So, I made it home without passing out and Kevin got a ride with some people from lab. They picked me up and we went out to an Indian restaurant about 20 minutes away. It was exciting to be going out for the first time since moving in, and even more thrilling to know that the bill was going to be footed by Dr. Reuda--the lab professor. It was a wonderful meal (not for the faint at heart) and I loved getting to put faces to all the names I hear. We went home 3 hours later and were very full (I was satisfied after eating what I soon found out to be just appetizers. When the actual meal came, I had one bite of each dish that was being passed and I was filled to overflowing--though not literally.)
I've spent this morning doing my wifely duties. i.e. calling all over creation to find jumper cables (no luck yet), trying to find a good deal on a bicycle, and double checking insurance policies.
I think I shall fix myself some lunch and enjoy this cool weather and my cozy sweatshirt (in June!? oh, well, I'm not complaining!)
