Life in Shambles

A bit dramatic, yes? The kitchen is officially in shambles. Nate is waiting until next week to tear out the stove. When that happens, we'll really be screwed. Right now we have dust on the floors and doors off the cabinets. All will be torn apart.

Our contractor sent us the final estimate today. YIKES! Word to the wise: Don't add and add and add to your wish list with your contractor and expect the number to be small. We're going to go forward, knowing that we'll be all but broke for the foreseeable future. It will all be worth it in the end. It will all be worth it in the end. It WILL ALL BE WORTH IT IN THE END!

The countertops are ordered. The sink and over-the-sink-light is on its way. We'll buy the faucet this weekend. All that we have left to pick out are tiles and paint. Hopefully that means that the weekend shopping sprees are over. Who knew that re-doing a kitchen would be all-consuming? Not I, I say. Not I.
