Another Kitchen Delay

OK this was to be the big weekend! The culmination of all the planning and ordering and stressing about how much debt we were incurring. The cabinets that were due in yesterday....

wait for it...

Well they came in as scheduled, but more than a third of them were damaged. And of course the damaged ones were scattered, in other words there wasn't any row that he could go ahead with this weekend...

Crap. I really need to post some photos to show how we have been living...

It ain't pretty.

We went back to trying to cook meals about a week ago. But with all the top cabinets gone and the contents packed up it's very complicated. Gotta go thru the boxes for the spices, olive oil, bread crumbs tomato sauce etc.

Or you realize how many little implements we take for granted while cooking, you know, the solid measuring cups, the cutting boards etc.

Anyway, the replacement cabinets aren't due in til next Thursday. I can't remember why there was such a rush to rip down the cabinets in the first place, I think it was cuz my contractor thought that the cabinets were 'stock cabinets' or in the warehouse, and turns out the 36" aren't stock only the 30".

So sorry, nobody can come over to my house to hang right now...I don't even want to hang here right now!

We have major home improvements in our future and stories like this scare me. Hope they get your stuff in soon.
