The bathroom is to be kept neat and orderly at all times. If necessary, TURN ON THE FAN as a courtesy to other staff members and patients. We appreciate your cooperation with this matter.
As you can guess, this wasn't a random thing we decided to do today, but done more out of necessity. And although it was a pretty serious situation at the time, there is always some humor that comes with the fact we do have in place a "Bathroom Memo".

Well, for some reason it took "Dr. Newman" roughly 20-25 minutes before he made his way into my room (which happens to be the ONLY patient room in the whole building.) He walked in wearing nothing less than a what appeared to be fishing vest that kept the rest of the tools he may need. Again, I'm not sure why I was expecting anything more from Urgent Care, but the Doctor fit right it in this "horror room." Well, he took a look at my ear and said the whole thing is swollen, and that I have an ear infection. So, I guess he has his license at least, because he was able to prescribe me a few items to help kick it. So now I have the necessary items that will help clear what ever is in my ear!

Last Saturday night Forrest, Jamie and I went to Sullivan's Steak House. (Mike couldn't go because he was slaving away at workL.) For anyone who hasn't had the privilege of eating at Sullivan's you are definitely missing out. They don't really have too many locations, but for some reason we have one here in the great state of Alaska. It was kind of a spur of the moment decision for us to go, but a well made decision. Forrest works there as a waiter, and actually had the night off, so he made the suggestion that we go. I had crab stuffed halibut, with a steak on the side (I don't know all the fancy names for the different cuts of steaks, sorry.) They also gave me their gorgonzola garlic dipping sauce for my steak, which was to die for. We were treated like royalty, because of Forrest's wonderful connection, which made our dining experience that much more fun. They had a non-alcoholic wine that had been given to the steakhouse that Forrest has wanted to try, so they gave that to us as well. As you can see, Forrest looks a little tipsy, but I can assure you that no alcohol was consumed. I thought the stuff was nasty, but who am I to judge really. They do their side dished 'Ala Carte' so we ordered their scalloped potatoes and asparagus with this amazing butter dipping sauce. Then came dessert: Jamie and I shared this chocolate brownie that was cooked on the outside, but still a little doughy on the inside, topped off with some vanilla ice cream. Oh, so good! Due to the price of their menu, Sullivan's isn't typically a restaurant that we pick, but it is greatly enjoyed every time we go! (And when it's free, it's even that much better!) I'll make sure Mike is in attendance next time too!
