Did You Know??

So, did you know that walls in houses are sometimes not straight, especially walls in older homes? And in addition to being not straight, one wall may not meet squarely with the wall next to it, and when you are putting cabinets on those walls that have to align precisely with each other in a corner, it's kind of a problem when the walls are not straight. Well, they aren't, and it is. So... let's just say that we've hit a little snag and Rob our awesome contractor (and my buddy since high school days - that's more than 30 years but who's counting??) has to do a bit of tweaking to get the last of the cabinets installed. Then the counter top man can come and take his final measurements, and so on... and someday soon we will have a lovely new kitchen!

Ah, the fun continues. But as I told a friend today, considering all that is going on in the world, living for a few weeks without a kitchen is really not a big deal. Life is good!
