I have come to really dislike Tuesdays! It seems weird things happen. I got in a small accident on a Tuesday 2 months ago, I was sick with the stomach flu 2 weeks ago and today I am battling a bad bout of mastitis. Not very fun. Today my mind has been wandering in my hallucination state. I am so grateful for a lot of things! I know Thanksgiving is still awhile away, but I am so grateful for modern medicine. I could be dead if I wasn't on antibiotics! I don't want to be dead. I'm also so grateful for my wonderful husband who took over all the duties of mom and dad today. He is playing Monopoly Jr. with the boys. I know, he's starting them early! Gus loves Monopoly and has a collection! I'm also grateful for Egyptian cotton sheets because they make being in bed all day almost bearable! I know I'm rambling now, so I'll stop.

Okay Heidi, you are the most impatient person I know...scratch that, the 2nd most impatient person I know (I'm the first). After a long time of planning and saving our tax return money, we finally redid our kitchen. It was actually out of necessity since my old sink faucet eroded and started leaking. We didn't go all out, but we did replace the counter tops, sink, floor and cabinet doors that were costume built by my brother-in-law, Jory. We added counter space on the other side of the fridge and got rid of our light pergo that showed everything! Here are some before and after shots:

I had to do a close-up of the doors. They are wonderful. My most favorite thing about my kitchen now is my new sink. I love it. It is so roomy and wonderful. We want a new fridge and stove, but that will have to wait until we have the money to replace the old ones. Thanks to everyone who made this possible (mostly Gus and Jory and Heidi for painting!!)
