Liquid happy

Because I’m 10,000 words behind. Because my dining room is torn apart from water damage. Because my husband and father-in-law are tiling this weekend. Because horrifying messes always get worse before they get better. Because I’m looking forward to the day when my father-in-law can come over to my house and not either (a) tear my house apart or (b) evaluate how he’s going to tear my house apart.

Because not twenty minutes after my father-in-law called this evening to say he was coming over to tile this weekend, our friends Mike and Sherye called to say they’re coming to visit this weekend. Because our guest room? Torn apart! Because as it turns out, November is an inconvenient month to write a novel.

Because of all the photos I looked through on my search for calm, these are the only ones that spoke to me. Because the holiday season is approaching with the grace and mildness of an avalanche. And they make these mood-enhancing substances for a reason.
