Today, the kittens are off to an adoption event with me - hoping that someone falls in love with them and decides to take them home.

Spence arrived home just after midnight last night - tired, but happy to be home.  We chatted for a bit, then I went off to bed and he went off to chat with his buddies online.

Today is a day off from school as he wasn't supposed to be home yet - so he'll get to sleep in and chill.  I've got the gas guys coming to fix the fan on the new fireplace and then I'm picking Ellie up for the weekend as her foster mum is off to a spay & neuter clinic north of the city for the weekend.

Got a text from Spence today - they were heading home from Comox and were going to see where they landed tonight.  At 5pm, they had hit Kamloops and the roads were good, so they were going to keep driving for a bit.
Today is vertigo clinic day - have to be there by 8:30 and they told me to book at least half a day - so hoping it goes well.

Turns out I have a long named issue - I can't remember what it is but essentially it's the crystals in my ear no longer move with my body and that causes the world to spin.  Once they diagnosed that (which was cool - I had these glasses on that blacked everything out but the computer tracked my eye movement - which tells them what is going on with my ears), they gave me some exercises to do at home and sent me to the physio in the clinic.

I spent over an hour being quickly brought down to the bed, turned, sat up quickly and essentially repeatedly making me nauseous....but by the time they were done, I was much less dizzy when they dropped me to the bed or got me up without warning quickly....more light headed than dizzy when they were done.

I drove home and felt exhausted - so I went and napped per doctors recommendation.  She had said that I would require lots of naps so that my body can recover and not to over exert myself - no exercise, no long walks, no extensive trips outside the house - if I go to work all day, take a long nap when I get home before I continue with my night or I'll get worse again.

So if all goes well I should be 100% again by July!

Busy few days - Monday was inspection day again and this time we passed - so I put up the kitty guards (plywood around the fireplace) and we're good now until the end of the month when Dave comes out to help me finish the work on the entertainment centre.

I've been at work the past few days and did some spring cleaning in the living room and dining room - both have been purged of a number of items.  Now onto the kitchen for the rest of the week.

I was craving chinese last night, so made ginger chicken, mushroom fried rice and some sesame balls for dessert - now I'm done with the craving but have tones of left overs.....off to the freezer they go.

Today, Spence heads off for a weeks vacation with his dad....they are off to the coast to visit with grama & grampa and on the way they plan to skateboard at various skateparks.  I hope they have a fantastic time.

Really mom? do you always have to take pictures?  :)


While Spence is away, I am hoping to get some of my construction to do list done, a bunch of work done and also to do some spring purging - started yesterday, but it's slow go when you like to keep everything :)
