This 'n That

When I last wrote here Sir Steve was preparing for some hospital tests.  It was a rough couple of days -- even rougher on the Friday when I got to sit in the waiting room for 3 hours while he had the test... worrying about the outcome.  The doctor said everything looked fine and he didn't need another test for 10 years --


he took 3 biopsies.  And we will get the results in 6 - 8 weeks.  Biopsies when everything looked fine?!!  Ahhhh well trying very hard not to fuss too much.

Then as Sir Steve really wanted to go up to the campgrounds for the weekend on Friday - immediately following the test -- I drove him up.... all the while keeping my fingers crossed nothing went wrong.  And of course nothing did -- I am a professional worrier!

I questioned our sanity on Saturday when we woke to 9 degrees -- dear god it was cold!!  I wore layers all weekend and we had to put the heat on in the trailer.  Not exactly my idea of camping!!  But despite the cold we had fun at the closing steak dinner and enjoyed a couple of nice hot camp fires in the evenings.


On another note -- these new pills the doctor has me on are proving to be less and less fun.......... I have a low grade headache ALL the time -- when I eat I am nauseous -- and I am sleepy tired ALL the time.  Thankfully I see him in a month -- and am gonna question the necessity of my being on any pills never mind ones that don't allow me to function normally.


The lil one had an ok week in first grade.  It is taking her some time to adjust as 'being cute' isn't quite enough. I don't think she fully grasps the concept of sitting at a desk and working -- rather than chatting and dancing her way through the day.  It will be an interesting first few weeks of school I think. 


The landlord finally got the leak in the basement fixed.  So this week I will be repacking all the stuff that was in cardboard boxes into plastic bins and trying every home remedy known to man to get rid of the musty smell down there (a musty smell that is slowly seeping upstairs UGH!!)  


  1. Hi morning star,

    I have a grandson who started grade 1 last week, and he seems to get by on being 'cute' too! Also hyperactive and (we think) autistic spectrum. Don't know how he is going to make out but fingers crossed.

    As for the musty odour, you might want to try a Lampe Berger. They are expensive but really work well.


  2. Hi Morningstar,

    I'm glad to read this, I was wondering about the tests. So glad to hear it went well and that the news was good. Sounds like we are having similar temperatures. Glad you had fun at the campsite:) Good luck with the musty odour!


  3. Over here they do biopsies just to double check and rule out things. So even tho they did take 3 specimens, i wouldn't worry too much about it.

    The steak dinner and campfires sound good. I hope you manage to sort out the pills with your doctor!
