I'm a lot of things...

But I'm not a liar. Nor am I a person who misplaces my most prized possessions. As some of you know, I have been missing my passport for over a month.... I knew it would turn up. I felt it. I put off the extensive  and expensive process becauase i knew in my heart that there was no way!!!! no way!!!! i would have let that most important document out of my sight. so there i sat. then I moved. then i prayed. and then i got on  line.... then i prayed some more.... then i absolutely gave up. I asked my best friend in boston to help me report it stolen after I asked mom. mom did give me me a helpful address.... I decided to just get a local id...... procrastination..... To put it into the most basic terms.... Chris Hennessee, Saint Christopher, Wait, I have strings, Wait there's a passport in this pocket, oh, must be where I keep important things. must be my guitar case. True story.

Before and After! My Little Kitchen in Paradise!

I have been HARD at work on my new place in between work and fun! I have also spent some pretty good money at home depot and the local hardware store. It's so fun and pretty much instant gratification when it comes to home repairs. This is my first time actually fixing up a place on my own and I am having a blast! Yesterday I finished my kitchen floor!

Here are the old cracked and holy linoleum floors...

And my new and improved faux hickory wood laminate! Wow! It comes in individual planks just like real wood!

It took me about 2 hours to cut and lay it all. Not bad! Now for the rest of the house!

Here are the crusty bar stools I found before...

And after!


I painted the kitchen a color called "grasshopper wing" LOL! It's awesome. Now it's time to finish those old cream colored counters and get some new knobs for the cabinet doors and I should be just about finished!
