what we are down to after all we've been up to...or...they were out of two tickets to paradise so we booked the last two to crazy town





a few remodel pics. bottom pic is of dish having a very bad time under the kitchen in a small hidey hole, doing some ductwork and whatnot. it may as well have been a poison oak patch. was itchy for days under there with all that ancient insulation. top pic is our new stove. it's pretty pathetic. takes like 10 minutes just to boil water in the kettle. Kind of funny though. actually, right now, everything is kind of funny. I think we are at that point where everything is so ridiculous that the only way to survive is to find the humor in all of this. kind of like last weekend when I left for a meeting and when I came home most of the wall was gone (see lower left pic). (Love you mames:) but, we did fix it and it is actually working out for the better now. Papa dish came up and between the three of us ((mostly he and amy). I am basically just here to hammer:) we figured it out. the framed area is going to be where our open shelving is going. nice , eh? looks like someone knew his way around a hammer (and most of a box of 16 penny nails). Last two pics are insulation (save the formaldehyde for science class kiddies!) and mames' super sweet support frame/box/stair extravaganza for the shelving to rest on. She's kind of a genius lady, which is excellent, because I am indeed, not (a genius...I would think that by lock of chest hair struggling to climb out of my shirt in above pic, you would figure out the lady part on your own.)
