John and I are heading up to S.F. tonight for my surgery. I've got my pre opp appointment Thursday morning, and the surgery is on Friday. I'm hoping we will get to go to Tommy's Joynt for lunch. As much as I loved the burrito shop that we went to last time, it's time to mix it up. Ok, not really, but we saw Tommy's Joynt on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives and it looks so good! I'm planning on getting the meatball sandwich on a fresh sourdough roll. Can you beat it?
One of my new guilty pleasures is Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. John and I are fully obsessed with this show. We also found out that the host Guy Fieri grew up in a small town near where we did and some how neither of us ever knew that.
We LOVE watching the chefs make the dishes on the show and have picked up a few good tips. I would REALLY like to plan a road trip and try all the different places he's gone. For some reason there is a ton near and in Salt Lake City. (I'm wondering if one of his crew members is from there). What was great about Tommy's is that most of the food is homemade and it has old school prices.
I'm definitely not looking forward to my surgery, but I can't wait to get it over. It seems like I've just been sitting around for the last month just waiting for it. Not the most uplifting. I also celebrated my birthday this week, and it was probably the most lack luster birthday to date. I didn't think having my surgery near my b-day would matter, but it does. I didn't want to do anything, or want any gifts...shocking I know. A few friends came over this past weekend for dinner which was fun, but it still didn't feel like a celebration to me, even with the awesome Madonna Inn cake Jen got for me. Even on the 2nd it felt like any other day. Well except for dinner. John took me out to one of our favorite Italian restaurants.
I really hope things will be back to normal after I've recovered. My Achilles tendinosis is still bothering me which I've found could take up to a year to heal. Isn't that great news? I keep trying to stay positive but it's definitely been harder than normal. Hence the lack of posts. It's no fun to post when you are down...AND I didn't want to post about this because I didn't want you to feel like you needed to leave words of encouragement, because I really do know things will be fine...and that they could be WAY worse. I just need to get through these weeks and hope my Achilles gets better so I can be more active. It's so hard to stay off of it.
I'm not sure when I will update again. I remember after my first surgery I didn't feel like blogging, so don't get your hopes up. But you never know I might surprise you!
