one wall down...

1 down, 3 to go...
so far on the kitchen make over...
still trying to get the counter right...
will be tweaking this a lot until I can find the right layout of things...
we will replace the stove one of these days...
thinking about a floating shelf on the left to go from the fridge to the stove for all the spices...
freeing up the space under it to spread things out a bit...
the cabinets were oak...
21 years of yucky looking cabinets....
the island is black and its half painted...
will have to do that soon enough...
going around and doing a wall at a time...

Craig is down sick...
had to call in yesterday and won't make it there today...
I am up with him now...
he has been vomiting...
fever...
feels like crap...
sore throat, the whole nine yards...

Doug left...
after he pitched a fit...
(didn't want to help anymore)
I told him to take his drama and go...
I wasn't dealing with it...
so Craig and I worked hard on the kitchen Thursday...
and we got so much done, without Doug being in the way...
he is just impossible to work with anymore...
he wanted to cut corners and do things the easy way...
and I wanted them right...
he would only do things his way, so, he had to go...
he did meet with the lady on the apartment yesterday...
now he wants us to co-sign for the apartment...
not happening...
 I love my son, but cannot afford to do that...
I am not going to be responsible if he doesn't pay his rent or tears the place up...
this guy has so much potential and he could be so much more...
but he won't...
and its sad...

seems like the only time he comes to see us or talks to us is if he needs something...
if he has money, we don't see him...
he spends it with his friends...
so, let them deal with him...

on a brighter note...
harvest is OVER...
I have my hubby back...
;0)
work on the kitchen will continue until we get it done...
taking the weekend off for Craig to mend and get better...
there's always other things to do!

The kitchen looks great, Tete. I like the idea of a spice shelf, too. You are smart not to co-sign with Doug. It will only enable him to not do what he should be doing- standing on his own two feet and managing his money so he can pay his rent and take care of himself. Hang in there....praying that Craig recovers quickly. Poor kid! xo Diana

Tete, I know it's a huge disappointment when our kids just can't seem to get it right...I think maybe we were too good to them at times. LOL Oh I am with your 100% when it comes to living at home and not wanting to help. Yes, you were right to not co-sign...some times the best thing, even though it's the hardest thing , to say to our kids is "NO" ! I've been blessed with my daughters because of rules. If they had to move in they had 3 months to get a job, money saved to get a place and then they had to go. Only once my oldest and her family moved in while they totally remodeled their house. That was so hard...thank God I had a job and worked nights. LOL I pray for all of you, because we all need prayer. :):) Blessings, xoxo,Susie
