Today was a big day. We waited until she was happily goofing with her roommates and then said, “Ok, I guess we’ll go now.” Because she was happy and distracted she didn’t get upset and neither did I, so that was good. I still can’t believe we aren’t going to see her tomorrow before we leave.
Everything there is great. It is an amazing place. The first thing we saw when we pulled in were two guys walking goats, so you can imagine Sylvia’s euphoria. Her roommates seem cool. One is from Australia. One from Seattle and one from Pennsylvania.

Yesterday we went to a new gourmet Popsicle place. It was amazing. I had strawberry herb lemonade and Sylvia had pineapple lemongrass. Aaron had a lemon ice cream cookie sandwich. I amused Aaron and Sylvia by sitting in a tiny chair.
My eye has been hurting like a sob for a couple days. Turns out I had an eyelash in a weird place jabbing my eye every time I moved my eyelid. The doctor said it was only the second time in 20 years that he’s seen it. And then he used tweezers to get it out.
I feel better now. Have a gross picture of my irritated eyeball.
Today in a list of things I didn’t enjoy, but I did because I’m a grown up:
- Had my entire body looked at with a flashlight and a magnifying glass
- Had a mole scraped off my ass to biopsy
- Spoke on the phone with my mechanic
- Spent nearly $2000 at my mechanic
- Went to a sketchy looking tire place because Aaron assured me they were very nice
- Paid nearly $400 at said tire place (they were nice, it was fine, just out of my comfort zone)
On the plus side, I took care of myself and our car is ready to travel 1200+ miles in the next week and a half.
On the con side, that’s a lot of money and I feel like I need to nap for 1000 years.
Time for a haircut. This is a great before, right?
My hair’s long enough to do this thing.
We spent most of the day cleaning and making cakes. Now we rest.
But I do like the feeling of taking a shower afterward and feeling pleasantly exhausted while laying in bed drinking wine.
It’s possible my body is about to literally burst into flames.
We’ve got her guys! We’ve got her. I did a crazy adventure trail at ausable chasm that really tested my fear of heights! Also, Sylvia hasn’t stopped talking.
Mithril is feeling me up.
