Holiday Season Construction Project

December 9, 2012

Kitchen torn upThis is my kitchen during the “rip windows out and replace them twice before I’m satisfied” phase. The kids have been pretty zen and accommodating about me not cooking meals anymore and forcing them to forage for cold sandwich fixings from the fridge and drink water from the bathroom. That is… up until yesterday when I inadvertently moved cabinet carcasses out of my way and accidentally closed the path to the fridge.

My fifteen year old son suddenly engaged.”Mom, I think we are going to need the kitchen to have less stuff in it, like emptier or something. This is not a good design.”

I simply stared at him. I thought twice, murmured once, “Oh, I think it looks pretty good THIS way.”  He shook his head sagely, “It needs to be emptier- I’m being honest with you here.”

Well… if you REALLY think so…

    Well, hiding the refrigerator is ONE way of going on a diet…

      Hah! I gave up on that trick years ago. Keeping the fridge near to empty is a deterrent but I catch a lot of flack from growing teens when I do that. Can’t win.
