I’ve made so many plans for this year. So far, almost of all of them have gone bust or have been forgotten. But I’ve been rallying on about the kitchen for a few months now.

The apartment we live in is owned by my parents. They moved to the country side last summer and left us in charge of the place. Which is awesome! We don’t have to pay rent or anything, we just need to pay all the billsĀ and to make sure theĀ house is kept up.

But, that’s the thing. The house is clean and all (all thanks to me), but the last time it was renovated was back when I was still in middle school. Quick reminder that I’m 28 years old now. It’s been a long time since anything has been done in the house (besides our bedroom and the appliances that broke down). We also got a cat and a dog, and there were some damages done. Not major damages. but the place could do with some improvements.

I’m fully aware that this place is not ours, but it will be a while before we could get a place of our own (with minimum damage to our financial status). So, I really don’t mind making some improvements, especially to the kitchen.

I was planning on buying things one at a time, not to disrupt our day to day expenses. But, that didn’t happen. The fridge broke down!

Truthfully, I was expecting the oven to go first.

I’m so glad my paycheck was great this month, and that Johnny is going to get his paycheck with 3 days sooner. We went shopping this weekend, and the fridge is full. If anything would go bad I would kick myself. We spent a good deal of money on groceries, since we made sure we have enough for an entire month. All the important stuff is in the freezer (meat mostly).

I am, in a way, happy that we are getting a new fridge. But, I was hopping to buy tile first. Then the kitchen cabinets, shelves and a new sink. Afterwards a new kitchen table and lastly, if needed, the appliances.

With that said, tomorrow we get our new fridge.
