BUT! EVEN BETTER THAN ALL THAT! He installed a new sink for us. It's a HUGE single sink instead of our old double sink (which was rotten because it was like having two tiny sinks, so it was useless. AND since he was installing the sink ANYWAY, he installed a garbage disposal!!!! And a new faucet. With a separate hose/sprayer/thingy. And the sink is deep enough and the faucet is high enough that I don't have to go through weird maneuvers to get the Brita Pitcher under the sink!
Ohmigosh I'm so excited. I don't know what happened to me that I can be this excited about a sink, but I am THRILLED! Between that and the dishwasher (soon to be 2 dishwashers) and am much closer to having a space I can stand in that kitchen! Whew.
Sunday is a big appliance day. Our new washer and dryer is being delivered and the old ones taken away, of course. We didn't get the super-duper-whoopie model because that cost a ridiculous amount of money so even though I reeeeeally wanted it, we didn't get it. But we got a pretty nice model. AND our fleishig dishwasher arrives the same day!! So happy. We'll be in appliance heaven. Go us!
E is coming on Sunday to rip out the kitchen downstairs. And then the fun begins!!
