Cabinet Mania II

Each day that Utz and Richard are here, things change considerably. Yesterday, it was good to see Utz before he left for the day.

The cabinets look fantastic. I couldn't help but grin as I inspected his work. The men are marvels! That takes talent to do this kind of work. I certainly lack that!

Dwane will go out tomorrow with them to get the rest of the stuff to get this place together. Sorry I didn't take any pictures of the progress.

One of the cabinet doors were wrong which means Dwane and the guys will have to go back to Home Depot and get a replacement. Hope they have it in stock. Rotten when you have to travel even further just for a door.

Our Buddy Is Coming Home!

Seems like forever since we last saw you, but with the good news that your mother is returning to AZ to retrieve you makes us all happy!

Don't be bitter about all this. It really won't last forever. You'll be back and with us again. This time, for good, right?

We sure missed you.

Cabinet Mania

It starts today. I've got a bunch of cabinets to empty before Utz can start with their demolition. He said he won't be here till around 10am. Good, I can relax for now. It's almost 7am and I can relax till 8 to start the job. So much for a 3-day weekend.

Cabinets and Court Drama

With my buddy and his mother dealing with the donor on who should be the real parent, Dwane and I have a major project going with kitchen cabinets. Funny how in spite of life's big dramas, you still have to deal with small things, like when are the contractors coming? Do I have time to clean out the old cabinets before they are torn apart?

What will Tom say??? Does he know about this? Will he care? I hope he likes it! I'm so excited! New cabinets! Yipeeee! God. I need a sound proof room so I can let off steam by belching out a primordial scream.

The cabinets came today. Curb side delivery. My God. Heavy stuff. My back will never be the same.

Utz, the contractor, came by to measure the kitchen. Short guy, really nice and speaks with a slight German accent. Dwane actually couldn't get a word in. Stunning!

Oh, did I mention this is an anniversary date? I left the island 39 years ago today.
