I knew that it had been a while since I last posted.  I didn’t realize how long till I just signed in and saw it was back in September!  Wow.  Things have been busy around here.  My parents were here for 2 weeks over Thanksgiving.  They left today, and I am feeling quite sad at the moment.  I put on Christmas music as it normally cheers me up, but I feel more down.  What gives?

I enjoy my parent’s company very much.  They know when to offer advice and when to stand back and just let things flow a course.  This visit was especially special, as I got to spend a lot of time with my dad.  We were in desperate need of renovating our master bathroom.

Here’s why

That is what 40 years does to a shower…at least think it is the original shower.  The wall buckled at the bottom because of water damage.  I put a temporary patch on it using plexi glass.  It was a pretty good patch job for what I needed it to do.   After many bids of renovating and seeing we could not afford any, it was up to us to figure out a solution.  In came my parents with an option to work on it over Thanksgiving if we could save the money.

So, I got to help my dad tear down and put back together the bathroom.  Let’s say a 6×9 room is quite tight for 2 people to work in!

It was great seeing things get taken out of the bathroom, and I enjoyed seeing the progress being made.  I don’t have a picture of the finished bathroom yet, as I have  few decorating details to add to it.  But here is the new shower right after it was grouted.
