There are a few things I have learned in the past few hours:
- When you let the grease and dust build up, it is soooo much harder to clean
- My children have NOT inherited the cleaning gene from me
- G-man should have listened to me when we were painting the cabinets years ago
- There are a million and one things I would rather be doing than cleaning the kitchen
Oh, and the paint is coming off. Yes....the paint is coming off.
My husband didn't want to listen to me years ago about sanding and priming. Or using a foam roller. NOOOOOOO.....he just wanted to get it done. Yeah, well in the years since we painted the cabinets, the paint has chipped off here and there. They are NOT smooth. And to top it off...I don't like the color (yes, I picked it out, but he refused to repaint them when I said I didn't like it).
Well, now the non-smooth cabinets have attracted every bit of dust and dirt. And I can't get it off. Or I should say that the hours it is taking me is driving me nuts. And if I scrub too hard, the paint comes off.
I am THIS close to taking a sledgehammer to it all. IKEA is a 30 minute drive.....I am going to go buy a new kitchen. Don't care at the moment.
The cabinets are crappy to start with. Oh why oh why didn't we re-do the kitchen back when we were young and stupid????? I hate it all!!!!
Ok....rant over. Back to cleaning.....
