Spent the morning and afternoon trying and failing to find window insulation film kits for fourteen windows; the kits that are big enough for my windows are no longer sold! (62" high seems to be the standard size, but that is too small for this old house!)
Hours and hours and hours and hours because the hardware store within walking distance is now closed, so I took the bus north to the alternative hardware store, which unlike last year did not have the big kits, so I then took the bus and then west to the mall and Home Depot, which did not have the big kits either.
And I hadn't brought my iPad with me because I figured the bus trip would be short. So I couldn't work or study.
And then hours on a useless email thread. Atrios told me: "Post, post, post!"
Yet here I am, not posting. And "winter is coming." Grrr!!!!!!!!
First world problems, I know.
NOTE The only saving grace was that I bought a Scientific American special issue on food to read on the bus, and realized how repulsively corporate it's become. The timeline on food preservation, which equated wine and cheese with Spam, said it all. Oh my gawd it was horrible.
