magic door by k

this year we have a magic door. at least magic to me! it closes and sort of breaks the apartment in 2 so i can't hear every single thing going on in every part of the apartment. last year our bedroom was right above the living/dining room, but there was no door and i could hear every single conversation that went on in there. i didn't realize how much it got to me until we were looking at apartments last spring and found one with a similar setup. i realized at that moment that i couldn't live another year without being able to shut the world (and my family) out sometimes. barak can shut it out and i think the kids can too, but i was an unwilling/passive part of every conversation/fight/discussion had in that apartment and it was too much.

but now i have a magic door!
