I can see an end! I really can! The dishwasher... it has arrived at the store. Several days-no make that weeks ahead of schedule. The installer should be calling within 48 hours. The microhood... DH picks that up tomorrow on his way home from work. With the exception of something to store my spices in and some new decorations--- everything may be here by SATURDAY! Oh my word! I am sooo excited. I really need to paint!!!
