  1. Haven’t had lobster for years, decades actually Think I’ll hint to my boys (all grown up now so they don’t need baby sitting and in fact can take their old mum out for a meal. Hanging out for next mother’s day.


  2. Yeah, that Red Lobster comment got my taste buds all perked up. We have a $25 gift certificate to Red Lobster, and I think we need to use it – soon!

    Did you take the flight? I hadn’t been on an airplane for nearly twenty years when I had to run the granddaughter back to Texas. I was pretty nervous at first, but we did just fine, and I actually enjoyed the day. I forgot how much I like airports and flying.


  3. Go eat some Red Lobster! Yum. No, we didn’t. It was for my daughter’s army reserve Yellow Ribbon conference and since she didn’t have to deploy we didn’t have to go to it. Which was a really great thing, because she doesn’t have to deploy. 🙂 Yay. I am very relieved by that. It was going to be Afghanistan. She just came back from a deployment the previous summer, so I wasn’t ready for her to leave again. She was half and half. She didn’t mind going because it is what she is committed to do, but she had just come back from one. No plane ride here. Hopefully, sometime in the future. I have flown twice. Once to Chicago for college art trip, was fabulous. The first time was to Hawaii! What a flight, with my daughter who was in 6th grade and my son was 3rd grade. I was lucky my daughter had flown several times with her grandma, so she knew what to do. lol…:) Hubby was deployed to Hawaii at that time, so we were able to go visit him for 10 days. Loved it. He had barracks that was like a small hotel room and we were able to stay with him. Our other two boys were way little and they stayed with a good friend and co-worker at the time.
