You would think that after 13 years of marriage, I would be used to it. But Jeff never ceases to amaze me. He can do anything!
This weekend he began a major and long-term kitchen remodel. Here’s what he did: first, he removed cabinets, walls and ceiling. He moved a gas line. He re-did some electrical stuff, including adding recessed lighting. He framed. He re-insulated. He dry walled (if that can be used as a verb). And probably did a few other things that I’m not even aware of.
After all of that, somehow I was the one feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. When I went to bed last night, there was plastic covering everything, insulation and dust all over the floor, the fridge and the microwave were in the family room… you get the picture.
When I woke up this morning, everything was returned to its proper place. The kitchen was sparkling clean, and there were fresh cut roses in a vase on the counter! You see why I am amazed? What a man!
Here is an update on the kitchen. Like I said, it will be a long project.
Off the subject:
Jonah has learned to dial my cell phone number. Today I left him home for the 5 minutes that it takes me to pick up my kids at the corner after school. He said as I left “I’ll just call you if I need to tell you something.” I told him to only call if it was really important.
While I was gone I got 2 calls from Jonah. One was to tell me that Simon had three teeth. The other was to tell me that Pluto was the furthest planet from the sun. That’s why it is the coldest.
