Well, I can’t work on my wip baby any tonight because first I have to rearrange my room. ??? I know, this begs an explanation. And it’s coming, but be forewarned that it’s not short. ok, here goes:
Since it’s been in the mid to high 80s all week, the bugs are out like crazy. And since I use a daylight lamp to work with (at all times, but it’s a must at night), bugs are attracted to my light. And since the sealing in this apartment stinks (and in the other ones, from what I’ve heard), the bugs come in whether the window is closed or not. Though I’d love to have the window open because the only time it’s cool is at night, I keep it closed because the bugs are twice as bad with it open. I believe this is mostly because of the crummy sealing, but is probably not helped by the fact that my desk (and thus my lamp) is directly in front of the window, hypnotizing and luring bugs from miles around (slight exaggeration here).
And so, in hopes of correcting this issue, tomorrow morning I am going to be rearranging my tiny room so that my bed is on that wall and my desk is on the opposite wall (where my bed currently is). I am not thrilled about this idea, since my laptop light is sure to attract some bugs (as it did the other night when I shut off my daylight lam, flopped into bed, and opened my laptop), but I don’t see any other way because I simply cannot work on the babies when there are bugs flying in my face (not to mention it’s just gross).
Next Monday or Tuesday I should hear back from the bank on whether or not I’m approved for a home loan. If so, then hooray! and I’ll be able to wait for a month or two until the move (though my room is still getting rearranged tomorrow morning). If not, then I will be buying some very meshed mesh (you know what I mean, right?) and tacking over the entire window and frame, to keep the bugs out during this summer. And I might have to do the same for the patio door and the other two windows in the apartment, as they are just as bad.
