. . .and why I need anxiety medicine!
It's been 2 days. My house is a mess. .
We have 6 people in a 4 X 4 ft bathroom. .
I can't find ANYTHING. .
The only toilet we have left has suddenly developed an incessant drip. .
And my 9 month old dishwasher has gone on strike. .
As of TODAY!!
The saga of the shower began when we couldn't find a decent two piece shower (2 piece so that we could get it into the house) that had shelving built into it. I looked, Kelsey looked. .we found nothing that I felt like I could live with for the next 30 years. The whole goal here was to get a NICE shower. .one easy to keep clean. .one that would stand up to 4 men (and 2 princesses). .and one that I could put all my beauty treatments in!! Really. .does that sound like it would be too much?? The day that I was going to go get the 2 piece shower in Wichita that we had found. .I read some consumer reports about the floors cracking out!! More than one report saying that!! That freaked me out. .so Kelsey came out. .re-measured some stuff and reported to me that he was pretty sure that we could make a one piece work. .and was PRETTY sure he could get it into the house. Hmmm.
Last night the shower came in the house. .but not without stress and a price. There's the door it must come in. .the door going out the west deck.
There's the two head haunchos trying to figure out how to gain 1/4 inch.
Here was the solution!! A sawzall blade. .you may now note the crack above Kelsey's head. .it's where his little blade is sawing through my aluminum siding. I'm sure my face was as green as the trim by this time. .but I have learned to stifle myself and keep quiet. .I usually don't see the big picture. .nor would I understand the big picture if I did see it.
My door and window came out. .
They are SURE it will fit now. Can you see the smug satisfaction on their faces. .or maybe it was the excitement of destroying something? I'll never know!!
Note the big, gaping hole in the side of my home!!!
I was supposed to be watching for clearance. .which is why the photo is a little fuzzy. .I clearly can't do two things at once.
Shower is in. .big gaping hole is gone. .door has been re-inserted.
This is a rare week where I will have to work M-F. .two family planning clinics. .school physicals for two mornings. .and clinic the rest of the working hours. The clinic is making the final step to computerized charting. .so I will have geek squad following me through clinic patients to show the REAL geek how to enter data on the tablet.
I am SOOOO glad to be working. .cause I am sure. . .
What I DON'T know WON'T hurt me!!
And I DO know. .
That the bathroom will be great when Kelsey finishes it. .
And everything else will be returned to normal. .
Except maybe the dusting. .
He doesn't dust!!
Up next. .on a happier note. .all the lovely things going on around my yard!!
Have a blessed day!
