Happy Saint Patricks Day! Fill #4

Hey Ya'll,

Well we made it up to Reno easily.  It was a perfect day, sunny and about 70 degrees outside.  However, through our own stupidity, we almost missed my Appointment!  Walt thought it was scheduled for 3:30, when it was actually scheduled for 2:15!!  And I don't know where me head was!  We didn't even leave the Sacramento area until 1 pm!!  Even driving like a maniac (which Walt would have loved the excuse to be able to do), we couldn't have made it in time!! 

Luckily, we were still in an area where we had phone coverage (once we start driving through the Sierra's, we can easily lose reception).  So I immediately called the scheduler, and begged her for a later appointment!!  Luckily, she was able to work us in at 3 pm.  We actually made it there by 2:40, after driving 75-80 mph all the way (and that is with me reminding Walt to slow down)!  We were expecting to have to wait for at least an hour, but we walked in and there was no one in the waiting room, AT ALL!! 

I knew that I had gained weight, and found that I gained 1.8 lbs in the last 4 wks (I was so totally expecting to be yelled at, but she was really cool about it and said, that it appears that I need a Fill), so she gave me another .6 cc's Fill.  This brings me up to 5.6 cc's.  Here's hoping that it does me some good.  I was actually able to eat fairly normal for dinner tonight.  I know, I know, slap me on the wrist, we are NOT supposed to be eating anything at all on the day of the Fill.  But I always have, and so far, I have never had any problems.  I mostly ate soft mushy foods though.

So here we are in our Hotel in Reno, and we walked down into the Casino, Restaurant area to eat dinner.  We were surprised at how many people were really into the Saint Patrick's Day spirit!!  Most were just dressed in green or wore green beads or a green hat of some sort.  But there were a few that REALLY stood out!!  They dressed up in costumes, etc.  I just wish that I had thought to bring my camera!  While we were eating, we saw a Bagpipe Corp that the Hotel/Casino had hired, walking through playing.  Again, sorry that I didn't have my camera with me. :(

Well, I guess I should go, I am on Walt's laptop computer and HE actually expects to use it too!!!  How dare he!  Well, tomorrow we will be spending the afternoon with Walt's Mom, one of his Sister's and her Daughter.  Well, gotta go.  Till next time.

Aloha My Friends :)

Hope this fill is the one. Your paintings are fantastic so keep it up. You need that camera to capture some great pics to paint, so make sure it goes in your purse next time.

Happy Friday (a day early!)
