First birthday celebration in new town was this weekend. I had some new friends over to watch a basketball game in the afternoon and then my neighbor dropped by with a gift which we promptly drank and got silly drunk. I had to walk her home (3 houses away); I was afraid she would walk into the wrong house. In the evening I went to dinner with Dr. Dice and her husband and another couple. I had yummy lobster tails and creme brulee for dessert. Mmmm!
Today I have stayed at home all day--finished up some grading, cleaned floors, and did laundry. This is the beginning of the last week of classes----tons of grading, but my first semester in new job is defnitely winding down.
