It has been a crazy week! I think the last time I posted was a week ago. Sigh. Terrible (said in a sad spanish accent)! I told myself I would post more often, and then I didn’t. But whatever. Ground shaking things have happened. So we will move through the week chronologically.
Last Sunday, I got a new little doggy. We are on a 2-week trial period right now, but I am hopeful. Things are going really well! Roofus is still warming up to her, which is fine. Most of the time he is fine with her, but sometimes he snips at her. Given, she is highly energetic, and we are used to a very low key, snuggly life style. I’m hoping that they get to be best friends. I, personally, enjoy having a new lap warmer. She has her little head in my lap right now, sleeping and snoring. So cute!
Here are the cuties sharing the sun!
The appointment I scheduled with my Dad’s doctor was moved up to last Tuesday! What?! When I found out that I had to wait a month to see him, I immediately began praying that an appointment would open up sooner. Not that I felt like it was urgent that I be seen, but I was just ready to get help and be healthy. When I found out that appointment was available, I jumped on it. And praise God I did, because I got some serious answers. Lots of blood was drawn, lots of testing was done. It was good. I feel like I am at peace with everything now. Everything makes much, much more sense. I will receive a true diagnosis the second week of March. And I truly look forward to that.
Then comes the craziness. As I was leaving the doctor, the sky opened and we had a blizzard! I had to drive from Atlanta to my apartment in the middle of a blizzard. Imagine everyone in Atlanta picking up and leaving all at the same time. Then add in some serious snow and ice. Then add a panicked Rachel who has no idea how to drive in this weather. But then, my lovely father pulled onto the interstate right behind me (completely God’s timing) and followed me (and stayed on the phone with me) the entire way home. It was a crazy, serious experience that, as Dad says, will go down in history.
The next 2 days were covered in snow and school was cancelled. Boyfriend came over to spend time with me since I wasn’t feeling well. We went to Kroger in the Jeep, and then he cooked lunch and dinner. He is such a blessing. The dogs didn’t totally love the snow. At first they were running around and playing in it, but then their little feet got cold and they were done. Haha. It was a lot of fun.
I will leave you with pictures from the past few days!
Before she started hating it!
He liked running in the snow a lot in the beginning. :)
Keeping warm <3
More fun in the Jeep!
Enjoy your weekend, blogosphere!
