So yesterday Spence went off to the volleyball party and then came home until Jacob was back from Magic.  Then it was sleepover time at Jacob's place.

In the meantime, Dave and I got the last bits of electrical supplies we needed for the new entertainment centre and then I did some work and studying and Dave worked on the entertainment centre and a new form for Spencer's masks.

Today, was a flurry of activity already.....the fireplace guy came, we got all that organized, made sure everything would come up to code, organized for the removal of the current fireplace, capping of gas lines and how far the new fireplace would go.  We have had to modify the entertainment centre's design slightly, but overall, what we've done can stay.  New fireplace is in within the next two weeks.

Then Tiffany came over with Frankie (her dog) so that Frankie and Josie could meet - they got along great and Josie even walked Frankie for a bit (Frankie is a mastif cross - not a small dog but gentle as can be) and Tiffany managed to capture some of those moments - so I'm hoping to get a picture of that because it was adorable.

Now back to work/school for me - some chores throughout the day and Dave is continuing to work on the entertainment centre and we'll have to head out to get some paint and groceries later today.

Last day for volleyball today and a big season ending party at one of the coaches homes.  Spence is really looking forward to it.  We have a bit of school to do before volleyball and Dave will drive Spence around, as I still cannot drive.

Another recovery day for me and school for Spence - we only have drums outside the house and he will drive both ways.

Josie met her potential adopter yesterday and she fell in love - so I am hoping our meeting on Saturday goes well.  We meet her current dog and see if the two get along.

So today we'll do a bit of school - reading, printing, math, essay and drums.  I'm skipping everything else as I'm still recovering and cannot drive or go to far from home until I get the all clear.  I apparently have acute vertigo and have to wait till it clears up on its own...in the meantime the doc I saw will get me into the acute vertigo clinic (didn't know we had one).

So today is chores, relax, recoup, school and a bit of work/study for me as that does not require me to move around a lot.

Today Josie's potential forever owner comes to meet her, we were going to meet her at her house, but with me not driving, we changed our plans.  I'm hoping she takes a shine to her and we get her a forever home even before she goes up for adoption officially :)

Today was thrown way off course by me getting sick.  Spence still needed to go to PE, so Dave took the day off and did stuff I was going to do.  I in the meantime, continued to sleep and try and recover.  Kelly came over for a bit to try and help out and then Dave went to work.

Hoping tomorrow I'm better.

Today is a regular school day, work day and study day for both Spence and me.  Karma is off for her pack walk today and I have to get a few supplies from the foster agency.  Dave in the meantime is building the entertainment centre frame today and we're working on a few other prep projects for the new hot water tank and furnace.

This is Josie, our new foster.  She is 5 or 6 weeks old, her mom was in a hit/run accident, 5 of the 6 puppies survived and were weened by a foster mom's dog.  She'll be with us until she's adopted and I can't think she'll be with us for long, given what a cute fluff ball she is :)

She's been sleeping on or under Spence since I brought her home

Karma meeting Josie, Josie gave her a big sloppy kiss 

Currently even Noc is bigger than Josie

Friday night and all day Saturday I did a Pet First Aid course, which was terrific.  Karma participated and was really good with all the strangers handling her as she was one of the dog volunteers who was 'injured' :)

We had a great time, the course was good and at the end I felt I can at least handle the general minor emergencies that come with having Karma in my life.

Spence slept in and then played online before heading out for the night with Jacob - Yumi for supper and then games night at Jacob's house.  I decided to study as I have another 5 days before my final exam.

Dave fixed my power cord for the mac as Priya had eaten through my brand new cord before she left for her forever home and I was loath to spend another $150 on a new cord.

Dave and I had spent time getting supplies for the entertainment centre which we are building into the house and I had some flooring samples I was looking at for the floor swap this year - we picked a great one which I hope will not show as much mud as the medium oak currently does.

Overall it was a good Friday night and Saturday.  Today is a chill day for Spence, Dave and I are heading to the dump to take the old drywall out and waste pipes from the last fix, Dave is working on the entertainment unit, we're hopping off to Home Depot to get a few receptacles I missed for the electrical work that needs to be added to the entertainment centre and I am hopping off to get a few things from the whole foods store and then getting our new foster puppy, whose name is Josie before studying for another few hours and getting a few hours of work in.

Busy Sunday, but it should be good.
