It's been quiet this past week. My knee is pretty much back to normal; there were a few days in which a different part of my leg was in pretty bad pain, but except for some remnants of stiffness I'm much better.
I was the victim of a hit-and-run a few days ago; a neighbor brought it to my attention. (With my knee hurting I wasn't driving anywhere for just over a week.) It doesn't look too serious: The left taillight is broken (not the bulbs; just the plastic), and there's a dent. It looks as though someone backed into my car, but of course there was no note, nor do I know when all this activity happened. I live on a quiet street and I can't quite imagine how someone backed into my car, although where I normally park my car is on the other side of the street from a driveway. I'll have to wait for a few days to take it to the body shop; Chris and I tried to take it to a body shop that was recommended by a mechanic one of Chris' friends trusts, but they were closed. With all the driving I'll be doing between home and Stony Brook Univ. this semester we decided to give my car a tune-up and oil change (I also needed two new tires), so perhaps I can get to that body shop by the end of the week.
No word from bride-to-be Maria for a few days. I've been perusing a lot of bridesmaids dresses, and finally found and bought a dress in hunter green, and ordered it, so it should be here in a couple of days. I still may need to buy a pair of shoes, but I do have two pairs that might go well.
Last night Chris and I went to Peter Luger Steakhouse, which I haven't been to in years. So amazingly yummy - medium well; and we ordered sides of broccoli, onion rings, and German friend potatoes.
The semester officially started yesterday, although I'm only taking one class - that blasted math class - and the class meets Tuesdays and Thursdays (with the recitation on Wednesdays).
