Why does buying a house have to be so damn complicated and stressful? Long story short, we put in an offer on a house Monday night, and should have had an answer Wednesday morning. Things are more complicated than they first appeared, and as of this writing, we still do not have an answer one way or the other. It sounds like things should become clear soon, but DAMN this is killing us!
I am SO GRATEFUL for electricity and running water. Due to the wind storm, we didn’t have power or running water at home from Sunday night through Wednesday afternoon. You never realize just how much you take things like that for granted until they are gone. And we’re actually among the lucky ones, as I have some friends who still don’t have power!
I’m home alone this weekend. Sadly, Ben’s Uncle Lou passed away last week, and the memorial service is in upstate New York this weekend. Due to a lack of vacation time, I opted to stay home. While I’ll miss seeing Ben’s extended family and saying goodbye to Uncle Lou, me staying home means that we don’t have to hire a pet sitter for the weekend, so I’m trying to look on the bright side. This memorial will also likely be Irish wake style, so I’m saving my liver some damage as well.
My office now has a shiny red Swingline stapler. Yep, just like Milton from Office Space. Apparently, the office manager got it free with her order of something else, and you’d better believe I pounced on it immediately. It gives me SO MUCH JOY.
Do you have a favorite piece of office decor/equipment?
