Our kitchen is 93.57% complete. Exactly. I just did all the math.

We've eaten out more than I care to admit. Local takeout places are very familiar with us. We, in turn, are very familiar with paper plates. And I've grown to hate paper plates. We've learned to wash small things in bathroom sinks and large things in the bathtub. Instead of asking the kids to take their dishes to the sink, we've learned to say take your dishes to the trash. (We're going to have to change that pretty quickly.) While the contractors are incredibly clean, we've got dust in every crack and crevasse. Our neighbors are probably tired of the endless truck traffic, sawing and hammering.

On Monday I'll reveal the before and after pictures. It's dramatic as hell. You'll just have to wait. There's still 6.43% to go. The end can't come soon enough.

Good luck with the remainder of the project. I'm looking forward to seeing photos of the big reveal.
