Adventures in remodeling

The new kitchen countertops were installed yesterday and I must say they look lovely.

Our old countertops were installed so poorly by the nimrods who sold us this house that our new dishwasher wouldn't fit. I've learned since that the standard is that countertops are 35" from the floor. Our old ones were 33 5/8".

So, what started as "we need a new dishwasher because the old one sucks and the racks are rusting through" has turned into something quite different. The new dishwasher will be installed Monday.

Now I've noticed that the kitchen floor doesn't match. And I've always hated the lighting ...

To be continued.

Wild, brilliant ...

Your Hair Should Be Blue

Wild, brilliant, and out of control.

You're a risk taker with an eye to the future.

The nightmare

I woke myself up screaming last night.

In my dream, as I entered my darkened hotel room and crossed over to the window to open the drapes my hand grazed the unmade bed and touched someone (or some THING) lying there.
