Confessional Thursday

Happy first day of December. I can't believe December and Thursday are already here. It feels like November went by in a flash. I am very excited for this month. Not only do we have the holidays to celebrate, but we have my girls second birthday to celebrate. It is a big month for us.

I digress, we are here for Confessional Thursday. Last week was Thanksgiving, so I have a lot on my chest this week.

/ that my kitchen still isn't done. Seriously. What was supposed to be a 3 week project has taken 7 weeks. We did have a one week break in there, but still. This is ridiculous. I can tell you that I would not want to go through this again. Too much stress and heartache.

/ that my cabinets were refinished, my drawers replaced and my doors, knobs and pulls were also replaced on Monday. That is the good news. The bad news is that the guy who measured it, measured one drawer wrong and two cabinet pull out drawers wrong. So they have to come back next week to finish those plus fix some stuff from the first install. Ugh. Will this ever end?

/ that I am over painting. I have whitewashed the brick wall, painted the pizza oven, painted the new cabinet were my old oven used to be, touched things up three times, painted inside the cabinet under the sink, painted the corbels and painted the mudroom wall. No more painting please.

/ that I had a hard time coming up with any sort of Christmas list to share with family this year. Sure there are things that I want, but I don't really need them.

/ that Sutton gave us a scare Tuesday afternoon. Rory picked up the girls late on Tuesday and about 10 minutes before he got there, Sutton had choked on a toy. I guess she stuck said toy in her mouth and started choking. Her teacher stuck her finger in her mouth to get it out and in the process she threw up. But at least the teacher got it out and didn't have to use the heimlich on her. So scary.

/ that we are 80% done Christmas shopping. We have two people left to buy for and two others need something small to go with their gift. Plus stocking for the girls. Thank you Cyber Monday.

/ that I am praying my kitchen gets done soon, so we can host Christmas dinner. Yes, Christmas is still 24 days away, but with our luck in this renovation, it won't be done.

/ that I am still reeling over Gilmore Girls: Year in the Life Of. The last four words. Wow. Just wow. I won't spoil it for anyone, but please oh please let there be another season. And I hated the Summer episode. Anyone else?

/ that I hate and love my new battery case for my phone. I love that it keeps my phone charged almost all the time, but I hate that I can't put my headphones in it. Small problems, yes I know, but when I workout (run), I watch Netflix and I have to take the case off and risk my phone falling. I don't need my phone breaking.


  1. So sorry about your kitchen. Fingers crossed all goes right at this point and they finish quickly. Yay for almost being finished Christmas shopping. I am going shopping with my bestie this weekend and I can't wait. I have a bunch finished, but need details.

  2. Girl, I'm so sorry about your kitchen. I can't imagine how frustrated you & Rory must be.

    I'm almost done with our shopping, too. This is the earliest ever for us.

  3. Was the summer episode the one with the play? The play that never ended? The play that I fell asleep through? lol If so, then yes Summer stunk.
    I'm sorry the reno isn't done yet. It will be worth it when it's all over and you can enjoy it--right now it's still just a pain in the butt I'm sure. And then you can take a break from painting for months or years if you want! :)

  4. Ughhh renovations never go smoothly or on time! It is so frustrating! I really hope next week it's all finished! And that is SO scary about Sutton - we've had a few scares like that too and every time I have frozen with fear - I am so bad with that stuff but my husband is so good. Yay for almost being done with shopping!

  5. Oh my gosh. Choking is so scary & a little one choking is a nightmare. Poor thing. I bet she was so scared.
    Your kitchen... this is why I've been afraid to do ours.
    I'm the same way - cant think of a list because I have everything I need.

  6. I've only watched the first episode of the GG revival but I'm itching to watch the rest! How frustrating that your renovation is so behind schedule! And I'm glad Sutton is okay. Super scary.

  7. Oh no, sorry to hear about your kitchen. Hope they get it done and soon. Being behind schedule is so frustrating. So happy to hear that Sutton is ok, how very scary.

  8. Sorry about your kitchen! Hopefully they finish soon and do it right this time! I still haven't finished Gilmore Girls... I'm trying to make it last! HA

    1. Thank you so much. I really hope so as well. I was trying to make it last, but I figured people would spoil it, so I went full force.

  9. So sorry that your reno is behind schedule- I'm sure that is super stressful with the holidays! But yay for being so close to done Christmas shopping!!

  10. The play sucked... ugh but omg the ending. Girl I cannot believe that its still not done! Prayers its done soon.
