The week that was – This week seemed to be wall to wall appointments of all sorts. Many of the doctor variety (my least favorite especially compared to a spa appointment). A routine checkup turned into a “you need a biopsy.” (Nothing serious or earth shattering. Just a routine check for issues I’ve had all my life.) Although annoying, I’m hoping to get a good blog post out of it. More later.
Fall out from that – That turned this coming week which was scheduled to be a peaceful interlude before Thanksgiving into an upside down one. Beloved husband had to cancel his first birthday celebration with former work friends. (We celebrate birthdays for the whole month!) Procedures mean fasting and no Starbucks. That makes me cranky just thinking about it.
On a happy note – We will be celebrating birthdays all during November. Besides the beloved husband, my sister-in-law (the one who survived the near fatal car accident) will be 90. If you saw her, you wouldn’t believe it. Although she’s on a walker, she does not look her age nor does she act it. Her synapses are snapping. There is another brother-in-law in his 80’s who will enjoy another birthday too. How did everyone get so old?
As if on cue – The cats have been especially cuddly. Do they feel my anxiety or is it just the cold that makes them cling? Maybe it’s the fireplace that is going most evenings these days.
Don’t judge a book – We had a tree cut down this week. We have used the same service for several years. The owner is very skilled at what he does. There is an awkwardness about him. Maybe he is what they call “on the spectrum.” He came highly recommended. He has a great team. Even if they have already put their equipment away, they will cut that one extra branch without any attitude. I highly recommend them. Skilled and competent beats super friendly any day.
So how was your week?
