Why not add some more stress to election week, I said to myself.
Then, looking up from my date book, I said “yes” to the sales representative sitting across our kitchen table from me.
Therein I agreed to be here at the house this week so that we could have new windows and doors installed.
Windows on second floor, doors on first floor.
Naturally when I told Zen-Den, Esq, about when all this was going to happen, he mentioned that he’d be out of town on work this week.
On the other side of the country. In southern California.
This, however, did not stop me, intrepid homeowner and [nasty] woman with a purpose.
Nope, I went forward with the project, knowing as I do that winter is [global warming notwithstanding] around the corner.
And that I want leakless windows and airtight doors put on this house before it gets cold outside.
Thus I’ve been here this week, all by my ownsome, counterbalancing loud screechy construction noises [similar to those created by the cat in the video below] with political angst + existential outrage courtesy of the results of this presidential election.
Ain’t life a pip?
