I ran out to Reata South last night to see the finished kitchen. Wow. Just Wow. The job just exceeded all my wildest expectations. I was so very, very fortunate. I've seen the results of a cheap kitchen reno recently, which mine was, and it was head and shoulders over what I'd seen done in for-sale homes. That whole deal worked out exactly as it should have. I put some money into it, above the insurance settlement, and I believe it was money well spent. I didn't overspend or overdo and it looks finished and a quality job.
Had a nice dinner with the family. I just really have to get in the right headspace to deal with that stuff and is usually the case with me, the dread is worse than the actual event. I continue to struggle with that trait.
I'm not feeling well. Allergies or the start of a head cold or something has me not at the top of my game this morning. I'm going to a meeting this morning but I may stick with a treadmill walk upon my return. Slept poorly all night and then slept in until 8 this morning. Not an auspicious start to the day.
Food has been good. We went to Babe's for dinner, which can be a carb-fest, but I stuck with the smoked chicken and the green beans. I had a biscuit crust for dessert! Plus, the wait was only 20 minutes and I managed to shop for and find a new pair of snazzy looking sunglasses (not pictured above) from the shop next door. Talk about a great business model - the shop pipes in the call list from the restaurant!
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Have a vision.
