Debbee Tarr ~ Owner/Operator Manteca Grocery Outlet
I used to buy myself flowers every week. Try not smiling when you see that first thing in the morning. I figured retail therapy was in order. I got a great new purse, she got a couple pairs of sandals and we both left smiling. Next time you find yourself in the same sitch, check this list for a quick smile:. Take a field trip ~ to a museum or weird roadside attraction Retail therapy ~ I like to pretend that I have a $25 or $50 gift card so it doesn’t turn into an out-of-control addiction Buy yourself flowers ~ They are cheaper than you think (unless...

It will contain a grand family room, a gorgeous dining room, connected to a stainless steal appliance kitchen and the master suite, which will be my favorite room. Above my fireplace, hanging on the cream colored wall is a forty-inch Samsung flat screen TV. In the corner of the family room is my blue fluffy and comfy recliner, which was bought for my father when he comes to visit. The best thing about this room is the popcorn Machine, you can pop some popcorn before you watch a movie and then you can sit down with a big bowl of it. Connected to my flat screen is my V. C. R my D. V. D player and my movie projector. The flooring of the family room is a oak hardwood, with brown and beige area rugs, which I would place in front of the couch. On the left wall there is a window about three feet by three feet, with beige, cream, and brown curtains. My family room will feel welcoming as soon as I open up the front door to let you in, you will feel warm, and comforted by the love my home will bring. My gorgeous dining area is a romantic place to eat, while it contains a beautiful chandelier above the chestnut ding table, which can place up to eight people. Most of the light comes from an enormous six-foot window with cherry red curtains, which is located at the fare end of the room, facing the back yard. My old faded chestnut grandfather clock was bought from an antique auction.
My son has been trudging along this painful road for months now, ever since the keen eye of his grandfather, a retired orthopedic surgeon, spotted the issue. We met with the surgeon and his assistant who walked us step-by-step through the procedure and detailed excruciatingly what tubes and gadgets they would be poking into my son. But the best news my son could receive came from the meeting with the anesthetists, who said they could use gas to first put him unconscious so he would not have to suffer through the insertion of the IV (and worse). Pre-op moments help ease the worry. The whole family gathered into a private pre-op room where we made small talk and slowly started to see the effects of a pre-op, pain-relieving medicine he was given. When the time came for the operation, his brother and I kissed his cheek and said we loved him. Mom had put on a disposable surgical gown and walked along the gurney to the operating room. When my wife returned with word our boy had drifted swiftly to sleep and the work had started we moved to a waiting room where other families were gathered. One of the nurses came by and said she was our “family advocate” and promised regular updates every two hours as the operation proceeded.
