On the way to the house I told YBW I was hopeful there would be cabinets in the house. He reminded me of proposed timing and dates and surmised there may not be cabinets. He didn’t want me to get my hopes up and be disappointed. I agreed with his point but reassured him I would remain hopeful. I looked at it this way, if cabinets were in I’d be happy, if they weren’t it didn’t hurt me to be hopeful about it, because they’d probably be in the following week.
G U E S S!! W H A T!!
Y’all! I came up the stairs and squealed! YBW was behind me but I simply couldn’t move. He said, “Stop squealing and take a picture!”
Oh yeah, he wanted to get up the stairs too.
The photo below is from the dining room, you can see the fridge cabinet in the foreground and the oven cabinet in the back.
The island sides aren’t painted because they’ll be covered with the quartz waterfall.
Each of the bathrooms have cabinets too. Only, the loft floor powder room’s white cabinet is down in the ground floor bath and that gray one is up in the loft. And y’all, I need that loft loo to be all white, I have big wallpaper plans for that space.
Our conundrum was how to report the news without spilling the beans that we’re there trespassing each week?
We began to talk it out, YBW was like, so we know we’re not supposed to be on property without and escort. He stopped and looked at me, I’m over here like, nope nope. I know eventually we’ll be locked out of the house and our Sunday morning ritual will have to end, but I’m not ready for that to happen just yet.
What we decided on was simply stating facts and I wrote an email to the building manager that looked a bit like: Hey, these cabinets are in the wrong place. Thanks.
(I wrote the email because YBW was driving)
We haven’t heard anything…yet.
I’m hopeful they don’t start locking us out now, but if they do, at least I’ve seen those gorgeous kitchen cabinets!
I grabbed his hand in the car and was like, do you have even a teeny bit of squee? I mean I don’t expect you to be on my level of squee, but are you excited?
He said, “Yes, I am excited, but what is a single light compared to the sun?”
He totally gets me!
