Yesterday my whole morning and afternoon was off. I couldn’t stop thinking about my doctors appointment and when it came time to finally leave for it I almost passed out. When I got to the doctors office it wasn’t any better. I walked in and felt like the youngest person there by about 40 years. The whole time I was thinking “see this has to be wrong everyone is so much older than you.” Then I saw a young athletic girl in the waiting area, “oh $hit” is the only thing that crossed my mind. Then I was paranoid they were going to tell me I needed to loose weight to fix it, yah like I’m not trying to do that already!
There was good news first, I have amazing blood pressure and I’m 5’4″ not 5’3″ like I believed I was. Apparently if you get over the half inch mark they round up! Then more good news came when I found out I didn’t have RA or Lime disease. Eventually he said he thinks it is just a trauma from running too much that is just inflamed. I have a prescription for Naproxen for two weeks and he thinks it will be gone by then. I couldn’t be more relieved. I really could have hugged the doctor, but since he had just seen me in my hospital gown I thought that might be a little over the line.
I then headed to CVS to pick up the prescription as well as a few other goodies, I really shouldn’t be allowed in that store! Then to the bank to get quarters for laundry and home quickly to change for my girls night out.
|Should last a few months!|
On my drive there the GPS add popped up for Taco Bell, I adore Taco Bell more than the next person but 40 minutes out of my way is a little excessive to stop for a taco.
We decided to go to The Butcher Shop in the South End for dinner and it was really amazing. I got there before my two other girl friends so I snapped some pictures of the menus and meat locker while talking to waiter for awhile about the restaurant. Apparently someone hand writes the specials menu once a week, and every ingredient they use they track exactly where it comes from. He then suggested a glass of Jimenez-Landi Mentrida which is a Shiraz type wine for the central area of Spain. It was fantastic, and when the ladies arrived we ended up ordering a whole bottle.
We then asked him to pick some meats and cheese for our first course, I didn’t eat the meat but my friends raved about it. The cheese was phenomenal except for the last one I tried that tasted like pool water, I guess I can’t eat all cheese like I thought I could. The also had bread with vinegar butter and honey, I think I had about five pieces of it as bread and honey are some of my favorite combinations.
For the main course one of my girlfriends and I got Gouda Cappellacci that had cauliflower and shaved truffles It was so fantastic I ate every last morsel on the plate. I think cauliflower is probably my second or third favorite vegetable too, I really need to incorporate it more into my diet. My other girlfriend got a pasta bolognese which she said was fantastic as well.
|Huge truffle pieces!|
Dessert was the weak part of the dish, the menu said there was cheese cake with blood orange so we were thinking a slice of cheese cake with an orange sauce over the top. What actually came out though was something like a custard with a jello taste. The mousse was pretty good though so it made up for the disappointing cheesecake.
The end of the night got a little more exciting as one of my girlfriends threw her napkin over the candle by mistake… oops!
I can’t wait for next girls night!

Do you ever overplay things in your head?
I always do, from the doctors appointment to confrontations or even relationships. I always expect the worst to happen.
