In just two days I am going to Jamaica to photograph the wedding of spectacularly hip Jessica Sutton to Alexander Maniatis, and it is coming not a moment too soon. I need a break from all things renovation. Yesterday's work revealed that the 5 inches of concrete we removed from the old kitchen floor had of course compromised all the flooring joists below. Yes the old kitchen tiles were set in 5 inches of concrete! How insane it that?!?! Our old house has amazing craftsmanship and bones, but all the crappy renovations slapped on over the years have made a mess of it. So in addition to all the rewiring we have to do, we now have to replace all the cracked floor joists. Another good news/bad news. I am glad we are finding these unsafe things, but all these repairs are taking away money from other areas of the project. So Jamaica, here is come! (This is what I feel our house looks like right now...only not in Jamaica)
Where I will be in 2 days. The wedding has the whole resort! It is nice that my big dilemma is how to pack all my camera equipment, SCUBA gear and wedding clothes all for only 3 nights. Haha. Thank goodness I have status on Delta.
