What a difference a week makes!
We finally got tired of putting off redoing the kitchen! Pretty much gutted the whole thing, with the exception of a few cabinets (very well made solid woods) we’re putting in new cabinets and fronts, new appliances, new sink and plumbing, and tons of electrical work (some was even planned rather than just "discovered" along the way!)
Anyway, here’s how the week went in photos below.  Started on Monday, Tuesday morning everything was torn out.  Wednesday and Thursday were the build up of new cabinets, then Friday was finishing.  They hung doors and drawers on Saturday as well as putting on knobs and handles. 
This week we’ll get the new countertops and sink and plumbing, as well as appliances. Then new light fixtures and flooring. So exciting!

This is a big weekend comming for geeks.  Board game geeks that is.  Thursday afternoon father and son pack up the Odyssey and drive to Anaheim for GenCon SoCal, which is to say the second-biggest gaming convention in America, held in Anaheim CA.
And before you ask, no we won’t be going to Disneyland.  Debbie has forbidden our entry into the park without her. 
Anyway, big bonding trip for J and me.  We’ll write from the road, sure to have pictures, isn’t technology wonderful?
