As of this afternoon I have a functional kitchen!

The fridge went in yesterday and as of this morning the water & ice thru the door now works. I moved the contents of the old fridge into the new one as well as a bunch of things from the garage. The microwave convection hood got installed the other day, but vented today and this afternoon the dishwasher is in.

I've located perhaps a third of my kitchen supplies which have been put away into the cabinets. I've found the bread & butter plates, half the salad plates, a third of the cereal bowls and a third of the cups and mugs. I have all the flatwear, but still lack a tray for it so it remains unopened for the moment. The glasses, all but two of the dinner plates and all the soup bowls remain MIA. So too, most of my serving pieces, casseroles and the like.

I now can actually cook in the kitchen!

Per my husband׳s request, what did I do the first night I could actually cook? I brought home pizza. In all fairness, I had errands in Santa Rosa this afternoon ending up at my former office manager's home at 5, after a good 5K run at the gym, followed by a short soak and a hot shower to not just bathe, but wash my hair. I still don't have a place to shower in the house, so have to resort to bathing in the contractor's trailer, which is neither for the claustrophobic, nor the long haired.

I am excited. Normalcy is just around the corner. Maybe.

I'm really not certain which I want more, the bathroom finished or my walk in closet? There is nothing I want more after a run then a hot shower. However, I'm desperate for the closet. I need to sort thru boxes of clothing to see what fits, and what doesn't, to put away what I'll keep and decide what I get rid of. Doing that will a) give me both something to wear as well as added impetus to continue down the scale and b) help me to bring order out of chaos in the garage and barn which in turn will c) allow me to sort through and find other things I can put away, like say the rest of the dishes. I want that so bad I can taste it.

When Tom and I were having our bathroom redone, we showered at the gym.

Our other ideas were to rent a cheap motel room, or pay for a trucker's shower at the local truck stop.

And, I've remembered a third. You buy a 1 gallon plant sprayer.


They cost about $10. You shorten the long wand tube to suit, fill the sprayer up with water, seal the sprayer, and manually pump air into it.

Then, you spray yourself wet, lather, and spray yourself off.

You can warm the water by leaving the plant sprayer in the sun.
