Not being able to cook or even be in one's kitchen for days on end is a surreal experience for someone who, like me, spends the majority of her time there. Waiting for the final doors to be made and put on and the lazy susan repaired by the crew so I can unpack my food and equipment and having to do the waterproofing of the cabinets ourselves (not to mention spending $70 for those supplies) is totally unexpected. You'd think everything would be done before they left, but it wasn't.
I am hoping to get into the kitchen to cook at least a little bit today, if for no other reason than I'd like to eat something other than Chinese takeout, deli food and Italian Nutella slathered on bread. Cross your fingers this all gets resolved soon.
