Happy 4th of July!

Things that make me happy: WE HAVE COUNTERTOPS! We also have running water in our kitchen and a dishwasher (installed after we took this pic - and the doors for the cabinets over the sink have also finally been installed). It's been so long since we had running water in our kitchen (April 14th, to be exact) that I keep forgetting and going into our bath to wash my hands.

But, since nothing is ever perfect or easy they cut one countertop section waaaaay too short (technically I referred to it as "doo-doo" to the Arabic guys who didn't speak much English) so they're going to have to redo it. But luckily it wasn't attached to the all important sink. And hopefully by the end of TODAY we will have our gas cooktop hooked up and can REALLY cook again!! It was incredibly strange using real plates, real silverware and real glasses yesterday.

We still have to install our baseboards and counterround, patch some scratches/holes the contractors have made and put in some door trim we rescued from a dumpster. But, we're getting SO much closer to being finished. I can almost taste pasta boiling......(if I can even remember how to do it!)

Happy 4th of July everyone!! Enjoy the holiday! Hopefully we can catch the downtown fireworks for the first time ever. We'll be able to hear them from our house, but our neighbor's massive house blocks our skyline view so we'll wander down closer to the festivities.

Beautiful, Rae!

My Mom had her kitchen rebuilt and they cut the hole for the sink too big, so they were just going to fill the big gap with caulk! Mom had to explain to them why that was pretty much the stupidest idea ever. Recut the whole counter to fix it.

Nice work, and running water in the kitchen sink!

BTW, congrats on the 5K, wow, your time is so speedy. Today I really earned it running a Revolutionary Run 5K with Shoreturtle..a good 10 mins after your time, though!
