WOMP WOMP WOMP
I finally decided to go ahead and do curbside pickup on the insulation and paneling, because that seemed like a safe compromise between "getting shit done" and also not interacting with too many humans.... And despite having 30+ panels in stock a few days ago when I was comparing options, when I tried to order them yesterday, they were ALLLLLL gone. Apparently everyone and their brother has decided that quarantine is definitely the time to do all those home improvement projects they've been putting off! They're not wrong, but I'm still annoyed haha.
|I am somewhat mollified by my eBay impulse purchases trickling in - I bought these from two different sellers but they're a pretty close match, and I think they're fun. Vaguely reminiscent of my sliding door handles in the house but wayyyy cheaper!
|The chandelier arrived Friday and I spent a lengthy amount of time swearing as I assembled it....
|But #worthit! I didn't finish and put the dome on it because that needs to happen when it's installed and it also cannot be installed without the paneling 🤷♀️😅
So that's the state of things - delayed! Which again, I know, it's the firstiest of first world problems, but it was kind of the only thing keeping me going through being stuck at my house not riding indefinitely. And I realized belatedly that I was super overly emotional this weekend because it was also the weekend I was supposed to be spending in KY with a fantastic group of bloggers (#bestweekendallyear). So some of my irrational disappointment over stupid things like panels not being in stock is really about the fact that Land Rover got cancelled. Which again, first world problems. The Zoom party Saturday night did help (thanks Liz and Holly and Amanda for all your hard work!) yank me out of the doldrums for a bit :)
|Sunrise this morning also lifted my spirits.
