I went in for my eye appointment yesterday. I drove in the night before and my check engine light came on in my truck. I had to get a new thermostat. I went to the eye doctor and my current glasses are twice as strong as they need to be. This is probably why I have jumpy vision and possibly why I get brain fatigue. He wasn’t sure about it’s impact on the other issues but I was so happy to actually have a solution for one of my problems. I went back later in the day for a vision field test as he wanted to see if the meningioma was affecting my peripheral vision. I ordered some new lenses in the frames I had been wearing and put on my emergency pair of glasses I keep in the truck. I wanted to get my PD and it was very difficult to get it out of her but I finally did. I have ordered some prescription sunglasses online. The lenses from them are quite expensive and I don’t think it is fair to expect me to pay the same for sunglasses.
I got home at midnight and got the kids in the house and unloaded the truck. I was so tired that I crawled into bed soon after. My son also had a dental appointment yesterday as a crown had fallen off and because the adult tooth was right underneath on the x-ray and the crown had a hole in it she did an extraction in the end. He said his mouth feels better today than it has in awhile so that is something.
The crazy warm weather is still being crazy but I think it is supposed to get more normal later on in the week. Life is awesome.
I have been fighting off intemittent vertigo for days now and it finally seems to be gone. For now. I am way behind on my spinning but I am not getting too down about it because I think my energy will come back and I will be spinning singles like a mad woman again. I have laundry to fold and am also behind on dishes but that is to be expected too.
However, I sat in my house with my pets and my kids once they were done school and realized just how lucky I am. My family has been great, my boyfriend is amazing, and my friends give me encouragement. I own my home and even with it’s little flaws it is mine. I have shelves of books and a huge closet of wool. I also have all my fibre arts tools. I am really looking forward to gardening and wild plant gathering when the snow is gone.
Life is awesome even when you are off-balance…literally.
I started spinning this Swaledale top this week. I have not finished it and that puts me way behind. The week was CRAZY.
I was voted in as a moderator for the Ravellenics which took some time adjusting because the Olympics is starting soon and things need to be done. It has been a lot of fun.
I went to the ENT and basically there is no way to fix this vertigo but I can go to the dizzy clinic in Vancouver to get some help coping with it. My youngest had a fever when we headed in and then throughout the night so I didn’t get a lot of sleep. I got more last night but right now the vertigo is bad so I am trying not to move my head very much until it settles down. I think the writing is on the wall and I have a disability and I just need to see if it is short-term or long-term.
The weather has been crazy warm for January. I have no clue what is going on but I expect we will get cold again soon.
I am going to do the Fleece to FO event for the Ravellenics competition on Ravelry and complete a pair of mittens during the Olympics. I better get my spinning caught up in the meantime.
