“Excel and kitchen remodeling?”, you ask? What can they have in common? Sad to say, not much. In fact they seem to be mutually exclusive. Sure, at first I was able to throw together some budgets and even a cool little to-scale grid drawing worksheet. But now? Who has time? It’s all I can do to drag my weary ass to work after a weekend of schlepping stuff and picking out faucets (and counters, paint, floors, lights, so many bloody choices). Not to mention the massive time-consumption of cooking in the living room and washing up in the basement half-bath.
There is a light at the end of this tunnel though, and by it I glimpse a future where more than three people can eat at our table without claustrophobia and where we will open the dishwasher and fridge at the same time, just because we can.
Equally important, I envisage a time when I can once again blog and regale you with tales of ever-more quirky and complex bits of VBA. I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to it.
In the meantime you can always revisit my classic self-referencing picture post.
I notice that my first paragraph has a decidedly British tilt. In case you didn’t know “washing up” refers to dishes, not bodies. I still remember my mom’s look of surprise when on a trip to Europe a friend announced he was going to wash up and headed to the kitchen sink, and her look of relief when he started scrubbing a pot.
Speaking of which, I’ve got to go so I can pick out a new dishpan. Pardon me, I mean a new “washing-up bowl”.
