shocking

The day started in the usual way, especially the part about the sun coming up – very glad about that. The partaking of b’fast and scripture happened as per usual, with the same usual elements involved. The Spice and I had an appointment with the same heart doc and this was where the variance from the norm began. The main part of the unusualness was that this was our first time to see this doc.

The cause of the new doc was the fact that our other heart doc suddenly quit his practice and dropped out of sight without giving anyone any notice. There were other circumstances but nobody knows exactly why this happened – but the end result was that we had to get a new doc.

As soon as we went into the office, checked in and sat down, most everyone seemed to be looking in our direction. Was it because we looked very much in love? Possibly. Or was it because we were very fashionably dressed? No – I had on casual slacks and a t-shirt. The only other thing I could think of was that the TV, giving forth news, was mounted on the wall just above our heads. Maybe.

This was an initial get acquainted/check-up visit and all things came out OK. He seemed to be a very personable and thorough physician that came to us highly recommended. We departed there and headed to grab some take-out lunch because the Spice had to shortly go to pick-up GM-1 from school and take the both of them to the back-cracker for an appointment.

When that appointment was finished, we met over at YD’s place for hot dogs and to celebrate the birthday of GM3 – he is 6 years old today. It doesn’t seem possible that he will be graduating from K5 in a couple of weeks and will go into 1st grade next year. Of course tomorrow is GM1’s birthday and she turns 15 – that is a shocker as well. Even when life is shocking, God is good, all the time. ec
