Home building


We’re in rebuilding mode.
This week, after months of red tape and displacement, we’re finally ready to put hammer to nail and repair our Hurricane Sandy ravaged home.
This week, after months of prep and weeks of injections, it looks as if we’re headed to the OR and the egg retrieval stage of our IVF.
Why all at once you might ask?
Cause in my house we don’t do small tasks, we do huge projects. Not by design, mind you, but by default.
And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
In a lot of ways I identify with that house. It’s got a sturdy frame, lots of character, and has been battered a bit of late.
But she still has plenty of glory days ahead.


About domesticpolichick

My life is a crazy jumble of sitcom-level domestic hijinks and fast-paced political reporting in the nation's capital. Breastfeeding while doing a phone interview with a senator...yep, I've done it and no, I won't reveal the name. Toddler calling a member of Congress on the cell..yeah, that really did happen. Pregnant in high heels on Capitol Hill trying to chase down a particularly grumpy senator, yeah...that was nuts. But what can I say? I'm just one domestic polichick trying to figure out the work-life balance.
