It seems every weekend mom and dad have been doing something, which leads me to spending time with Grandma & Grandpa on the farm. They figured I would be too much in the way and I would slow them down. Last weekend they finished up the kitchen and this weekend is the basement. We had a water pipe bust back in January, click here to read about that. So this wasn't in the plans but will help raise the value of the house, because that carpet was pretty nasty to begin with. Once we finish the basement, we just have a few things to do outside (landscaping and paint the deck) and we are done. So in the meantime, I will continue to go to Grandma & Grandpa's and get spoiled. Here are some before and after pictures of the kitchen. It is a pretty drastic change (in a good way).
