A chocolate kind of moment.

A little bit back to real life today.  Gonna have to stop that and get into vacation mode again....

Market, then into BCN with the man.  There is an exhibit on about Cerdà, who was the engineer who designed a great portion of BCN, we went a few days ago, but the museum closed before we finished the exhibit.  Unfortunately the bit we saw today was shoddily put together, whoever did the research didn't do it well enough.  That coupled with the frankly meaningless graphs they tossed in made it little more than delusional wallpaper.

Ho hum.

Eldest is going to need braces, not a surprise but we know for sure now...

The man and I went off and met with the new and young architects, currently referred to as 'door number 2', also talked to the lawyer about potential problems re the removal of 'door number 1'.

Door 2 seem to be OK, they seem to be more straigh forward, and, well, not to put too fine a point on it, more honest.  They also appear to have our interests in mind rather more.  We'll see.

At one point they were discussing one aspect of the project and, without getting into too many details, were astounded by a large block of knowledge about which we had not been informed.  They were surprised.  I was deeply and profoundly angered.

Options after all that:  chocolate or vodka.

As I don't drink, I went for the chocolate option coupled with mac and cheese made with a truly obsc*ene amount of cheese.....

Ah...fat and cocoa for mood improvement.

Worked too.

Hope the man took his cholesterol meds this morning.

Sounds like the switch to Door No. 2 has already paid off. Aren't you glad you didn't find out the huge block of knowledge after it was too late??? Yeesh. I would have needed both chocolate and vodka.

P.S. Good luck on the new puzzle!

Here's to comfort foods - chocolate (oh, yeah!) and mac & cheese!

Happy New Year to you and yours!

Renovations...ug. They are just so frustrating. I'd keep that chocolate handy in the coming months.

Happy New Year, Oreneta! Hope it's a good one for you.

JG, thanks for the wishes with the puzzle, it is going very very very slowly.....and yes, it seems like it is maybe paying off already!
