The kitchen cabinets around the perimeter are knotty alder, while the island will be enameled and lacquered. Of course everything will be swept out and (semi-) presentable....that's about the best we can hope for by the weekend.
As my brother likes NFL football he prefers to work on Saturday's and keep his Sunday's open. I like college ball, so I prefer to relax on Saturday's and work Sunday's. This way we're both (sort of) happy. Still, giving up 2 back-to-back days off is hard, but in this economy you do what you have to to make a buck.
Think we'll ever see any semblance of old-fashioned (3 years ago) economic stability? I'm ready to slow down, not peddle faster.
