Heya. Since my last update, I…

…was informed that our landlords are selling the house we live in (we live on the top floor; they live below us). lol.

If we decide to stay put, the current owners can’t evict us, but the new owners potentially could. We might also have to deal with people coming in to view the unit while we’re still living here, which is less than ideal at the best of times, and it is certainly not the best of times.

If we decide to move, the owners have graciously offered to put off the house sale for a few weeks so we can get out before they start showing it (although we assume their main motivation for suggesting we leave is because it’s easier to sell a house without existing tenants).

We’ve looked at a couple places already, both in and out of the city (and frankly, I would never have considered living outside the city if we weren’t in the middle of a pandemic). Prices are indeed slightly better than they were a few years ago, but (insert endless screaming)!

So that’s first and foremost on my mind!!!!!!!!!

Aside from that, since my last update, I…

…received and started working on my 1000-piece Suho Self-Portrait puzzle! I pre-ordered this back in early May, and I was very excited when it finally arrived because it’s SO pretty.

It comes with what I think is a little packet of glue and a glue applicator for the completed puzzle.

This is my first time doing a puzzle with my partner, and it’s just as meditative as I remember it being when I was little.

Unfortunately, I keep getting really bad tension headaches from hunching over when I’m puzzling, so I have to work on it in very short bursts. A disappointing reminder that I’m not getting any younger!!
