Five months. One trillion hours of blood, sweat, and tears. Two million nervous breakdowns. And we’re not finished yet!
I WANT A NEW HOUSE! A house that never falls apart, a house that is gentle and kind to old people, a house that doesn’t suck my blood till I’m dead!
Five months ago, we began stripping up carpet and laying vinyl plank flooring. Got three more rooms to go. Hey! We’re retired. We’re not punching a time-clock. Besides, my compulsive madness gets in the way of progress, which, hubby doesn’t mind except for when it involves more work for him. And it always involves more work for him. Sorry, hubby.
Three weeks ago, I stripped and painted my kitchen cabinets. Took me a week to complete. All hubby has to do now is hang the doors.
Piece of cake.
Nothing is ever that simple for the man of our house! He’s been working on those doors all week long and ain’t got them hung yet. Who knew that installing new handles and hidden hinges would take longer than building a house??
Today. Before the sun goes down and the world goes to sleep, those cabinet doors better be hung!
I posted the above on Facebook three sundown’s ago, and I’m still waiting to see the end results.
The next time, which there will NEVER be a next time, we’ll install new kitchen cabinets. That would be a lot less stressful and a whole lot less time-consuming.
1. We’re old
2. Didn’t know what we were doing
3. Bought the wrong type of hidden hinges for our cabinets
4. Exchanged them for a different type
5. They didn’t work, either
1. Nailed blocks inside the cabinets
2. Re-aligned the doors. Again. And again
Today. Before sundown. I WANT THOSE DOORS
