Shopping at WalmartAfter work yesterday afternoon, my boyfriend called me. He asked me to wait at the bus station. He and his friend would drive there to pick me up. First we wennt to a small restaurant that serves Wuhan specialties, as the three of us are from Hubei province. After dinner, we headed directly over to Walmart . We walked around and picked out the daily things we needed. At around 9:30, we drove back home. When we arrived , it was 9:50. I felt so tired and took a shower immediately, then went to sleep.

My friend Morpheus, with respect, please note it is a forum for correcting learners' notebooks not for correcting our friends' corrections.
1.I'm not confused between "proper" and "acceptable. The points I mentioned (clearly) were the cases that were perfectly "proper" and originally either better than your choices (like drove back) or equally correct (e.g. Hubei specialities versus Hubei cuisine), or that your option was wrong and the original was correct ( like three of us vs the three of us).
2. Yes it's The United States, but never " The New York State". There is a huge difference between the two. We either say the state of New York or New York State. You might have confused this with phrases like The New York State Penal Code, where the article is actually for the penal code, not New York.
I think some of my friends are confused between "what is proper" and "what is acceptable". With due respect to Morpheus, it is "the Hubei province" and not "Hubei province". Likewise, it is the Ontario province, the New York state, the United States. The definite article cannot be dispense with!!!!
