After much nagging and gnashing of teeth (mine), all the cabinets are in, along with the sink and running water. You have no idea what a convenience this is, until it is taken away for a week!
The upper cabinets went in last night and I have spent the day putting things away. I have tossed a lot of crap. You know the stuff. Cool whip containers and extra straws and such. I am quite pleased with the space. I still have one lower cabinet to unload and put in the upper cabinets. I am tired, though. We can eat at the table tonight and that is progress!!
I am taking my time and cleaning as I go. I went from 3 drawers to 8. Wall to wall cabinets, where open shelves used to be. I had the uppers put up all the way to the ceiling. I will need to purchase a fetching stool. In the meantime I am using my stepstool that have all manner of stuff clinging to it. Paint and glue. I suppose I could clean it up, but He Who needs a lift now and again is apt to borrow it and all my efforts would be for not. Remember the old ones that had a chair seat and the steps pulled out? I would love one of those. I will launch a search tonight.
He Who hits water hydrants with his big mower, then spends an entire day fixing a mess that was easily preventable, made an offer this morning that has had me chuckling all day long. He offered to build a library ladder in my kitchen. You know the kind, on a track set into the ceiling. Really, after all the fuss with putting the cabinets in, does he think I would climb aboard some contraption he set into the ceiling?
I once asked him if he minded me poking fun at him on this blog and he told me to go for it, so if any of you think I am a bit too critical of him .... he finds my posts amusing.
And I found 5 box tops for Casey's Pizza!! Stuck away in the junk drawer for who knows how long. Just 4 more and I will enjoy a free pizza. If only that was tonight.
40 years ago, today, I gave birth to my son and daughter. I cannot believe that much time has slipped by. I wish I could be with them to celebrate this milestone. I will see them in September when their little sister weds the love of her life. We will celebrate then. I miss them today, though.
