The weekend has been one for the record books! Mike has been working non-stop on the kitchen project.
It’s so close to being done, but there was a glitch and for those of you who know me, you’ll not be
that it was my fault! Remember, I had the appliances delivered on Sunday, not really knowing where Mike
would be in this process. Turns out, not the best idea! Who knew?
Let’s say the installation of the appliances, namely the dishwasher, stopped the Husband dead in his
tracks for … well a long time. He was cursing the Germans for making the “connections” the way they did. I
took it on myself to inform him that it was in fact the Koreans who make LG products. Turns out, he does not care.
Anita and Gitz will be happy to know that I dug out my pom-poms and stood in the kitchen shouting his
praise and doing hurkeys all the while he was on the floor struggling with the (D_ _ _ )Dishwasher.(We
give everything pet names around here, I’m sorry to say this is most likely what the dishwasher will be
called hence forth and forever more)
Anyhoo, in my enthusiastic cheer, I reminded him of all the great projects he’s done at Tasmanian Devil speed…
Will you indulge me for just a moment?
(The following ideas were mine, they came to me during “the witching hour”. This is the hour of the
day when I have just the right amount of caffine pumping through my veins and I get these
amazing ideas for The Husband to do! )
He put up this paneling in our bathroom, the
guestroom and guest bathroom. I saw it in a really old house and loved the look!
He built me this wall of bookshelves! I collect old books!Also did the hardwood floors in the entire
He built a mantle around the fireplace in the bedroom!(I know there are only 5 days, living here in the deep
South, that one really needs a fireplace, but I turn the air-conditioner on and pretend!)
He refinished the kitchen cabinets! They were oak before. (Notice, shinny new microwave!!! I’m happy to
report that the Koreans did a stellar job with the installation process on the micro.)
Okay, now this is fun. One Saturday morning, during the “witching hour”, I said this:
“Hey why dont we take down the wall between the den and the office so it’s more open?” I then
left for the grocery store. When I got home I found The Husband, sledge hammer in hand, tearing down
the wall between the den and the office! Turns out he loves demolition!
The weekend after our oldest daughter Bethany moved out…wham, bam…the wall between our bedroom
and Bethany’s bedroom was down. We wanted a little sitting room !
I could go on, but I’ll end with this:
Gimme a M-I-K-E!!!!!
