Kitchen Floor

September 19th, 2021 at 12:10 am

All of a sudden there is progress -- fast progress -- in getting my kitchen floor redone.  Today the tile guys came and looked it over and made their recommendations.  Then I went to Floor & Decor and chose tiles.  On Monday they will begin demolishing the old tile.

It appears to the tile guys that there is another layer of even older tile under the current one.  Certainly possible -- these old buildings -- you just never know what you'll find.  They are going to go down to the subfloor and then install a new underlayer.  There will be a lot of cutting and piecing to do, because my kitchen is small and has unusual features, like an old-fashioned built-in booth in an alcove, so they estimate it will take 3 1/2 days.

My ex has already sent me about half of the money and the rest will come tomorrow -- he has a limit on how much he can send via Zelle.  Maybe I do too!  I've never tried to send a large amount.  Anyway, it should arrive in plenty of time.  I am really grateful that he is doing this, because it would be a real strain on my budget.  But it has to be done.  The old tiles are cracking like Saltines.

I got a breakfast sandwich and OJ at McDonalds this morning, because I didn't want to mess up the kitchen prior to the visit from the tile guys.  That was $6.  I also stopped at Walgreens and bought some probiotic gummies and a jar of popcorn kernels.  Total cost was $31.  Also did a load of laundry, so altogether my variables are up to 66%.
