The Kitchen is "Finished"

The tiles are all in place.

The dishwasher has been replaced.

The cleanup people came and cleaned up.

Now all we have to do is completely reorganize the cabinets and wash every dish, pot, pan, storage container, fork, spoon, knife, etc.

In other words, the work is done but there is still work to be done.  But at least, starting tomorrow, we can actually cook some meals in our own kitchen again.  I'm so excited.  Home cooking!  Yay!

The dogs, however, cannot walk through the kitchen until later tomorrow or even possibly Thursday.  I'm eager for them to have the same freedom as the rest of us because we have to live our lives in such a way as to accommodate them. We may be free to walk around the kitchen but until the dogs have free reign, we are all still under the dictates of circumstances.

Maybe tomorrow.  By Thursday at the absolute latest.


  1. Well, we still have a lot of dusting and cleaning to do before I can sit in the living room for any length of time without my eyes itching and my throat getting scratchy. But I miss cooking so very much that it will be nice to cook again.

  2. what will your "breaking in the kitchen" meal be?

  3. I had hoped it would be eggplant parmagiana or chicken parmagiana with a nice salad on the side but Rob never went to the supermarket and then took a second two hour nap, waking up too late for me to make anything from scratch.

    I could cry. We ate McDonalds. Blech.
