Well I haven’t written in over a month.
The blogger side of my brain is telling me “bad bad bad” and “shame on you”…while the other half is telling me that “its all good.” (Anyone else experience blogging guilt?)
A quick update on life for you (and to also satisfy the marketing gal inside):
The kitchen project is taking longer than expected. After an incident with the granite (long story, won’t share here) we are finally back on track. We have installed all cabinet doors, put on handles, installed new dishwasher, refrigerator, under cabinet lighting, installed microwave in the pantry, dimmer on the dining room light, and primed the walls for paint. I don’t have any updated pictures of all this… We got new phones a few weeks ago, and well that’s my excuse. ;)
Next up, apply texture to walls, paint, electrical for island lights/oven appliances, and install remaining appliances.
We are feeling really ready to be done with this project. I’m ready to clean the house and get furniture out/unpack the mess that has been hiding away in our guest room since May. Talk about rough. We should be able to better organize our house once the paint is up. I think that will provide a big sense of relief. Finishing touches (trim, backsplash,etc) can be done with furniture out.
On a happier note- we just got back from a beautiful trip to Michigan! My grandmother lives in Frankfort which is a little harbor town on Lake Michigan. Weather was nice and cool. We had bonfires, hung out at the local brewery (Storm Cloud) everyday, had a celebrity sighting (Meryl Davis), did some shopping, canoeing, and went for 3 very hilly runs for a total of 10 miles. Considering we were only there for 3 days I consider it a wonderful trip.
I’m also happy to report that our workouts are getting back on track! I’ve been running about 3-4 days a week again and I am also training a friend for the swimming leg of a triathlon! We are having a lot of fun (well… I think she would say that!) and it feels WONDERFUL to be back in the water again.
Hope everyone has been having a great Summer. I promise we will resurface …eventually.
