almost there ...

Gracie is already asleep on the bed behind me so I'll keep this brief. Besides, I have to be awake really early tomorrow.

I've been busy running around with pre-trip errands - getting my car cleaned, doing laundry not-at-home because our dryer crapped out and, coincidentally, the washer got stuck in the closed position at the same time. I didn't realize how much I loved having a washer/dryer till I had to make a 25-mile roundtrip to wash a single load at my aunt's.

Believe it or not, I've been knitting too. No pictures for now, but my mom's first sock is about three inches long. I even took it to the car wash today while my car was washed and vacuumed and made shiny and spotless inside for all of $12 (not counting tip). I love this place, it plays R&B music from the late 80s-early 90s (lots of George Benson) and all the guys argue about football and they sell orange and grape soda (well, today that's all they had so I passed on a drink).

Even more of a surprise (to myself) I've been walking/running steadily lately. I was afraid I'd neglect it in light of all my errands but no, I've been really excited to go. On Sunday, Josh and I took a long walk around Ghent before going to lunch at No Frills. I had to be at work for an early (2:00ish) shift so the fact that we did that was pretty impressive. Yesterday I got up super early and ran/walked by 9 a.m. Amazing! Tomorrow will be another day like that because I have an 11:00 appointment to make.

Lest you think I've made an impressive life change, I've also been subsisting mostly on fruit snacks and edamame because I don't want to grocery shop before my trip but hey ... at least the edamame is healthy.

This will probably be my last post before my voyage to D.C. to see the Yarn Harlot and my trip to Charleston. Bye for a little. =)
