Day 107 – As Done As It Will Get

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe have big dreams for our kitchen and have been working on the cabinets since November.  We’ve sanded and primed.  We’ve rearranged and painted.  We’ve cut counter tops and shimmed appliances.

But no amount of work allowed us to get the job done the way we ultimately want before Ben’s party.  Today, I mounted the upper cabinet doors and put on the final coat of trim paint.  That’s it.  I can’t do any more.

And I’m not going to bemoan the fact that there is still a counter top to install and subway tile to place.  I’m not going to apologize for a job that’s not quite done.  My guess is, when this little project is complete, we’ll move on to the next.

It’s the truth of life.  At every point on the journey, we are in process.  Sure, we might find that perfect body size, but our minds still need improving.  We’ve planted the flower beds just so, but there are still weeds that need pulled.  The house is in the perfect location but we need paint, there are pluming issues, the windows need washed.

It’s just the way it is.

So, I’ll enjoy the kitchen for now…But I won’t fool myself into ever thinking that we’re done.
