Happy Homemaker 2018-03-05

A new week is in the works.  Last week had my annual gastro appointment... of course nothing new there... he did prescribe new meds (at my demand) but insurance refuses to pay have some paper work to deal with before they review my prescription.  DD is still waiting for the insurance too and for now she has no treatment, just some anti-inflammatories.

We went to Drummondville on Saturday (where my daughter lives - 2 hours away).  Met my sis & brother-in-law there too.  we were to see my nephews' hockey tournament but he was sick and did not go.  We got to see the video of our Florida vacation that my daughter put together - real nice!  We came back home on Saturday night.

The weather
Around 0C all week - so quite balmy.  There is to be snow starting Wednesday, Thursday and Friday though.
