What we’ve been up to since Spring Break 2010
So, my goal was to blog about our adventures, but the sheer work of our project has just made it so that about all I can do is work, (after going to seminary and work in the daytime), and then crash into bed each night. I am stealing a moment now which should be devoted to work, but I did want to keep you all updated (at least a little since we progress each night! My job is to be the stripper(the paint stripper for those who may have other thoughts), and believe me, it is quite the job! I had to do all of the cabinets, before they could be repainted by Dad. Yes, he helped too, but he has also been the workhorse behind the large projects (I call him a STUD) and he is doing a marvelous job at all of them. Saturday he installed (I held it up for him )the built in microwave) and he also did half of the countertops! It all looks great! Day before yesterday, he installed the lightning under the countertops to give us some ambient light (the nightlight effect). Home Depot has become our second home, and I now have man hands from the work I am doing to match the man calves that Michael noticed I sported when I had my running clothes on! More to follow, but for now, I have more work to do! Enjoy our accomplishments!
