Finding thrifted tacky cribs and making them even more tacky with a little paint is one of my favorite ways to avoid facing the tragedy of American politics.

Since most of the house is currently celebrating the "windswept and wild" look, I am trying to stay focused on being happy with the little corners of clean that still exist.
My desk, for example, is tidy. Cleanliness in our home means "currently unused". The more clean the area, the less it is lived.
