Late June and still here!

Just a quick update.

I just got back from a weekend trip to visit my granddaughter, son & DIL as they house sit while between selling their house and finding a new one in the very hot Berkeley housing market. A 1 1/2 year old is such fun and so exhausting at the same time. I found I do remember the words to the Eensy Weensy Spider song and she likes my out of tune singing a lot.

We are all healthy again and my FIL's diagnosis turned out to be a pre-cancerous esophageal lesion with little likelihood of spreading in time to cause him problems given his age (91) so no treatment required. He is anemic too so they are figuring out how to manage that but that is a minor issue and he will feel better once it is solved. Yeah!

I am really appreciating the new vet we switched to. He actually took the time to read and analyze her records from 6 years with the same vet in Atlanta and then asked questions. The first vet we had here asked for the records and never looked at them.

Wedding plans are almost finished for my older son and his long time sweetie. She wants me to go to the LA flower mart with her early one morning so we will schedule that soon and I'll sleep over the night before. I've always wanted to see it.

I had a fun outing with 2 new friends going to thrift shops and out to eat in Ventura. I like both of these women a lot and have met another woman through the Women's Club I joined so slowly building my local tribe. Hubby is doing the same through playing pickleball.

Hope you are kicking off the summer well too.


  1. Three cheers (or barks?) for a good vet!

    1. Indeed - especially when you have a dog with a chronic illness (Addison's disease in this case).

  2. I know what you mean about a 1 1/2 year old being fun but exhausting. My two-year-old nephew is so fun and funny, but he never stops moving. Sometimes he actually bounces in place.


Week 11: A bit of a breather + tracking the true cost of moving

Two weeks to go before we move!  Just a little packing this week plus bringing the saved specialty boxes out of the attic. Found boxes for p...
