Water Heater Woes

I don't even want to go into it. Except to say that my two year old water heater is causing nothing but problems during this remodel, and I may have to choose between hot water, and a table to eat food at. I could so never ever flip houses for a living. I just want the house to be done, painted, livable, preferably with hot water, and then I want to elsewhere on vacation and take a long nap.

On the plus side, my new kitchen is drop dead gorgeous, and I am going to cook up a storm when I get in there. This weekend we are working on the doors, patching them, sanding them, priming them. Here's a word to the wise: if you ever embark on a remodel of a 90 year old house, do not try to reuse your old doors. It seems like a nice idea: solid wood doors, original to the home, charming. There has been nothing charming at all about reusing these stupid doors, and I wish I could go back in time and clamp a hand over my mouth and just get new doors. All this work and money, just so I can say the wood the doors are made out of is probably 150 years old. See? I've said it, and its worthless. Too late to change my mind, though, so I am going to become one with my sander this weekend. Just kill me.

On the plus side, my new kitchen is drop dead gorgeous...

Have a lovely, football filled weekend. Go Niners. Not that I care, but I have a little home town pride.
