Well, the first step in the reconstruction of our kitchen appears to be done. The electrician finished rewiring the room yesterday, and replaced our old, woefully-inadequate track lighting with two new large and lovely fluorescent units. Man, what a difference. Where we previously did most of our cooking by touch and feel, we now have the only kitchen in Woodland Hills that is so bright, it can be seen from outer space.
Seriously, I'm thinking of pasting a large bat symbol over one of the units and turning it on, just to see what happens.
