So – it’s Thursday and I feel that we’re in a pretty good routine now. We have located an Italian restaurant nearby that doesn’t mind bringing plain (and I mean plain) pasta for Henry (as well as 3 Cokes/meal….) We know where the McDonald’s is (where blessedly there is a fabulous bakery/sandwich place that uses authentic sourdough bread – for me, of course!!) – there is a Fivebucks in the lobby for me… a little market across the street for snackies and bananas (our reliable fallback) – and a very interesting trip to the CVS the other day!!!! Let me explain…..
We were on our way back from another outing, when I ducked into the pharm for some supplies – seeing the grocery aisle, I quickly and astutely thought, “Staples for Henry…” We grab a basket, fill it with cereal, bananas, Oreos, granola bars (for me), and pop. Whilst looking for eyedrops, Henry comes across the prophylactic aisle. Now, as much as I like to be prepared for anything….
I really don’t see the need for this trip…. And he was drawn to the Optic Blue – do they glow in the dark or what? Upon reflection, this could come in handy…. but not today. When he points out that he’s leaving for college in the fall and will need them (maybe), I tell him I’ll load him up on whatever colour he wants!!!
So – back to the food….
Today we stood in line for this place – he was dubious, but totally worth it! Next post will be Survival Guide for Eating in a Foreign City While on Vacation with Henry…. (maybe I’ll work on that title….)
