This current Round Robin Challenge was suggested by Vicki of Maraca. The topic is 'Before and After' Being exactly as it says: anything "before" and, well, "after."
I briefly considered a photo of our Thanksgiving dinner before everyone ate and then again afterwards. However, I got busy and caught up in the day. Meaning I forgot. =) I thought okay, Christmas decorations. Except we will be doing that THIS weekend. IF things had gone as scheduled I could have shown you the before and after photos of our kitchen remodel. Instead all I have is before and 'in progress', which isn't the challenge. (sigh)
The kitchen before the start of remodeling. It had THREE doorways for such a small kitchen. And do you see the cord running along the door frame on the right? That's the plug for the refrigerator! REALLY! The kitchen had a drop down ceiling, pink 60's PLASTIC tiles and blue flooring. BTW, the kitchen photos were taken with my point and shoot that I carry in my purse.
As you can see, this isn't a true after photo as work is still in progress. The stove still needs to be replaced (after Christmas), walls and ceiling need to be finished, upper cabinets ... so much work still ahead! Oh and if it had been day time when I took this current photo of the kitchen you would be able to see more of the big window in the dining/living room. Everything is new in this kitchen ... or will be once the stove is replaced and the new overhead microwave is installed.
Okay so back to the entry, it now means I need to do some actual thinking to come up with a "REAL" entry for this challenge ... oh my, this is going to hurt! Then today, PAY Day came along and inspired this before and after entry! =)
My poor wallet before payday ....
And my wallet after I cash the check ... (sweet) BUT, it was before I paid bills, bought groceries, etc ...
And my wallet again after I paid the bills, got the groceries, Uncle Sam took his cut, etc .... (sigh)
That didn't last long! At least I have A dollar to my name! Shhh, I better not let it be known that a dollar is still in my wallet or someone will nab it, like my husband or daughter. Now be sure to check out the other Round Robin participants. I promise it won't hurt your wallet! =)
