I think this pregnancy will forever be measured by the kitchen. To Sean’s credit, we were only without running water for 18 hours. Not exactly riveting reading material, but this has been my life since November. Tomorrow we’ll paint the walls and install the switch plates. Next up- plywood counter tops being replaced with concrete and exposed wires being traded for lighting fixtures. After that is done we’ll be installing a stone back splash. Then the plan is to take a break…or, if I have my way, fence the side yard, bust through the east side of the house and create a private oasis away from the prying eyes of our shrewish neighbor.
