I am a ball on anxiety this morning, and I think that my irrational fears are spiraling out of control because of the kitchen. It looks like Allstate will give us about 11K to repaint, put down a new floor, and replace the bottom cabinets and replace the island and the counter tops… You get the picture. We will likely add some money to that, because the cabinets are numerous and old, and removing the bottom row will mean staining or replacing the top row. Unfortunately, the foyer is tiled, and that tile can’t be matched, so we will have to rip out and replace the foyer tile if we want tile in the kitchen. And after the dishwasher disaster, we want tile in the kitchen.
Our neighbor Diana, who is an awesome artist and an inspiration for one of the characters in the Innkeeper, told me I should be excited. New kitchen! It will be great!
I totally see her point. But today for some reason I want to curl into a ball and hide under the blanket. I haven’t had that much anxiety for months. I guess it’s just that time again or something.
We started back in the gym. Our personal trainer got fired and we got a new one. I can’t lift my legs. No seriously. Going up the stairs is very painful.
In other news, Gordon bought me red roses.
Happy Valentine’s to you!
