Today we ran a bunch of errands, which thoroughly exhausted me. But we finally bought a queen-sized mattress, which is exciting! So now our Solstice gift to ourselves is complete. We're debating what to do with the two twin beds that currently comprise our "king" bed. It'd be nice if we could sell them to someone, but I'm not sure how sellable they actually are. They're not anything like new, although they are in spectacular shape...definitely not something that should just be tossed. But I really don't want to store two twin mattresses and box springs. Does Goodwill take mattresses? Any suggestions?

We made a totally delicious dinner tonight. A parmesan-cheese risotto, with green beans, and then a salad that was super delicious. It was sprouts and chives, with snow peas, celery, and a pear sliced up into really thin strips, with a sesame-ginger dressing. So freaking good. Yay, vegetables (and fruit)!

To-Do list for tomorrow:

1. call about bed frame delivery (well, their automated phone thing kept cutting out, but I emailed, at least).
2. call gas company about budget plan
3. look at data from weak def study, reply to natalie's email
4. write up course proposal for writing teaching job, start preparing CV/etc (doesn't hurt to be prepared, though Mike has consistently put talking to him about it off until "later")
5. do the finishing for Andrew's sweater

I was thinking of trying to walk to the library tomorrow to get the book they actually do have, but after seeing the sidewalks in our neighborhood today...I have a feeling that would not end well. I've never been great at walking on ice, but my balance is about 100x worse now than it was even a few years ago, so it'd be stupid. I have plenty to read, both for fun and for research purposes, here at home already, anyway.

God, I'm tired. Why am I not in bed?
