While waiting for ben to pick me up from the bus stop last night, I noticed that my calves felt really tight. Painfully tight. I don't know what happened! I was standing there! And it got worse all night. To the point where I wasn't sure I'd make it up the stairs for bed. And all through the night, every time I moved my legs, I'd wake up in pain.
They still hurt this morning too. It was awful on the metro when I discovered the escalators were broken. (Fun fact: Escalators on the metro only work for an average of 8 days before they break again.) I waited until everyone else went up, then I slowly dragged myself up.
Tonight I'm going to take a hot shower and see if that can get the muscles to relax.
Other than that, the evening was calm. Ben replaced two outlets. Without burning down the house! Cause he's awesome. The old homeowners had painted over all the outlets and light switches, so every single one in the house needs to be replaced.
Ben's birthday gift for me arrived in the mail. It's a t-shirt with a picture of two t-rex's sissy-fighting
. We celebrated the shirt by having our own sissy-fight.
I made noname go out in the backyard last night. She was actually very good about it. She ran around sniffing and doing her business until she was done, then she ran back to the door to let me know she wanted back in. It would have been perfect if I didn't have to be standing out there with her.
I made use of the time by star gazing. Our new neighborhood is much darker than our old one. I am proud that I easily found orion last night. And I found the big dipper, which ben pointed out is part of ursa major. When it's warmer out, I will take my telescope out and find EVERYTHING!
