My Kitchen Died.

Actually it was brutally murdered today. And it was awesome. If I could dance and sing "I'm gettin' a new kitchen!!" and type at the same time, I would. I am a pretty talented gal, but we'll have to draw the line there. Aaron and a friend of his demo'd most of the kitchen today and we (and by "we", I mean "they") will be taking up our atrocious tile floor tomorrow. I cannot wait to see that stuff go. The previous owners did a horrible job of tiling and didn't even remove the base boards prior to putting the new tile in. The guys tried to take it up today, but blood was shed, so it was decided to get new tools and try again at 8 am tomorrow.

While they have kitchen duty I have kid duty. I have two veeeerrrry curious toddlers who would love nothing more than to yield a hammer with daddy, so we'll probably fly the coop tomorrow. Thrifting, maybe? I need to get some things for Handmade Parade, and tomorrow is as good a time as any, right? I tried to slip out today and go, but would you believe that at 2:00 on a Friday afternoon I couldn't get parking? Crazy.

Well, there it is, my naked cold kitchen. hee hee! I am giddy with future kitchen excitement! This wall was where the fridge, some cabinents and the stove used to reside. We aren't doing a major overhaul, we are putting a new stove and cabinets where the old ones were. Just younger, faster models. :) Couldn't get Aaron to go for a new fridge, though. Bummer.
