Friday Five

TGIF! Time to share five random things about our week. Here’s mine:

  1. It’s going to rain this weekend. It’s been very rainy this year, but we don’t generally get the same deluges in my area that other spots in California do.
  2. My frustration was pretty high yesterday. I spent hours making phone calls and trying to do other people’s job. I really wish people in one medical group or organization would pick up the phone and call the other. I’m just the patient who doesn’t actually have all the various info (and that’s another rant, but we’ll save that for another day). In one case, it’s taken me two days worth of phone calls, but I finally got it resolved yesterday afternoon. On the other issue, I’m still waiting for a return call. The bright spot in all this is that I have spoken to a few really nice people who have genuinely been trying to help, so that’s a win, right?
  3. Poor Maggie was so restless while I was trapped on the phone, that I finally ended the call, ate lunch and took Maggie for a long walk. I was proud of myself for just walking away and having fun with Maggie. We found huge fogs and lots of tadpoles in a storm runoff pond. Maggie “pointed” to a few birds. Maggie is not a pointer breed (she’s a mix) but she definitely points. I’ve had a German shorthair pointer and know what that looks like. It’s pretty funny. She actually has a pretty good pointer stance.
  4. I’ve been sitting on some good (not professional) news in our family. But still waiting to mention it. It makes me smile every single day.
  5. It’s going to be just me and Wizard for Easter, so I think I’ll make ribs. That’s been my plan, but i don’t buy the ribs until a day or two before. Neither one of us care for ham, so ribs it is! I really hope everyone who celebrates has a lovely Easter!

That’s my five, now I’d love to hear yours! Happy Easter and have a great weekend!

    1. Rain is good in spring. I always enjoy it. Poor Maggie will get wet feet on her walks.
    2. I’m glad you were able to deal with some nice people but I hear you on the frustration with medical/insurance.
    3. That’s so cool that Maggie turns out to be a pointer.
    4. You have me guessing. When you tell us I’ll let you know if I was right.
    5. Ribs sounds wonderful. I hope you and Wizard have a very Happy Easter.

    1a. Got my hair done today.
    2a. We’re supposed to have quite a bit of rain this weekend too. Sure hope it’s done by the 8th for the eclipse.
    3a. All the tax info has been sent to the CPA😊. Hope it’s done fast and not too shocking.
    4a. Spunk had his yearly and he’s all good.
    5a. The pants for hubs and my dress arrived three days ago and I haven’t even looked at the dress yet. I need to do that tomorrow.

    Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Easter!

    Viki, it’s been a lot of rain here, it was two wet to walk this morning. But Maggie and I did two walks yesterday :-)

    1) Yay for fresh hair! I got mine done on Wednesday and feel better for it.
    2) I hope you can see the eclipse too! I don’t think we can see it here.
    3) Fingers crossed on no tax surprises! Bet it feels good to get it all off to the CPA though.
    4) Good.
    5) I’ve done that! I think we have to be in the right mood to decide if we love a piece of clothing or not. Hope you do love it!

    Have a great Easter!
