The view from down here

I just have one more screw! One more! I let Thom sleep in this morning and I have attempted to remove all of the screws holding in the old formica countertop myself. What this has entailed is a lot of lying on my back staring at the ceiling so I thought I'd share the view I've been looking at for the last hour: our new light and ceiling. I know I've shown these to you before but I was pleasantly surprised to see how nice it all looks from the floor. Much better than close up, anyway.

I'm waiting for some good ol' WD-40 to kick on the one last screw holding the countertop in - the brackets holding the sink in were much easier than this little bastard is. Grrr. Where are my woman muscles? Anyway, if all goes well (did I just jinx myself?) we'll have the new countertop on by tonight and I will update y'all on that too. Wish us luck - you know we need it.

Hey Susie-
I'm hooked on your blog! You are doing way more work than I ever did in the kitchen, so I'm super impressed! I mostly can't wait to see how the floor looks. I can't picture cork...
Best of luck with your last screw! I'm off to pull some weeds:(
