Construction where you live is so disorienting and disquieting. In 2011, I experienced the same in the house we were renting. Major leak led to a bathroom and the kitchen being torn apart and reconstructed. What chaos — I don’t wish that on anyone!

But, in spite of the chaos, you have a very upbeat attitude toward the start of your day!

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
