Umm...My Kitchen Or Lack Of

Needless to say I would NEVER suggest anyone have major construction done while trying to heal from major surgery and a life changing event ...and on pain medication. Now you may be asking yourself how I know that ....ummm...cause we were in the middle of having some repair work done in our kitchen before any of my medical issues were found.

Our kitchen was damaged earlier this year when there was a major foundation leak. Insurance has helped up with the re plumbing of the pipes . This meant we had to have the kitchen floor jack hammered up and a repair done. So this leak caused major issues that had to be dealt with. Plus the house was built in 1954.

Would you like to see what I am talking about?






Does this mean I do not have to do dishes?



















Wow..is that my cabinet? Or what is left of it?










Umm...okay no stove means Take out?

No dish washer means Paper plates?













One last picture before the stove, dishwasher and the sink are GONE.
















Notice the guy in the window..why is he smiling so big..does he know something I don't?

Oh yes...that a person should NEVER do this type of work right now..at the holidays and while trying to heal from a operation.

He looks too happy...dang him..lol

Anyone wanna know where everything is..that was in my kitchen? I bet you wanna know..aka..I have more pictures to share...so I will pretend you asked..deal?

How about I share those tomorrow? My pain meds are kicking in and I need them to work before I post anymore...

Check back for more OMG who in the heck did you do with all your junk...

Can't wait to see where all your kitchen stuff is hiding. Or is it not hiding, but in plain view?

I think take out and paper plates are definitely the order of the day!
