Alive and Kicking

In a play on Poltergeist, the movie, 'I'm baacccckkk!'  lol

Last week, was NOT good.

However, on Sunday, the kitchen was completed, backsplash and all. 

The floor still isn't done, though.  We have to go order that soon.

Here is a close up of the backsplash, and one of four decorative tiles in a coffee theme, of course:

I will post pics of the others over time... I took this picture at night and it doesn't do the color justice because there wasn't enough light.  I will retake some pictures soon.

Fuzzy had a week from hell last week.  It became obvious that trying to keep him off his meds at this time for allergy testing is just not going to happen.  So, back on all his meds he went. 

They are just getting up to speed now, and no, he was not able to do the Junior Police Academy.  We were all very disappointed. 

At least he made it school yesterday and today!  And, we were back at the doc, and fine tuned his meds a little, today, too.  Not much we can do.  The pollen counts are off the charts and his body/immune system is under attack.

Pumpkin Muffin even had a rough week, getting a rash all over her arms after playing outside in whirlwind of pollen.  Ugh. 

Anyhow, after many days of working on it, all the kitchen is finally put back together.  Phew... glad I don't have to do that again!

be well,

It looks absolutely beautiful, Dawn!  I love the backsplash with the coffee tiles.
I forget,  what kind of flooring are you getting?  Waiting for more pictures.
I have had bronchial pneumonia for three weeks, finally getting better.  May
have something to do with pollen count so high.  Hope your kids are better.  Pat

I noticed that you hadn't put in an entry, and I was worried that your son got worse..  I'm glad he is better--but there is nothing worse than having sick kids--it's a constant worry!!  I'm sorry!  :(  Your kitchen is beautiful though!!  I'm glad you got your special coffee tiles--very nice!!  :)  Julie

Thought you had been quiet!! Allergies are a nightmare but am pleased to say mine seems to have subsided a lot, I think that has a lot to do with improving my diet. More fresh veg and organic meat seems to have made a big difference, I suggest you try less processed foods, it really does seem to help.

Would love to see the kitchen in daylight.

I am soooo jealous

Loved your kitchen! Sorry to hear about Fuzzy and Pumpkins allergies. This is the first time ever I've had to deal with allergies. I'm guessing on my part it's an age thing. I ended using Claritin and it seemed to do the trick, thankfully! I love being outside too much to have that be a major problem. (Hugs) Indigo

The kitchen looks beautiful. Great design and installation.
Enjoy it, Bill

Oh poor kid, I know spring is rough on allergies. The humidity came back down here and I had trouble with breathing as soon as it hit. You need some heavy rain to get rid of the pollen a bit. Hope he feels better and Pumpkin too...love the kitchen it looks terrific...betcha can't wait to cook...love, Sandi

Hi Dawn,
Great new kitchen.  Congrats on that.  Allergy season seems to be especially bad this year ... too much pollen everywhere!

glensfork4 said...

Your kitchen looks wonderful!!!!!! I am so excited for you. I would so love to redo ours but it's not in the cards right now...maybe sometime. Sorry about the kids, I know how they feel I have allergy induced asthma and it is bad for me. Tony has been using his nebulizer like crazy as not to use his rescue inhaler all day.

Hope tomorrow is a better.....

Poor Fuzzy (and Pumpkin, too).  I hope he gets to feeling better soon.

wfhbear said...

So sorry you've had such a bad week (and the kids, too).  I assumed that too much was happening for journal writing.

Love the kitchen!  

Glad to hear the kids are getting back together.

When we were in the ER there were several kids hooked up to oxygen.  I could only guess these kids had asthma.  Hope the boy is better.  And the girl!
The kitchen is stunning.  Makes me want to cook!

Sorry you had such a rough week.  Pollen season goes on for so long, from one plant to another.  Hope this week's going better.  It's gotta be rough on Fuzzy to feel so bad.  The kitchen looks wonderful, especially the decorative tile.  Take care of yourself and family.  
                                               Hugz,  Leigh
