My Patience is Just About Done

So Help Me Lord...give me grace. Quite frankly, I think I'd have been much better off just using Ikea cabinetry...cheapo stuff that it is. But no, big shot Erica just had to have the  real wood, dovetailed draws, shaker style which in the end...and I'm not there yet ended up ridiculously expensive and not without issues. I've done no stamping in three months. It was supposed to be near completion today, but when I went to sit at my countertop, I found it entirely too high. Short person that I am, I adjusted my chair which didn't help one bit. Of course, the installer had left already. So now I have to put forth my case that the standard cabinets thoroughly screwed into my newly painted walls are not going to work for me. I am praying he will understand...when he sees the awkward fit, and will un-install the two offending pieces and cut off at least 2 inches from the bottoms. I am certain it can be done, but he won't be happy about it. I have to point out to him that though he may labor for two to three hours it will then be done. I, on the other hand, plan on laboring at what I love to do best most days for the rest of my life. God grant me grace and mercy to do this for some years to come.

It's been so long since I've blogged and Blogger has changed so much, it seems I have to re-educate myself and that's sad since I am not a fast blog learner.

OK, I feel somewhat better now...but not much.
