Hey! Sorry for the late blog! We had a later than usual night on Sunday, and the blog slipped my mind until the morning when I looked at my phone to see if the blog posted. That’s when I remembered I never wrote it, LOL! Then the morning made Monday-like demands, and here I am. Finally!
So it was a good weekend. Friday night, I got the good news that my CT scan was clear other than a partially distended stomach which is not a big deal right now and not a surprise given all my symptoms. That news is a relief and pretty much tells us what the pain is likely from — which is a functional problem not an illness or something else more worrisome.
Saturday was chores and errands. Part of those errands was feeding my grand dog, Phoebe, her dinner while her parents were out. Boy did I get an earful when I went in the house. She met me at the door and told me exactly how her parents had left her alone! If I hadn’t showed up, she might have starved to death or had some other equally dramatic misfortune. This dog is 100% goofball Golden Retriever. She cracks me up. She’s also perfectly fine by herself. When I left, I am confident she slept until her parents got home then told them a story of how she’d had to fight off scary villains or forage for her own food like the abandoned dogs she once saw on a TV show. The one thing I’d love her to tell me is how she knows it’s me at the door??? She doesn’t even bark when I come over anymore, yet I’ve seen her bark fiercely when a “stranger” comes to the door. Can she smell me? Does she recognize my footsteps? She’s not at the window, so how does she know????
Sunday we got to see Turbo!! They came out late in the day and we had a great time. I took Turbo on a walk on a group of empty lots that have piles of dirt. His dad and I were trying to take him to a parked tractor, but Turbo was way too distracted by the piles of dirt. We did eventually make it to the tractor which he also enjoyed. When we finally got back to the house, grandpa took him out back for more playing in the dirt. But grandpa one-upped us by building a ramp down our hill for his monster trucks I had no clue grandpa had saved wood for this project! I was highly amused.
And…guys…they brought us a housewarming gift! Wizard and I were beyond thrilled! This is like a dream come true. A Roomba!!! I know, I know. Other people dream of vacations or whatnot, but we have a robot vacuum! We would definitely not have bought it for ourselves and certainly never asked anyone else too, but they did it and we LOVE it! We hugely appreciate it too. Of course we’ll still vacuum and sweep, but this will help so much.
So it was a good weekend for us, how was yours?
Can you all believe it’s Thanksgiving weekend (if you’re here in the U.S.)???
