My mother in law was here earlier this week for a three day whirlwind visit. She came to Toronto for a series of medical tests and she wanted me to accompany her to the hospital for her tests. So … needless to say, I’ve had a busy few days – starting with a major house cleaning on the weekend to prepare for her visit. LOL
My Mother in Law arrived on Monday afternoon, but it wasn’t until Tuesday and Wednesday that she had to have her medical testing done, so Monday evening was a free night for her. My husbands uncle’s health hasn’t been very good over the last two or three years so we all decided to go over to his and his aunts house for a visit. We don’t go over there to visit all that often, so Chris’ aunt decided to call two of her children over and they came (with their kids) for a visit while we were there too, so it was a full house!
I actually think there were too many people at my husbands uncles house on Monday evening because we found that we didn’t talk with his ailing uncle very much at all. We ended up talking to Chris aunt and all the cousins rather than to the main person that we’d gone to visit.
While we at my husbands uncles house my husband couldn’t help peeking at his uncles cigar humidor. My husband doesn’t smoke anymore and his uncle can’t smoke anymore either – but there’s still quite a selection of cigars in that humidor. I guess his sons had better use them!
Tuesday and Wednesday were a blur of driving back and forth to two hospitals and waiting for tests to be done. Then, my mother in law as usual wanted to shop in several health food stores – she just loves a place called The Big Carrot here in Toronto.
I also took her to the Peek Frean outlet Cookie store where she bought pretty much a grocery cart full of cookies for $17! She works in church so I think she can use her bargain find at the church. I smell the cookies being cooked at the Kraft cookie factory almost every night, but I try to stay away from the outlet store. They have amazing deals there but it’s dangerous to go in there because it’s very hard to go in and walk out without buying anything!
How was your week!
