Friday, we drove to Murray to pick up our new counter top, and needless to say, it wasn't ready. It was ready the day before, then it was damaged and had to be repaired. Please bear with me as this story has many layers...We were told before we left home the granite would be ready in 1 hour, so we headed north. Stopped and had a nice lunch before picking it up. When we got there it was not ready! They had only 10 minutes warning that we were coming, not the hour and a half they should have had. Big surprise. The sink was not set yet. As I walked through the shop I watched them place the pink sink holder stuff (i am sure that is the correct word) in. I also should mention I had a nightmare the night before that the sink fell out and broke in half. At this point the sink is hard to find, and I could not replace it! As you could guess I was totally freaked out about "giving it 10 min. to set" Really? A heavy under mount porcelain sink being held only by a few little dabs of pink sink holder stuff???? We were told to go to lunch (which we already had done), and come back in 10. I am anxious to see my new counter top, but it is upside down :( I could see the particle board and the bottom of my sink....I am freaked that there is not enough "pink stuff" holding the sink in. I know these are professionals, and i am the niece of the owner, and the cousin of the manager, but this did not keep them from damaging it before!!! OK, I know accidents happen, but.....I have waited too long to get this bathroom finished. I wanted it perfect! What would I do with an expensive polished under mount hole cut in a perfect 15" circle of charcoal mist granite. If the perfect 15" sink was broken? It might just take another 3 months to find another "perfect sink, faucet, and granite". Those who really know me know this is not an exaggeration! "please, just put in more "pink stuff" I never asked, I am not brave that way. It caused me a lot of stress the rest of the day. Sam kept telling me over and over, that these guys do this all the time...... Did my dream come true? Stay tuned...
We decided to drive and "find something to do". We drove up state street, turned down Williams Ave. to see Grandma and Grandpa Jaeger's old house. Then, headed back up state street where we found the beginning of the UTE parade. Parades and traffic can be a bit of a pain, so Sam quickly got out of there! (GO UTES!!!) Ash then asked if we could go to the president's house (the state capitol.) It looks a little like the WHITE house right? She is so cute!
Don't you love it!!! We had a flood a "while" back, and were forced to remodel. This is the first partially completed project. Hey, I am human. Full time nurse, full time school, full time mom, most time wife. It takes a lot of time to do these things, RIGHT??? Okay, probably not this long. At this rate I might have the rest of the house done by 2010!
Now, I just need to find a way to tell Sam that the paint isn't "quite" right!
Wish me luck!
