Demolition

Today is the day they are installing my granite! I'm very excited but nervous too! I hear so much pounding and breaking going on in there...I just hope everything fits right and it meets up with the tile backsplash ok. I hope they know what they are doing...As I am sitting here typing this, part of one of the green ledges off of the island just flew off and landed under the kitchen table! Oh my!! I guess I am going to have to replace those... maybe he will glue it back...Goodness! I'll let you know how this turns out...My heart is pounding!

Woo, hoo....happy dance!! You must be so excited to have that gorgeous granite installed. I loved your kitchen the way it was before, but I REALLY can't wait to see the new look. Keep us posted. ((Hugs)) ~Liz

Take three deep breaths and you'll feel better! I'm so excited for you! We've had our granite now almost a year and I just love it. I was a little scared of having it at first as I had read so many things. But it's so easy to keep and I just love it. I can't wait to see yours!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

It is going to be FINE, and it is going to be GORGEOUS!! In fact, I am sure it's all over with by now. LOL!! All the "pain" is going to be soooo very worth it when you see that beautiful kitchen that takes your breath away. Can't wait to see it!! The first night I had my granite, I wanted to sleep in there with it!
