Brawny Labor

Friends of ours are redoing their kitchen. Wait, "kitchen" is too small a description for the work that they are doing on their house -- knocking down walls, popping out the front of the house, framing in a laundry room in the breezeway, making the kitchen at least twice as large. It's going to be fabulous!

So their new refrigerator arrived yesterday and it required several brawny men to move it insdie. No wonder - it weight something like 500 pounds. It took four of the guys almost an hour to get it unwrapped, on the wheelie thing and up the few stairs into the house. Of course, the kitchen isn't quite done yet, so they're going to live with the fridge/freezer (all 48 cubic feet) in their living room for awhile.

I can't wait to see the finished product -- when we showed up yesterday, Mae was finishing up a plaster finish on the walls in the living room, which gets me thinking that I need something cool on MY living room walls and taht we should repaint the bedroom....the Adorable Husband just laughs.

I think we need to repaint our bedroom. The mediterranean green is not making me happy anymore. Sigh.
