I got the last shot of the HPV/cervical cancer vaccine yesterday. Accordingly, my left arm is now complaining verbosely at anything I ask it to do. The rest of me feels run-down and woozy; whether that's a side effect of the shot, the rapid temperature changes outside, or another job-related stress cold, I don't know.

If it is the latter, the good part about this whole job mess is I will no longer feel any guilt about taking a couple of days' sick time. (I'm trying not to post too much about said mess here in public. For what it's worth, if you want to know what's going on, just email me.)

Dan's parents were in town last week and were instrumental in getting part of a kitchen wall (not the demon green one, the other one) taken out so that we can use our refrigerator effectively. We've also got a new french door in place of the old aluminum sliding one, and it looks fantastic.

It also insulates the house so much better that we're having difficulties regulating the heat again; the mean temperature's gone up by at least 5 degrees. Combine that with the recent 70-80* weather outside, and inside is just stifling.

Speaking of weather, if this keeps up, I'm going to have to start my vegetable seedlings pretty soon. The garden is still a mess from last fall, and needs a rather severe beating cleaning as well as at least a couple more bags of soil and peat moss. I'll get around to it; this sort of thing starts slowly.

Finished my diamond socks! Forgive the right toe in the picture: it was pre-weaving in ends and blocking. It's better now, I promise ;-)
