I've been using power tools. (LOVE my brad nailer!)
I've been... doing mysterious things that shall remain unexplained for now. ;)
The kitchen is in a state of disarray, of course, with the stove unplugged, the dishwasher wrapped in plastic, and the contents of the cabinets stacked all over. As I don't cook much anyway, this hasn't caused much trouble for me. Until today.
This morning, I was in bed sick (again... stupid stomach trouble that just will not go away...). Finally the guilt of knowing I should be at work made me drag myself out of bed and get dressed. I started to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, using a plastic spoon because of the kitchen upheaval. Still only half-alert, I dropped the spoon, and my peanut butter-loving dog grabbed it. Before I could stop her, she BIT OFF a piece of the plastic spoon and swallowed it.
Consultation with my vet confirmed there's not much to do except monitor her until she passes the piece of plastic. Oh, joy, I get to join my dog on her backyard excursions and watch her poop. :/ In the snow, if the weather forecast is to be believed.
But I won't let this ruin my enthusiasm. Barring any spoon-related complications, I'll continue working on the kitchen, and with luck, I'll have some finished projects to show you all soon.
In the meantime, feast your eyes upon my new sink. ;) Oooooh, shiny!
UPDATE Jan. 11: My dog yakked up the piece of plastic last night and is now totally fine.
