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?

I stumbled onto your comment to Rosidee today. Your LJ name made me immediately curious.

I am a Rochester, NY native who has been living in Germany for 10 years, now in Nuremberg. My father is a UR Alum. Do you know Pat Herminghouse.

My LJ alter ego is "welten."

Hi! No, I don't know Pat Herminghouse...I know shockingly few people here outside of my department, actually.

I hadn't realized I'd left one of my posts public (I'm a friends-only poster), but I guess it's convenient that I did. Nice to meet you!

It would have been quite a coincidence if you did know Pat Herminghouse ( http://www.rochester.edu/news/show.php?id=1529 ).

Anyhow, since I just appeared out of nowhere, perhaps a little explanation about my existance on Live Journal is in order. I created "bih_friend" to write about my thouts and experiences in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The entries try to be strictly topical, but I am rather liberal about adding friends. I friend anyone there who strikes my interest. Since I have been rather mute on the subject on BiH for quite some time, I created the account "welten." Welten is not subject specific, but tends to reflect on my life here, politics, pictures ambitions and anthing else that I care to write about. The majority of entries are public ... but I have a very restrictive friending policy. Here is a recent public entry with pictures of where I live: http://welten.livejournal.com/23133.html
