Can we rewind and start it over

It is barely after noon and I'm seriously reeling from today. I went to the post office this morning to get my passport paperwork processed and I was informed that the US Passport Authority will not acknowledge my existance. Apparently my birth certificate wasn't processed correctly when I was born, or something like that. I'm not sure exactly how to get this fixed (I've been given a phone number), but I'm positive it's going to be a royal pain in the ass.

Then I was told that I'm going to have to replace my kitchen cabinets and a portion of my wood floors in my dining room. All that from a dishwasher leak that I discovered on Christmas Eve.
As soon as I get over the OMG DOOM! MY HOUSE IS FALLING DOWN! I know I'll be excited about new cabinets and my floors being refinished all at the expense of my insurance company. For now I just feel sick to my stomach (that doesn't exist).

Oh, and my oven is still broken - Waiting for a new coil...

So, I obviously need some serious pick-me-up therapy.
  • Ice Cream? check
  • Shopping? hmmm...

I do need new cabinets and get to refinish my floors. This could be fun.

This is my kitchen right now:


The cabinets will be replaced, probably the counter tops too. I'd like to keep the coloring of the flooring. Suggestions? Links? Help me out.

Suggestion: drink all the wine that's on top of the cabinets...

Great idea Bill, but those have already been drunk - drank? drinked? Them is empty! I'll just have to add to the collection
