Visiting the sick

Robert and I took off work yesterday to spend the day with his dad in the hospital. He just had back surgery on Monday. The hospital he's in is like 1 1/2 away so it was a nice drive for us to just talk. His dad is doing good, but damn can that man talk. I took my Harry Potter book to read and everytime it got really good he'd brake my train of thought with some stupid story. How many times does he think I want to hear about a fishing story from 15 years ago!!!!! Thank God my BFF Kelley was off work yesterday. She rescued me and we had a good time just out and about in town. We went to Cheeburger Cheeburger, and it was great! Bad, bad, bad Weight Watchers girl :) Their hamburgers, onion rings, and peppermint cookie shake was so yummy! I will have to go again with Robert soon. Then we did some shopping on the Boardwalk. I got a new shade of my favorite lip gloss, Buxom by Bare Minerals. It's called Brandy, and it's a sexy wine shade. Love it!!! I love Kelley's new car, a Mazda CX-7. It's tricked out with all the tech and luxury features too. I'll do a happy dance once I can get rid of my Grand Am. We spend about 5 hours out, but I came back to the hospital early since I knew Rob was hungry and waiting for me to bring some food.

We stayed with his dad until about 10 and then made the drive back home. The last 2 hours there were rough because his pain meds had worn off and he was hella bitchy! He griped out every nurse, tech, and assistant that came in there. By the time we got home it was after midnight and I was like a zombie. Rob let the dogs in and fed them and we crashed because 6:30 comes quickly. So today I had a nice big bottle of Fuze Slinderize Fruit Punch flavor and I'll be going to be nice and early when I get off work.
