Good days and...

It's not been a great day. They all can't be, right? It's not been the worst. Some conflicts at home. No pool time. Frustration at the pharmacy. Yada, yada. I took Emily to the doctor's for a follow-up. She has exercise-induced asthma that will easily be controlled with an inhaler before exercise. She didn't want the new prescription, believing doctors are too quick to prescribe medicine - that it's an easy way out. I can understand her feelings, but I'm glad she agreed anyway. I liked the doctor and he was thorough with his explanation of why she needed this particular medicine. I dropped her off and went to Sam's Club to fill it. I waited the 30 minutes they said it would take only to find out they had to order it. Thanks for calling me to the pharmacy to let me know. Not. I did a little shopping while I waited, and tried on new eyeglass frames. I like the ones I already have the best. That was good to know. I called all the local pharmacies to find out that everyone needed to order the inhaler. I wound up dropping the script at my local grocery store. Should have done that from the start. Then I wasn't in the mood to shop for an outfit for the reunion. So we got pizza. The garage door fixer is here, fixing what needs to be done. He's working in the garage with the door closed on a sweltering day. He said he likes to be hot, that he needs to lose weight. If only it would be so easy...we'd all just sweat it off. I decided to take some time and update my blogroll. I was just about done when I accidentally deleted the entire list. Poof! I'll deal with that some other time.

I just over-cooked my salmon on the George Foreman grill. I cooked it outside so as not to stink up the house. I roasted a Vidalia onion in one of those cookers that go in the microwave. The ones that look like an onion. And I cooked a small potato. A dinner for one because Emily's not hungry yet. The onion was the best part of my dinner. I found frozen cinnamon chip oatmeal cookies in the freezer while searching for something for dinner. Dessert will be a sure thing.

Maybe I'll go out on the porch and try that book again....

We had pizza too. Found a real good place here in Maine. We are heading for home tomorrow. Will stop in PA and visit Ken's sister.
Those trees were HUGE!!

I hope your evening is relaxing after a less than perfect day. Dinner sounded yummy, though, and you can't beat cookies for dessert. :)

Sorry that it's not such a good day. Were the cookies good? They sound yummy to me.

I am reading "White Oleander", I read it while riding the bike at the gym. I try for 10 miles in 30 min, sometimes it's hard to keep the book still! I have found a way that works for me, but it is still hard to read like that at times!!

I love cinnamon chip cookies. I make a batch each year to give to the neighbors at Christmas time! They are huge and chewy, one of my favorites.

Somedays we are forced to live in Hassle City, unfortunately. Cookies help make it OK.

Do you have Papa Murphy's there in Maryland? It's a take and bake pizza place around the country. I love their pizza. I either eat that, Di Giorgio's(or how ever you spell it...lol) or California Pizza Kitchen. Anything else is for the birds! lol I had Mediterranean crusted salmon with corn and rice last night. :D
