Our kitchen is Gutted!

Since this past Monday, my brother has been working hard for this day. I have helped where needed and stayed out of the way the rest of the time. 

This is what our kitchen looks like now, in no particular order.





All of this is so we can put in the new linoleum and bottom cabinets. 

Everything that was in those missing cabinets this morning is strewn all over the house, with the range nearly in the living room. 

And of course, as if all of this wasn't bad enough, our parents decided to just drop on by in the middle of all the mess to see what we were doing today. No, they couldn't call. I explained if they had, we probably would have asked them not to come right then as we were super swamped trying to get things done to have water back on before night fall. 
Oh well. They got a few chuckles and left for home leaving us to get on with the job at hand. Dad, naturally, wanted to help but his health has been tricky lately and we both politely declined the offer of help. 

It is now 4:18pm. 
Clearly the dog bed is not happening tonight, and we will be lucky to get the kitchen back together before midnight. 

Yes, we saved water for coffee! 

Tomorrow you will see a totally different scenario!
