Just in case you were wondering.....
1. The kitchen is almost done! Walls are painted, cabinets cleaned, floor layed, buffet will be finished as soon as we clean off the grout, window treatments will be done this week (I've decided to dye the curtains I already had). I have the light fixtures picked out, but not purchased yet. Pictures to follow shortly.
2. Pain in the neck is almost gone! Hooray!! I found out our insurance (actually a discount plan) includes a nearby chiropractor who only charges $25 a visit (my cost $17.50). I've seen him four times and feel lots better. Can I just say that I've now seen 5 different chiropractors over the past 20 or so years and each has been vastly different from the others. This one is no exception, but it's working, so I won't complain.
3. Lauren is having her tonsils out on Aug 28th, so Darrell and I are keeping Cassidy and Grant. They'll be here at least two weeks. We are enjoying having them here, but now I know why you have kids when you're young. I have some friends who are my age with children the ages of my grandchildren. More power to them, cause I couldn't do it.
4. Lest anyone think I'm complaining in #3, I'm not. Just stating facts. I'm old. I admit it. Don't judge me.
