I would say it’s a quiet night here, but that would be a lie. The huge project in our building—replacing all the pipes in over 500 units—has somehow turned into a wreck. Three leaks in the new pipes (installed to reduce leaks) during last week alone. Now we have holes in several walls, our dishwasher is ripped out, and an industrial dryer/dehumidifier is running. Thankfully it’s just like white noise. Loud white noise, but white noise. Anna doesn’t seem to mind. At least for now. Everyone else minds, but Anna seems okay with it.
