Whatcha been up to?

About 5'7".

John and I have been working on getting the hood in for the last two days. Add to that the 4 days my dad and I spent putting in drywall and electrical and building a wall brace for the hood. So, 6 days for the hood. While my stove sat on the back porch.

We're not quite done. We have some moulding for the top of the beadboard paneling and we're waiting on delivery of the flue extension. Our crazy inverted hood makes our ceilings around nine feet instead of the standard eight feet.

And there's so much more. We haven't even beadboarded the rest of the kitchen. Since I wanted my stove back, we just paneled until the wall was covered enough to install the hood. And then I'm spending next week painting the ceiling and stuff.

I haven't eaten any lunch so I'm not very hilarious. And I'm exhausted from all the painting and thinking. On the plus side, I discovered that the B52's Pandora station is one of the few musical situations my husband and I agree on. I guess that makes us Blondie and The Cure.

OHMY. Your kitchen is going to be amazing. I can't believe all the work you guys have been able to accomplish already.

I really will buy you all the lattes you want if you'll just come to SC for a week.

I like how your to-do list is adjacent to your to-dos!
