    Just broke ground!

    Well, it's official! We have just started our "project". Complete kitchen reno, outside deck and new fireplace in the adjoining family room. The first shovels got busy about an hour ago (with my son and his 2 friends) digging up our back yard (Oh! To be 17 again and have that energy!).

    I will post pics as we go along if I can............wish me luck. Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Do you realize how many fun casino trips that money could have been used for?

    What? You mean we have to wait for pictures? I thought it was going to be an HGTV special?

    Seriously, good luck!

    Good luck on the renovations Wendy! A least you will have something to show for your money even if it's not as much fun.

    LOL! We are starting outside so I won't lose my cooking power for a while! We are doing most of it ourselves (DH is handy and knows talented trades people through work)

    I will be doing as much as I can with my lousy back but I make great sandwiches and can go out for beer runs

    Wendy--starting next Monday, we will be transforming our master bath from tub/shower to walk in shower with seat. Got to prepare--we're getting long in the tooth! I dread home improvements myself. We will NOT be doing any of the work ourselves. It's great you have someone who can help you. Next on the agenda--new carpet--ughhh! Hey, I should plan a casino trip for that day!!

    I'm never sure if it's better to KNOW how to do things and HAVE to do them or just pay more and have it DONE for you! LOL

    Seriously, it will be a long job but hopefully we can get it done in not TOO long ~ and stay married doing it!!
