I function much better, on an emotional level, when there are no boxes of kitchen things in the living room. To tell you how bad this feeling was, I didn't even take any pictures of the living room during this episode. Any. At all. None. Wasn't going to happen. I felt bad enough making my Visiting Teachers sit in it while visiting me.
Seriously. The kitchen is finally, official ready for a new floor (the final stage of the remodel). Once the bathrooms are finished and paid for (We love paying cash! Woot woot!), we will start shopping for kitchen flooring. That and one other big surprise are what we currently have planned for Christmas.
It's going to be a really good Christmas.
