So to continue . . . Yesterday the oldest and her fiancé went with me to Ikea to get a new countertop and brackets. Last night Hubby took the box from the countertop and used it as a template. Today he will cut it out. In the meantime I am using this time to clean out and reorganize the kitchen. This is something I have been attempting to do since I left work, but never really got to it. Goodwill is going to like this turn out.
