Here I am amidst all of the chaos. The kitchen table is full of crap. Crap that would normally be on the kitchen counter that is being replaced (with glorious granite, I might add). Our old sink is in the family room, the plywood that used to be underneath the old counter is standing up next to me by the computer, pieces of the old counter top are also leaning up against the bar stools that are stacked near the computer. The dogs are stuck in the garage (because there are 5 guys here in and out of the house working on the kitchen).
And hubby is off to Scottsdale AZ for 4 days with "the guys" going to Spring Training. Did I mention I am supposed to be at work right now? Oh yeah, and Darren has been puking all morning. Joy. Oh joy.
But the funny thing is that because I am the only adult around for the next few days, I take this all as a challenge instead of just a totally frustrating annoyance like I would if Hubby were around. For some reason when I am left to the grown up, I become quite strong, quite resilient, quite patient. So it is my challenge over the next several days to get this house back in shape. To right the wrong, to put things back in their places and find a place for things that don't belong anymore (like the old sink and the old counter top). And I have two strong boys to help me make that happen. Well, maybe 1 1/2 since the younger one seems to be weak from hurling.
Once I have things put back together as much as possible, I will post photos of the new kitchen. Although it won't be completely done today; they will need to come back another day to finish the back-splash portion.
Good thing I'm taking tomorrow as a day off from my job!
