2012...in Pictures (May)

Hello friends! We have had a lovely weekend with LOTS of progress. You'd hardly recognize our 50's blue and brown kitchen...minus at least sixty years worth of roach poop (all behind wallpaper, in crevices previously unreachable/see-able, etc. - and grossly - lots of roach poo stains on the trim - despite scrubbing down with bleach water). Are you disgusted yet? Me too! I kept pulling down paper and it would just rain down and I would groan and moan and well, it was just nasty. Just really, really nasty. But, that's all behind us now! I am elated over having a CLEAN kitchen!!! Truly CLEAN!!! What a huge blessing! 

I never dreamed the window trim would sand down and paint so beautifully. And The Engineer's patience and commitment to doing it right - what a tremendous blessing! (My MIL was here for the weekend and was also committed to doing it right = using a level a bajillion times. Totally worth it!) We've paid a little dumb tax trying to save big in one area. Lessons learned. That's alright. (smile)

Happy Tuesday, y'all!
