proof I am the most patient woman alive today

I demolished the kitchen counter today, and the children "helped". My hands are hurting, but the old counter is gone, and the new one is perched in it's place. Tomorrow I have to nail it all together and screw it on, but it already looks so much better. I'm wondering why I waited three years to do this. The tile was always so gross. The new one certainly isn't the countertop of anyone's dreams, this faux labrador granite formica, but I want to make bread just because I have a nice place to knead it on. I'm going to need some help to do the sink side, but I want to do it as soon as possible. Then some new carpet, some linoleum, paint a few more rooms, and I'll be ready to move to the farm.
