The thing about this mirror frame.
Is that it weighs a ton.
The thing about the glass.
Is that it also weighs a ton.
Apparently, all of this is fine and I have not yet reached the furthest limits of what I am able to acquire, as will be evidenced by an upcoming post, for which I have a sponsor, because failure was not an option.
In one piece.
I should have more to say about this mirror installation.
Considering there was scaffolding.
But my brain is useless.
Dismantling the kitchen, hobbiting in the basement, living in chaos, DELAYED CHAOS, then getting it all back together to have my brothers and bff come to stay… followed by Paul’s family… on the surface all that seemed like terrible timing… but it turned out to be perfect.
After the floors, I would have been compelled anyway, to do the kind of cleaning that makes all the other people in your house hate you… so the combination of houseguests, and the POSSIBILITY of everything being “right” made the effort… not fun, but SATISFYING
ESPECIALLY because I’ve been de-hoarding for the last 6 months… an unexpected shift in perspective that I am ASTOUNDED by.
My entire life I have been PLAGUED by the “i save crap” gene.
Then one day I looked around and was like— why all this crap. bye.
It is not about having fewer things.
It is about having less crap.
Life has been chaotic and I was REALLY looking forward to TODAY— a return to real life and sanity and no other people… and our car was stolen FROM the driveway, this morning at 4am.
Paul heard something and got up— prepared to rage about how the kittens do not respect sleep… he got to see the van drive out of the driveway.
So I am totally enjoying the return to real life.
Suggestions for home surveillance video cameras?
I googled it but cloud storage, text alerts, infrared… ugh… please spoonfeed me… pressure sensors to go anywhere, alerts if someone steps on your doormat… although even if we had that, neither of us would see a text at 4am.
Right now am feeling this kind which has BOTH floodlights AND a camera AND a speaker so you can talk your intruder to death… and if that doesn’t work, there is a siren.
FYI: we are olds with no Alexa and I do not need it to pair with my thermostat… But if you tell me some other thing to go along with my new maximum security facility, I will listen. I am an Amazon person… but also an Apple person.
I do not care what it looks like. We have no home phone line. We do have motion detectors, but we are getting more because building Alcatraz after the fact is totally reasonable.
Also, WHY someone steals a FIFTEEN-year-old VAN… WHY!?
Literally, no one BUT ME could possibly WANT that car. WHY!?
It was perfect for cats and flowers and hauling STUFF.
Also, it worked.
Also, I am extra mad that I JUST FILLED THE GAS TANK AND I HATE GETTING GAS BECAUSE IT IS SO TEDIOUS AND UNBEARABLE.
Anyway. I have much other to tell you, but now have to insurance; so brief updates so you are not in the dark:

Porch kitty is good!
She healed well and is back outside (her preference) with Mister.
Webster has been adopted.
I’m looking forward to telling you more, once I get my brain back!!!
I have the very sweetest kittens ever.
I thought I might be able to socialize some (other) kittens… I ended up TNR-ing them. Feelings.
I have a new idea about kitchen cabinets that I think everyone will hate… I am letting it marinate to see if it is glorious. Or idiocy.
I have run out of the ability to edit words.
