Vincent is not happy with the current surroundings, since he's FROM here you would think he'd be acclimated and all of that, but no, he is not. Do you like his crabby face? He went out for about 17 seconds and then I made him sit there for an additional 6 so I could take his picture - some days it's a good thing he doesn't speak english. One of the bright spots today is I found an asian market - they have bodegas here but no asian places, or so I thought. I just caught the sign as I was going down South Main and I had a little time. It's hilarious how they're all the same where ever I go - fish in buckets, suspicious refrigeration, things piled and bare bones decorating - but the prices were good and I found everything I missed so much - whoo hoo. And the owner happily pointed out everything I needed - they had taro root, baby bok choy, the works.
I'm of course still working on my sweater, I have about 10 more rows and the back is done. It seems to be taking a long time but it's a lot of cabling - I enjoy it so I'm not complaining. I'm still exercising, I'm a pound off what I'm supposed to weigh, ten off what I'd like to weigh. Since I didn't gain it in a week I suppose I won't lose it in a week and I'm trying not to weigh myself more than 2 or 3 times a week. I find when I weigh myself I either get discouraged if I gain even a pound and if I lose I think I can eat what I want which leads to being discouraged. I have to work a little again tomorrow - the nurse oncall is swamped so I volunteered to do my own patient. I'm not crazy about doing it but if you don't help out, you don't get helped.
I have to run out to my car and get some paperwork, eeww - I parked near the road so I won't have to dig that far. Our driveway here is pretty small compared to WV, there's a benefit. David is busy tiling the kitchen floor and will be doing near the front door, the carpet stays until Summer I think. It's obnoxious, but not hurting anything. But I'm glad to say good bye to the carpet in the kitchen - it was astro-turf green and stained all over with pulled threads just to give it that je nois se quoi effect - it certainly set off the banged up oven. Sigh. Pearl is whining to go out again, I swear she's part husky - we go out and she eats the snow, rolls in it, snuffles it, and you have to make her come back in.
