|TAKE THAT, TREE|
|The strewn and mangled body parts of the evil tree|
Back in January, we started the renovation of my house by redoing my ugly bathroom. My stepdad grew up doing home remodeling, so he's been doing the actual work, saving me the money I would otherwise have to spend on labor. I'm so happy with my new bathroom!
|The old bathroom, taken in December, obviously.|
|The bathroom, cleared of all decor.|

|I LOVE that light fixture!|

We've ripped it ALL OUT, though!
The other exciting part is that we're moving the appliances to the opposite side of the kitchen, leaving the wall between the kitchen and living room bare, so my step-dad's putting in an arch!
This will hopefully open up the kitchen some, since it doesn't get much direct light, right now. And I will be able to watch TV while cooking, huzzah!
Now for the sucky part: I don't have a kitchen for about a month, ahhh! We're ripping everything out now, but the cabinets won't be installed until April 11th, then the countertops won't be installed until the end of the month. I can rig up a fake counter top easily enough, but that still leaves me with only a fridge and a counter, no stove or microwave or SINK to clean dishes or get water. I have the bathroom sink, but that's not really built for doing dishes.
So, I'll have to eat cereal or raw food primarily for a few weeks, which won't be the biggest problem. I can't wait for it all to be done, though!
