View more pictures of our kitchen remodel

November 10-17

Dear Family,

I can't believe that it is half-way through November already. James and I have been so busy that the time has just flown by. We completed the tear-down of our kitchen and framed up a wall in one of our bathrooms. We have been waiting impatiently for the drywallers to show up and put the drywall up in the kitchen so that we can move on to other stuff. They are supposed to come this Wednesday and I think I will scream if they don't come on time again. Our plan is to paint this weekend so if they don't come, we will be another week behind. I suppose that is one of the hazards of remodeling though.

My work has been in an uproar lately because the girl who did all of the scheduling and purchasing quit without giving two weeks notice. I have been given a bunch of her responsiblities and am a little swamped with it all, not to mention that my computer keeps bugging out so the pile of work grows ever higher.

We went and saw the new Harry Potter movie this weekend with assorted members of my family and Jenni. The movie was quite good and followed the book very well. We all enjoyed the evening of pizza eating and movie watching.

James left this morning for Las Vegas with a friend from work. He is going down for the biggest computer geek conference in the United States, COMDEX. I'm sure he'll have things to tell about his trip in next weeks letter. I hope he has a good time.

Today in Primary Jenni helped me with Sharing time, and it was fun for the kids to have a visitor. We talked about being grateful and Jenni told the story of Jesus healing the blind man. Then we colored thanful turkey's, the kids seemed to enjoy the coloring and the story. I was grateful for Jen's help, because I felt very under-prepared and she did a wonderful job.

That's it for this week. We are grateful for all of our family members who give us so much help and support. We love you all!

Nov 25

On Monday and Tuesday (18th and 19th) I was in Las Vegas for the yearly Comdex conference. Comdex is a computer tradeshow. I went down with three friends, Jason, Ben and Adam. We enjoyed seeing what is up and comming in the computer world. We also went to several good resturants and generally had a good time.

On Wednesday the drywallers showed up. By the end of the day the kitchen and bathroom were finished. On Thursday and Friday, the mud and tape went up. We are hoping that the drywall will be finished and ready to paint by Tuesday.

On Saturday we tore up the floor in the kitchen and spent the day screwing down the subfloor so that it wouldn't squeek anymore. We are really enjoying the silence of the floor!

I think that about wraps it up for last week. I think that the next week is going to be crazy! We have to paint and get the floor down, plus fit in Thanksgiving before our new cabinets are installed on Monday (dec 2nd).

James and Miekka Lance
