Longhorn Steakhouse

Last night hubby and I tried a new restaurant in our area called Longhorn Steakhouse.  Our neighbor raved about it and said the one on the east coast was fantastic.  Sadly, we were not impressed.  The temperature in the restaurant was so cold it was affecting the temperature of our food.  We had to ask multiple times to get it adjusted so we could eat comfortably.  The service was extremely slow and the place was not that busy.  One salad was so overdressed it was drippy and the other salad had virtually no dressing.  The chicken was overcooked and what they called a chicken breast was actually three chicken strips covered by a portabella mushroom.  Hubby's steak was cooked properly and he said it was good, but the rest of the meal was unimpressive.  Not a place I would go back to again.

I went to have my eye exam today and the doc said it was time for bifocals. At first, I was disappointed because bifocals are for old people and I am only in my mid forties. Then he showed me what I would see with them. Holy moly, I had no idea what I was missing!

I ordered them today, no transitions this time, and they should be here in 10 to 14 days. I am actually excited for them to come in so I can begin seeing clearly again.

Protecting the Torpedo

Hubby and I were out geocaching when we came upon this guy. He was taking his guard duty serious. There was a couple of us wanting to look at this monument, but he made sure we kept a respectable distance.

I have decided that when I get new glasses at the end if the month, I am giving up the transition lens. The last 2 pair have not been living up to the standards of the first pair.

I am so happy that the show Shameless is back. This is one of the shows that I look forward to every week.

Is there a show you look forward to every week?

Brussel Sprouts

Tonight we made brussel sprouts with dinner. We had a few left over, so we thought we would see if the dogs would eat them. They actually loved them! Who knew.

While hubby and I were out geocaching yesterday, we came across these guys.

Happy New Years

How did you spend your first day of 2012?  My first day of 2012 was a spill over from the last day of 2011.  About 10:30pm last night I stepped out of my neighbors house to go check on my dogs and when I opened her door, there was the cutest litte black daschund at her door step.  It was scared from all of the fireworks going on in the area.  We spent the next hour looking for its owner and trying to decide what to do.  We decided she would keep it over night and we would decide what to do today. We put a sign in her yard saying we found the dog and then ushered in the new year while working on a jigsaw puzzle.  By 2pm today, the owner still had not called, so we ended up taking the dog to a local animal shelter.  After that, hubby and I put out our first cache and decided to call it a day.
