Does it Sound Harmonious??

I was just reading somewhere that the kitchen is the "hub" of a home. A place for harmony and to bring the family together. Sometimes I wonder if it's only me, but I ain't thinking harmony when I'm in the kitchen.
Here's some of my thoughts...
~"Shit, I don't want to make supper tonight. Why am I the only one that has to make supper??"
~"We should just get takeout. Oh right, we had that last night...whatever, we'll do it again. Yikes...wonder what my mastercard statement will be like this month???(and then I cringe and shudder). Screw the budget and the diet!"
~"My family eats WAYYY too much. I just bought groceries two days ago and the fridge is almost bare!!! WTF??? There better be some snacks left!!(and I begin to look in the snack containers.)Are you friggen kidding me?? They ate every single fruit bar and left only the wrappers behind!!! Not even a cookie left!!!"
~"When was the last time I swept and washed my kitchen floor?...Oh...that's gross..what is that???"
~"I sure wish we could afford to put the new tiles down in the kitchen. Oh...this linoleum sucks!!!"
~"Speaking of sucking...these kitchen cabinets are ugly. So is the countertop...."
~"Get me outta this kitchen!"

Jenny, if it makes you feel any better about your kitchen ours is a galley/pass-through typically found in apartments. I'm tall and refuse to look in the bottom cupboards for fear of the sketchy lino-floors.. and we don't have children eating the good stuff but we've got a cat and dog tripping us up and crying (the cat) for food. sigh. Same story, different kitchen.. I think I'll stop and get take-out tonight!

Girlfriend!!! I thought I was the only one thinking those things. Esp. the "we should just get takeout" bit. It's true: a woman's work is never done.

I hear ya loud and clear!! Since being in school...being in the kitchen is a dreaded time of the day...and my kitchen floors? Well, lets just not go there...yep...not gonna go there!

I am in the wings waiting for a new countertop (mine is white tile, very wrong) and new tiles on the floor (old lino, very banged up) Of course, the reason I'm waiting is that it's a TON of work and I am just not there yet, you know?
