Yesterday I was on my feet from 9am to 10pm almost continous. By 10.30pm I couldn't move and barely made it to bed. This morning it wasn't any better with the standing. I think I walked like an old woman.

But then what won't you do for your new home.

My Mom called me like 5 min before I had to leave for the train to ask if I had time this afternoon. We need to have a look at kitchens and bathroom furniture asap because the plumper and the electrician need to know (asap) where the various kitchen and bathroom things are going to be. *headdesk*

The electrician comes today a 5 to talk about everything - the whole electric set up in the appartment will be redone from scratch - which is actually good for us but got really hectic yesterday night. Sascha came home from work at 8 and then we had to go to the new ap and do the whole layout of outlets, switches and lighting - with only flashlight light :D

So I had to leave at 10am to "the big city" to run some errands for Sascha, bought a new book (man am I proud of that one, first one since Christmas) and was home by 1. Then directly to the kitchen exhibitor whatever, where we were till 7.
OMG, there're way to many options to chose from. It's mad. But I think I've found one design that I really like ...

(45 min later after a phone conversation with my parents about various new problems *headdesk*)

... with burgundy red fronts and birch for the countertop and corpora. We'll see how it turns out.

And now we have to buy and lay out tarp to cover up the carpet ourselves. *Argh*
And the whole plumbing thing turns out to be way more complicated than we thought.

*off to read that new book now*

*g* I remember when I did my place when I moved in. It's ridiculous - you go 24/7 but you just can't stop yourself because you need it to be just right...

Oooooh. The kitchen sounds lovely. Picture?

What book did you get?

My head is all full with things that need to be done, but I have no idea where to start. So I'm going to wait and see how things turn out.

Sadly I have no real pic of the new kitchen. The one I have isn't very good and also the colors are those I want it doesn't at all look like the kitchen I want.
But I'll post pics of the new home as soon as we do something in it.

The book is actually in German, because the auther Ralf Isau lives like 80km from where I live. His books are really awesome and very intricately written. He blends reality with fantastic elements and it's just fun to read. I don't think his books have been translated into English, I know of Spanish and Japanese.
The one I've read this week is about a man who has a photographic memory and can't forget anything and historian, who set out to find a hidden treasure and a possible earlier version of the Declaration of Independence. It's hard to describe.

*g* I remember that feeling. It'll all come together hon.

Hee. I'm so excited for you. I bet that whatever you've picked is gonna look awesome - so I shall wait patently to see the finished results.

Nope. Haven't heard of him. Sounds pretty cool though. I'm reading yet another book on the history of writing. It's fun to see the tiny contradictions *is a dork*

ps - All the con stuff going round is making me sooo excited for asylum. I hope we get relaxed flirty Jensen *bounce bounce bounce*
