Then there was this. Do you see that naughty outlet? It manages to electrify the toaster....but not my mixer. Annoying. SO......................
This is what I have to do to use the mixer. Run an extension cord across the floor to a different outlet. Annoying.
Again, I'll just wait to have my kitchen remodel and then get it fixed. Wink wink.
(Oh, and if you're curious THESE are the cookies I was making. They make your ENTIRE house smell delightful!!)
Do you see that BEAUTIFUL faux wood paneling? I am offering that for sale to the highest bidder. Okaaaaay......GO.
What? No bidders?
Can you guess where this is in my kitchen?
The ceiling. The whole blessed thing.
Can you guess where this frosting finish is?
On the kitchen walls.
Every wall that isn't encased in faux wood paneling.
And can you guess how much dirt, dust and ick gets stuck to frosting finish on kitchen walls?
It will wait until my kitchen remodel. Wink wink.
Here it is folks, the whole beautiful set up. Envious, aren't you? Isn't it fab? My friend lives in my house's twin house a few blocks over (at least it has TONS of the same detailing)...she still has her ORIGINAL kitchen. It's gorgeous...original cabinets, hard wood floor, plastered walls. I'm all about forward progress....but WHY OH WHY did that "progress" have to happen in my nearly hundred year old kitchen? Why? tears sliding down my cheeks
So here's the deal. I need your help. My husband needs to be convinced that I should just be able to tear into this puppy. I can do it. I know I can do it.....with the help of a plumber...and an electrician....and maybe someone who knows something about floors....and ceilings (did I mention in addition to that fancy finish, the ceiling was also dropped two feet).....with the help of all those other people I can do this!!! It's time for the kitchen remodel.
I rest my case.
