There's nothing like that last minute panic to help move things along a little faster. Vern is using the last few days before his surgery to get things in order. It won't mean a working kitchen yet, but it does mean that some work can continue while he recovers.
The appliances were delivered.
We have a few more days to put some closure to some projects and then we will just take a "relax and wait" approach until Vern is on his feet again.
Until then, I'll probably be doing some organizing and cleaning, so prepare to be thrilled to death with those projects. I might even get some down time to play with yarn and needles.
