My new Porn...

Screw naked chicks and men with big ummm FEET?

I have a wonderful new version of Porn in my life...

Pictures of kitchens...

not just any old humpty-dumpty kitchen...all sagging and crusty around the edges.

But pictures of bright NEW kitchens with BIG bold countertops and all sorts of shiney knobs.

Where brand new french door refidgerators humm along and shiney new dishwashers just scream "look at me - aren't I fancy"

After taking a long look at our finances Third Child and I decided to see what a contractor might say about putting an addition on our house...and not just any addition...a new kitchen addition...

{swoon ... faint}

So we meet with the contractor and go through the basics of what we want...

See this wall here - push it out about 12 feet...rearrage the kitchen, make the Utility room bigger and if you can make it happen a nice Man cave underneath the addition...as in a few years TC is going to be dealing with not only pre-menopause PMS from me...but the teen agnst of two teenage daughters...

So he comes back and says - well I can't give you a closer figure because we need to get a structural engineer out here but I think the cost is going to be somewhere in this neighborhood...

And that Neighborhood is quite expensive...but within the amount we could spend...

SO let the fun begin...

Really is it so wrong to get all hot and bothered by a GE Appliance catalog...

I am sure someday soon TC will be calling me from our bedroom and when I get there he will be stark nakkers holding just a Kitchencraft cabinet catalog and saying "Here honey let me read to you all the different cabinet pull out options...."

Oh yeah baby you know just how to get me in the mood....tell me more about knob options too

Been there, done that, green with envy! Can't wait to do it in our new house, going back to a pathetic kitchen sucks!
