Weekend Roundup

Another super busy weekend. Friday I saw the new pain doctor and really liked her. The takeaway from that long visit is that she did several (NINE!!) trigger point shots that day. Those are for the muscles pain and they helped. For the nerve pain, she wants to try an epidural. They already schedule that for mid-January assuming my insurance approves it. The one thing I really liked was both she and her assistant were the first ones to tell me that the ringing in my ears may be related. That’s actually a relief.

The fun part of the weekend was Nursery Assembly Day! I didn’t get any good pictures, but Special K has a jungle theme with really cute trees, monkeys, and other animal decals that we put on the walls. It looks adorable! I can’t wait to be a grandma :-)

Maggie went to her first doggy day care on Saturday and seemed to do well. Next weekend we’ll try the overnight boarding there. Our sons are finding this all hilarious. I keep trying to explain, but then I hear myself saying it out loud and yeah, it’s funny that we’re doing all this for a dog. On the upside, it’s going to be nice to have a place to leave her if we’re going to be gone for eight hours, overnight or traveling.

So that’s the quick version of my weekend. How was yours?

    Yay! You found a doctor you like! I hope it all works for you and you can get past this. :hugs: Yay for a happy Assembly Day! And for Maggie doing well at the boarder’s. It’s not silly, it’s important to find a good boarding facility before you need one. Smart work, you two.

    I read, I watched TV, etc. I attempted to use the leftovers from TGD to make stew (they’ve been in the freezer since then), but it was a huge fail. Not sure what went wrong, but it tasted gross, so I tossed it. Luckily, I did this before I wasted too much groceries, so I only ended up losing leftover turkey, one onion, and a few hours of time. We had BLTs instead and Hubs was happy.

    Two thumbs up on the new doc and treatments!!! Awwww. Jungle critters! Finding doggie care is very important! And smart of you to preplan. *nods*

    I hid all weekend. I just couldn’t get up the energy to do much of anything beyond listen to audio books and watch Hallmark movies. Total slug time. And now I’m feeling guilty for not working. :-?

    Plus…Christmas. Really feeling a bit Scroogie at the moment. Bad Silver! I know. Anyway…. Off to work. Have a great week!

    B.E. that’s what we want with Maggie. The kids just like teasing us :-)

    Maybe freezer burn? Who knows. I have stuff turn funky on me like that every once in awhile. BLTs work! For Wizard, it turns into a chance to have pizza so he’s usually happy.

    Glad everything else was good on your weekend!

    Silver, see I agree with you on doggie day care. My boys are brats :-)

    You really needed down time, and I’m glad you took it even if guilt tagged along. It’s okay to feel scroogie, some years are like that. We aren’t robots, and dang, the commercial pressure driving people to depression. I could really rant, but I’ll control myself. Hugs, and maybe you can focus on your grandson and the things you like doing with him for the holiday and forget the rest?

    Happy Monday :-)
