    some point in the painting process it occurred to us that we were going to need to sand down the hallway before painting it When I asked out loud But where will we get an electric sander my mother replied I ve got one And when I asked out loud But who shall spend the time sanding down this entire bloody hallway my mother replied I will Armed with an electric sander a face mask and an iron will my mother spent more five hours that Thursday gleefully attacking the Venetian plaster that decorated the front part of our hallway When the plaster proved to be tougher than initially expected my mom fought back with greater force She was a machine She made that plaster her bitch We had been warned by our home decorating expert friend Rachel as well as by my mother that the dust generated by this sanding experiment would get over everything Yeah yeah we said No they said EVERYTHING You ve gotta seal off the hallway with plastic turn it into a scene from Outbreak before you can even think about starting to sand And even then you need to leave it up for a few hours while the Brownian motion does its magic and the dust settles I still was dubious of this doomsday scenario so I halfheartedly followed their advice the plastic went up but when it fell halfway through I didn t bother to fix it Boy did I learn my lesson That shit got over everything floors walls window sills doorknobs blinds eyelashes etc At the entrance to the living room there was a solid layer of dust upon the walls a layer that faded to the actual color of the wall as you walked farther in There were parts of

    2004 By Sandy The ferschnicklement of routine This still doesn t quite feel like my house My house doesn t have boxes strewn about half filled with crap I never really use My house doesn t have this many bedrooms In my house the cereal is over here the spices are over here and I m not exactly sure where the breadknife is but I ll find it eventually And most confusingly my house doesn t have a GIRL living in it Where the hell am I This new paradigm will take some getting used to I know that Shudder I just said paradigm But in the meantime I feel like a fish out of water Or maybe I m still a fish but a different kind of fish like a sea bass in the wrong type of water like a great lake My surroundings are different and the pH meter is in the wrong spot but it s still water I ll figure it out eventually One of the biggest struggles is readjusting routines I m a man of details and obsessiveness so the only way I can get anything done sometimes is to package parts of my day into routines Without them I m bound to obsess over every little detail which quickly devolves into a state of anxiety for me and insanity for loved ones For the sake of all involved it s best not to make me think Here s an abbreviated list of things that have befuddled me and have caused me to spend more time than I m willing to admit walking up and down our hallway in a state of confusion 4 am Turning left instead of right to go from the bedroom to the bathroom while mostly alseep 6 30 am Nakedly
