A) Marry Christmas! As much as I value multicultural tolerance, Kwanzaa is not a holiday, sorry. I am all for Hanukkah though.
B) If you thought, I have moved and lost Internet connection forever, you were wrong. I am redoing my house.
For the past 2 months or so I had the foundations repaired (since my kitchen countertop separated from the wall and sank 3 inches). The foundation repair cracked all of the walls. 100 year old plaster walls are hard to fix so they had to put sheet rock in two rooms. Then painting and all that. Miraculously we finished 2 days before Christmas. I still have sheetrock dust EVERYWHERE but I got 3 brand new-looking rooms.
Oh, a cherry on top - in the process I found out that all of the wiring here is the original knob and tube, which is a fire hazard. And all of the woodwork has peeling lead paint.
I am thinking that I should have just bought another house. I love this one though.
I hope everybody is doing fine and I promise I will post more often. A lot of shit happened this fall and I had to work through a lot of emotional crap. Being alone and hermit-ty was the best thing.
