And with that, let the complaining begin!
OH MY GOD, REMODELING YOUR KITCHEN SUCKS!!!!
So many details.
So many decisions.
So many trips to various places to look at and insane number of things.
So very very many words!
Yesterday, I went to look at sinks and faucets. After waiting 20 or so minutes for the sales associates to work with other indecisive folks, it was my turn. I think people who work in overly priced home showrooms are all of the same cloth. Maybe it's the clientele they work with (people who have the time and desire to pour over every detail). Anyhow, as the sink/faucet guy was talking to me, all I could think was 'HOW CAN THERE BE SO MANY WORDS TO SAY ABOUT A SINK'. And after 15 or 20 minutes when we still hadn't considered all the details we needed to consider and as we rehashed some details I thought we had finished with, all I could think was 'we haven't even started with faucets, I will be here for the rest of my life'. And secondly, 'isn't it time for a nap'?
It's a sink. Essentially it's a A rectangular piece of something (probably stainless steel) that will spend its life filled with dirty dishes. How many decisions can there be to make about a sink? And, even more importantly, if you have to think so hard about a sink, how much will you have think about the truly complicated things?
I may never actually have a new kitchen, instead just an insane number of squandered hours!
Sigh, okay, I'm off to look at more sinks, faucets, refrigerators and dishwashers!
