Kitchen Confidential

I seem to be getting the messy work of my life done all at once, which is a blessing in its own way. I’ve been undergoing a root canal procedure and, after several uncomfortable trips to the dentist, finally have my crown in place. I’m happy to be able to chew again without pain!

Our long-awaited kitchen renovation also started this week. The demolition team has been here and gone. We had two days of banging and plaster dust that got out despite layers and layers of plastic over the doors. Now we’re down to the occasional sounds of an electric drill as the carpenter frames the room. Sheetrock next, I hope!

Day one of our unexpected kitchen remodel. Plumbers en route to knock out wall and replace main pipeline. It’s an amazingly small pipe, but one that’s going to be difficult to get to.

More later. Taking advantage of the fact that I can still pee at home and wash my hands in hot water. After today? Who knows?
