On Wednesday, Sept. 14th none of us got up until close to 7. Gibbs hadn’t even been out yet, going back to sleep at 5:30 when Bill told him to. “It isn’t time yet, go back to sleep”. ♥ And he did. Gosh, I love this little guy. We discussed the day over our morning drinks and cereal and planned the stops we would make. With Gibbs coming along, we could make itThe sky was more leisurely and include a few things.
We left at 8:30 and arrived in London around 11. First stop was Costco, southwest corner of the city and then we followed the gps to the northwest corner to Byron. This is where Gary, a flying friend of Bill’s, and an avid reader of my blog 😊, lives. Bill is buying something from him so it was a stop we wanted to fit into the busy day. It was noon hour and we wanted to be across town at our new doctor’s office by 1 for our appointments at 1:30.
Where can we eat along the way? Bill chose to take Adelaide St. S. and when he saw Grama & Grampa’s chip wagon was open, that solved the problem. What a good choice! It sure doesn’t look like much but their food made up for it. A burger and fries combo for each of us was just what we needed. It would have cost us more to go to a burger joint so this, even though more costly than it used to be, was the right choice.
Yes, we left Gibbs in the car with windows down for our appointment, which was just around the hour. Our doctor is young and very pleasant. I feel as long as I can speak openly, make a joke or two to get a laugh, things will be just fine. And the good news is that I felt comfortable and got the results I was looking for. He met with both of us together and updated our files with any new information since our last check up with our former doc. Yup, I think he’ll do! 😊
We drove home after another walk around for our little sweetie. He looked after the car just fine and was sleeping when I returned first. The drive home was uneventful, thank goodness, getting out of the crazy traffic in the city being the hardest part. I relieved Bill from driving about 20 minutes from home and we walked in the door around 5:30. We’re so glad we didn’t leave Gibbs at home for the day, it was too long and we’d have worried about him.
We weren’t hungry for supper so I had Madame IP boil some eggs for egg salad and then made Bill’s sandwich for work. We had a cup of tea and I had cheese and a snack. This was a successful day. Meeting our new doctor has been on our minds for a while.
We have a few follow up things, for either now or when we return in the spring. Nothing of concern, just normal checks to tick off all the boxes for Dr. Obute. The weather was quite nice today, with about 8 degrees different here than in the big city 2 ½ hours away. Typical, it's Ontario.
Thank you for stopping in to see what we’re up to!
