This is like a negative thing turned to be a positive thing. Long post for context.
A surprise renovation started in our house on Wednesday. Like, we knew it was coming at some point of the year and that we need to arrange another place to live while it's on because living in the middle of drilling noise and without running water would be a nightmare, especially with a baby. Buuut they screwed up the information part and on Tuesday we learned the work starts the next morning. 'Plenty of time for arrangements
I've been super anxious on a variety of other things as well, I just have so much to do, I haven't had time to even attend religious stuff this month and it's really important for me so it's taking a toll on my stress levels. I'm feeling healthy, generally happy, sleeping well etc, just overburdened by stuff to do and places to go.
The baby is a lifesaver because when I am with her I just don't think about all the other stuff like my thesis or job or writing schedules or positions in associations or anything like that. But the renovation is bad for her too, she can't sleep in the noise, so it is a pain for both of us.
Sooo my in-law parents told us to go to their house so she could sleep and I could at least get rid of the noise.
AND THIS IS A PARADISE
So calm and silent, and as my daughter spends a lot of time with her grandparents here she has zero issues in making herself comfortable.
To make this arrangement perfect, their apartment allows me to comfortably write and/or study while she's having a nap, which isn't easy in our house. So I can write my thesis a lot more than back home, which speeds up my graduation, which is generally a great thing and not only in terms of stress management
And I wouldn't be here without the renovation hassle. Whoa!
