“We’d be happy to put your new kitchen island together. Don’t hire a carpenter!” My 87-year-old parents moved recently and desperately need more kitchen storage and counter space in their new place. The island kit had been on back order from Wayfair for quite a while and it had finally arrived!
What were we thinking?! The pieces were everywhere!
The hardware was everywhere!
And the tools were everywhere! Four hours, six minutes, and five broken screws later, we were almost there.
But it was 7:30 PM, our gas tank light had come on as we were parking, and home and dinner were 45 minutes away. Time to wrap things up for the day.
In my dreams, it’s all assembled and ready to put to use. Soon enough.
Thanks for wondering and wandering a bit with me today. And many thanks to the crew at Two Writing Teachers, and the extended SOL community, for giving us the time, space, and encouragement to live the writerly life here every Tuesday throughout the year and daily during the month of March.
