Davis (our oldest son - will be 10 soon) was suppose to have surgery (his twelfth ... but who's counting?!) in August ... but due to circumstances that could not be controlled ... it was rescheduled for December. He was relieved ... and it really did work out because he would have missed out on the several weeks of summer fun. This way he can still play flag-football! It is all about sports for him :O)
So I say all of that because I think to myself, "Gina, are you nuts for trying to do a blog about your cottage-thang when your life is so busy?" And then I answer myself, "Yes, you are completely nuts ... you've got two small (medium) boys that have their own medical issues (nothing life threatening -- just a part of our life journey), and a wonderful husband who loves to eat home-cooked meals, plus I'm trying to work a part-time job at the school the boys attend, also serving in a couple of ministries at our church and attempting to do a kitchen re-do on top of it all."
Wow ... when I write it all out ... it does sound like a lot.
I hesitate to show you pictures ... because I can only see the stuff that still needs to get done
but I'm among friends ... right?
So after weeks of filth, dry-wall dust, sub-flooring, no-running water in the kitchen, and missing counter-tops ... we have something to show for our work ...
Do you remember what it looked like before?
what you see below was the toughest part of the whole project ...
Dan says, "there should be a rule that says ... the operator of the sink should weigh less than the sink!"
it is sooooooooo H E A V Y !
Mom, what do you think?
Mom was with us during the grit the grime and the muck!
Thanks mom for all the tomatoes you canned this summer in a kitchen that
really didn't even exist ... we love you!
So ... my hope is that I can blog about all the fun things that happened along the journey ... the sink, the faucet, that new dishwasher ... and did you see the frig?! CRAIGSLIST FIND! Amazing ... can't wait to share all the "wow" moments.
What still needs to happen?
