Our weekend is very relaxed, since I was out of town most of the week. I went in for physical therapy on Friday afternoon, and I believe Phillip ("The King of Pain") will be releasing me next week. I only have to go two days next week and I might be on my own. YAY!!!

Oh, I found somewhere locally to get black pearl drinks (bubble drinks) - Fat Straws does amazing bubble driniks - tea, cream and sugar with pearls, smoothies with pearls, flavored milk with pearls, lattes with pearls. YUM. absolute_lethe, I blame YOU for this new addiction :)

We also took Michael and Matthew in for their three year checkups on Friday. The doc agreed that it sounds like Matthew might have exercise induced asthma. He doesn't wheeze, he just gets to coughing and just keeps coughing. Sometimes he makes himself sick with the coughing. Doc prescribed Albuterol and a mask, since he can't use the inhaler yet. We've got an appointment in a couple of weeks with a Peds Pulmonologist to confirm or rule out asthma. I hope, for his sake, that it isn't, but we'll deal with whatever we're dealt.

Today has been nothing but schoolwork and lounging. I'm trying to complete several finance class assignments by Monday and they are giving me quite a problem. I cleaned up the backyard and we spent the morning running around, playing with the dogs and reading.

Oh yeah - and also laying around with a cold bear on my face. Matthew, Michael and I were having a pillow fight in the living room, which turns into a tickle-fest on the floor. A small pillow fell on my face, and Michael fell on top of me. His knee went RIGHT into my eye socket. As he always says...'OWIE! OWIE!'. I'm waiting to see if I end up with a black eye.

It feels so good to not really do anything for the weekend. Life is too hectic - mostly my choice, but still hectic - and time to just goof off with the family is precious.

What's with this sudden discovery of boba? (aka pearl drink, aka bubble drink) After all, I've blogged about this a couple times!

I got into boba years ago, and can advise all sorts of places which sell it: Fat Straw is just one of them, but probably the nearest to you. You'll find several in Richardson, which has a large Asian community. Lollicup is probably the Big Dog since they franchise, but my favorite is the restaurant behind Maxim's on Greenville (north of Beltline/Main Street). I usually ask them to "go easy on the pearl" since they have a tendency to overdo those tapioca balls. The closest place to me that sells boba is probably Noodle Bar at Coit/Campbell (next to Chili's, on the Target side).

It is a new addiction, but not a new discovery. It
always sounded gross to me (I don't particularly
like tapioca). I'm always up for trying new things,
though, so I had it last week and actually enjoyed
it. I know where Lollicup is, and I'll have to look for Maxim's next time we go for Dim Sum in that
area. I'll have to go check out the noodle bar

I go to Fat Straws right now only because I have
physical therapy over in that area (Parker and
Midway) so it's only two blocks away.
