What have I done?

Well after 5 years of living in a kitchen where you don't want to pass anyone other than your spouse because your going to rub against them, living with a kitchen where you can't open the oven all the way because it hits the fridge, so your get ready to get burned while taking out a pan of cookies, living with a kitchen where you sent the first fridge back because it didn't fit, and then getting the special more expensive counter top depth fridge delivered to only find out it doesn't fit either, living with a kitchen where your wife gave your brother in-law permission to cut the cabinet and counter top to fit that special expensive fridge, and then you have to go back and butcher them even more to force the fridge in the hole, living in a kitchen where after you butchered the cabinets and counter top to fit the fridge you still then have to jam the fridge in the hole, and then not be able to put molding back on the wall because the fridge door doesn't open when you do, living in a kitchen where opening the drawer next to the stove is like a puzzle -you can get it open after first opening the oven door and then pushing the drawer to the right to miss the burner knobs- living in a kitchen where you are in hurry to get something out of that same drawer and didn't realize that when you opened that drawer you accidentally hit the knob that turns on the lager gas burner just enough to cause a gas leak that goes all night until you wake up in the morning with a head ache and an explosive house, living in a kitchen where if your 4ft tall its nice because they only left you 12 inches between the counter top and upper cabinets so you have to do everything on the edge of the counter top WE ARE DONE!!! We have officially started the dreaded kitchen project. That is not to be confused with the basement project, laundry room project, backyard playground project, or family room project. But this is by far the messiest, craziest, most rewarding project of them all. Doesn't Erica have the best hubby in the world! I say yes!

Wow Dustin! You are awesome! Just one question. Where are you eating? I'd invite you over for food, but we are kind of far.

Hey Whitney and Ryan, I wish you were next door still so we could overtake your kitchen! When we re-did the basement, we made a little "wet bar" area that had tile and got it plumbed for a future small kitchen. So we moved the cabinet and sink and dishwasher temporarily down there. We have the fridge still upstairs plugged in, so we are only minus a stove. Kind of inconvenient, BUT well worth it in the end. Patience is not my strong point, but I am holding up :)

It will be sooooo worth it... Not a fun project... However, something you will enjoy forever!
