Well hello blogland, It ' s seems I have been away forever. The truth is we have been so busy with school opening and running here and there, I just had no time for anything extra. Don't get me wrong I still have a ton of projects going on ( kitchen , table , chairs , etc) but no time . The kitchen is coming along, I did not want to rush it because, I wanted a $3,000 venthood without the $3,000. So anyway I am almost there and once I am done I don't want to look back and have any ( I should have done it different or I don't like that.) Just a peek.
