Oh goodness I can’t even begin to tell you how crazy last week was. I’m pretty sure there wasn’t a day that I was on the go… Maybe Monday. I can’t remember doing much on Monday. But Tuesday and Thursday I went to help with Try It SCUBA diving sessions during the day, Wednesday was 5 Mile Children’s Camp Try it SCUBA, Friday I was in the hayfield helping load 189 bales (why not 190 I’ll never know), and over the weekend I was at my parents house working on finishing out their basement.

If that’s not enough to make your head spin, I’m not sure what is! Oh, and then my poor momma, she broke her arm on Friday and doesn’t have a drs appointment until this week so she’s miserable! I’m talking miserable. I feel so bad for her.

So that was my life, how are you?

Oh, you’re wondering why the picture of Olive Garden? Well, Tuesday night after the Try It SCUBA for a local youth program, then I helped with pool classes for some open water certifications. Then when that was all said and done, Deb told us we were going to dinner. We were all spent. It was a long day :). And our restaurant of choice? If you can’t guess…. well, I’ll help I guess… It was Olive Garden :).

So they have this new item on the menu, not sure if it’s temporary or a long term thing, but it was create your own Italian Sampler. I’ll tell you the best thing on the plate was the Tortellini. So anyway the Create your Own Tour of Italy, choose a specialty: I choose Eggplant Parmesan (I really wanted to try it!), next choose a premium pasta: Tortellini al Forno, finally choose a signature pasta: Fettuccine Alfredo. Like I said, the Tortellini al Forno was the absolute best. It was Tortellini pasta in a cream sauce with bacon. Who doesn’t like bacon?

With all the bad luck I have with Olive Gardens around the country, I’m happy that my local one takes care of me! Now let’s knock on wood and make sure I didn’t just jinx my service locally!
