I read this today over on Kal's awesome blog: "My Mom taught me a valuable lesson about dealing with emotional pain: JUMP INTO A BIG PROJECT. Go whole hog. That's her solution for everything. Long distance relationship? Paint your bedroom. Empty nest syndrome? Build a massive pergola. Anxiety? Re-tile your bathroom. Heartsick? Rip out the carpet!"
I was going to wait till after my Australia visit to repaint the bedroom ... but now I'm thinking this weekend, while the city is mired in Carmaggedon, might be the perfect time. Because I sure won't be going anywhere.
