The closest the spouse and I ever got to divorce involved plumbing. That's why, when the spouse said, "It's time to redo the bathroom," I thought it was a good time to leave town. I spent spring break in Texas with the grandchildren. We took walks to the park and went shopping for shoes. We went out to eat and did craft projects. We went to Dallas and learned about history (the Texas School Book Depository and the grassy knoll,) explored the Perot Science Museum, and visited the Fort Worth Zoo. I came home after 10 days and the bathroom was completely gutted...not remodeled, gutted! Here's what it looks like now:
Believe it or not, this is progress! This bathroom is tiny, the size of a small walk-in closet. The new shower walls are framed in and the plumbing is hooked up. New sub-flooring has been installed and is ready to be tiled. Most of the minutes on my cell phone have been used this month for plumbing. No, I haven't been calling the plumbing supply company ordering parts. I stand in the bathroom with my phone while the spouse, out in the pump house, turns on the water. My job is to monitor for leaks so he can turn off the water before there's a flood!
I love watching those remodeling and renovating shows on TV. They can renovate an entire house in a half hour show. I have noticed, however, that they never have to run back and forth to Home Depot for missing parts and supplies. That's probably why we're into month two of this project, but, we haven't called the divorce lawyer yet.
