no countertops today

We got a call this morning from the granite fabricator. As they were cutting our slab yesterday, the granite cracked. They have to start all over again, and it's a four-hour process, so the soonest they can get the countertops to me will be Monday. Another weekend with a kitchen like this. Boo hoo!

But you know, I was thinking about all this. When I was growing up as the daughter of an Air Force enlisted man, moving from base housing in one state to base housing in another, I would never have dreamed of having such a nice kitchen, even with the old tile countertops. (I would never have dreamed of kitchens, but that's another story!) So to be able to afford nice granite countertops is totally a count-your-blessings kind of a thing. I can wait another few days.

You'll look back on this months from now and it'll all be worth it. Can't wait to see pictures of the new kitchen when it's done.

All the trouble will be worth it, when the countertop is finally installed.

Just curious -- why would it crack? What caused it to crack as they were cutting it?

what a pity that the countertop broke. I hope you have a lot of fun with it when it's finally installed :D
