Out with the old

I won’t even go into the atrocities we found when we pulled out the old stove.  Oy. I’m such a crappy housekeeper.

In with the new.

What should I bake in it first? Cupcakes? Tater tots?

The new microwave can’t go in yet. The old one was hard wired into the wall which is apparently a no-no.  Whether or not it was a no-no when the ex installed it back in 2008, I have no idea.  If he knew about it, he certainly kept quiet about it as he had no stake in whether the thing was installed correctly or not.

Anywho, the nice delivery guys took one look at that and said “Nope”.  They were really sweet about it though and explained that nowadays these things just get plugged in. An electrician would have to come and install an outlet up in the cupboard for me.  Handsome and Handy Hubby is going to take care of that and the nice GE Gentlemen will come back on Tuesday and hang and install the microwave.

This little piece of serenity is the updated look for the bed.  I won’t keep it like this all the time.  Instead, I’ll make the bed up like this when the house is being shown. My room looks so barren.

My door is being repainted by this nice gentleman. I know it’s the big thing to go to school for the tech industry jobs, but seriously, people.  Where would we be without these guys? And gals!  There is a very cute young lady prepping the front door frame but I was too embarrassed to ask if I could take her picture. Consider going into skilled labor, kiddos.  We need you.

When am I ever going to feel like knitting or crocheting again?
