Summing up last week with my knocks, my boosts, and my new experiences

For background on this Monday feature here at Le Blab, you could go to this post

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.
