We finally started the demolition of the kitchen today. I'm pretty excited. It was sort of magical. Todd and his crew showed up this morning and took out most of the cabinets. They've already moved them to the garage and laundry room. I can now start stowing things in the garage. The house has been full today. The window rep dropped by, as well as the yard grader. It made me tired just watching them. I went and trimmed our copse for a while just to look busy. Three members of the kitchen crew are from El Salvador. They liked my banjo playing. They play the guitar and are going to teach me some Salvadoran music. How cool is that?
