A Mother's Rant: November 2007

Just kick your heels together...

Well, we are home tonight. Richard said that maybe we should have stayed at his mom's one more night. But I was bound and determined to sleep in my own bed tonight. I don't know what the morning will bring with the bath and all. There is no faucet, just a pipe coming out of the wall. Fun! It feels a little like we are roughing it or something.
Tomorrow the plumber comes out to put the faucet on and Wednesday we get painted. Thursday is Turkey Day and all the excitement that entails. I need to put together my house with nowhere to put anything yet.
Oh, well. It still feels good to be home.
Love you all.

The Bathroom

Well, we have a working toilet! Let the villagers rejoice!
By the end of today, we may have a working shower. The tile look really pretty. You should come see it :) All are welcome.
Love you all.

No Toilet

There is still no toilet.
I am reminded of Jeanette. "It is not growing. It is still not growing..."
I just hope that it does not get moldy.
Love to you all.

Update on the remodel

We do not have a toilet. We do not have a shower. We do not have a sink. What DO we have, you may ask. Well, we have a really pretty floor. We have a pretty light fixture that is also a fan. You can turn the fan on separately. As of today we have drywall.
On the upside the cat seems to have made friends with every single workman that has come into our home, until they make noise and then she is gone.
Well, here's to tomorrow. Maybe a toilet, we'll see.
Love to you all.

The Bathroom Remodel

On Wednesday, October 31st they (John the Remodeler and Edwardo, his assistant) tore apart my bathroom. The tub went, the toilet went, the sink and the vanity went. Also, most of the floor went to the dump. It was a little depressing to look at my bathroom with nothing in it, but I thought this would all be for the greater good. I will soon have a new bathroom.
Here we are on Monday and it doesn't look that much different than Thursday. There is a floor (not a real floor, a "sub-floor". In case the real floor can't show up we have a sub in place?), there also are glass blocks in place of a window.
I cannot go to the bathroom or shower or brush my teeth, or even wash clothes. The water is turned off.
The plumber is suppose to come today and put in the tub. Maybe he will put in the toilet at the same time. That would be nice. But I'm not counting on it.
On the upside it helps to keep my mind off where Clifford is and what he might be doing or being done to him in SERE training.
I love you all.
