I have to say that our kitchen was starting to look pretty great. Some counters were done, some cabinets were installed, we got new appliances and a new sink -- sucka was almost functional. But of course, it couldn't last. It is a fact of nature that all matter gravitates towards entropy, aka dastardly chaos, and why should our home renovations break the laws of physics? When we yanked out the first cabinets during Christmas, I would have choked on my own astonishment had I realized that redoing this kitchen would take so long. But like the great sage Paula Abdul once said, "You take two steps forward, I take two steps back."
Except, in our case, it often feels like we're two stepping up and down.
I'm pretty tired of this bizness, and have concocted a new plan to buy this house in a sweet part of northwest Austin:
You see, they spent two whole years renovating this 60's gem, which would mean NO MORE RENOVATIONS FOR ME. Plus, Miss Lakemoore Drive is 3500 sq ft, has a kidney shaped pool, sits on half an acre near Bull Creek, and features a built in freestanding fireplace that would rock my world. Literally. Momma like. To sweeten the deal, it listed at 859k but has been reduced to 799k, which makes it eminently almost not really affordable at all, but a girl can dream, right?
Well, what do you say? Who's with me? Co-op anyone?
