I once heard someone say that the kitchen holds the most stuff and is the hardest to pack. After this week I agree. A few posts ago I wrote that we were remodeling out kitchen. Well, last week our contractor called and said he would be here tomorrow at 9:30 to start. That meant I had one week to empty out all of the cabinets and drawers, clean off the top of the counters, and get everything off the walls. I also had appointments I had to keep, as well as do the regular weekly things around the house such as cut the grass.
Well, I finally finished an hour ago. Wasn’t sure I really felt like writing anything, posting it, and then commenting, but I also felt like Tuesday wouldn’t be complete unless I did. So here is a short summary of what has been happening.
A week and a half ago I got a call from the cabinet company. Our cabinets were ready and they would be delivered in two days. That meant cleaning out the dining room to make room for them.
Aren’t they lovely?
I must say the Ned and Molly really like them.
On to packing. I had our grocery store save boxes for me and they were real good about doing so. I got around 40 boxes from them and used every single one. If you were to look at our living room right now, I am not showing a picture, you would think two hoarders lived in this house.
I did have help packing so things did go quickly. The utensil drawer was a snap to pack with some help.
The empty drawer also makes a good place to do some personal cleaning.
We did get it cleaned.
Onto the top cabinets. It took some doing, but i got them emptied. I labeled the boxes so I would know what was in them and put them in places where I hope I can find what I need when I need it.
Our kitchen right now looks like Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard. Even Dustin couldn’t find anything.
Ned didn’t have much luck either.
Will they survive this remodel? Will we survive this remodel? Update next Tuesday.
