Thankful for Thursday!

WICKED!  A night to remember

We had a great evening!  In spite of my oral surgery at 10am, and the awful gastric upset from the Clindamycin, our dinner was fabulous.  We ate at a really upscale resturaunt called 309!
309 Peoria Heights

We shared a petite fillet, garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus and a bowl of french onion soup.  It was relaxing and they treated us like queens.

We loved this place
We did not have to much trouble deciding on the dinner, I told the waitress about my surgery and that we would be sharing and she was totally fine with it.   

I was very impressed with this resturaunt it is fairly new, and this was our first time going.  We will most certainly be going back.

Nichole's dress was so awesome!
We had NO alcohol!  Believe it!

We decided not to have any dessert we both were so full, and just wanted to be good!  The service was fabulous, and they did everything perfect.  Waited on us promptly, served the food quickly at the correct temperature, and it was a very nice change to the type of service locally I have become accustomed to.

We arrived at the play and some of the trailors were on the street outside.  They had 15 semi tractors with all the sets and props and wardrobe for this show.  It took 30 hours to set up the stage for this 16 day run here in Peoria.

We got our seats in the second balcony front row center.  Let me say I hate heights, and my fear is beyond normal.  It is pretty bad.  So this was truly hard for me to sit down, but I did it.  Within 20 minutes of the show starting my intestines began rumbling really really bad.  I was like this is NOT happening to me.  I was able to control it til the intermission, but it was the hardest thing to do.  I was uncomfortable and my tooth was achy.  

At intermission Nichole said to me, "mom, I am really bored, this show is slow, and I am not really enjoying it!"  I was shocked because I was feeling the same way.  Perhaps it was opening night, perhaps it was the actors, perhaps it was that I was not feeling well, I just knew that I did not want to sit for another 1.5 hours for the second act either.  We laughed about it, and said people would not believe that we were going to leave.  But we did, we walked out at intermission and we came home.

Alan was waiting for us, and we told him all about it, and he smiled.  He did not want to see it in the first place.  Now do not get me wrong, it was exciting and I am sure on Broadway it would be much different, but this show was not anything like when I saw Phantom, and I was disappointed.

I told you that I would be honest, and I am being.  I am home from work today, because my tooth and jaw are so sore.  I had a partial root canal yesterday morning, and have to go back on the 25th to finish it.  Then I have to wait a month to get the final cap put on the tooth.  I have a great deal of empathy now for anyone who has dealt with teeth pain.

Nichole and I loved getting dressed up and going to dinner and the show.  It was her present for graduation from College, and I am glad she had a good time.  I think she looked stunning.

I am not happy at all with how I look, in fact I deleted most of the pictures.  I know I have come a long way, but I still hate myself in pictures.  I just look so fat!

I hope to get back into the gym sometime today.  I am going to see how I feel later.  If not, I definitely will be there tomorrow.
