More Potty Talk

Well, it's time for a bathroom update. As we all know by now, the vanity top will not be here until Monday morning. Despite Jim calling the company we ordered it from and yelling at them. He thought I was too nice when I received the information that it would be another week to receive it. Did it change anything when he got ugly? what's the point? In the meantime the plumbers came on Wednesday and hooked up the tub and shower and installed my toilet. Yay! I once again have a pot to pee in! I just can't wash my hands afterwards... Needless to say, I haven't used it yet.

Today the carpenter installed the apron on the tub, as we decided to put a tile panel on it to give it more of a spa look. Then he caulked everything that needed caulking and sealed all the tile and grout on the shower wall and floor. It is now safe to take a bath or shower in there, should I so desire. Since I haven't figured out how I am going to protect the window in the shower yet, I won't be using it tonight. I also cleaned the three mirrored medicine cabinet doors and found a chip in one of the mirrors. It is not that noticeable, but I am concerned about cutting myself when I clean it as it is sharp. A call to the company we ordered it from (yep, same one who sold us the tub and every other blasted thing in the bathroom) elicited the reply that I need to call the manufacturer directly. Customer service at it's finest.

The good news is that I will not have any workmen in the house tomorrow, so that will be nice. Katie just got home today for spring break, so it will be nice for her not to hear hammering or drilling at 7:00 a.m. After Monday everything should be totally done. I hope. Fingers crossed...

Sounds like progress.

Wow, seems like Katie just went back to school after Christmas break. How quickly has her freshman year gone?
