Oh Boy!

I'm gettin' a dishwasher, I'm gettin' a dishwasher, oh yeah! Can you hear me singing at the top of my lungs? I am super happy. In order to get said dishwasher are in the midst of a kitchen remodel. By remodel I mean I have a fridge in my dining room. Nothing but walls and a subfloor in my kitchen and I am washing sippy cups in the mop sink. Nice!
We have lived here for 4 years and washed every dish by hand. Except when our family comes and visits, they always help us with the dishes! Oh the bottles! Kelly and I always say, "Everybody loves a martyr!" and that is me with the bottles. Wait until the last baby finishes with bottles to get a dishwasher! Can you say "martyr"?
Nah, it just worked out that way!
Tuesday they came and tore out the cabinets and floor. Yesterday they cut a new door from the kitchen into the hall. Demo is some loud business. They then sealed up the one that was there. The new door is 5 feet 7 inches farther down than the other door. That makes room for more cabinets. I NEED cabinets because I only had 4; 1 on top, 1 on bottom 1 above the stove and 1 below the sink.
We have survived that. Allen is going to tile the floor this weekend, and I am going to prime and paint.
So where does that leave the Bug and the Butterbean? In hog heaven. They are going to stay with Allen's parents in N.C. for a few days. We will miss them, but know that they are having a ball there- and they will be much safer there.
Keep your fingers crossed that they will be able to install cabinets next week.
I know I promised mystery pictures, but I can't get my pictures downloaded.
Sorry there are no pictures on this post, but it is either post without pictures or not post at all. Always thinking of my audience!
I'm gettin' a dishwasher! I'm gettin' a pantry! I'm gettin a disposal! I'm gettin' cabinets! Oh yeah!

  1. Take pictures even if they do not download. I love the progress to big reveal. I can not believe you went through two kids with bottles with no dishwasher. Your poor hands.

    I found the chalkboard decals at Marshalls. Totally random. They are made by Wallies. The price at Marshalls was similar to online. Not at huge deal like I hoped. I think it was $6 for 2 sheets. They really are awesome.
