The saga of the kitchen remodel continues.  When we took out our old
kitchen cabinets, we decided we really should take up the flooring at
the same time since it would only get scraped up by the new cabinets
and we eventually wanted different flooring on the main level anyway.
So we are currently putting in hardwoods — not just the kitchen but
the dining room and living room.

And since we took down some walls in the kitchen remodel, the ceiling
would need to be patched up anyway so we are taking the “opportunity”
to smooth our “popcorn” ceiling.  And we can’t smooth the kitchen
ceiling without doing the dining room and living room too…

We should be finished sometime in 2003 🙂

Hope you have a construction-free week. — Michael

Would you look best in satin, silk, leopard skin or lace?  Maybe ask
your mate’s opinion.

Strike One, Strike Two…
by Michael Webb
http://theromantic.com/

When we were doing our kitchen remodel I came across a large bag of
match books Athena and I had been collecting over the years.  Every
time we would go to a restaurant or on vacation, we’d pick up match
books if we saw them.

Since we aren’t really doing anything with all these match books and
they were just cluttering up our space I decided it was time to toss
them.  Athena, being the pyromaniac that she is, cringed at the
thought of wasting all those packets of fire.

We came up with a great compromise.  Over the last week we began a
little ritual.  Each night as we finish up in the kitchen we close our
eyes and each grab a match book.  We take turns talking about the date
or situation where we acquired it.  Then I throw mine in the trash and
Athena lights hers on fire in the kitchen sink and then douses the
packet with water before throwing them away.

Are you needing to get rid of a collection that is simply collecting
dust?  Maybe its postcards, sea shells, tshirts or refrigerator
magnets?  Take the time to share the memories behind the pieces in the
collection and then make room for more.
