Do You Hear What I Hear?

Do you hear it too? It's either the sound of hysterical laughter or the heavens have parted and the angels are singing. I can't be completely sure.

Perhaps it's because of this?


Cue Etta James singing 'At Last'.


Aside from some tiny decorating changes it is officially done. I can actually take my toilet paper from off the wall and not from a paint can sitting on the floor. The quarter round has been painted a pristine white and is up. The trim is done. The walls are a beautiful semi-gloss green. Mint ice cream green to be exact.

I think I like it. I have to like it at this point. If for one reason only. I posses a towel rod. It's true! I no longer have to throw it over the side of the tub. Do you know how messy a bathroom looks with paint brushes, paint cans, thrown towels and tiny screws and bolts hanging about for FIVE MONTHS? Pretty damn messy. Enough to make one feel they might just go a tiny bit crazy. Add an instigating dog and a curious toddler into the mix and you just might have cause for a domestic dispute.

I think H just wanted to survive the holidays with a nice wife. Either that or the week he just spent using that bathroom while family was in town was enough to convince him that it was finally time to finish that long overdue task.

Now if I could only figure out how to decorate it....

Ok it wasn't quite this bad, but close.

  2. Hmmm. I've used a few public bathrooms over here that actually did look like the one in that picture. They are so gross and difficult to use.
