Never dreamed it would be so difficult...


We start a major kitchen gutting and redo on Monday. It is well-needed. Many reasons why, one being it's about 40 years old. Second, and most important, I have no *electric* dishwasher. Enough said.

I had to choose laminate for the countertops this week.

Number of collected laminate chips that "might work"= 23
Number of laminate chips we narrowed it down to = 8
Number of trips to Lowe's = 3
Choosing the PERFECT one = priceless...

However, I chose what I thought was the perfect one to be told by my contractor that no, we had to use Wilsonart, not Formica.

Excuse me?!?!?!?

Here's where I spare you my temper tantrum and go to the gym to work out for the SECOND time today (I burned 500 calories today, more cookies for me).

If this is how it's going to be, maybe I need to hire my family to wash the dishes...

Hang on for the ride...photos will be coming!

Sorry to hear it's off to a rough start, but I'm so excited for you!! You are going to LOVE being able to bake again- maybe we can try out the new oven on some Christmas cookies?? I still wish we could have had a demolition party:)
