I had seafood chowder and a caesar salad - it was very tasty. The Bridgemans Bistro in Mill Bay if you are ever in the area.
Other than that we have been working 10 hr days, hubby worked all weekend and both of us worked on Sunday but we did manage to fit in a short walk with Buddy. I have only done about 3000-5000 steps a day for the last week (I feel lazy) and my foot is somewhat better after getting an anti-inflammatory in pill form. Yesterday I did 9300 steps just from regular life and it feels ok so I am pretty sure I will be fine on my holiday but will continue to put anti-inflammatory ointment on it daily just in case.
Our bedroom looks like a tornado hit it - we are partially packed but still things to sort out. I suddenly realized yesterday my very old electrical converter was coming apart. I had used it with a separate adapter for plugging in things in Europe and it wasn't great but worked. With only a couple days to go and a town with only one place to buy them (no selection) I looked on amazon and found a super duper converter and adapter in one with USB ports and multiple plug ins. It wasn't cheap but I am sure I will get a lot of use out of it as we travel so much. Hubby has amazon prime for the company so I am hoping they live up to their delivery schedule and it will be delivered on Wednesday. It includes a surge protector as well, super important as this trip we have to take one of the company laptops as have too many irons in the fire business-wise to not have access to it.
We fly out to Edmonton on Friday then to Amsterdam and on to Rome on Saturday. All four of us are excited, this trip has taken more planning than any other, primarily because it is 3 countries and 4 of us (Italy, Vatican City and France). Hopefully all the planning pays off. I plan to try all sorts of pastas, wines, liquers and desserts in Italy and hope to find a really good crepe place in France.
See you on the other side mid-May - Arrivederci!
