Yeah, yeah, I have light.




I have light, but no insight.

For years, decades even, I have wanted to re-do the kitchen. But I always get paralyzed when I start just thinking about what to do first, etc.

Meanwhile, all three of my girls, 3D, Actonbell, and AP3, have redone their kitchens. Those kids. Showin' me up and all.

It's happening to me again. I do know that the first thing is to pick the counter tops. I drug 3D out with me to look, and strange as it seems, I didn't see anything I wanted. Strange, because I'm so easy to please. (Don't ask the kids. They lie.)

There's tile, granite, Corian®, and a superabundance of stuff to pick from. Unfortunately, I have a color/pattern in my head, and I can't find it. It would be easier if I hadn't planned the entire thing out in my head in advance.



Looks as if it will be a while before I get to actually start having it done. OR, maybe I'll get lucky and find something that I love for the counters soon. Then the other stuff will be so much easier than the counters.

Well, except, what will I do with husband Niks while it's all being done. Anybody got a room to rent to him for a month or so?

I have a spare bedroom.

So your counter top is your Moby Dick, I guess, and the pattern your albatross. Marine theme?

Maybe I'll ship him out to you Doug. No on the marine theme. I'm definitely going with a Tuscan style. All it means is replacing everything, so why not?

If you drink a bottle of wine, it will look Tuscan, right?

omigosh, at first, as sleepy as I am, I thought you druggED 3D to come with you. Deep down, you want to drag this out and have fun with it, huh?

Look, Sis, for the countertop you want those one-inch tiles that are in red, yellow and blue, and make you think of the Yellow Brick Road. Wallpaper, now, well, whatever the hell they got on sale in Intercourse.

Go for a holiday and ask the girls to have it done while you're away Lucy.
