dinner from the sea

After a bit of a health complication required me to stay in the hospital for a few nights, my mom and sister flew up to New Hampshire for several days to provide some love and support (and lots of hugs and kisses to Aidan!).

It's been so nice having them here, and letting them go back to Texas is something I'm not at all looking forward to. But in the mean time, we've been trying to squeeze in a little bit of fun while they're here.

Part of the low-key festivities was a fresh lobster feast. Mom, Ty and Aidan picked out the critters at a local lobster pound, so I guess you can say it was a custom-made dinner. Unfortunately my tummy wasn't exactly up for copious amounts of crustacean like I'd hoped it would be, but it was still fun enjoying everyone else ... enjoying!

I live with constant "left-overs" regret. I reach that inevitable point where I can't possibly eat another bite, only to leave behind on my plate a veritable feast of fab food. The next day, I think, "DAMN. I really want that [lobster/whatever] right now."

I'm having a regrettable, "left-overs" moment now.

Sigh. One of life's sad realities.
