Yesterday, August 4, was Andrew's and my 11th wedding anniversary. We're in the double-digits now, folks! :)

My parents came to visit for the weekend. The visit was actually planned before we found out Andrew was going to need to have surgery, but the timing worked out great. They were here to stay with Andrew and the boys while I worked yesterday, and then they were able to feed the boys dinner and get them put to bed while Andrew and I went out for the evening.

Our outing yesterday evening was looking a bit iffy, because I started to come down with a bit of a scratchy throat due to drainage on Friday, and it was not improving on Saturday. I was doing okay in the morning, but the throat kept bothering me more and more as the afternoon progressed while I was at work yesterday. Once I got home, I decided that we were going to go out even though I wasn't feeling great, because I was not so miserable as to be totally out of commission, and who knows when we'd next get another opportunity to go out together for fun and have it not get cancelled, since that's been the story of our life lately. *fingers crossed for Dragoncon at the end of the month!*

So we hit up Red Robin for dinner. Not quite our anniversary celebration restaurant of choice, but Andrew remembered them having a caesar chicken salad wrap on the menu that he liked and seemed likely to be reasonably low in fat. Well, it's been a long time since we last ate at a Red Robin -- the menu was different, the chicken caesar wrap was no longer on it, and they no longer use glass for their drinks -- my tea came in plastic. One of the things I really liked about Red Robin was that they have good tea, and it was served in glass. Oh well. Andrew tried a different chicken dish and said it was fine, and we treated ourselves to their ice cream pie at the end. Andrew was going to only eat a couple of bites, but ended up eating a fair bit more than that, and said he still felt fine afterward. So hopefully he'll have an easy transition back to more normal eating.

After dinner, we headed over to the home of our friends Tim & Jamie for Tim's birthday party. I had a lot of fun chatting with folks and playing Apples to Apples. Apparently I win that game a lot -- though I honestly have no recollection of this miraculous ability. But I really enjoy word play, and I did win last night. So *shrug*.

All in all, it was a fun night, and I'm glad we went out. Throat HURT when I got home, though, and I didn't sleep well last night because of it. But once I got up today and had some breakfast, it started to feel much better. Still scratchy, but not too bothersome, and I can still feel the drainage. I'm really not sure if this is a cold or just an allergy attack of some sort. I tried taking a Claritin this afternoon, but not sure it helped. I'm gonna try to get myself to bed around 10:30 tonight (so 20 mins from now) so that I can get a little extra sleep before I'm on my own with the kids all day tomorrow. And supposed to do grocery shopping -- we'll see if that gets done.

[ETA: And Ian has still not nursed. I'm declaring us done. He did ask once today, but I told him he hadn't nursed in almost 4 days, and he didn't need to start back up again. And he moved right along to something else and didn't even fuss at me about it.]

So far weaning has been going pretty well.
