Less Spinning and More Working Around the House

Lion and I snoozed quite a bit yesterday afternoon. I wasn’t feeling bad, but I wasn’t feeling great either. My head still feels like cotton, and I can feel the dizziness lurking in the background waiting for me to move a certain way to set it off. This morning, the dog woke me up by woofing beside me and then crashing down with her feet on top of me. Lion was already up and apparently, she wanted me up too.

I don’t want to do too much at once in case I wipe myself out or the dizziness returns. In short bursts, I moved the spanking bench to its new home, I vacuumed a few areas that the robot vacuums always miss, I disconnected the switch that controlled which computer my monitors showed, and I moved one of the robot vacuums to a lower traffic area. I also updated my resume to tailor it to one specific potential employer. I hope to hear back from them soon. I contacted the outplacement service my former employer is paying for. I should hear from them by next week. I’ll continue looking for other jobs in the meantime.

If everything holds, I may be able to snuggle with Lion tonight. Even if I can’t actually curl up next to him, I hope I can move closer so we can touch more than just holding hands. My goal, aside from giving him attention, is to get rid of this stupid vertigo so we can really get back to normal. Being close to each other is the first baby step in that direction.

Lion reminded me about punishment day this morning, like a good boy. As I was disconnecting things on my desk, I happened upon the controller to his shock collar. I buzzed it. Nothing. I tried again. Nothing. I zapped it. Nothing. So far, I haven’t made it a rule for him to wear it. He’s been doing it on his own. As far as I know, this is the first day in a while he hasn’t worn it. Perhaps he is wearing it, but it’s not turned on. I’m still toying with the idea of making it a rule. I know he was having trouble with it slipping off. Maybe he hasn’t figured it out yet. We’ll have to discuss it before I decide.
