Its been a while!

I have been so busy working around the house this past week. There is something great about being at the end of your 2nd trimester. You get all this wonderful energy. I got a wild hair last Tuesday and have been at it ever sense.

I decided that it was time to do something with the kitchen. We really have been ignoring it because one of these days we are taring that aweful addition off of the house and rebuilding a (matching) two story addition, complete with new kitchen. The problem is, that is another two years down the road at this point!

There is also that little incident we had a while back where the kitchen caught on fire, that has been very apparent every sense. So I got to work and my kitchen went from this:






To This:


Yes, we are still missing a cabinet door somewhere in the garage, need to get out there and find it. But it has been really nice having it look half way decent again. The whole kitchen got a fresh coat of paint and I sewed curtains for all the lower cabinets and windows. Everything is fresh and clean.

I am now building 2 sets of triple bunkbeds for the boys room. I will post pictures of that when we are finished, hopefully on Wed.

I WAS BEGINNING TO WONDER ABOUT YOU DOWN THERE. GLAD EVERYTHING IS OK. I LOVED GOING THROUGH THE WHOLE NESTING THING WHEN I WAS PREGGERS. I THINK YOUR BODY KNOWS THAT THERE WILL BE NO TIME FOR A WHILE AFTER THE BABY COMES SO IT KICKS YOU INTO HIGH GEAR. I LOVE BEING ABLE TO SEW--IT HAS SAVED ME SO MUCH MONEY AND I GET THE RESULTS I WANT AND NOT HAVE TO SETTLE WITH SOMETHING OUT OF THE STORE. I THINK YOUR KITCHEN LOOKS WONDERFUL. I AM NOT A PERFECT SEAMSTRESS BUT I DO GET BETTER WITH EACH THING I SEW. ITS DEFINATELY A WOMAN THING--WE GET TIRED OF LOOKING AT SOMETHING WE ARE NOT HAPPY WITH AND WE JUST DO IT.WHEN WE WERE DOING THE BULK OF OUR REMODELING EV TOLD PEOPLE HE TRIED TO GUESS WHICH WALL WOULD BE TORN DOWN THIS TIME WHEN HE GOT HOME. NOW THERE IS ONLY ONE MORE TO GO WHEN WE DO THE BATHROOM.

Can you and Rob come to my house for a weekend? Bring all your kids and tools. (hee hee) Wow, I cannot believe how much you got done in that short time in your kitchen! It looks beautiful! You will have to put all of your house building and pictures (before/after) in some magazine. Awesome work.

I am so glad you are feeling better. The kitchen looks fantastic!! Amazing what a new coat of paint and some handmade curtains can do isn't it. I love the look and you did a great job.\
