Is this a stupid idea? I have asked myself so many times but still decided to go ahead with it. Do I have a compelling story to write? Yes I do..Will I be able to write it..Absolutely not..becausr I cant convey thoa huge need to cook and bake for my kids Being and having lived in Africa for 30 years, coming to America was my dream..and living here.. I have been blessed with 2 kids and I adore them. I live in a condo say almost 900 sq feet..100 sq feet of kitchen or even less. My condo was built in the 70s..and in the year 2016,we still have not been able to get new stove or even cabinets..My kitchen has fallen apart and because of that I detest going into it. My kids are 4 and 2, have they ever had a brownie? No..have I baked a cupcake for them? NO..Have they enjoyed any baked from mummy since they were born ?No? Do they know what it is to join mummy to prep dinner in the kitchen? No. For years now,I have begged and begged my husband to let us get something contertops..but he wnt hear of it as there are more important things to do with money.,we have to pay bills,lught,gas,mortgage..thers is no dime for cabinets or gas stove.

Appliances since the house was built is still what,I have.we have fixed countless times. As for the cabinets...oh!!w As a woman,our home is the kitchen..and I hate mine..I hate coming home everyday..I hate it..I have cried my eyes out hoping I would wake up one day and hooe to find myself in a brand new kitchen but 10 years later,it has still not happened. Anything i get from you..will change our lives. .Please lets make my dream of an oven,cabinets come through.. Thanks
