Now I have no kitchen. I just did the dishes in the bathtub. I’ll try to get a post up tomorrow!

    Better than peeing in the kitchen sink. ;)

    I haven’t had a working fridge in the kitchen for 5 weeks…. I hear you.

    Bummer. My hot water went out recently for a while and I reallllly needed to shower. So I ended up heating up several pots of water…it felt very little house on the prairie.

    Eep! No posts of tasty cakes forthcoming then.
    I moved into a hotel once under similar circumstances.
    Are you going to be living on BBQ and takeout?
    I hope it isn’t too painful for the duration.

  5. No kitchen, hmm? Does that mean you’ll be washing lettuce while taking a shower like Cramer on a Seinfeld episode? You could install a garbage disposer in the bathtub drain like Cramer did, too. Ha!

    Eeek! I hope you’re remodelling and not living in the backyard…

    Hmmm. I’ll stop complaining about having to share my hubby’s shower right now.
    I hope everything gets returned to “normal” post-haste!!!!

    Hmmm. I’ve heard of washing hand-knit socks while showering, but this is new to me. Could be quite efficient – killing two birds with one stone and all. Oh, you weren’t actually in the tub, you say?

    I didn’t have a working kitchen from August of 2004 to mid-April of 2005. I write a cooking column. It was awful. A nightmare. A horrifying experience that I hope to never undergo again.
    But my friends were happy cause I kept asking to come over to borrow their kitchen and make them food.
    I feel your pain and I’ll send you happy kitchen thoughts to hope that whatever is going on, gets taken care of post haste.

    As someone who just finished a kitchen re-do..and had to climb stairs with buckets of dirty dishes to wash them in the bathtub, I have to say “I’m with you here.” It was horrible and in our case, lasted several months because my husband only had time to demolish the kitchen during Christmas vacation…but the contractor got caught at another job and could not start until March. So, we did without for far longer than we should have. Except for the dish washing bit, we survived by putting one of the kitchen cabinets into another room, and hitching up the fridge, a microwave, and an electric fry pan. Worked reasonably well but we still ate out more often than I would have liked.
