First, we installed a new light fixture in the kitchen so that I no longer feel that I’m cooking or eating under an interrogator’s lamp. This was a big step for me, since electricity is scary and dangerous. Nobody got electrocuted, though, so cheers to the Brecki household. I also took on the dumb but satisfying task of corralling all my extension cords and either taping them to the wall with white duct tape or tucking them into a rubber cord protector a la this. This is the most boring thing to talk about on a blog, I am sure, but I’ll tell you what: it made a difference in my quality of life. That is probably because something is very wrong with me, but at least I’m dealing with it.
Lest other appliances feel neglected, I juiced a ton of fruits and vegetables from the farmer’s market and mixed them with sparkling water (thanks to our much-loved SodaStream) for spritzers. If you alternate cinnamon buns and fresh juice, that’s kind of like a cleanse, right? Sure.
