Almost Home!

I hate to jinx things but it *looks* like after our appliances are put back tonight, our kitchen will be done!  As it's been about five weeks over what they gave us as an estimate, you can understand that we're all a little skeptical.


..says Little Mister Kitten Pants who will soon have his beloved sun porch back and will no longer have to hang out in this bastardized clubhouse


...says Pip who always is a bit of a sassy skirts

We're all having a hard time believing that we will soon be able to do things like use a stove and walk through doors to other rooms. No longer will we have to stare into the deep abyss that used to be our plumbing.



Or the rubble that used to be our floor: 


Or walk the trail of tears that led to our back door:


We'll finally get to see what's behind this:



And see if we chose the right colors:



Of course I know from experience with those construction company jokers that anything could go wrong with the appliance move tonight - why, their truck could come crashing through the side of our house!  - so I'm probably getting ahead of myself here but we are SUPER excited.  A lot of cleaning and box unloading will be in order. And actually, workers from that horrible company are supposed to do those things but I don't trust them not to completely ruin our way-too-prolonged happy ending so we'll be doing it ourselves! 

Hopefully, I'll be back soon with some "After" photos!

Until next time,
x's and o's,
Eartha

Wow, did I ever pick the right moment to make another visit to your blog! I'm riveted. I hope that's not a pun.

Woo Hoo! CONGRATULATIONS!!! You have been a pinnacle of patience and hilarity (from my perspective anyhow) this whole time and you definitely deserve your kitchen to be whole!! Let us know how it goes!

Jen said...

YAY! So excited for you—what a relief. You two must be having nightmares (other than the daytime kitchen one).

Best of luck to you. I just know after all the delay it's going to be perfect.

I'm so excited for you! (and thanks for introducing "sassy skirts" into my lexicon :)

The first thing I'd recommend you do in that kitchen is bake brownies and eat 'em straight out of the pan with a big ol' spoon. Seriously. You deserve it. I'm so happy you get to move back in!

You've been far more patient than I would have been through all this ordeal, so I hope when you see everything in place and cleaned up, it will be perfect.

I can't wait to see the reveal!

So happy for you!!! I hope everything goes well and you CAN unpack and get things back to normal! Can't wait for the "After" pix!!

I turned around 3 times and spit over my left shoulder so you would not be jinxed!! Many happy returns to your kitchen!

I am keeping my fingers crossed for you that this is all over! Also, I've known one or two cats in my time, and I'm guessing that nothing is going to top the cardboard box wonder of the Kitty Kat Klubhouze for them.
