The rec center was definitely a good tip! There is one less than 5 minutes away! The only program they have in the winter is a lap swim from 7 to 9, but that's perfect (as soon as I get a suit). I can dip in, get a little exercise, take a shower, and be at work by 10. Rock on. I actually didn't see a shower facility, but I didn't get all the way back, and if they have a pool, they must have a shower, right?
Damn, I hate being away from a computer for too long. I had all these fabulous posts lined up in my head, and now they are all gone. Oh well.
Saturday was my first day off, and I fully enjoyed it. Headed out to a National Forest a couple hours away for some hiking. Got there, and discovered I really was too lazy to even get out of the car. Plus there were bugs. Real big ones. Wasp-y looking things about the size of my pinky. I'm a wuss. And my DEET exploded in my glove box. Strangely enough, my calamine lotion also exploded. Someone doesn't want me messing with the bugs.
So I got another hotel room (okay, maybe I needed the one last week, but this was just weak), and sat and knitted and watched TV and embroidered. I love french knots. I am almost done with a matching set of black hand towels with cherries in french knots in the corner. AND I'm almost done with my Paton's Katrina tank top; only the arm shaping on the front, and the straps left! I love finishing things! I'm full of love today, did you notice? For everything except the bugs.
I fell asleep last night fantasizing about Gambit, and had the greatest X-men dream ever. It sort of morphed into a strange one, where I and 3 midgets were being sent to the moon, but we never took off because we
couldn't get our rockets packed right. I was shoving a jacket into my cowboy boots to make space when I woke up.
I keep forgetting what I have to do on my days off. So here's my laundry list, lucky you. Stop reading now, unless you want a case of terminal boredom.
-check out PO boxes
-trade in books
-needles from LYS
You'd think with a list that short, I could remember parts of it. Well, now that I've written it down I will. Thanks for bearing with me in boredom.
