but the truth is, it's a not think piece. I want to do something and not think about it so much that it doesn't matter what that thing is.
I've been too distracted to focus on anything that needs close attention like - who did what to who and when, and when, exactly did she know about it - the kinds of things that drive readers crazy when writers don't get them right.
The joys of home ownership continue. Yesterday I found out that the flooding we had on the lowest level of the house is not covered by the homeowners insurance. Busted pipes? No problem. Deluge from above coming in/around/through the foundation? Sorry.
First order of business is having the massive boxwood hedges that run the whole front of the house cut down and dug out. That is going to look like shit for sure. I'll get that estimate on Saturday. New gutters...of course. then the demolition downstairs.
I get it that there are people in the world who don't even have a roof over their heads or a place to tuck their kids in at night. Bitching about my house feels bad, but it's all I have so I have to hang on to it.
