The Humpty Dumpty rhyme keeps running through my head . . .
Will we be able to put Humpty together again?
Here's the china cabinet in two pieces, resting in front of the fireplace . . .
Coat closet door has been removed . . . we should've moved the coats first . . . oh, well . . .
And when we removed some of the molding in the kitchen, we found a hole . . . Now how on earth does that happen . . . ? What, did they run out of dry wall . . . ? Was that a mouse's attempt to get inside . . . ? Argh! Add this to the repair list . . .
My husband pulled the cabinet off the wall so the contractor can add wood flooring underneath the cabinet instead of butting up the new floor against the old cabinet. We won't need any quarter round trim at the bottom, but now we have to repair the wall . . . And did I mention that we are also getting a new stove?
The "may-as-well" syndrome is alive and well at our house. Our existing stove came with the house and we would have been replacing it within a year or two anyway. We just moved up the timeline a little. I'm very excited to start shopping for a new stove! Every stove I've ever owned has come with the house! This is going to be fun!
I'm trying to stay positive in the midst of this chaos. I keep reminding myself of the six months that it took to remodel the 2nd floor bathroom. A month-and-a-half for beautiful new floors and a new stove . . . ? Piece of cake!
