I ordered  my countertop today from Home Depot.  I couldn't get a sample but it's a solid surface in a white quartz finish with beveled edge.  I actually went to order it yesterday because I had a coupon for 18 month payments with no interest charged but the coupon wasn't good until today.  At first I was upset because it meant I would have to come back today.  Well when I came back today, not only was I able to use the special no interest financing but I also got an additional 10% off because it is a special order.  I ended up saving $108.00 which is great.  No pics to show but progress is being made.  When all is said and done I'll post the pics.

On another topic I ended a potential relationship with a man I genuinely liked and could have helped me tremendously on my house because he kept pressuring me to do things I did not want to do.  I had enough aggravation about it to say goodbye.  I will miss him as we like to do all the same things and have very similar tastes, but I'm not going against my gut feelings and so it is.

I found this motivated me even more to do some other things I've been meaning to do but haven't.  I'm anxious to go back and do some artwork and spent last evening at a journal club meeting doing just that and enjoying the camaraderie of the instructor and other friends.

Time to back up a bit and change course.  Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Love the progress you're making Peggy! Cutting that cabinet down was brilliant! I can't wait to see your counter top! xo

    Haven't forgotten about dinner one of these evenings.

  2. The counter sounds great! Just what I pictured.

    Neat photo too.

    sorry about the guy, but you have to follow your instincts.
