Renovation Update

This weekend Kevin got the over the range microwave installed.  It looks great.  He ran into lots of problems with the ducting and the location of the studs so it took two weeks and lots of visits to our local hardware stores.  The guy we hired to tile the upstairs bathroom showed up (he is not very reliable and doesn't plan ahead).  The tiles are all down and he is supposed to come tomorrow and finish the grouting.  I am so tired of having all the stuff from the bathroom we use every day in odd spots to protect it from the dust and allow us access during construction.  I will be very glad when it is finished.  The next project will be replacing the washer and dryer.  I still don't mind going to the laundromat every 5 days or so - it is much faster than doing it at home.  It might be more difficult after I return to work next month but for now I can wait for a great sale.

I love the laundromat, it's almost like a holiday. A little change, wouldn't want to have to do it all the time, but when I do, I'm thrilled with washing and drying all my laundry in about an hour.

Make sure you post pictures of your bathroom and the microwave.... we are interested.

I knew somebody was going to ask for pictures. We'll see. If I had before and after it would be better.

I can't believe you didn't think of the before and after pix for your blog-followers! ☺
