Birthday Dinner

T took me out for a birthday dinner. He told me I could pick anywhere I wanted. I don't really have a favorite place (which really drives him crazy), so I pondered and pondered. Even looked in the yellow pages. I made reservations at Giovanni's. T had called me 3 days in a row asking if I'd "made a decision" yet as to where we were eating. LOL, I think it was driving him crazy not knowing. I didn't tell him where we were going until we got there.

I was a bit nervous as there was a 40 minute drive to and from the restaurant. I was concerned there might be that uncomfortable silence during the drive, but there wasn't. Conversation was light and flowed well.

Giovanni's was a VERY NICE place and the food was delicious. T had sea bass and I had orange roughy.

On the way back to town, he stopped at a car dealership to check out the pickup trucks (LOL, typical guy). He even looked up the phone number of the dealership when we got back to my house. He's going to call on Monday for pricing on that truck!

When I got home, I realized I'd forgotten my cell phone and had 3 calls and 1 text from my sister while I was gone. Apparently, my Dad was having shortness of breath and drove himself to the ER 1 1/2 hours from his house. By the time I got home and found out about it, he was being released. He had water in his lungs again and they put him on diruretic pills.

Aside from my Dad going to the ER, I had a really good evening! :)

Glad you had a good evening. Sorry to hear about your Dad but even that could have been worse.
