Days 9 & 10 - Pane in the Glass

The sheetrock was hung in two days, but that is the end of the kitchen work inside our house for awhile. For some reason or another, (brainfog maybe? is there such a thing?) we just now placed the order for our windows. I knew it took weeks to get them in, but it somehow didn't dawn on either of us to go ahead and order them. After half a day of being a little sick over the wait time (which ends up to be only 3 weeks - which is really good for windows), we realize, it's really not a big deal after all because the cabinets have to be built. So, for the next two weeks, the cabinets will be built - base cabinets first. Then they will be installed, the countertops will be templated (yes, I know, not really a word) and ordered (which also takes two weeks), and the rest of the cabinets should be close to being done when the windows come in. Then the windows will be installed, the walls mudded & sanded, the tile installed and we should be back on track. So, long story short, no big deal after all (we hope). At least not today...

We are a little tired of living like refugees though...

Yes, that is our fridge in the foyer. The white paper was very neatly taped down by Jesus' son to prevent damage to the wood floors. We have a long path from the front door through the foyer, dining room, and computer room. We moved all of our junk from the two rooms being redone into the dining room. It keeps trying to spill over into the living room, so far we have kept it fought back. The computer room is a lost cause though.
