Light at the end of the tunnel?

Our long national nightmare may finally be over. No, not the Bush presidency and the war in Iraq. That's going to be around for a while, I'm afraid.

I'm talking about something even more soul draining: the kitchen renovation from hell – oy! (TM).

The cabinets went in two weeks ago, the new appliances came last week, and the floor is being done today. I'm going to wait a while to do the counter top, because, frankly, I just don't have the energy to deal with it. I seriously don't know how people have the patience to renovate an entire suburban house. I'm exhausted just from my little Manhattan kitchen, and, needless to say, I didn't even personally pick up a goddamn hammer the entire time.

Actually, my friends may be even happier about this than I am. First, they won't have to hear me bitch about this project any more. And, second, I have just placed an order for yummy Omaha steaks, as I had let my freezer get depleted in preparation for the appliance switch over. Soon, a select few of the carnivorous and greedy will be individually invited over (I don't do dinner parties well) for a delightful home-cooked filet mignon - if they play their cards right.

And sorry, Veganerd and all you other vegans out there – I know I'm being incredibly weak and hypocritical when it comes to my animal-loving, yet red meat-eating ways. I'm trying to work on it. This is my last Omaha order.

Er, probably.

Thank you.

lol it doesnt matter how small the space is, whenever you get involved with a renovation it can't help but become a nightmare - things lead to other things, it never goes as the contractor promised, and before you know it you're going nuts. Good luck with it though!

Ahh veganerd, I like the way you operate with these meat eaters, that subtle yet not too overbearing guilt. Salut! :)

I wish I had a kitchen I could renovate. The closest we can come to renovating in our rented apartment is painting the walls.

Not a Hipster wait until you stop renting and get your own place, which you will one day, you will love having a kitchen that belongs to you and you can make it any way you want! Any time we have a party, the kitchen is where everyone meets so I think we actually spent more on the kitchen than on our living room which actually didn't need much work but the kitchen did! :)
