Went across town to sit with my sweet friends The Boersma's last night and got home late so I did not get around to blogging. Here is the beginning of the kitchen redo. I made the before pictures after I had cleaned everything out of the kitchen which I wish I had done before---but you get the idea and lots of you had already seen what was there. Keep in mind that this is a 40 year old house-so somethings you cannot change. I think it is going to be great once I finish-but we will see. # 1 son-Scott, who is a carpenter himself-laughed when I told him I thought 2 weeks without a kitchen. He also raised those eyebrows when Bobby told him I was contracting all of this out myself & doing all of the coordinating & planning. Well now I have a mission to prove his Mom is not a complete dolt and can get this done.
Yesterday was stripping out the cabinets, removing the sink-by plumber first-and starting the wiring. Today is taking up the old floor and today or tomorrow the painter is coming to redo the ceiling. BUSY BUSY with Lora the contractor in charge!
We ran 5 miles yesterday. If I get much slower, I will be crawling. I just cannot seem to get it going since the crud which I still have a lingering cough from. Missed yoga this AM, but hopefully will get in some exercise before the day is over.

I don't envy you right now but I will once it is done. I love a new kitchen. I have had one in the last 3 houses. Nothing like a kitchen no one has ever cooked in before!

The fun has begun...I hate having things torn up, but it is so worth it. Can't wait to see the "after" shots. I know you feel the same, Ms. Contractor Lady.
