Monday Meeting ~~~ November 9, 2015

Monday Meeting


Today’s meeting is a bit late, but it’s still Monday so I did make it! I hope everyone’s weekend was great and the week brings sunshine and smiles to you.

Guess what I woke up to this morning? Snow!! About two inches of the white fluffy stuff was here and more was coming down. First major snow of the coming winter season. Of course, the husband and I had to go out in it this morning. We had to go to the hospital for his CT scan. We were there for three hours. They scanned his stomach and lungs for more tumors. We should know Thursday afternoon the results of the scan. The reason it took so long as he had to drink a liter of water with something mixed in it for his stomach scan. A big glass every half an hour for 2 hours. That’s a lot of water and a lot of sitting on their uncomfortable chairs.

At least he had me there to talk to. It was a long wait. Then they took him in to be scanned and injected him with their special devil’s potion of ink stuff. So he was full of it today. Ha, which doesn’t mean he isn’t usually full of something. 😉

All in all he’s doing pretty good, considering. I know he’s worried and scared, so am I, but he is handling it a lot better than most thought he would.

Sam got groomed last Monday too. The groomer I have is a wonderful woman named Tammy who runs a Mobile Dog Grooming trailer. I love that she comes to the house. Sure makes things easier on Sam. She took a picture of Sam for Christmas in an elf hat, fancy tutu collar next to a big box of toys. As soon as I can get a copy of it I will post it. She’s doing it for all her dogs and her customers as we don’t see her in December. She takes the month off to be with family during the holiday season. I can’t wait to see Sam in his Christmasy outfit.

Pretty boring week I had last week. Same for the weekend. Nothing much going on. Well, I mean there is always something going on, but some things I can’t mention as it’s not my story to tell. Let’s just say I’m so glad I don’t have kids and what kids we do have is the husband’s. 😉 Not that he needs the drama right now. Unfortunately, I can’t control everything he hears.

So that’s pretty much it for me for now. Next Monday will be a new update on things in the crazy world I live in.





I enjoy reading, writing, and painting. I love animals and at present have one dog (Sam) and 2 cats (brother and sister, Notwen and Pouncer). I've lived in various places in the USA and now in Canada. I've always enjoyed watching life and people and have developed an appreciation for it all. My outlook is sometimes out of the normal.... but that's what makes things so interesting! I am always interested in the opinions of others. Everyone has their own outlook and it's always worthwhile to listen!

  1. A scary time, to be sure. Thank goodness you have your Sam to keep things a bit more cheery. Our little fur-baby is also named Sam (Samson, Sammy, Sam-a-ling-a-ding-dong, Sammy-San, the Samsonator…)


  2. Good luck, I hope husband’s latest scans will come out clean and help lift his spirits about his health.

    Please keep the white stuff, I’m not ready for it. 🙂


    1. Thank you Lois. He’s super worried. I’m thinking all will be ok.
      The white stuff will be gone soon, suppose to warm up tomorrow. 🙂


  3. You wrote this on Monday. It’s Thursday and I’m just getting to it. They turned the clock to race and you have to write everyday in addition to everything else. November writing would never work for me. I’m busy all the way through December. And I can’t think then. I’m keep good thoughts for you and hubby. I think I had one of those where you drink that crap and the inject die so they can see your gut. Nasty stuff. Snow is so much better than ice. We don’t get much snow but we do get some ice on the roads. I don’t like driving when the temps dip. Scary! Big hugs.


    1. I may not be able to do a post a day, as this month is crazy and about to get crazier. But, I’m going to try. If not, no biggie. 😉
      Big hugs!
