Starting to pack the kitchen cabinets in prep for the new ones to be delivered and installed. What a FUN experience! Trying to find room for all the boxes in the house so we can still use things and eat! My DH found more flooring issues and is repairing those in the main kitchen area. Gotta love remodeling! Just got to keep my eye on the prize at the end. BRAND NEW KITCHEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just added a favicon to my blogger title area. Wow, that took some doing. And you can't even recognize it as my sewing lady I use for everything like my business cards, on my paper bags and tags. But, I did it. Learning how to change html and blogger codes is crazy. The small image is twice the size of the favicon!

Just got an e-mail from WWC with the quote of the week. I love this one, as I love the brown paper bag! I'm a bag freak. Just cleaning out the basement and found I saved any BPB with handles, anything that could be stamped upon and any that had been gently used? Why? Don't know, it killed me to toss them. The ones that had company names on, small wrinkles from purchases, but still I saved them, loved them...I could have used them...Can you say HOARDER? They are gone now but I still think of them! I use BPBs to sell my crafts and I hoard those, I use the brown kraft colored paper for my business cards and tags. I still have NEW BPB around me! I sound crazy, right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Progress continues on the kitchen and the sewing. I have a show coming up in June and need to buckle down and get busy.

Also, this week is Our daughter's birthday! Time flies...numbers just get crazy! Mandy will be 34!!!! We are getting old! She's the BEST! I don't know what I would ever do without her. Just to hear her laugh or see smile makes my day! She doesn't talk, but she speaks volumes to us without saying a word. Her seizures have robbed her and us of so much, but she's the sweetest girl. She's sleeping now and gets her days and nights mixed up, she'll be awake soon, no problem, babe! I'm here.

The kitchen redo is on track so far. My hubby has spent this week tearing out part of our floor down to the joist and replaced them. They weren't going in the right way with the other floor. We had a sun porch and kitchen and now it's one room. So for a couple days we had no floor in the "sun porch". Now, we have new joists and we will have a level floor! Yeah! It's all going to be Fab when it's finished. Great to have a Carpenter at home!

Case in point.. (Can't always get what you want) OK, I said before I ordered a new printer from Amazon? Well, I didn't update that post. I stopped that order, My husband temporarily fixed the printer and all was well. Yeah, right!! Here's what happened next. I needed to print my Mom's Mother's day and birthday cards, they are on the same day. So naturally the printer decides to die before I can print and mail in a timely fashion for FL. Thanks for letting me down HP 8250!!! Mom's card were late. And my printer is dead. So I go to Amazon to order and the price is up $30, GREAT! Check EBay...OK, order one and it arrives. I decide to get an HP Office jet 8000. Good to go! We get it all set up and all it does is EAT paper!!! IT"S BRAND NEW! IT SHOULD WORK RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX!! Tomorrow I have to e-mail and call the place I bought it and tell them it doesn't work! I can't wait. Can't ever get what you want

Can't always get what you want! Boy, The Rolling Stones got that right. Which brings me to my new kitchen planning...what? Yeah. that's right, in planning a new kitchen YOU CAN NEVER GET WHAT YOU WANT!!!! It seems that no matter what I pick it doesn't come with that door, that door doesn't come with glass, you can't get the vintage finish with this style.. they try to drive you insane. Cabinets are coming in June. I hope I like them. I still have to decide on the farmhouse sink, faucet, back splash and stove and microwave. It has not been a pleasant experience. I hope it gets better SOON???????? My kitchen won't look just like this but, I love it. I will post pictures later. After the insanity ends...

Sick as a dog... not sure what that means but I think I know what it feels like. We were all sick this week and weekend. My H got a cold, then I got a cold, then our daughter got it, too! All we do is cough! Not Good! I have a MILLION things to do and nothing has gotten done this week. There must be better days ahead.
