Lunch With Hubby

Today for lunch, Hubby and I decided to go to Red Lobster and try the new $15 special that has been advertised on TV lately.  You can view the menu choices we had at http://www.redlobster.com/menus/specials/Default.asp?.


Hubby had Creamy Potato Bacon Soup; Cheddar Bay Biscuits; Fresh Caesar Salad; Parrot Isle Jumbo Coconut Shrimp and for dessert Key Lime Pie.

Key Lime Cheesecake

I had Creamy Potato Bacon Soup; Cheddar Bay Biscuits; Fresh Garden Salad; Shrimp-and-Scallops Alfredo; and Triple-Chocolate Brownie à la Mode. 

Chocolate Brownieand Vanilla Ice Cream

It was a lot of food and neither one of us was able to finish the soup, salad or entree.  We did both eat all of our desserts! The pasta was rather heavy and the sauce was a bit much. I probably wont order it again.  The Coconut Shrimp was awesome and comes with a very good pineapple dipping sauce.


I give the meal an overall rating of Yummy!  But the best part was having a nice meal with my hubby.

Tired

Tired By Shannon G. Wamsley
May 17, 2011

I am tired of loving for and caring for people that do nothing but dump on me.
I am tired of being lied to.
I am tired of being cheated on.
I am tired of being in a relationship that has no meaning.
I am tired of being a nobody.
I am tired of always giving and getting nothing in return.
I am tired of always being the nice person and always giving in to what other people want.
I am tired of always listening to everyone but no one listens to me.
I am tired of not being able to do anything right.
I am tired of being a horrible housekeeper.
I am tired of being fat and ugly.
I am tired of not being loved.
I am tired of..no matter what I say, life will go on as usual with me looking like an idiot.
I am tired of people walking over me.

I may not be everybody’s 1st choice, but I’m a great choice. I don’t pretend to be someone I’m not, because I’m great at being me. I may not be proud of some things in my past, but I am proud of who I am today. So, take me as I am, or watch me as I walk away

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)

I have spent the last week in the hospital. And my diagnosis is ….Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA); which is mainly in my lower, left leg. I am now at home on some very strong antibotics and hoping I get better very soon. I do not like not being able to move around!

**************MORE INFORMATOIN**************************

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection is caused by a strain of staph bacteria that’s become resistant to the antibiotics commonly used to treat ordinary staph infections.

Most MRSA infections occur in people who have been in hospitals or other health care settings, such as nursing homes and dialysis centers. When it occurs in these settings, it’s known as health care-associated MRSA (HA-MRSA). HA-MRSA infections typically are associated with invasive procedures or devices, such as surgeries, intravenous tubing or artificial joints.

Another type of MRSA infection has occurred in the wider community — among healthy people. This form, community-associated MRSA (CA-MRSA), often begins as a painful skin boil. It’s spread by skin-to-skin contact. At-risk populations include groups such as high school wrestlers, child care workers and people who live in crowded conditions.

Symptoms:

Staph skin infections, including MRSA, generally start as small red bumps that resemble pimples, boils or spider bites. These can quickly turn into deep, painful abscesses that require surgical draining. Sometimes the bacteria remain confined to the skin. But they can also burrow deep into the body, causing potentially life-threatening infections in bones, joints, surgical wounds, the bloodstream, heart valves and lungs.

Causes:

There are different varieties of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria, commonly called “staph.” Staph bacteria are normally found on the skin or in the nose of about one-third of the population. The bacteria are generally harmless unless they enter the body through a cut or other wound, and even then they usually cause only minor skin problems in healthy people.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 1 percent of the population carries the type of staph bacteria known as MRSA.

Antibiotic resistance
MRSA is the result of decades of often unnecessary antibiotic use. For years, antibiotics have been prescribed for colds, flu and other viral infections that don’t respond to these drugs. Even when antibiotics are used appropriately, they contribute to the rise of drug-resistant bacteria because they don’t destroy every germ they target. Bacteria live on an evolutionary fast track, so germs that survive treatment with one antibiotic soon learn to resist others.
