I have this obsession with entering contests online. Not all contests. The ones that give away kitchens, kitchen makeovers, new appliances. Maybe you wonder why....
It is now 3 pm .... I am going to take photos of my kitchen, post them, then let you be the judge.
Hit pause now.
In the hallway we have a Rubbermaid shelving unit that is the completion of our storage solutions. Top shelf - box mixes, instant potatoes. Behind the boxes is a cake carrier. The second shelf is crammed full. There are home canned green beans and tomatoes, all manner of canned fruits and vegetables and assorted cooling racks, storage bins and cutting boards.
I did not do this for sympathy, or to ridicule Roger. Were it not for his abilities, and the generosity of our family, we would have much less than we do. I guess I put this out there to show people, this is my reality. I do not feel sorry for myself, it is what it is as the saying goes. We were able to cobble together the resources to buy the property, and have a very very very low mortgage payment. We have heat, we have dry, we have our little corner of the world and are happy here.
But I sure would like to have a real kitchen again.
It has been a long time.
And that is why I just entered another contest.
