Today was my compressed day off. Jan came up to the apartment this morning and offered to help me clean my windows. I felt bad that I couldn’t do them all, but I was so weak this morning – I’m not sure why. I figured after my big meal last night, I would wake up feeling strong and sassy! My friend from work and I went to the new restaurant downtown called Gord’s Place. Great food – I had the pulled pork sandwich with sweet potato fries:
Yum-o. My friend didn’t believe me when I said I was going to clear my plate, but I did. I only had some oatmeal around 10:00 that morning, then did an aerobatic flight in the early afternoon. Thought I would save lots o’room for my dinner noms, and I’m sure glad I did. Great food and I’ll definitely go back. Speaking of the flight that day, I flew over the Wise Guys golf tournament again this year.
I was told everyone really enjoyed the show, performed by Vyctor.
I passed this neat little design on the way back to the airport:
Back at the airport, I noticed these little yellow finchy/oriole type dudes in a puddle under a plane:
Ok, back to today. Jan and I went over to the PEN Centre after doing my living room windows. We of course stopped at Timmy’s for our usual coffee and bagel/muffin. I was on the hunt for a few more skirts while Jan was looking for summer shoes. Hello, you would think she would have started the search a couple months ago when the weather started getting hot. Oh well, better late than never. I ended up buying one soon into our search. We then decided to go into a store I normally never go into. I don’t know why, since I do not have any chemical sensitivities that I’m aware of, but walking into this store almost kills me. Within a minute of being in it, my nose and eyes start watering, I get a headache and I get a little wheezy. Weird, eh? I tried holding my breath, while quickly running from rack to rack. Unfortunately, I did find a skirt I wanted to try on. Things were watering at this point and the garcon in the change room was looking at me a little funny. As soon as I tried it on and decided that I would buy it, I ran out of the change room, threw the skirt at Jan and ran out of the store. She rang it through and was laughing at me while I was standing out in the hall. I feel bad that I was able to find what I was looking for, but Jan didn’t find any shoes.
Once we left the PEN, I dropped my folding bike up off at the bike shop where I had the tire repaired last month. Something seems to have gone amiss, because the tire went flat again the day after it was fixed (and I didn’t even ride it). So, the bike shop folks told me to bring it back and they would fix it again for no cost. Great service, eh?
Back home, I just chilled for the rest of the afternoon. I think everything I’ve been doing for the last couple weeks has really taken a bit of a toll on my wussy body. Just one more flight to do tomorrow, then the Flying Club event on Saturday (Saturday – see, I got it right this time!), and that’s it for my plans. I think I’m going to tone down the flying a bit next week, since it’s doing a number on my physically and financially.
While chillin’ on my couch today, I started drooling as the smell of BBQ came wafting into my apartment. Oh, it smelled so good. Turns out they were having an event at Community Care next door. I was going to put on a red shirt and run down there for some noms, but was too tired:
While I was craving BBQ, Mya and Pinky decided that they were craving water. Of course, they can’t drink out of the nice, new fountain I just bought them. Instead, I had to turn on the faucet in the bathroom. Dorks:
Little did they know, they would be in the kitchen sink soon. Well, at least three of them. Abby, Boo and Pinky were all due for a bath (Mya doesn’t seem to get as oily). Abby was up first and only gave a couple little whimpers. Here she is looking like a purrito while getting dried off:
The other two kitties weren’t quite as pleasant. As usual, Pinky growled through the whole experience and Boo screamed like she was being murdered. At least they don’t hold a grudge.
Today’s symptoms: Very weak, especially when I first got up. It got a little better during the day. Still having a bit of that MS hug symptom. Other than that, just the normal headache and a few aches and pains here and there.
