In the meantime we are having to eat out for most of our meals. I plan to go to the store this weekend and get some stuff for sandwiches and microwave meals (we have a small microwave we can use) so that it's not all fast food because I'm already sick of it.
Another downside of the renovation is that I'm having to lock our cat Halpert in the unfinished part of our basement so that he doesn't try to sneak out while the workers are there during the day (which he totally would). It's where his litter box already is located and I moved his food and water and a comfy dog bed in there and I leave the light on. The first day he meowed as soon as I put him in there but the past two days he hasn't made a peep and seems fine when Kristian lets him out in the afternoon. I know it's a bigger deal to me than him but I still feel bad.
Anyways, here are some of the progress pictures i.e. what it looks like now that we no longer have a kitchen. They gutted it on Tuesday and today they plan to do the plumbing stuff since we are rearranging where the sink and dishwasher will be.
The first three pictures are the kitchen all packed up. I hate packing up kitchens and this just reminds me that I really don't want to move anytime soon.
And here is the scene I came home to on Tuesday night. I would be lying if I said this didn't give some anxiety. No turning back now.
They left the old refrigerator plugged in so that we can keep our food and Hunters milk. Hopefully we won't need to be without a fridge and can just transfer stuff from the old one to the new one when the time comes.
And just as a reminder here is our inspiration photo and what we hope our kitchen will resemble.
