My mother and I just finished 9 hours of labor; the delivery is set for June 26th.
I told my Jermaine that I did not want stainless steel appliances. They’re overrated. They cost more, they have black trim, they show fingerprints, they aren’t magnetized, and there is about 40 different type of stainless steel. I told him that white would be better, it would brighten up the kitchen, it would be a breeze to pick out. I told him that if he wanted stainless steel, he would have to pick it all out and he better not tell me how much he spent.
My mother (in Maine) and I (in PA) began our day with an early morning call: 7:30am. By 9 she was telling me all about the LG appliances in Home Depot. By 10 I was in Home Depot (in PA) looking at appliances (stainless steel), by 11 I was in Lowes looking at Fridgidaire appliances, by noon I was utterly confused and wondering how I was in the middle of this mess. By 1:00 I was online, researching appliances…(why do they make titanium refrigerators – they don’t match any other appliance!!!!). By 2:00 I was in Best Buy looking at their LG appliances. By 3:00 I was back and forth between Jermaine and my mother (who was calling me from the Home Depot store phone because she couldn’t get a signal on her cell phone in the store). By 4:00 I was ready to skip appliances altogether and move back into the stone age – rubbing sticks together and cooking over an open flame seemed more appealing than choosing an oven. At 5:00 she finally executed the sale at Home Depot. Then she had to visit the kitchen design dept to add the cabinet frame to our kitchen cabinet order (to cover up the ugly black side of the SS refrigerators – why do they do that?). By 6:00 we were both sweaty and tired from the ordeal.
This morning I’m toying with the idea of changing my refrigerator and oven selections. (Don’t tell my mom).
