Yes, it's been raining for a week.
Yes, we have crappy pots and dull knives and no coffee grinder. (I was able to pull off the chicken noodle soup though, thank you very much.)
Yes, we're staying in a ghetto-adjacant 'hood.
But then there was yarn. And knitters. And a great coffee shop to house the knitters and their yarn.
And there is Mexican food. And Sailor Jerry lives at the supermarket (and at your local corner store, and you may even find him at the gas station). And Bevmo!
And there are kitchens to plan!
All in all, I think the outlook is good.
