I haven't written much lately because I have been exhausted. While my stamina is much improved from a year ago, this has been an emotionally exhausting process. I have had to accept that buying a house on my own is awesome, terrifying, and unexpected. I have had to accept that this isn't how I thought I would look and it dredged up a lot of feelings about not having a partner.
The fan on my personal laptop broke (I am writing this from my work laptop while on vacation - I took a week off to rest and unpack). I took for granted how in the past I've had live-in help for these sorts of things. I looked up how to fix it, and basically I have to take apart my whole computer to replace the fan, which I can do but it brings up the feeling that as a single person I have to be a Renaissance woman and be the master of all things. It's not really about the laptop fan, it's about resiliency.
OK, leather up*, enough whining.
I've been swinging away at getting things crossed off my to-do list the past week or so. I put up (too-short) blinds in the living room.
|Remember kids, measure twice.|
|All of the tile in my house is this inexpensive ceramic tile, and it takes the sealant really well|
After you apply the sealer, you wait a few minutes and then buff it off. I am still working on the floors, doing a little at a time. I didn't bother buffing the floors or tile shower walls in the bathrooms, and it's holding up really nicely.
|It beads right off!|
That's it for today.
