Aint this a bitch..

The landlord is finally doing something about our miserable bathroom,and has hired a two-man crew to do a long overdue makeover.
That's not the bitch part..The bitch part,is that it's taking FOR.EV.ER!
Here's the progress over the first three days..

..Nothin' like stepping out of the shower,onto a luxurious piece of cardboard covering semi-rotten floorboards.
Did I say shower?
..I meant bathtub.


Don't get me wrong,I enjoy a nice leisurely bath as much as the next guy,but I don't take baths to get clean,I take them to relax,and unwind.
I'm really not a huge fan of coming home after a hard day's manual labor,and soaking in my own filth before bedtime.

By Thursday,the fellas had completed putting in a new sub floor.
Notice anything missing?..


By Friday,I was at last able to take a decent shower!..


Oh,..that missing item isn't really missing.
..It's been sitting in the kitchen for several days now,along with the new linoleum,which is all boxed up out of frame.


To be perfectly fair,the fellas are doing a good job.
It's just that they're doing it two or three hours at a time,and of course,they don't work weekends.

Maybe by the end of next week,I can stop shaving out of the toilet..

Just think....by summer you will be showering, shaving and peeing like the uptown rich....at least by fall for sure.

Remodeling is, with out a doubt, a complete and utter bitch. But won't it be fine when the bathroom finally has that new car smell?

LOL, you poor thing! :)

A few months back, Iwanski & I had to have the tiles in our shower replaced, and it also seemed to take FOREVER. I know what you mean about showering, because I was so relieved to finally be able to take a shower in my own home again. :)

I couldn't help but notice:

How many men does it take to put a roll of toilet paper onto a holder?

No one knows. It's never been done.

Most of my remodeling went pretty quickly, but since I tiled the bathroom myself, including the walls of the shower, it took about twenty years. Or seemed like it, anyway.

I feel your pain, Gawwwwd, I hate, hate, hate any shape of form remodelling, but when it's your plumming being ripped apart, the pain is double! Fingers crossed it finally ends in steamy, hot soaks in an endless supply of soapy, warm water.

Buy yourself a new duck to celebreate.

Ah yes I remember the remodeling blues - both as an intrepid do-it-yourselfer - yes think of that a hammer in one hand a saw in the other and the spirit level balanced on my... never mind that! and also as a home owner paying others to do work that seemed to go on for months! But in the end you will have a thing of beauty!

Not to worry, here in Rome the Vatican would probably say to offer this inconvenience up for your old sins and Divine Providence will take care of the rest.

What exactly is their payment plan that makes them so slow? The way my - wait. Which one. Oh. ... yah. That'd be my first husband. - the way he got paid made that crew RACE and do it over a full day.

You'll be happy to know I just deleted all sorts of meanderings and ponderings about you and your toilette. Do you smell delicious?

I suppose if dogs can drink from them toilets are perfectly suitable for shaving, although I'd hate to stick my leg in there to do it.
