Last official day of vacation and, as sometimes happens with vacations, it’s all discombobulated and grumpy. I’m gonna send my irritants out into the world in this post, and see if that helps me get over them.
Ready to go “ew”? Last night I saw so many bugs in my kitchen that I had to email the landlord about it. They’ve been steadily increasing since the units around me emptied out and the building did big construction in them (I am picturing all the bug households going “ahhh! The roof is falling in! Quick, pack everything up and move to Margaret’s house, it’s the only safe space left!”). I cleaned, I sealed all my food, I bought my own traps, weeks and weeks of this, and no improvement. And now I have to wait for the landlord to do something and it’s all GROSS.
So I slept poorly last night, picturing little bugs everywhere. And I woke up super early at 5am. But then I thought “hey, I’m on vacation! I’m gonna just get up and start the day”. Of course, I had to order breakfast, because I can’t eat food from my kitchen right now (SO GROSS). So I order breakfast from a local coffee place. And then my order doesn’t come doesn’t come doesn’t come. And I finally realize, DUH, it’s Saturday. Seeing as I live in the Orthodox neighborhood, the coffee place is closed and won’t open until tomorrow, my order was scheduled for tomorrow morning.
Okay, second try, order again from somewhere else, I get the alert it’s been delivered, I get a picture of where it was left…not my lobby. Call the delivery person who reveals that my address for some reason translates into a different address a block away in their app. So, no food.
Third try! I have now been awake 4 hours and I am STARVING. I end up with a delicious amazing breakfast from a really great local bakery (well, semi-local, 2 miles from me because everything in a mile radius is closed on Saturdays). Fruit and nutella French toast and whipped iced coffee, divine.
Anyway, my plan for the day was to sleep in, have breakfast, then have a spa day and read A Discovery of Witches. But instead, I think my plan is going to be writing this post in order to process my bugs/breakfast fury, and then being very lazy and doing my new easy big piece puzzle until I am ready for a nap.
