have you heard?

my kitchen is in shambles. speaking of shambles - we visited the shambles in york, england on our trip. it's an actual street that back in the day was filled with butcher shops and they used to just throw their scraps and other gross things into the streets and it smelled awful - hence the term: shambles. just a little trivia for you.
anyway my kitchen is in shambles - not that it smells like rotting meat or anything (sorry for the mental picture) but more that it's non existent. when we returned from our trip we were welcomed home by a couple inches of water that so graciously dripped, no poured, down from the upstairs bathroom. After water and mold removal, extensive drying and demolition we are left with very little - no walls, no cabinets, counters....nothing. so we begin again.
I'm trying to stay very positive and have a sense of humor about all of this but doing dishes in my bathroom sink is getting real old. oh and not to mention the nightmare of dealing with our insurance company who are trying to give us pennies to rebuild. the nerve.
so I dream of someday (soon) having this...

but then again I'd be happy with just being able to finally do something so simple as this....
