|Old cabinets with No Shelves inside.|
It's true. Ed was 30 minutes away watching his dad for three days. There was no business for me to do because cemeteries are closed on holidays. I was home alone. With only my trusty dog Pugsley to keep me company and he sleeps most of the day in his old age. I was bored and decided to go into the bath/laundry room. Looking at the cabinets hanging on the wall above the washer and dryer, that served almost no purpose at all, I decided that I had had enough. I got out a screw driver, hammer and pry bar and started ripping the cabinets apart. When I came to a three inch long screw that broke off in the wall, holding a brace to the drywall, the pry bar became my best friend and worst enemy. With a quick push at one end, the screw came loose, the board went flying and the sharp edge of the pry bar found a vein in my left wrist. Before I even knew that the screw came out, the blood was dripping on top of my new washing machine. A steady stream started flowing and left a trail across the wood floor to the white bath tub nearby. A towel and tight pressure was very quick to follow. Running through my mind was, how do I explain this at the Emergency room? Home alone on a Christmas day and I decided to slit my wrist. Fortunately, the cut was not deep enough to continue bleeding more than a few minutes. I wrapped my wrist tightly and continued my project.
|Sleek New Cabinets!|
|Lots of Storage Space|
I had already purchased the new cabinets from IKEA and went ahead and put them together. I was proud of myself for getting them hung on the wall by myself as well. The cabinet doors had to be ordered and were delivered just today. I am quite proud of yet another project that I accomplished single handed. And most of this one was in fact, single handed.
I must also add that my wrist is healing nicely. Only a slight scar to remember Christmas 2014 by.
