Toe Kicks and Barbed Wire

After almost 10 months, we finally installed the toe kicks and final cabinet in the kitchen. We had off for President’s Day and Chris’ dad helped him hang the last cabinet. It is the one above the refrigerator and now that it’s there, we’re not sure that we like it. The problem is that the cabinet is 3 inches wider than the refrigerator (probably made for above a built-in). I’m sure we’ll figure out what to do eventually but for now it’s just nice to not have it on the floor.

We still have to install the tile backsplash, trim and paint. None of those are critical to the functionality so they are taking a back burner while the weather is so nice.

The rest of the week we suffered from lack of motivation. On Friday, Chris had surgery to fix his receding gum on two teeth. Because of this, he is not allowed to do any heavy lifting or strenuous exercise for at least a week.

On Saturday, I worked on removing all the barbed wire on the top of our fence (it didn’t make us look like nice neighbors!).

It took about 4 hours to remove all of it because so much of it was under a lot of vines and overgrown bushes.

Chris bought me a camera for Christmas but we weren’t very happy with the picture quality so he did some research and bought a better model. He spent a lot of the weekend playing with the different settings. Here are some of my favorites of Tucker – he’s so silly sometimes!

On Sunday we took some measurements for our deck/patio and took Tucker for a walk. I am headed to California for a few days for work so Chris and Tucker will be living the bachelor life this week. Hopefully next week Chris will be able to do some heavy lifting!
