Is it over yet?

Nope.  Still not done.  It's really only tiny bits of things that need to be finished.  All of the cabinet doors were installed in the laundry area as well as the few that were missing in the kitchen.  I got kitchen stools for the island and the desk and we bought a sofa for the family room.  I'm waiting on a new window that I realized was broken when I went to wash it.  Also the cabinet pulls need to be installed on the new doors.  I need a mirror for over the powder room sink and a chair and some rugs.  We have lots of art work to hang too but I have to wait for the painter to come to do touch ups first.  I figure all in good time but I would really like to not wonder who will be coming into my house every day.  And maybe the dog could stay home for once.

It's been a very long haul but I would do it again in a heart beat.  A nice kitchen makes spending time in it a real pleasure.  There are very few things I would change if I had the opportunity.  I'll have to get things together and post some updated photos when everything is done.  Today is kid #1's 14th birthday and the other one is with the entire 6th grade at camp until Friday.  I hope he has fun.  Kid 1 already is.  He's getting exactly what he wants for dinner (finally) and he already got his big gift this morning.
