Well so now that I am back I thought I would start off with a few things.



Restaurants I went while in New Orleans


·          Pat O’Brian’s

·          Commanders Palace

·          Brennan's

·          Cafe Du Monde

·          Emeril's Restaurant


Fact 8 member total on the family trip all together on food alone we spent 2400. Needless to say we ate very well.



Went on a French Quarter, garden District and Cemetery tour while there and that was nifty.

Needless to say Gothman wants us to do this as a yearly event. This could be a possibility. I am just not sure yet again sometime you have to debate about having a time for yourself. I don’t care who you are everyone needs me time I would just like a vacation from everything and everyone to reflect with out distractions.  So now I have to balance out my options and find a happy balance.


I did get two cook books while there so I could attempt my hand at cooking more Cajun and Creole dishes. Maybe I can finally have some people shut the hell up and understand I can cook and stick their wooden spoon where the sun don’t shine. We stayed at a nice little Bed and breakfast place on Royal Street. Right under us was a café/food store, and everyone was really nice in the neighborhood. I would not mind too much going back a few more times now that I got more of a chance to know the city unlike in 99 when I was there to party.



Well when we got back had a few friends over for drinks and playing Taboo. Then the next day hanged out and then went to the movies and saw Resident Evil. So needless to say I am back and not sure if I am going to be up to par with working but we will see.  Tomorrow I have to see the Eye doctor to see about my eyes and maybe pick up some contacts.

Glad you had a nice break dear. Sorry to hear folks dont think you can cook, gets frusterating for me because everyone assumes Glenn is the only cook in our house.

That is the same with me. Greg cooks most times and so i dont get a real chance to cook cause we come in at differnt times and it's not worth it most times for me to cook cause by the time he is home I am going to bed.

^_^ Maybe we can have you and Glenn over for dinner sometime

Ya know. In all the time I've gone to NoLa, I've never done a tour besides the Zoo/Aquarium. I'd love to do the Historial Tours, or the Haunted Tours, one day.

Let me know when you're going down next time, maybe we could hook up. Nola is only a 1 1/2 hour drive for me.

'cause I'm so cool! (J/k) But seriously, I think it would be a lot of fun to hang out somewhere besides just Akon. :)

New Orleans...
Sounds like a blast...our trip down there got cancelled last time, as it was scheduled that one freak weekend last year when we got 4 inches of snow (and I was ill...:-( ). I'll make it down there someday...Smokin_Man lived there 4 years.

On the cooking thing... that sucks. I often cook enough for 3-4 and just put left-overs in the fridge. Maybe you & Redwing could trade off cooking for both households so you'd always cook for 3-4 people??? Dunno...just an idea.

Glad you had a relaxing blast & ate well & hope your week is nifty!

First off I would like top welcome you back. I am glad you had fun. Sorry about my bad timing with the phone call. -.-o

Take some time to rest before diving right back into things. Vacations can be just as taxing on your mind and body as work! of coarse the difference is you can have fun, but even fun needs a rest sometimes. ( and how often do we get to have fun anyway?)

Lots of love, lots of hugs, say hi to the greg-munster for me.
