She has a BUNCH of projects she's worked on, but her kitchen? Oooooh.
And I do believe I need to steal her soffit treatment over here at Elizabeth Hill. Because it is said that
My soffits are non-functional (meaning they aren't hiding any ductwork or mechanicals underneath them). And while I don't like them? I know better than to rip them out. I'd just be asking for disappointment there - what, with Zuddy's honey-do list not being touched as it is.
So, enter Rebecca's project:
But imagine it HERE:
On a heavier note. I realize it's frivolous to be writing about home projects and musing about kitchens and belly-aching about my 3 year-old kitchen project when the people of Haiti are struggling and hungry and homeless. I've been glued to the news coverage and it's really hitting me hard...it all feels so......bad, you know?
I feel helpless to do anything. I've honestly been wondering how I can get down there and help. But what the heck would I help with?
I'm not a medical professional.
I have no significant amount of money to give - or even money to get to Haiti for that matter.
And then I don't know if my heart could handle what I would see when I got there.
But I'm sure the Haitian hearts can't handle what they are seeing and experiencing and living every day. So then it seems frivolous that I'm even saying that.
So - suffice it to say that I will not be purchasing my materials for any work on the kitchen next week. The small amount of 'extra' money from my weekly budget will be going to Haiti.
And, yes. I feel like a fool even bringing up ugly soffits when so much suffering is going on.
I'm lucky to even have soffits.
