Carving out a life in a new state, then getting married and buying a condo – all at the same time – wiped me out.
Now we have a new space to nest in, which is uber fun, but it’s also exhausting.
You know what I’m saying. Just all of the frantic running about and unpacking and reshuffling you do when you’re settling into new digs. It’s especially torturous for us type-A’ers who are obsessive and can’t function unless everything looks perfect and is in its place.
Gawd, what happened to me? I used to move back and forth across the country like a hitchhiker. It was apple pie! But now that I’m a grown-ass woman, it’s harder. I have to schlep all of these material accessories that are crucial to my existence, like a king-size bed, karaoke machine, a 2.6-gallon beverage dispenser, fake Christmas tree, and new chafing dish. You know, important stuff.
On top of all this, we don’t have a couch. I never realized how much I like to sit… on pillows, and not on the floor.
To cope with this unsettled feeling, I’ve been eating an insane amount of pasta.
This easy, cheap dish was a healthy pasta escapade, and a break from the usual olive-oil-and-beef-covered-noodle-mania that usually rules my life.
Pasta makes everything better. Even vegetarian pasta. Recipe stolen from here.
