Oh My Eye!

Thanks for all the responses to my Mac post yesterday. I knew you ladies would come through for me!

My main news at the moment is that something is wrong with my left eye. It's only that way when I wear contacts, so I thought maybe changing my contact would work. It did for a few days and now my eye is as bad as ever. I'm stuck wearing my glasses until I get in to see the optometrist, which I'm hoping is soon.

I think Sean and I are planning a trip to Slovenia soon. More specifically, the Lake Bled area. I've heard the area is beautiful and I'm really excited to go. I've even found a pet-friendly hotel for Boomer. Can I just say though that the European hotels are so much better about pets then American hotels? For starters a European hotel generally only charges from 5 to 10 euro for a dog staying the night. American hotels often charge $50 to $100 and a ridiculous pet deposit. I do wish America would catch on like the Europeans have.

Sean and I were all set to go eat at an Ethiopian restaurant in town tonight and when I called to make reservations I was informed the Ethiopian restaurant was now an Italian restaurant. I was so disappointed. I mean, don't get me wrong, I like Italian food, but after being here for 9 months I like to be able to eat something else. You know? Ah...such is life!

Slovenia? That sounds fun and different. Hope the contacts thing works out. That happened to me once, and the eye doctor wasn't the greatest. "Oh, you probably just scratched your eye, it'll heal." Great, thanks. Some time in glasses and I was back to normal.

There is a fabulous little pastry shop in Bled affectionately known as the Brown Bear. Make sure you get some yummy Bled Cake!
