My new kitchen
After all the trouble getting these things here, I'm so happy with them and wonder why we didn't do this 8 years ago when we first moved in :)
I got them all from Lowe's and they all had to be special ordered because they are black. It took about 3 weeks of back and forth calls (at least 20) to finally schedule their delivery and installation. So crazy. But the installers did a great job. Would I buy from Lowe's again? Probably not if I had to special order something. I would buy something they had in stock or just expect it was going to take 3 weeks to get what I wanted. I'd also only buy one thing at a time because they had the hardest time keeping track of all three of my items. At one time, they were going to deliver a dryer instead of the dishwasher. Hey, they both start with a d right?
Now, everything is checked off my TO DO list and I'm not motivated to do much of anything else. I need to call someone to see if they can get the pigeons out of my roof and plug up the hole. The pest guy said he wouldn't do that yesterday (eventhough pigeons are pests!) but their poop is making my roof leak. Sorry guys, you are just too messy to share living space with me. I love having the other birds nest in my roof and hearing the baby birds in the spring. I used to raise pigeons when I was a kid and had one bird named Charlie that couldn't fly. He also had babies that died before getting feathers. There was something genetically wrong with that bird, but I loved him none the less. So, I don't hate pigeons, I just love them to live out of my roof :) Maybe if I built them a nice nest box, they would pick that instead of my roof, or maybe they would tell all of their friends about me (like the mice did) and I would have an invasion!
