As I write, part of me is in mourning while the other part is about to burst with joy. This week I lost my temporary sink. It was a great big, deep utility-type sink that allowed me to keep my sanity through this long and drawn-out remodel.
Big Sink had to go to make way for New Sink.
New Sink is in its place and ready to be hooked up, but that can’t happen until Granite Countertop is installed.
Granite Countertop can’t be installed until we show up at the stone yard to select the specific slab of granite.
We can’t go to the stone yard until the installation company comes out to measure.
The installers can’t come to measure until someone calls them to set up the appointment.
Clearly, we’re caught in a viscous cycle. Believe me when I say it will be broken first thing Monday morning.
In the meantime, cabinet bases are all in, doors and drawer fronts are about 90% installed.
What remains to be installed: The sidewalls on either side of the refrigerator and the big cabinet above.
Only two more purchases to go for the kitchen: Pendant lights and backsplash tile. Both should happen this coming week provided we can make the decisions.
We’re getting close to the finish line and now I feel myself running out of endurance. The end is in sight, but it’s still way out there in the distance. I’m taking deep breaths and praying for patience.
It won’t be long now. It won’t be long now. It won’t be long now. Breathe. In. Out. It won’t be long now …
