everyone getting the food together, kids getting excited, last minute gifts, wrapping paper and scotch tape...... or in my case banging, crashing, screech of a circular saw and my kitchen in total disarray.
but i really cant complain because i got my dishwasher!!!!!
the bar area we choose to put it in wasnt deep enough so off came the back.
which i wasnt worried about because i had already decided not to use it as a breakfast bar. the upper cabinets are too low and i just keep to much junk up there for that. and the fact that the over hang was constantly filled with stuff as well. so i planned on putting much needed extra storage in that area with some cabinets, which ben is finishing up for me. :)
the day after christmas we left bright and early and headed to austin. i was so excited because i got visit the very first habitat for humanity restore.
it was so freaking awesome. i could have stayed in there forever. i was hunting for cabinet doors to make my signs out of. and did they have cabinet doors!!
i think i have just about depleted our restore of them. i was wishing we had a trailer to bring stuff back with me but ben was already eyeing the stack of doors i was accumulating so i knew that was pushing it. lol. but we did get doors for my new under the bar storage area:) for a buck a piece. like i said i was in heaven.
they even had this huge area outside where they store the reclaimed lumber. ben was digging that part and i actually believe he wished for that trailer just a tad.
but we had a good christmas. everyone got what they wanted.
last night we had a calm new year's with some friends for college that live here in town. my goal for 2008 is to be content where i am. thats more of a psychological location than a physical one. basically to not wish for greener grass and if i do to have the guts to actually go after it.
happy 2008 everyone!!
