The other problem we are having in the kitchen is the drawer pulls. I bought some from IKEA that are very clean looking and modern, but they aren't quite the right size. One set of drawers though had two sets of holes, so I was able to put the new pulls on. I LOVE them, and now think that I want to drill new holes in all the drawers to accommodate them, but how do you fill holes in laminate? I have oodles of putty from all of the holes we had to fill in the walls, but wouldn't that look bizarre? It's probably my only choice for now. As long as no one is going over and inspecting the drawer fronts, it should be OK. One thing we are definitely learning as we go is that NOTHING is as easy as you think it will be. We totally thought we'd be able to change all of the light fixtures in the house last Sunday. Um, we got ONE changed. Granted, it was a behomouth ceiling fan from the seventies, but there were five of us working on it, and it still took forever. And by the end of it, we all had super sore arms and necks from our efforts. The second lesson is that trying to move and do house projects with a toddler is not easy.
Oh, and our bathtub upstairs is peeling. I know that I need to google it and figure out how to handle it, but I'm kind of afraid of what I'll see. Like when Roxanne gets a rash and I can't bring myself to google it, in part because I can't stand looking at internet images of rashes, but also because I'm always I'll find out that she has some really weird and scary skin condition. Sigh.
