|The cabinets begin to go in. Obviously that big hole is for the fridge.|
|Let there be doors!|
|My dog Lou is confused by all the commotion, not to mention the boxes!|
|New appliances came today! Too bad they're in the living room right now.|
I'm a little surprised (though I probably shouldn't be) by how stressful I'm finding everything. I have to confess that when our designer tried to blow off a meeting last week, I lost it. I sent her a very sternly worded email pointing out that no, our meeting was not "tentative"; my husband and I rearranged schedules to be able to make the meeting that was to start the whole reno process. Afterward, I felt a little embarrassed because I'm usually a pretty reasonable person, though I still think she was being unprofessional.
Perhaps it's a good thing I'm getting out of Dodge. I'd arranged to go to a writing retreat in another province before I realized our kitchen reno was going to happen at this time. I'm counting on my husband to handle things while I'm gone, and I know he can. But the control freak in me worries something will go wrong without me...
Anyway, I will be away writing madly next week, so I won't be with you on April 8. Have a wonderful start to April and I'll see you soon!
I've often heard that moving house is one of the most stressful things you can do, but now I think kitchen renos are just as bad. What is the most stressful thing you've ever done?
