Are We There Yet?

Monday, May 16, 2011

There are two sides to this question.
If you're a child, it probably means your bored. You're tired of being in the car, gotta do something besides sit and just can't take one more second of the car ride.
If your the parent, it means...'If I hear that question one more time I will scream,' 'We can't get there fast enough,' 'Who thought this would be fun,' and 'I'll never do this again.'
Even though there are two sides, the outcome is the same. Both sides just want to get it over with right now.
Let me say that we have been redoing our kitchen for the last month (is that all ?) and I gotta ask... 'ARE WE THERE YET?'


It's like a root canal that goes on and on.
First we had workman tearing out, sanding and drywalling. It looked like the first snow of the season right in my kitchen. After they left the sanding of the cabinets the words desert sand mean anything?
Being an interior designer I can't do simple- I want some texture on the walls, so we spent last Saturday putting mud on the walls and I followed with a whisk broom to make the pattern.
As I write this the droan of a shop vac...well, let me just say I thought something really cold was the only thing that caused brain freeze! This was suppose to be done a couple of weeks ago, but we all know that never happens.
I guess I can try to find the positive side to all of this. We only have to paint the walls, paint the cabinets, install the new countertops, install the new flooring, new lighting, not to mention the window treatment s, appliances, sink and faucets left.
Thinking about all of this I only have one question...

I feel your pain. In 2005 we gutted 5 rooms on the main floor of our home (down to studs and subfloor). I packed away the Cuisinart and replaced it with a garage sale toaster oven for 5 months. It was a magnificent sacrifice. You will see the light at the end of the tunnel and know you are there.
