Shiny and New!

It's almost finished.

Maybe you didn't hear me. I said, IT'S ALMOST FINISHED!
Somebody pinch me.

It's so close, I can almost taste it. It's really happening. After all these months, I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I have some "snippet" photos for you. You didn't really think I was going to show you the entire kitchen yet, did you??? I'm saving the big reveal for when it's completely finished. (God will be in our lifetime.) But all in's really moving along.

My floor is finished.

My cabinets are installed.

And today, on the eve of an east coast Blizzard, my shiny new stainless appliances were delivered.

My new granite countertops are being installed next Wednesday and all of the kitchen sink plumbing will be hooked up by next Sunday. Notice how I have suddenly taken personal possession of the components of this renovation. "My" floor..."my cabinets". It's not totally unlike someone talking about their child, is it? All I know is after this renovation, I've earned the ownership rights to all of it. I feel like I sweated through a couple of months of labor and today I pushed out a gargantuan, beautiful stainless steel side-by-side refrigerator.

I think I'll name him Perry.
