We’re living with my parents while our house is renovated, in about 1/4 the space we’re used to, with an almost 3-year-old and a 4-month-old baby. The construction loan process has been going on for months and still isn’t finalized and I am awash in seas of paperwork, as is the way with these things. In the meantime, we’re funneling money out of our savings account to pay for the work, since we don’t want to be displaced forever, and construction is always easier in the warmer months. Last night, our TV’s HDMI ports–all of them–inexplicably stopped working, so none of our connected devices will work either, and my kid is going to be super pissed when she finds out she can’t watch her stuff for a bit.
My pick for this week is bourbon. Delicious, sadness-removing, life-giving bourbon. It is wonderful, and without it, I would probably have thrown myself into the mouth of a bear or something earlier this week. Bourbon comes in many excellent varieties and is available to people of legal drinking age in most liquor stores.
