kitchen update

in case you've been wondering about the kitchen, no it's not done. people keep asking me that, and it's a little like being asked if you've had the baby yet when you're close to nine months pregnant. annoying. (to clarify, the people asking aren't my blogging friends, just random people - and now that i'm rereading this, it sounds pretty accusatory. really, i'm the one who's frustrated that it's not done, and that's why it sounds mean, because i wish it were done already.)

anyway - i'm still tiling, which i started last tuesday. i'm close to being done, which i'm glad about. it was pretty stressful this weekend when dan was gone thursday night through sunday morning. everyone else is having barbecues for pioneer day and i'm hiring a babysitter so i can tile. fun. i think i'm going to wait to show you a picture because it will just look so much better when it's done. i'm excited - it's starting to look REALLY nice! and i cannot wait to make some real food in the new kitchen! (still a few more weeks i think). i'm SO sick of fast food/freezer food. and the grill isn't working. if i weren't so stressed out i probably would have gained 15 pounds by now. (this is your cue to pile on the encouraging words.)

Well, I have been totally thinking about your kitchen (for real) and wondering what's going on. But I'm pretty sure I haven't asked. :) I'm so excited to see the final thing. So excited, in fact, that the next time we're in your neck of the woods, I'd love to see it in person. How do you feel about people inviting themselves over?
Really... you're inspirational to people like me who NEED a kitchen makeover, but probably won't ever do it.

Go Leigh Go Leigh! How's that for encouragement?

Honestly though, the kitchen is looking awesome. Only 100 hours left of work to go--just kidding.

So are you planning a party for when its done?

Leigh, do you want to come over on Thursday for dinner? You're cooking, of course. Hey! You said you couldn't wait to cook "real food" again! Seriously, though, if you guys would like to come over on Thursday, it'd be fun. I don't have a grill so it'd have to be kitchen stuff. Email me.
