And so it goes …..

Ikea Kitchen Pile Depleting-3rd Day

Ikea Cabinets Piling Up - 3rd Day

Day 3 of Build-Up

Day 4 of Depleted Boxes - Drawers, Doors, etc.Day 4 of Build-Up - Don??

Day 4 – Looks like he’s done building up base and top cabinets. Pile of Doors, Drawers, knobs, panels, legs, panel sides, etc. left. So close!!!

Nat admits this was easier than he thought. Plus it helped that he built the cabinets up on a make-shift bench which preserved his knees and back. He also had some hiccups with a couple of cabinets where the instructions varied a bit from the others. The instructions didn’t really make sense to him, so he improvised and finished them off the way he thought worked best for him, and he was successful.

I had no idea this was going to go as smooth as it is, but the days are early yet. Faith in my fabulous husband has never wavered but God, the guilt pangs continue as I stand by and watch hubby doing all of the work in this “joint” effort. He’s taken his time building up the cabinets and has never stressed himself out, but he continues to think of possible problems that may crop up in the future. Could be good?? Could be bad?? And so it goes…

Born and raised in a small town in Ontario, Canada, with 5 sisters and a brother. Now retired, my husband and I travel, play golf and am slowly renovating our new (old) home. After my kidney transplant in 1999, we've learned to enjoy life to the fullest. Nat and I have driven across Canada, taken an Alaskan cruise and drove home via the Northern United States. We've also been to Mexico, the Caribbean, the East Coast of Canada and Cape Breton. We've done the "Snowbird" thing, having lived in Destin, Florida for a couple of months of the year. In 2007 we changed our travel plans in order to move into and renovate our new "old" home, but hope to someday get back on the road again. We also love returning to Scotland (Nat's origin of birth) to visit his family and tour the Highlands and surrounding Isles.
