I really did plan to do the awning today., The weather was perfect, sunny and in the low 50’s with no wind.

Bu business intervened. I spent the morning and early afternoon mocking up website designs for a couple of possible new clients.

Separately, two people approached me recently to do sites for them, and I’ve found that it’s easier to get a sale by having something to show them to start with.

I’ll know more in the next couple of days.

A little after noon, Jan’s urologist called to see how she was doing, and also to say that based on some later test results that came back, he wants to put her on Keflex for the next four days until after the Lithotripsy on Thursday afternoon. Said he’d call it in to Wal-Mart and we could pick it up. This is the second time he’s called to check up on Jan, and on a Sunday too. Very nice.

About 4pm Jan and I headed up to Clear Lake to have dinner and pick up the new script. We hadn’t been to El Pollo Loco for a while so that was our first stop.

We first discovered them in 2008 when they were only out in California, so it’s nice to see them heading east finally.

Jan and I have both been trying to cut down for our New Year’s Resolution so we’ve been watching our calories. And it’s amazing the difference between different items.

For instance, if you get the individual size Chunky Guacamole it’s 220 calories. But if you get the same size with chips, it’s 980 calories. Or the Creamy Cilantro Dressing is 320 calories, but the Light Creamy Cilantro Dressing is 70 calories, a big difference. And it’s hard to taste difference

So by choosing carefully from the menu, all of this was only 820 calories.

El Pollo Loco Meal

That’s two pieces of their chicken, two sides of steamed broccoli, a small Tortilla Soup, and a Classic Chicken Salad. And I couldn’t finish all of the salad.

And besides coffee and an apple later, that was it for the day.

And it was really good.
