The weather was nice last weekend so we flew to Brantford for brekkie. I met up with a friend from Exeter there. Mike took this pic:
The wind was blowing and exposed my big egg forehead, so I drew a Santa hat on the pic.
We had a really nice breakfast before heading back to St. Catharines. The flight back was much quicker as we had a tail wind.
Yesterday we went to the Pet Show in Mississauga. We arrived just as they opened at 10:00. The lineup was insane, but went fairly quick. We first checked out some lizards, snakes, spiders, and this cutie:
There were gourmet (fancy) chickens:
A couple of pups that apparently just got hitched:
We also watched the aqua dogs show where they jumped off a ramp into a large pool. Some of them went almost 20′.
This little fella wasn’t quite so gracious:
It was a good few hours we spent there. I was having a bit of an issue walking for so long because I’m still experiencing spasms and increasing stiffness in my left leg. After walking around for about an hour, it was causing quite a bit of pain in my leg and lower back. I think I was a little limpy by the end. During the drive back, I had another ocular migraine. This is my third one in two months. I went to my eye doctor the day after my second one and that’s when I was told exactly what it was. I’m a little bothered that I’ve had three so close together. I don’t like the worsening (over the last week, although it started a few months ago) stiffness and pain in my left side. During my neurologist visit in January, he said the stiffness was noticeable to him during his examination and paired with the new lesion on the MRI, assumed I was having an MS flare up. I didn’t take him up on his offer of trying a medication for it because I assumed it wasn’t going to last long. I’ll be giving him a jingle on Monday to see if I can get an appointment. Sigh.
On the way home, we stopped at the Marble Slab Creamery for some ice cream. I had raspberry cheesecake frozen yogurt and Mike had this chocolatey dream:
Once home, I told my little goobers about our adventures with all the other pets. Zim was thrilled:
Pinky didn’t care to hear about the details but was interested in Zim, who booped her on the nose:
Boo didn’t care much either. She sat there patiently while I stuck paper reinforcements to her head. It made her look like she was getting a brain scan.
That evening I attempted to watch TV, but Mya decided that it wasn’t going to happen:
Today’s symptoms: I was dragging quite a bit this morning but went to see my little mother for a bit. We hit Timmies, Food Basics, then back home where I vacuumed my car. I got home around 1:00 and was in bed for a few hours afterwards. I really feel lousy (lots of pain and fatigue). Have been vegging on the couch since then. Hopefully I feel better than this tomorrow. Geesh!
