I think this is a record for me – I’ve never gone this long without writing a blog. What can I say – it’s been a totally event-less week. Actually, I’ve been feeling really lousy lately. I’ve got a triple whammy working on me with regards to fatigue. As usual, there’s the MS. Plus, my bladder is completely out of control and I can’t retain fluids at all – this is leading to dehydration which has been causing tiredness and fatigue (yes, two very different things). Then I have my hormones which are also out of whack, causing me to get my “thing” about three times a month, which always causes some of the worst tiredness I’ve ever experienced during the first couple days. Ugh. I’m on a new med for the last issue and hoping it will kick in within the next few weeks, dropping my fatigue and tired-causing issues from three to two. Paws crossed!
I felt better today than I’ve felt in a while. I picked up my plane from my aviation mechanic’s property a couple days ago. Had two new cylinders installed, plus my annual inspection. It was so good to go flying again. I went for an hour long flight today. It was the Niagara Grape and Wine Parade, so I flew over and snapped some pics:
I flew back over before noon, and there was a Cessna 172 flying over downtown pulling a banner:
Headed over my mechanic’s property and did a low and over. I have to fly 10 hours without doing aerobatics and at a fairly high power, in order to break in my two new cylinders. It was hard to find his property doing 746 MPH, but I managed to find it:
Within seconds, I was over my mother’s house in the next town over. Thought I would check out her freshly painted siding and the empty space where the rusted ol’ TV antenna used to be:
A few seconds later, while doing mach 4, I was cruising over Howell’s Pumpkin farm: Here is the cheater for their corn maze:
Don’t forget to grab a few pumpkins once you find your way out:
Flew over Bissell’s Hideaway, which has an acre-sized pool. Clearly drained for the winter:
I have another flight planned for tomorrow. I’m supposed to take up a friend of a co-worker at my office. We have the time planned for 10:30, but it looks like it may be raining in the morning. Hopefully it will clear up by the afternoon. If not, I guess I’ll be stuck at home with my four little freaks. Little Mya has been quite the bully lately. Boo decided to use the cat bed to sleep in during the day. No one has used it for over a year. Well, Mya would have none of another cat using something that she could potentially use:
As you can see, she was accommodating at first, allowing Boo to stay curled up and sleeping, while Mya hovered over the heat register above. Then she decided that she deserved to be in the bed too:
It was then that Mya decided that she was deserving to be in the bed by herself. One bite on Boo’s bum lead to a quick evacuation:
What a bully. Similar thing happened the next day too:
I was at Jan’s last weekend. We went into Zellers and couldn’t believe they had their Christmas stuff out on display. Hello, it’s only September!
We also went to Tim Horton’s and split another Smiley cookie. I think the charity here is toward something to do with a children’s medical thing. Not a bad deal – eat a yumola cookie and make a donation toward charity:
A tad deformed, but totally delicious.
Once back at Jan’s house, we noticed this horrible, massive spider crawling on the outside of her house:
Talk about going from yumalo to yuckola. Ugh!
Today’s symptoms: The best I’ve felt in over a week. Finally some energy. Started getting a symptom I haven’t had since I was in university back from 1996 – 2000. While walking home from work over the last week, I’ve been getting horrific spasms in my legs which cause me to stop dead in my tracks. Hopefully it’s just a fluke thing that will pass very soon.
