It’s been a crazy week trying to get caught up on my accounts at work, after being away last week. Getting there though!
It was my day off today. I had to go to the States to bring my GoPro camera back. It stopped working during my last flight. Fortunately, I just had to mail them (California) the little camera, and not the battery, housing and accessories. Therefore, it was only $12 to mail (with tracking). Hopefully it won’t take too long to get back.
Jan joined me today, and we decided to hit TOPS for some groceries. I think we spent less than $50, but got a few items that aren’t available here. I also stopped and fueled up Lola Corolla.
As I’ve been a bit down lately (too much going on!) I decided that a little retail therapy might help to pick up my mood. What do most women buy when they’re feeling down? No, not shoes – a vacuum! I’ve had the same Bissell vacuum for about five years now and it works great. One little problem though – for the last couple of weeks, it’s been emitting this high pitched screaming sound. Rather annoying and I’m sure not too appreciated by my apartment neighbours. Since I love to vacuum and do it almost every day, I figured I would splurge and get a really good one. My life is now complete – I have a Dyson vacuum!
I phoned Future Shop to check their prices and was told they had one on clearance, as it’s a discontinued model. Saved over $100, plus they threw in an accessory pack with a bunch of different attachments (valued at $100). When I got it home and took it for a test drive, I was rather disappointed in the suction. Not nearly as good as I thought it would be. I fiddled around with it for a while then noticed there was a part on the bottom that wasn’t attached properly. I snapped the part into place and cranked up the machine again. Holy cow – I put my hand over the hose and was instantly given a massive hickey! The suction is amazing – perhaps a little too good as I am now missing a kitty. Since I vacuum almost every day, I didn’t think I would see too much dirt in the canister. I was shocked to see how much there was. I would like to formally apologize to everyone who has ever been in my apartment, apparently overwhelmed with filth and squalor. It’s clean now!
Since the weather is so nice, I have all of the windows open. Little Pinkster is just chillin’ in the workout room:
Abby found a sunny spot and struck this pose:
I accidentally left the closet door open and somehow Boo managed to climb into a basket I had up on the shelf. It’s pulled out for this picture – I honestly have no idea how she managed to get into it:
Little Mya is keeping my pillow warm:
Today’s symptoms: Still feeling a little weak, probably just too much going on over the last little while. No noticeable MS symptoms today other than just a few sharp pains in my forearms.
