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 -:)

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!"
