Kitchen Remodel Part 1

It seems as thought since we bought this house, almost 13 years ago, we have been working on this house. And a couple of months ago Hubby asked which room I want to do next. I replied, “Selfishly, the kitchen!” He was flabbergasted that I would even suggest the kitchen, especially since we want to add a 2nd bathroom, and we need to do some minor work in the bedrooms. With adding a bathroom we would have to move the utility room, which would mean adding a room to the house.

Fast forward a couple for months, I am out of town and hubby has to cook in the kitchen for the kiddos. Being as this is a rare occasion, me being away and hubby cooking, he was surprised with how dysfunctional our kitchen is. I came home and he started complaining explaining to me about why our kitchen doesn’t work. There is no counter space, it is to hot, on and on. Needless to say the kitchen was the next project we started!

Did I forget to tell you that the roof had started leaking??

That helped to start this project off to quick start!

And ended up with this:IMG_1031

WOW, look how big it looks!!!

Still a work in progress, but we no longer have a leaky roof, but the insulation and drywalls not up either. Between hubby working full time, going to school full time there isn’t much time left over. But we enjoy working together and hopefully my Christmas present will be a completed Kitchen!!

 

Do you have any home improvements going on? Would love to hear about them.

Wishing you many Blessings Rainbow

This is the Stuff

MUSIC MONDAY

This is the stuff by FRANCESCA BATTISTELLI

Here is a little music to get your Monday morning started.

 

So break me of impatience
Conquer my frustrations
I’ve got a new appreciation
It’s not the end of the world

Chaos!!

So it’s been a bit quite around here! Did you miss me?? Well I missed you all! Things around here got a bit crazy and yeah maybe I should have blogged about it as it was happening but really my head is just now clearing the water. 

So first thing, I wasn’t able to attend the mission’s trip to Australia and that was one of the main reason everything got crazy around here. As the date for me grew closer more and more pilled up around here. Our AC went out! No AC in Florida in the month of July is NOT advisable. Hubby’s tires went flat and needed to be replaced. The roof in the kitchen started leaking, (more about that in another post). And the start of CC (another post also) was looming in the background.

I remember sitting in my darkened bedroom, praying for answers and I remembered that God is not a God of confusion and there was a ton of confusion going on in my life. It was a hard decision to make about not going to Australia. I kept thinking: I got this, I can do this, if I juggle this and that, it will all work out! Needless to say once I faced the facts I realized how much I had dropped the ball. This blog wasn’t the only thing that suffered. But over that last couple of weeks I have plugged away at getting everything back on track.
