Today is hard for me, because 3 years ago on August 28th 2006 we sold our house. I really miss it still, and these past 3 years have been like a (bad) roller coaster ride for me. It is really hard not having a home anymore. I feel like my Mom and I are always on the move, and I just wish that I could go home... only, there is no home to go back to. :( In fact, when our lease is up, we'll be moving again in late January... we don't even no where to yet either! Maybe we'll stay in NYC, maybe we'll move back out to Long Island... It's hard never knowing where you are going to live next. So if you do have a home, never take it for granted! Remember that!!
Anyways, on to happier things... I took some cute pictures of Peanut in Mom's room last night...
We spent the day cleaning and then went to the Olive Garden for dinner. We have a kick-ass Olive Garden near us too. The food may not be the healthiest in the world, but it is SO freaking good. Even when I had anorexia I was able to eat a staggering amount of food there.
I started off with my favorite... minestrone soup. I also had a bit of a breadstick with it (not pictured).
For my entree I had their amazing five cheese ziti al forno. I was actually able to nearly finish it this time! I was surprised, because I never usually can.
And for dessert I felt like trying something different. Their "seasonal special" was pumpkin cheesecake, so that's what I got (we got our desserts to go). This was REALLY good, and I'm usually not a fan of pumpkin desserts. In fact, I've never even had pumpkin pie! So this was definitely a big leap for me. I'm glad I tried it though!
And here's a pic I took of Peanut tonight... he's holding his "companion" which is what I call his raccoon toy. It was the toy that we brought for him in his carrier the night we picked him up. He's slept with him ever since. :)
Have a good weekend everyone!
