Don't be jealous.

I'm on vacation this week.

What a great time to peel up the kitchen floor, right?

Seemed easy enough. Just peel it up and it would be ready for tile once we find something we like.

Original floor from when we moved in a little over 5 years ago.

Linoleum under the original floor, with complimentary mildew.

Another new discovery ... giant hole in the concrete, filled with sand over some electrical conduit (I don't even know what that is, but there's a whole in the concrete.).

A whole section of the wall that just peeled off due to massive water damage from one of the many hurricanes or rain storms we had. Finally time to rebuild this baby.

As you can see, we will be busy this vacation working in the kitchen. 

Our only comfort will be a nightly bowl of this.

Beau mixes his with a couple of scoops of this.

I eat mine alone and eat very small bites to make the serving last longer so that I won't want more once that last little melted spoonful is gone. That's a sad moment.

Updates on the project to come.

Now, let me think about my Thanksgiving menu. Recipes also to come.

I feel your pain. We are doing our bathroom right now. You should come see the picts. It may help you feel better about your house. ;-)
