This is my dining room. Technically, it isn't a room, but a continuation of my kitchen. Our house was built in the 70's when big kitchen and dining room combos where all the rage. This weekend we started the next phase of our kitchen renovation. First, I was going to leave the paneling and remove the wall paper so we could paint. Again, our house was built in the 70's when dark paneling was all the rage. We have chosen to paint all the paneling in our house. As I was trying to remove the wallpaper, I mouthed something about it would be easier to just remove the paneling and put up dry wall. Have you ever opened your mouth and knew instantly is just got you in a world of trouble? Yeah...me too. Michael was just waiting for me to say the word dry wall. He has wanted to rip all the paneling off the walls and dry wall ever since we have moved into this house. I on the other hand did not want to do that because I KNEW what that would require. Well, last night he started removing paneling and now my dining room is without any thing. Today I am suppose to remove everything out of our kitchen cabinets so he can take them off the wall in order to remove the paneling. Please tell me where am I suppose to put all of my dishes and kitchen things and cabinets? Oh, did I mention that I also have 14 more quarts of green beans to can? You would think I would learn my lesson about my whole mouth thing. Apparently, I am slow. We have a wall that separates our living room from our kitchen and dining room. Around 10:00 p.m. last night, I had loose lips and said something about removing that wall and just having a great room. Michael's eyes lit up like a Christmas tree and he climbed down off his ladder. He immediately went to the computer and started looking up information on removing load bearing walls! I promptly went to bed before I could say anything else to get me in trouble!
grace and peace,
