4 degrees and getting ready

Getting ready for the remodel.

It has taken a long while, but the insurance company has finally approved our claim and, as they say, “the check is in the mail”.

I’m excited.

The contractor pointed me towards the local store with affordable kitchen cabinets. And after collecting over three dozen little flooring samples from the box stores and having no luck finding what we wanted, we have fallen in love with a flooring product carried by the flooring store in town.

So at last that particular stress is over, I think. We still have one more place to shop and then we’ll decide once and for all.

I just ordered see-through plastic bags from Amazon. And I have 25 banker’s boxes waiting to be filled. The contractor said he and his crew would pack everything up themselves, but I would really rather do it myself.

It’s only four degrees this morning, which isn’t bad considering what the folks in the upper Midwest are experiencing. It’s a good day to stay home and pack up most of my kitchen.

The china pantry alone is the stuff of nightmares.

But first, I need to pin this little quilt and get it off the dining room table.

My b-i-l GL is arriving tomorrow morning for a long weekend of basement projects, brother time, gatherings with friends and the Superbowl.

I’ve been so excited about his visit. It’s a long time since August. We have such fun together in the summer and I miss him. As does Banjo Man, though they talk on the phone all the time.

Take a good look at this picture. Things are going to change very soon!

    Wonderful…you’ll love your new kitchen, and I can’t wait to see it. Just a word of advice. Keep extra flooring for the off chance that another leak or some other catastrophe occurs. I’m trying to match up tile in my new closet for a corner that was exposed in the renovation. Of course the tile has been discontinued. Love to you.
