kitchen: Day 19

The joys of running (and draining) water! We have a sink, AND a dishwasher, AND a stove, which means we essentially have the kitchen back.

I ran the dishwasher and could not hear it. I literally had to press my ear against it to tell if it was on. This is a huge difference from the old one which sounded like we hired a toddler pots and pans band every time we turned it on.

Lots of painting to do this weekend. But, the kitchen is not that big so it should go fast.

J-Pacha Mama,

It seems like it has been longer - but I understand it is short in "renovation time"!
