The hubs and I decided to tell my parents we were thinking of moving back to New York when we were sitting at brunch one day and my mom is telling us her grand plans of redecorating our kitchen. She had recently put in a dishwasher and a garbage disposal, and was planning to put in new countertops and a backsplash.
We figured that after we told them we were leaving they would decide these upgrades were unnecessary. But no, not my mother. She lives for a good project.
I was surprised how big an impact those two changes made in the kitchen. Not to mention that I’ve packed up most of our kitchen belongings so the countertops are nice and clean.
Next project: packing.
