Wow, this day certainly did not go as I had planned it! It’s almost 10:00 p.m. and I just got home from the sans rendez-vous clinique (basically a non-emergency immediate care clinic) with Joel. Hours were from 6-9 p.m., so we got there at 5:45 to ensure a “first or second spot”. Ha ha! We were #24 out of their limit of 25! Three long hours we waited for our turn. He was diagnosed with asthma a couple years ago, (I wrote about it here, and I think it’s a good little story so you should maybe read it if you haven’t) and after getting a little cold a few weeks ago, his cough just would not go away. I suspected it was related to the diagnosis. His little blue pump wasn’t doing the trick. So now we have the orange and hopefully he’ll be on the mend soon.
A knock: I’d like to knock some fresh news this week from some dear friends that they are moving. I felt a deep sadness for a couple days and felt like doing this.
Actually, I did do that. But it wasn’t as cute.
This is our sweet little friend, Santiago. I need to post the other pictures I took of him this week. He’s too much!
A boost: I’d like to boost the fun dinner party we hosted on Friday night. It was a very special evening for me.
And I’d also like to boost the great time we had on Thursday night with a couple dear friends that have since moved from Quebec City but were both in town this week. D is back visiting from Venezuela, B lives in Gatineau. We had supper with them at D’s sister-in-laws. They made T-bones for the guys and filet mignon for the girls, and my family went wild. Joel said, the next day when we were traipsing through the grocery store, “Man, I just can’t stop thinking about that steak!” I think it’s how we all felt.
A New Experience: I had a new experience this last week when I went Reverse Trick-or-Treating on Saturday afternoon. I’ve never even gone regular Trick-or-Treating, for that matter.
