V is for . . .

Vertigo, which has left me in bed the last 1 1/2 days. This is something I have experienced before, and have been told is due to an inner ear infection. A . . .

Viral infection at that, so there is nothing to do but wait it out. The last time it lasted about 4 days. If I move around to much, I become very nauseous. If I lay on my right side, the room just spins, and spins, and spins. If I keep my head very still, I am ok. Until I get up again. It is incredibly . . .

Vexing. There are so many other things I would like to be doing. Gardening, working on my research, working on my classes for next semester, exercising, . . . you get the idea. This is also going to prevent us going to Steve's family reunion this weekend. However, I am getting a lot of moving watching in. So far I have watched: "From Russia with Love", "Marnie", "To Catch a Thief", and "The

Village". My other main activity, besides staring at the wall, has been reading blogs on the internet. I can't do much typing (too much turning my head), or internet research (again, the need to turn my head to write things down), but I can read blogs pretty easily.

I hope finish blogging about the West Virginia trip soon.
