70. Ryan & Kat - don't look.

I get home from work the other night at about 130am and I look over to my little poop and see a huge booger in his eye so I immediately go to the cupboard for eye wipes and rush over him to get this gnarly thing out of my cute's little eye. He yelp's I wonder why and go for his eye again and realize it is covered in a layer of goopy puss! Quite gross but, considering this is the first dog I've owned in my adult life I was of course, near a mild panic attack. I hot compressed and hoped for the best in the morning. Of course it got worse and come morning, little guy could barely open his eye. So, here I am - supposed to be going to the Chelsea Hotel to work on a photo project with my friend Michael, panicking and calling every vet in NYC. I get an appointment - go to the Chelsea, get started then rush to the vet.

134$ later - I end up buying some drops for his eyes that cost only 10$ of the 134$ and he is cured (or soon to be cured). This is on day 3 of the eye drops.

I think my green thumb is becoming more green. I bought this plant nearly a month ago and it's coming along nicely and growing some new stems. I'm excited about it. It will look nice in my new apartment... (thats all I'm going to say about that for now)

One day last week while wandering around New York incredibly hungover, I sumbled upon my new found Oasis that is called the Point. I ask some questions, I oogle some beautiful yarn, I sit and knit for a couple of hours and make a purchase (that was highly inspired by the beautiful shawl recently knit by the manager Alyssa) which will now be turning into Swallowtail Shawl. I was so sad last night to recieve and email from the Point saying they were closing their doors - I will be visiting in the next 3 days to pick up some new yarns at 30% off and sadly I will most likely sit and knit in a pool of self pity for not taking advantage or finding this place sooner than I did.

I needed to work on something more challenging than what I've been knitting lately. My friends all seem to have been bit my this baby fever so I've been kicking out baby blankets galore. I'm on the 2nd this month, a little more than half way through and I was getting to the point where I could probably knit this blanket in my sleep.

A couple of appointments to check out some apartments today, I found one that I'm in love with but the owner/broker has yet to call me back. In the mean time I will go and look at a few others.

Happy monday.
Its beautiful outside.

Poor boogery baby, I hope he's all better. Swallowtail is looking great and I love the simple graphics of the blankie. Thanks for mentioning the Point, I'll check it out the next time I'm down.
