Another weekend come and gone. Friday after work I met Isabel for dinner. We enjoyed some Vietnamese food while we caught up. It was a nice and yummy time. Isabel and I enjoyed various satays, dumplings, Vietnamese pancake, and summer rolls. Then in the late evening when I was falling asleep on the couch and Niel was trying to repair our computer he stubbed his toe badly. I was completely out at this point because I didn't hear him yell out in pain or hit the wall. I only remember him coming out of his "man room" and mentioning his toe. I thought he meant his pinky toe which he hurt last week. I wanted to know if that hurt still. Then the next morning I noticed him walking funny I thought it was his back. It goes out every once in a while. He said "No it's my big toe. Remember?" Then he told me what happened. He then went to the doctor and I went to my dentist appointment. The dentist appointment took all morning. I'll need two crowns put in and possibly a filling taken care of. And hopefully that is it for a while. Niel's doctor appointment didn't take as long and he was icing his toe. The doctor said he either sprained his toe or broke the ball that is apparently at the tip of it. He's on pain killers and instructed to rest as well as apply ice and heat to it. Later in the afternoon Niel wanted to go the Siren Festival but decided to rest instead. We had some lunch and watched television. Niel was getting antsy when Dave called saying he wanted to give Niel some stuff before he went back home. So we drove over and hung out for a bit with Dave, Holly and Dave's parents. He and Holly were staying at his parents house and their family cat wasn't giving me as bad as an allergic reaction as I normally get around cats. So maybe the allergy shots are working? His parents made really good iced coffee and showed us tomatoes ther're growing in their garden. Hopefully we can see more of Dave & Holly next time. Afterwards Niel and I ran a quick food shopping errand and went back home where Niel napped for a while before we headed out to Giglio Festival in Brooklyn. We met up with Niel's mom, brother Mike and Erin. There weren't a lot of people there and it was a cool night. We walked around a bit snacking on various festival food and came home and fell asleep on the couch.
Sunday Niel picked up his brother and they hung out until Mike's car was finished being repaired. The autobody shop Mike uses is in our neighborhood. I went to do laundry. In the afternoon we went into Brooklyn again to attend a wake. A sister of Niel's father had passed away. Nice lady. We recently had celebrated her 85th birthday. While going into the funeral parlor Niel dropped his glasses and then stepped on them. Likely they didn't break but needed adjusting. They do have a slight scratch on the left lens so they will definitely need replacing soon. In the evening while I was putting away laundry and Niel rested his foot I was watching the Food Network and saw Paula Deen's European Adventure. This was her first trip abroad. She had suffered from Agrophobia for many years and it was an exciting experience for her and funny for me to see her reactions.
