Thursday for an Emory appointment, the card machines wouldn’t work outside at the gas station and we had to wait on that to work out. I was running late for the appointment and then we were stuck behind a truck for a bit down the mountain, only one lane we could be in, til he finally slowed enough for us to go around. Getting there, and trying to run out the car, I drop my phone and of course it breaks all apart. I came in super stressed but finished up my testing quickly so it didn’t bother anyone. We also got a lot of much needed errands finished (mailing my mother’s package to Germany after about a month, some great H-Mart [Asian superstore] shopping, Target gift shopping). On our way back home, we unexpectedly caught the Geminid meteor shower. We were escorted the entire 2 1/2 hour ride back by the beautiful beams of light, until we stopped at an overlook and had to cut our watching off at “5 meteors each” so we could get home to bed. We arrived at 2 AM, I didn’t pass out til 3 and had to be up for work by 8, but it was all worth it! Now, back to housecleaning…
