A Glimpse of Our Weekend

The weekend was a lot of fun, but I cannot tell a lie...I had my moments where I was moody...blame the pill and blame the anxiety of the upcoming lap.

Friday night we went out to our favorite watering hole to celebrate my day...even the puppies were able to join us! It was great fun! My Mom was quite a the time we got back to the house she had been up for about 22 hours straight.

Saturday we went to a high school football playoff was great fun! The son of the HR director at J's work was playing. I think we are planning on going to his next game on Saturday - it will be played at the Alamodome.

Sunday was super was full of NFL football and resting. Mom and I threw some clothes shopping in there too! I was able to thoroughly enjoy one of my birthday gifts on youngest brother and his family sent me a package from Legal Sea Foods...we enjoyed clam chowder while watching the Patriots. It was perfect. :)

We had a few downfalls too - outside of my moods - poor Garnett had two seizures. Both happened while he was in his crate, so on a positive note, everyone was safe. It was so strange...he had one Friday night about 10 - 15 minutes after going to bed. We blamed it on being out late at the bar. ;)
Then he had another one at about 3:00am this morning...I can't come up with anything as to why that one occurred. We are off to the vet's tomorrow at 8:00am to get him checked out and to see if there is something we can do to help. We also need to talk about what we should do for boarding while we are away for the holidays. I hate the thought of him having an episode while we are not there.

I leave you with a few pictures. :)

 Garnett at the Flying Saucer...he's a perfect "wing man"!

New England Patriots and New England clam is good!


  1. What a wonderful gift from your brother! I had my fill of chowder while home. Even had a cup at the Boston airport before my flight (I needed to seize the last opportunity).

    I wish I lived close to you- I'd take such good care of the pups, especially sweet Garnett.

    1. The "chowda" is soo good!! My brother sent a gallon - so we'll have it for more than one meal :)

  2. Sounds like a perfect weekend! So glad you were able to enjoy.

    Poor Garnett! I'm glad he's okay, but how scary. Hoping the vet has some insight.

    1. Thanks :) Really hoping we get some answers today...I hate seeing Garnett suffer.

  3. I hope all is ok with sweet Garnett.

    I have to admit I have never had clam chowder, but I think I need to.

  4. I'm so glad you had such a nice birthday weekend. Sorry to hear about Garnett's seizures, though. I hope the vet can find a solution to help him.

  5. I hope Garnett is feeling better and the vet can figure out what's going on! Happy birthday - that chowda looks so yummy!
