Whew, where did all that time go? Its turning out to be a strange morning: I'm taking 1/2 a day off of work so I can be here in the morning when the contractor brings our countertop. But the contractor just called saying the roads are icing up and he may not be able to come by until later. When I said, "OK, but I need to be at work by 3" his response was a sharp intake of breath followed by a doubtful exhale.
Stay tuned: hopefully I will be able to follow up with photos of our new counter and sink. Won't that be worth waiting for?
