Plans change. Sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worst. It’s a gorgeous day out, but I traded all my outdoor activities in for a afternoon pampering Mr. Grumples. I’m keeping him under watch, so I decided to catch up on the Fosters and blog while Nick golfs. To be honest, I didn’t want to golf today anyways.
I figured a little catch up blog and printing shipping labels would keep my mind off of worrying about Grumples.
This week has been pretty eventful. Wednesday, a friend and I went to Nick’s game for a couple of innings and then stopped at Nan & Byrons for dinner. I had the Greek salad and their Brazin wine! The Greek salad had warm pita slices, tzaztiki sauce, vinaigrette, feta, and grilled chicken.
Nan & Byrons is one of my favorite restaurants in Charlotte. We got there a lot after the Hornets games in the winter.
I was struggling on Saturday morning. Tino woke me up at six and I only had four hours of sleep. My body was awake, but eyes were glued shut.
I took Grumples on an hour walk early morning while it was still cool. He doesn’t do well in temperatures over 80 because of all his fur. Tino is the opposite and chooses to sunbath rather than sit in the shade.
Tino and I went to Nick’s game Saturday morning for a couple hours. I was still half asleep on the bleachers. At least I was there…
We had dinner plans at 6pm at Akahaha in Baxter Village in Fort Mill. I’ve heard a lot about this place, but never had the chance to try it. I felt bad for our waitress because she was all alone with a table of twenty! Their menu was GIANT. They had so much and it made it hard to decide what to get.
I started out with the house salad with ginger dressing.
Nick and I split the lettuce wraps for an appetizer. These were to die for! They had minced chicken, water chestnuts, green and red bell pepper. They come with mushrooms, but I asked for them to leave them out. I loved how thick the water chestnuts were!
We ordered a tray of sushi rolls. Our main rolls were the bagel roll which was sinfully delicious and the Charlotte roll! I recommend both!
Lindsey made cupcakes for Josh’s birthday. I think she should quit her job and start a cupcake shop. I’ve never had a better cupcake! They were super moist and so so so flavorful! This is the second time I’ve had one of her cupcakes, and they just keep getting better!
After dinner, we headed back to Nick’s. We stopped and grabbed coffee first! I needed something to keep me awake for True Detective.
We spent an hour walking the pups and letting them run around with the rope. They do this for hours!
The coffee didn’t work.
I fell asleep as soon as the show came on. I woke up really early and went on a cleaning rampage. I love cleaning in the mornings. After mopping the floors, I went out on the patio to have my coffee and slice of toast. I wanted the floors to dry before the dogs went crazy on them. I just LOVE when puppy paw prints dry with the floors.
My toast was whole grain with a drizzle of honey and a tsp of unsalted butter.
When Nick woke up, we drove over to the fields to let the dogs run! They have so much fun chasing the balls around.
We went to lunch at noon down the road at Bakersfield in Dilworth. I loved their fresh salad last time, so played it safe and ordered the same thing. They have AWESOME guacamole too!
After running a couple errands, we headed back to the house. It was strange…Tino did his normal jumping around. Grumples loves to greet and hop around as well when we come home. He just sat there…his tail was wagging, he’d stand up and then fall back down. I knew immediately something was wrong.
He can’t walk on his back leg. He’s eating, drinking, acting fine, but just can’t walk. I’ve examined him, touched him all over, and no yelp…
I put him in the car to go to the emergency vet and when he got out…he was walking fine, only a little limp, but it was as if he was perfectly normal. We walked him about a half a mile and he was doing fine. I figured I’d wait until tomorrow and take him to his actual vet since he’s ok other than the leg. I’m still watching him and worried about him because I can’t STAND when he’s hurt. He’s not whimpering or acting weird other than the fact that he’s limping. I’m not sure if he hurt himself at the park or took a fall while we were out. I’m hoping to get answers tomorrow and keep watching him all night.
Any vets know what it could be?!
