1st Restaurant experience was a Triumph!!
Tuesday August 12th, 2008
Met up with my friends from teacher's college tonight for dinner a favorite restaurant we have always gone too. It went great! I ended up emailing head office telling them my situation (short and sweet of course) and they offered to do whatever they could to accomodate my "dining needs" - they also called the location I was going to make sure there would be no obstacles for me when I got there. By the way ... I also skipped dessert and instead had a herbal tea with honey - that's a pretty good compromise considering there was cheesecake AND ice cream on the menu and the people around me were eating peanut butter/chocolate cake.
Whew!! All these baby steps over the last few days/weeks are proving to me that this isn't as hard of a change as I had thought. I guess I was just a little unsure and uncomfortable about "how" it would all work ... now I know! Just keep it simple.
Thanks for all the helpful hints that were offered - I thought of you tonight as I sat there eating with a little smile on!
Keeping it simple,
