So Juan and I went out for dinner tonight. Went to Zack's up in Plymouth that used to be called Silverman's long ago. We usually go there for breakfast and I have never looked at the whole menu. Was surprised when I saw they had a list of "Senior Specials". Included on the list was Liver & Onions...ummmm. Don't make it much anymore as Juan isn't suppose to eat liver because of gout. But we both ordered it. You get soup or salad, bread & butter, choice of potato, vegetable medley, choice of beverage and either Rice Pudding or ice cream for dessert. All for 6.79 per person. Pretty good! And the meal was also good.
Juan had a follow-up doctor's appointment this morning and is doing fine. I had a foot doctor's appointment this afternoon. I have a condition with my left foot called Morton's Neuroma. It's a pinched nerve near my toes and I have had it for years. Anyway, went to see him a couple of weeks ago and he gave me a cortisone shot. Didn't help and I told him, so he said sometimes it takes two shots and he gave me another one today. ahhhhhhh Go back in two more weeks. Must say that so far it hasn't bothered me. Not like last time with that shot....my foot started hurting right away.
Got a new pair of sandals today that came UPS. Ordered them from Zappo's. Because of my feet conditions I have to get a wide size and order shoes online. I like these shoes. They are by Soft Walk and are very comfortable. So am pleased with these shoes. Pictured them above.
GiGi is obsessed with that frog! The frog didn't come today but she keeps looking all over for it.
And the Red Wings won! How great is that?

So I'm in the house and hear GiGi barking on the front porch. Seems a friend has come to see her but, being GiGi, she is not that overjoyed. Just, "you are on my property and if it wasn't for this window in front of me I would get you" barking. Just a little froggy...sitting and watching GiGi knowing that it can't be hurt.
Aunt Bea stopped by after her dentist appointment this morning. She is staying at Sandy's house watching both Tinkerbell and Rocky until Sandy gets back from Pennsylvania helping Courtney move. And then John stopped by to pick up a coupon to get his hair cut. Must be hair day today as Juan went this morning, John this afternoon and I go at 5:30 today. I look like a bushman...need this haircut.

Well hello again! Haven't written anything in over three weeks. Was an odd few weeks for me. Was having anxiety attacks and couldn't understand why! This went on for over two weeks and finally realized it was some new medication I was taking. Boy..now I make sure I read all the symptoms that can come with a medication. Don't want that feeling again. Kept doing Lamaze breathing but it wasn't doing any good. Know there was reason to have anxiety but didn't think it should bother me sooo much. John and Brandy both are now laid off from their jobs at GM. Both are supposed to go back September 1st but since Brandy has the lowest seniority at the plant, she may not be going back. But, that's something we will have to wait and see.
Did the above scrapbook page of Alex and the Jaycees she belongs to in Lansing. This was Lansing's 150th anniversary so they made a float and were in the parade. She was here Saturday and Sunday for a BBQ that Juan made and she helped quite a bit with straightening up the garage for the up-coming garage sale which starts June 4th. Always is soooo much stuff.
And Brandy came over yesterday and dropped off her wedding dress for us to hold. Very pretty dress!
So, here I am again and will try to do a better job of blogging.

Well, it was announced today that the Plymouth/Canton schools will be closed Monday and Tuesday because of a suspected case of the flu. Said it was a 16 year old student. So...it probably has come to our town. Just hope everyone is fine and it sweeps through quickly without too many getting ill.

Went to the bank and to Target this morning and at Target picked up three cushions for the front porch chairs. Really was looking for a more solid color but they didn't have any colors I wanted so ended up getting the ones pictured. They don't look too bad in person as the flowers match the color of the rug. Was only going to get one cushion but they had them on sale so got three. The one cushion in the chair I usually sit in was really getting worn and the other two we will just save if John needs replacement cushions for his two chairs which match the two we have on the porch. I put Juan's dark green cushion back over the new cushion as he likes more fluff. More and more it's beginning to look like Martha Stewart. Ü
When I got home from shopping found that Juan had cut out the bottom part of a plant holder he found. Took the chair off the peony bush and replaced it with the plant holder. Think it looks a little better than the chair. The chair would have been good if the plant were up against a wall or fence but, just to have a chair sitting there didn't look right to me.
Nothing really planned for this week-end. Tuesday, Cinco de Mayo, we are going to Mexican town to pick up some stuff and will stop by Uncle Stanley's afterward's to drop off some cat food our neighbor gave us. We don't have a cat anymore but Juan takes it to behind the mall he works at for all the critters. Uncle Stanley and Aunt Lois now have a cat...Patches.
