Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day friends! I hope you're having a relaxing day by the pool, or at the lake, or at a nice barbecue. I having been doing something less fun but way productive this long weekend.

When you're suffering from post-nuptial depression, one of the best things you can do is to find another project you can throw yourself into. At least that's one of the best things I can do.

We decided to make this summer's focus the update of our kitchen. See our kitchen is really outdated. I mean the oven can't even hold a proper cookie sheet because it's so small. The cabinets have been scratched by previous owners' dogs, and the counters are hideous. And then there's the floor. Vinyl. And disgusting.

That was our starting point. The floors. We picked out a tile and Saturday started on this first step of a monster project. We spent Saturday ripping up the whole floor, and our bodies ache from the demolition. Yesterday we laid tile in about half the kitchen and will hopefully - fingers crossed - get the rest of it laid today.

P.S. Since it is Memorial Day, thank you to all those in the military for their selfless service so that I may spend a weekend laying tile in my kitchen.

Sounds like a wonderful way to spend the day. Let's face it--anything you two do together now is adorable.
