I started blogging so that my family could see my children and keep up with as they grow. I love to sew and used to blog about that here on occasion. Now, I blog about my creations at miymdiary.blogspot.com with a friend. Stay here for to read about my family and visit the other blog for more on sewing!

Kitchen remodel update





The kitchen is coming along. You can see the beautiful tile job my dad did. I helped grout. I am no expert. Morgan helped cut tile. Thanks bro! It was nice to spend time with Dad, Morgan, and Anna while they were here. It was a short stay and Dad worked the whole time. Maybe next time we will be able to relax and spend time together. We did get to bond over grouting. :) The cabinets are all installed now. You can see we still have to paint the last upper cabinet. It was installed on Sunday. We have the beginnings of a counter. The edging should be in Tuesday or Wednesday. Hopefully by the end of the weekend we will have the counter completely finished. Then doors and drawers for the cabinets. The sink is being plumbed as I type. Yay! Running water! No more washing dishes in the disgusting bathroom. We have all the trim and beadboard sitting in the dining room waiting to go up. Hopefully over the next week and 1/2 we will get that all done. Still have to finish mudding the walls and then paint. Things have been stacked in front of the walls, so I haven't been able to get to that. But now that the cabinets are not on the floor, I can move the moulding out of the way. I am so excited to get it all done. Hopefully the next pics will be of a completed kitchen.
