Kitchen Renovation (Photostory)
It's Saturday early evening and the Jordans are at home.
Mike is reading the paper, Sydney is trying to open her animal cookies, and Adele is about to have a serious conversation about the kitchen.
So, honey, I stopped by Home Depot and spoke to the people in the kitchen department about their renovation process. (Adele)
"I was planning to do the work myself." (Mike)
"Open, mommy." (Sydney)
"Bring it here." (Adele to Sydney)
"Honey, when are you going to have time to do the renovation, yourself? Your schedule is pretty packed." (Adele to Mike)
"My schedule should open up in a couple of months." (Mike)
"A couple of months! I really don't want to wait that long." (Adele)
"I'm tired of eating out, and I just can't get inspired to cook in that kitchen. It doesn't make sense for me to unpack all the kitchen stuff and then have to repack it for the renovation. We should just go ahead and do it now." (Adele)
"Here you go, Sydney." (Adele)
"Honey? Are you listening?" (Adele)
"I'm listening." (Mike)
"So can I go ahead and schedule Home Depot to come out and give us an estimate?" (Adele)
"I think we should talk about this a little later." (Mike)
Typical. Mike wants to flex his muscles and do the job himself, and Adele wants it done right now. Let's hope they can come to a happy medium.
Here is the kitchen Adele was speaking of. I don't blame her. It needs some serious help.
