Missing Food...and You: Reflections on a Kitchen Remodel

We are nearing the end of a kitchen remodel (kind-of).

Which I got acute appendicitis in the middle of. 

Is that a coincidence? I don't think so.  ZERO kitchen = eating out all the time = ONE UNHAPPY GUT.

All I can say is: I MISS FOOD. I miss cooking with my husband. I miss the way my house smells after dinner. I miss my spice drawer. I miss trying new recipes. I miss eating boatloads of vegetables. I miss shooing my dog away from the stove because he can't keep his nose away from the pot. I miss feeling healthy. 

If there is one saying I can adopt during this massive redo, it is this: you don't know what you've got until it's gone. 

With that being said, I am excited—extremely—about our redo. We have done it rather quickly, and considering that we gutted the 100+ year old kitchen to the bones, rather cheaply, too.  It has been a month since we started, and we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I promise to do a big ol' post when we are done, including the whole before-and-after hoopla. (Although those of you who have read around here in the past may have already seen pictures of our gold-flecked laminate counters, our three different styles of wallpaper, and our stained, peeling '80's vinyl flooring. Not to mention the hung ceiling. With fluorescent lights. Yeah, and you whine about your kitchen...). Anyway, stay tuned. I think you all will be pleasantly surprised. 

AND I swear that regular posting will soon be back. The school year is almost over, so I will actually have time again.

Sigh. I can't wait. And with a new kitchen.
