Sorry, Kitchen's Closed

Just a quick update:

It has been a long time since I've posted any updates about the new house. Again, that's because there hasn't been anything to report. But while the past few months have offered little in the way of progress, today ushered in a tiny bit of hope. I've gotten used to living without a kitchen, though it's not easy. In fact, it's pretty annoying. If I didn't have a refrigerator in the basement, it would've been much more difficult. At first I just ate a lot of fast food (silly me, I didn't think it would take so long to get the kitchen renovation started), but then I grew out of almost all of my clothes. It's not funny. The only skirt that fits me is the one with the elastic waistband, which is totally unacceptable, and also really depressing. In fact I can't believe I just told you that. Can I hold Chick-Fil-A responsible for the whole thing? Anyway, I'm not eating all that junk anymore so I hope that sometime in the next month or two I'll be able to reunite with my old wardrobe.

My living room is looking pretty special these days. It is full of kitchen cabinets, as well as the boxes in which the cabinets were shipped, which you'll see I have carefully stacked in an artistic ode to the leaning tower of Pisa. I also have cabinets stashed away in a spare bedroom. See?




OK, onto the progress. First, let me remind you how the kitchen looked when I bought the house:







Today when I got home from work, this is what it looked like.




Fancy, eh? Admit it, you've never seen a more handsome hole in the wall. Hey, it's a start. I'm just glad to have things rolling. I'll have another update as soon as it's warranted, which I hope is soon.

Glad to know you haven't dropped off the face of the earth! Or given up on the home project. :)

Excited to see how your BEAUTIFUL cabinets look inside your kitchen once it's finished.

Your post cracked me up, by the way. :)

$9.99 hotplate will save both your wallet and your sanity. If you are a "foodie," get two or three hotplates. $30 is less than a week's worth of fast food, plus cooking on 'em gives you infinite street cred

I'll have to look into a hotplate or two. It just so happens I am in the market for something to augment my street cred.
