November 5th

Barrack Obama is now the President elect of the United States. We received a text message from Nell at 7AM telling us the news. She and Dylan stayed up all night to watch the results. IN actually voted Democrat, which is huge.

We are getting settled into our apartment. Oreo had a rough night, but we were able to get some sleep in our new bed. It was SO nice not sleeping on a sofa bed!

Went to the store to get a few groceries. I did laundry. The washing machine is so strange. It takes a long time to wash a load. Then we have to hang our laundry outside the balcony to dry. I got a little dizzy as I was hanging the laundry. Something about looking straight down and thinking about dropping things really bothered me.

The sun finally came out today. We went to the organic market at the Cours Julien. We bought some eggs, lavender honey, butternut squash, and some quince. We stopped by an Alsace store that consisted of sausage and gingerbread. We bought a sausage to go with some onions and baby potatoes that we found at a little fruit & veggie stand. Chris cooked up lunch and it was very good. He really missed his calling as a chef.

We are now watching TV...some nature documentary on fleas and ticks. It's absolutely disgusting!!!
