i will survive...hey, hey!

berardmrOctober 22, 2012

At first, I was afraid, I was petrified

Kept thinking, I could never live without you by my side

But then I spent so many nights thinking, how you did me wrong

And I grew strong and I learned how to get along...

You may remember how I was down and out with my nightmare of a floor installation. Well, after a month of fighting for what's right, my kitchen is almost ready for its reveal!!!

I battled floor tiles that were so uneven that we tripped on them, load bearing posts that were compromised, and a fridge that had obvious forklift damage but KitchenAid didn't want to repair/replace it because it was sitting in my garage for over 30 days (their limit for cosmetic problems).

Look for my cherry and white kitchen reveal in the next 2 weeks or so....

I am SO glad to be on the other side of this battle -:)

OK--maybe my kitchen remodel hasn't been as rough as I've thought...can't wait to see your reveal! (Mine will be here as soon as that LAAAAST piece of molding comes in...)

I'm very pleased for you!

Here's a visual for you...it's Saturday morning, a young mother with Snugli and baby in tow, 8-track blaring and the vacuum. You know the rest of the story.

Congrats on overcoming the many obstacles. You know what they say? "And I'll survive, I will survive, I will survive!"
