Rearview – Most of the kitchen renovation is in the rear view window. Only the replacement window (which hasn’t come in and is the hold-up) and the backsplash remain to be done. It was a big job because we relocated appliances which required more electrical work. Toss the holidays in there (both Thanksgiving and Christmas) and it took nine weeks. It’s a miracle I have any sanity left. (No snarky remarks please!) Here is a picture. You can see the backsplash samples against the wall but otherwise it’s blotchy drywall back there. If the window doesn’t come anytime soon, I may paint the backsplash to get rid of the stark white blotchy look. It’s very light and airy room and we love it.
What happens when you get wired out – As I was loading up my kitchen cabinets, I found my Keurig. There is a snow-ice-rain storm predicted for tonight into Monday morning. I wanted to have a back-up in case a trip to Starbucks was out of the question. I spent a half hour looking for the carafe to the coffeemaker before the beloved husband reminded me that it makes one cup at a time. No carafe, you put your cup there.
That ain’t all – In sock heaven (where all those mismatched socks from the dryer go) there are a few boxes circulating. All boxes are emptied at this point but some things are missing. I went into my corner cabinet and found my favorite Rubbermaid storage containers. I didn’t box them so they would be handy if I wanted to use them. That only works if you remember where they are. There are a few other items that are MIA.
A mystery – Yesterday morning I found a fresh blood spot on the carpet. Checking the beloved husband it wasn’t him. Checked the cats. I couldn’t find the originator so I cleaned it up and hope for the best (and hopefully no emergency vet run!).
Yikes! – I haven’t really stocked the new kitchen yet. I picked up a couple of items today and holy cow, prices have gone up. Who thought I would pay the same per pound price for bacon today that I paid for high end steak just a few years ago. Going vegan is sounding better all the time!
So how was your week?
