Long week

It's a long week when your refrigerator is in your living room...



And your stove is in your den...

When you only work at night, you get a little done at a time...


And some the next night, and then the next...


Daytime life needles its way into your night time hours and threatens to end the project, so you take a break on the third night, cancel some weekend plans, make others, and make a solid effort at finishing...

But you run out of mastic and tile after midnight, and so when your three-year-old wakes you the next morning at 8:30 because "It's morning time!" you make a run to Seconds and Surplus and Home Depot, and your chief tile cutter blogs the week's events.

Say, does your tile guy need another job after this? I know an old large kitchen floor begging to wear something new and fashionable perhaps Mexican saltillos or some limestone...

btw, we have the same cabinets faces... mine are solid oak and weigh a ton...anyway if you go granite for countertops, 'white kashmir' rocks. (heh).

Just move your refrigerator to the front porch and y'all can call yourselves the Flower Mound Hillbillies! ;)

It's gorgeous, Janet. Gene has to be out of town this week, but next weekend, we'll put down the grout, and then, I suppose, start looking for the right stain for our cabinets.

Dana, our cabinets are solid oak to! We are not changing the cabinet arrangement so we can't justify buying new ones, alas. Plus, I understand, that's the most expensive part of the kitchen re-model.

We have more to do, but I really feel luxurious with this new floor.

it is utterly gorgeous. You guys are amazing! I could barely stand the stress of having someone ELSE replace our floors, while I was sharing house only with cats, not kids (the cats also have "it's morning time!" tendencies however). You & Gene RULE THE WAVES.
