I like to cook with wine..

Sometimes I even put it in the food.

The past couple of days have been nothing but putting away boxes. I have a gigantic pile of boxes in the entryway which will go to the recycling center. However, I still cannot say that all the boxes are gone.

Nevertheless I am proud of all the work that has happened. The living and dining rooms are painted. The wallpaper in the dining room, removed with startling swiftness and dexterity by my mother in law, revealed a dense layer of wallpaper glue which took three days to remove. Remove it we did, Goddammit!

And tonight is the first night we actually cooked dinner. Spaghetti. In case you were wondering.

It tasted so victory.

I even put my pretty Pottery Barn napkin rings around the paper towels we are using for napkins. Now that's class.


  1. If the smell of napalm in the morning smells like victory, and the spaghetti tasted like victory, does that mean that you put the wine bottle next to the napalm bottle?


  2. Oh no. Now I have to figure out how to keep Eric from carbonating the Napalm.
