It's May in Calgary :)

We're pretty much relaxing today.  I have to rebuild the frame for the fireplace and run a few errands, and Spence is still fighting the cold he has, so he's resting.  Not much else going on.

So we didn't pass inspection - we need a CO2 detector (never mentioned by the gas folks) and the height of the frame is too short.  We had confirmed the dimensions of the frame with the fireplace folks at least 10 times with pictures even and they always said it would pass inspection....not happy.  Gave them a bad rating for knowing about the product, but they did a good job with the actual install and I do love the fireplace I picked.  I wouldn't recommend them though because they didn't get the whole concept of framing around the fireplace.

Spence was sick all day yesterday, so I'm keeping him in bed again today so that he is good for his trip with his dad.

Ellie goes home today to her foster mom, we'll miss her but it'll also be nice to be back down to one dog and 3 cats :)  The kittens go up for adoption next Saturday and hopefully they will be adopted out as fast as the puppies have been.

Well Spence has been sick for a few days again, new cold I think.  Sore throat, not wanting to eat, headache, so I told him to rest as I want him healthy for his trip with James next week.

The fireplace got installed yesterday - what a difference.  I love the location of the fireplace and it is a lot bigger.

Today is inspection day - sometime between 8am and 4:30pm...so I'm working from home.

Pups are in daycare, kittens are exploring while I get ready for work and Spence is sleeping in a bit and then he's starting school today - planning out his last year of highschool.  We'll review once I get home and then put together an action plan and start on Wednesday.

Last day of vacation for Spence - we start in on Grade 12 tomorrow...not sure what that will look like yet, but we'll figure out our plan over the next few days and figure out when the exams are and then go from there.

As for me, I'm off to my clients today and then home to get some work done.

So we are currently pet sitting an injured foster dog - she's great and her name is Ellie, we also picked up two kittens who are about 6 months old and we will foster them for a little bit.  

Had a friend's kids over yesterday and they were inundated with licks, snuggles and playing fetch.

This is Riker, just a sweetie pie

Noc, Ellie and Karma waiting to meet the kittens.  Ellie is a blue heeler/beagle mix and adorable

This is Riley - the adventurous kitten

This is what the dog's day consists of - cleaning, tickling and playing with Noc
