12-2-09 Wednesday (Child Friends)

I spent the day with my Mom.  We went to Friday’s for lunch.  I haven’t pigged out since Thanksgiving.  Not like it was that long ago.  I had the 96,201 calorie Cheesy Bacon Cheeseburger.  Damn, it was so good.  I cleaned my plate.  I probably would have licked it if I thought no one was looking.  Poor Jim.  He took a salad to work today.  Needless to say, he was a wee bit jealous.  What exactly is a wee?  I dunno.

After lunch, we went on a merchandise returning crusade.  My mom seems to buy a lot of stuff and then decides against it. 

Jim and I skipped the gym tonight.   Hey, we’ve done pretty well going every day thus far.

Tomorrow afternoon I’m going to Pompano Beach to visit some childhood friends!  I’m excited.  I haven’t seen them in several years.  They all live in NY and are vacationing at Jodi’s vacation condo.  Jodi, Michelle, and Carolyn … here I come!

I might be offline for a few days.  I’ll be back on Saturday.  Jim will have the RV to himself.  Oh plus Dasher and Clea and Jag.  Oh well.  Almost to himself.

Here’s a couple of photos of my mom and I out in front of a tree at the Bell Tower Mall.

  1. Darling, I am still waiting for you to inform us exactly what Jim is doing. Oh! Mom is looking so good I hope she is doing well.

  2. Thanks so much for the link to It's all free Online.

  3. Your mom is so adorable. I want to say something insulting about you, but I just can't. Not with mom and Christmas trees and palm trees and sunshine and stuff. And by the way... there's nothing better on earth than a good fattening cheeseburger. I don't eat much red meat anymore, but I dream about it! Glad you enjoyed your Friday's burger. Joanie will be proud.

  4. Charleen, he's playing assistant for the time being. In the future he may do closing but for now it's paperwork. He spends a lot of time on the phone with short sale negotiators. I guess I should put this in an entry? Thanks for reminding me.

  5. Very excited to check out the free site. Sah-weet!

    I haven't been to a Friday's in such a long time. Joanie works there, you and Jim eat there regularly, and I have a friend who serves at a location not too far from my house. I have many reasons to go... but it just isn't on our radar.

    I would love a reunion with childhood friends- it's neat that you've kept in touch!

  6. I've never had the Cheesy Bacon Cheeseburger. I'm partial to the Jack Daniel's Burger myself.

    Liz, the kids menu is cheap! The margaritas are yummy and the Endless Lunch is a super terrific deal(even though we servers hate it because it's such a good deal)

    Alix, yup! I love it when Garret says he went to Fridays. Just wish it was MY Fridays!

  7. Thanks so much for linking to my site and sharing it with your readers !


  8. Just looking for different blogs to read and found yours. Enjoyed reading about your travels through Washington last year. I live in Spokane and sorry your experience wasn't that pleasant. That is a lot of screws! And you picked about the worst time to pass through here, Seattle, and Portland last year. We had the worst winter with a total of 95 inches of snow in the end. I'll drop by again sometime.
