A Confession of sorts...
Moving on to the kitchen. Actually, we're not moving on... we are just continuing. We have so much work to do in this house. Those of you who happen to visit me on a semi-regular basis, will soon figure out I live in a complete continuous construction area. There is a never ending supply of things to do.
These are pics of my kitchen as it is and has been for a very long time. However, I would just like to offer the fact that before April 2007, my husband was a self-employed Heating/Plumbing/Air Conditioning/Bathroom Remodeling guy. He was hardly home. Now that he has a "regular" full time job, it's 2 and 1/2 hours away. He lives 5 days out of 7 with his brother down near Philadelphia. So.. he's actually home less now than when he actually lived here. But... God has been faithful in taking care of us. Anyhow... I have been very hesitant to share pictures of my home with those of you I know because you all have such gorgeous homes... and I feel silly putting pics of my home on my blog... actually, a better word would be embarrassed. Anyhow... I've decided to share our construction woes and hopefully accomplishments. Sometimes, with our lives, we find that something is definitely more pressing on the priority list than what we might be currently working on. With a house that was built in 1840-something, there is always something to fix, take care of, repair, alter, update... and I've decided to swallow my pride and show what's really going on in my life. Not everyone lives in a picture perfect house in reality. Especially me! :) Thank you in advance for your kind understanding.
So, the past two weekends were spent relocating our basement door from off the "sunroom" that the hubs worked on this past summer. I have pics, but I need to transfer them my computer. Now that this is complete, we can start making the kitchen of my dreams. My husband has great creative ideas for these things. He will walk around a room in the house with a pad of paper, pencil and a tape measure. He comes up with such fantastic ideas, great use of space, and trying to keep the integrity of our house in tact. I'm so thankful for his many talents. We could NEVER afford to pay someone else to do this stuff for us... so we are very thankful that God has given him the desire and ability to do what needs to be done. We joke with each other that by the time we die, the house just might be the way we want it.
Well, I've revealed much today about myself... that I have been very ashamed to share with you all... but I realized that keeping it real is very important. I need to keep it real.
Hugs, and good night...
