Genifer had Lasik surgery.

This afternoon Genifer had Lasik surgery at Lasik Plus in Kenwood

She was really nervous but powered through the procedure. We were at the doctor for about forty-five minutes. But the actual procedure only took about ten minutes, and then she was on her way home…

She was told to go home and take a four-hour nap. After she woke up from her nap, she could see just fine without contacts or glasses. She has to put medicated eyedrops in her eyes for the next couple weeks. And she can’t rub her eyes for some time while her eyes heal. But that’s pretty much that. It’s rather amazing what modern medical science can do nowadays. And that are people with the knowledge and intestinal fortitude to perform these procedures. 😀🏥👁️❤️

It’s like a whole new computer.

Last Tuesday, I was updating the operating system on my MacBook from Sierra to High Sierra. The computer went to restart but never powered back on. I tried every keyboard command and trick I could find online. I chatted with Apple support and we couldn’t get it to reboot so this afternoon I brought it to the sea of humanity that is the Apple Store at Kenwood Towne Center to see if they could get me back up and running…

Thankful, they got my computer to power on again. They replaced the battery in my MacBook, and now it’s like a whole brand new computer again! 😀🍏💻🔋❤️

Seen and noted.

Yesterday on our way back home from West Chester, we stopped at Circle K to get some gas. We saw these chile & lime puffed wheat snacks that I have never heard of before…

And there was this clever floor sign…

Next time, we’re trying some of those snacks. This afternoon we stopped at Home Goods. We saw these adorable little polar bears…

And we saw this seven-foot-tall giant polar bear…

It can be ours for just $999. What would you do with that guy and more importantly, where would you store him for the other 11-months of the year? 😀🇲🇽🐉🐻❤️

 

Texas Roadhouse.

It seems like everything to eat around the Madeira/Kenwood area is a chain restaurant. We don’t really spend much time in that part of town. But after picking up Genifer’s newly altered wedding dress in Madeira, we stopped at Texas Roadhouse in Kenwood. Sure, it’s a chain restaurant but it’s a chain restaurant that we’ve never been to before. And up until a couple of weeks ago, it’s a chain restaurant that I’d never even heard of…

Genifer had a garden salad and a cup of chili…

I started with a caesar salad, which disappeared really quickly…

I started with the basket of their “award-winning ribs” with steak fries…

When I saw that they had a starter basket of ribs I just had to try them. I had to to see how they stacked up against what I consider to be the best ribs in Cincinnati which are down at Moerlein Lager House. These were a third of a rack and were really good. Especially for a chain restaurant. They were fall off the bone tender and the sauce was delicious. The only downside was that they pretty fatty. Lager House still has the best ribs, in my opinion. I also tried the Beef Tips: cuts of steak with sautéed mushrooms, onions, brown gravy and sour cream over seasoned rice or mashed potatoes…

It was pretty awesome stuff. The beef tips were very tender, the gravy was delicious and full of mushrooms and the mashed potatoes were so creamy especially after I mixed in the sour cream…

It was a really great lunch. But I ordered way too much food. Next time, I wouldn’t get a starter. I’d just go straight for the main course. But we would definitely stop back into Texas Roadhouse again. Good stuff! 🙂
