Oh boy

This has been the kind of week I want a refund on. Nothing's gone particularly well, and it's not even midday yet, and I'm exhausted.

The husband got a few unexpected days off after a client lost their funding, so we took advantage of that and went down to Vancouver to get the rest of our stuff out of storage, where it's been since we moved back up here from Las Vegas. Robin Hood took the stuff that was in his folks' spare room, and I took the garage, and boy, that was embarassing. When we moved up here in the first place, we didn't have much time to pack, so everything pretty much got shoved into boxes, and then shoved wherever it would fit.

Apparently "everything" included trash, because that's what we were storing in their garage. What started off as six boxes came out as one, plus a bag of clothes. Eurgh.

So, that's what we've been doing all week; going through it and trying to fit everything we brought back into what we already have. My office got a complete re-decoration, including the loss of all doors, to better fit my drafting table in here.

Last night, I wound up falling into the rabbit hole of recommended videos on YouTube, and found myself in the Korean cooking section. I've been wanting to try making my own Asian noodles for a while, since I already make my own spaghetti and ravioli, and watching the videos last night gave me the kick in the pants I need. I went across the street to Safeway to get some black bean paste and potato starch, and am now taking a quick breather before getting my kitchen back into enough of an order that I can actually cook something. I'm gonna try Jajangmyeon tonight, with a few tweaks to make it safe for me and my ridiculous allergies. I've got the shitakes soaking right now, and decided to just go vegetarian with it, since beef is fucking expensive and we used up all the chicken the other night. So I'm just gonna double up on the mushrooms and call it good.

I'll probably post pictures to Instagram later on, as I'm actually doing it. I'm not sure what to expect from the dough, but everything I've seen suggests it won't be nearly as sticky as pasta dough is. Which I'm actually looking forward to.
