I call my kitchen the stupid kitchen, because, well, it’s just designed poorly. I have a sliding glass door where my table goes, which in and of itself, isn’t so stupid, because it’s common to see a sliding glass door in your eating space, but it’s a tight squeeze and on the other side is the door to my laundry room, further making the space feel like you’re being squeezed into a can.
My kitchen is on the first floor, but because we have a walkout basement, presents itself as being on the second floor. We have a two story deck, and the kitchen overlooks the farm and the busy street. During the summer, it’s not so bad, because there are tons of trees that block the view of the cars. During the winter, there are no leaves, obviously, thus you see all the cars.
Why am I telling you this? Well my laundry room is right off of the kitchen, and is rather small, and now that it’s winter? I can no longer get dressed in my kitchen until the spring.
And that just annoys me.
