Phone call with my Pastor…

I got a call from my pastor today checking in on me.  In the conversation I happened to mention my kitchen rehab project.  When I said I knocked out some of my wall I could have heard crickets in the next county chirping.  LOL.  Then when I mentioned I might be building my own cabinets he did the politically correct thing.  He recommended a store that sells cheap cabinets.  LOL Oh ye of little faith…

My pastor does not know me all that well yet so he does not know I have my  arsenal of  paintbrushes and power tools because I just can’t hire people to do what I need to do right now.  Well actually I can hire them all day long, I just can’t pay them, so that wouldn’t be a good idea.   I think I do pretty good but I could be fooling myself and I could be making one mess after another. But its my mess and I am content with it most of the time and  I have to admit, I get a LOT of satisfaction out of creating things with my own sweat and elbow grease.  I like tinkering and if I had a house fully fixed up I think I would go crazy not having any projects.

I work best under pressure and I don’t like to make myself look bad so I now will have to force myself to top myself.  LOL.

  1. I’m in awe of your gumption on considering making your own cabinets! We redid our kitchen last year and though we did a lot of the work ourselves, we purchased cabinets and had them installed.

  2. Thank you. I am thinking it is going to be a last resort but last night the more I thought about it the more I really want to do it.
