New Bathrooms

We Have a Shower … Sort Of

IMG_1164

Kevin said they tore down the shower wall. They actually gave the toilet area, and the sink area, two more inches. I’m SO relieved on that front. However, the fly in the ointment is that they didn’t have enough room on the left wall to put the shower head – that wall is actually the back side of our rock fireplace. And the other wall, the wall on the right, next to where the toilet is going to go, is too skinny, so, that only leaves the back wall. This means, the shower head is going to be spraying toward the shower curtain.

Hmmm …

I’m not exactly thrilled with that, but we really don’t have a choice, otherwise; we’ll just have to make sure the curtain remains IN the shower so we don’t soak the entire bathroom floor.

I’m hoping the light is NOT going to remain where it is now because … ugh, that would IN the shower. We’re actually planning on putting two sconce lights on either side of the the oval mirror we plan on putting above the small sink. I’m also sweet talking Kevin into putting a recessed light above the toilet area so people are not having to do their business in the dark.

They placed the shower base in today and worked on re-routing the plumbing. I have no idea what they have planned for tomorrow. It’s sort of fun to leave the house with it looking one way and coming home to a bunch of changes at the end of the day.

I’m thankful that Kevin’s job is flexible enough that he’s able to come home and check on them periodically.

Politics

Why I Don’t Like Romney

He’s a watered-down Obama. He tells you what you want to hear. He’s “moderate.” And quite frankly folks, this country has had ENOUGH moderate politics.

It’s time to play hard ball – we need a conservative in office who’s not afraid to stand up to political correctness. You want this country back on track? Then stop being pansy-asses and take a stand against the nonsense that is going on around you right now.

It’s time to rip off the short-term Band-aids that Democrats are famous for when dealing with “difficult” issues and start building toward long-term solutions. This means TOUGH CHOICES and CUT BACKS.

Stop the whining – America is SICK of the whining.
