robingen - 5 months! But glad your husband was able to come home so soon and that he can manage on crutches already.
Good advice about eating something nutritious and filling before you go out to eat. Before I go to a restaurant, I like to check out the menu online. I choose the best option or two for me from the online menu while I'm in a "sane" frame of mind. Then when I enter the restaurant and smell the fries and other wonderful aromas, I already know what I'm going to have and don't have to be tempted by the other offerings on the menu. (I do just peek at the menu to make sure my choice is still there - occasionally the restaurant has updated their menu and left the new one online).
