Well, it's not fancy but it is looking a little more like a kitchen. I took a half day off last Friday and managed to get this cabinet up.
I hid my storage containers in the upper cabinet which frees up space on the shelves by the sink. Next step, put up small shelves and a pot rack, remove the trim I used to cover the paneling seam and put up something for the backsplash. I have this wacky idea to use a leftover piece of vinyl flooring for the backsplash. I'll take a picture if I try it.
I have 3 more vacation days to use up before December 8th so I plan to take every Friday off until then. It is quite nice to have 4 day weeks but on Monday I will have twice as many emails to answer. I can't escape the work. My plans for Friday are clean up outside, store the shade cloth, roll up hoses, stack construction materials nicely. Then maybe go through some of the boxes in my bedroom and organize the kitchen.
Every month I track the value of my house and rental house on Zillow and my 401K balance. I have a certain number in mind before I retire/change careers. Today I was only $2,000 away from my goal. That is amazing. I know the housing market and stock market fluctuate a lot but if I am that close now then I am pretty sure I will surpass my goal by my target date of my 45th birthday 1 1/2 yrs away). It is great to see the pieces falling in to place.
