I can’t believe it is Wednesday night already! This day went by really fast. We won’t mention how fast January went by!
If you want to read some of my thoughts on maintenance, I did a guest post for Lisa’s blog today. She is another maintainer, so check her out if you haven’t already!
It was so warm today. If the roads weren’t so wet, I would have biked to breakfast today :D We were back at North Country today for bagels since we didn’t go there last week.
Sometimes I think I should buy bagels and have them at home, but then I think 2 bagels a week is probably enough for me. It makes them more of a treat that way.
Work was really spotty today. You can tell when the end of the pay period is because *everyone* works to get lines in and you kind of have to be a vulture for files. I usually have to work some after dinner every other Wednesday and today was no exception.
Lunchtime involved a new item:
I think they over flavor these. At least for me. Can you say dragon breath?
I even changed it up and had broccoli with lunch instead of dinner. I love to live on the edge.
While it was slow with work I did some more work in the bathroom. Some stuff is on hold because we have to wait until this weekend to pick up drywall, which slows down the work since I can’t do much without a wall! I have enough dry wall to do a couple of the smaller areas and I have been patching all the cracked grout in the tub surround to get ready for the tile refinishing this weekend.
We changed our mind on the vanity. This is the one we are getting:
This will work with our current pipe system. Inside each door is another drawer, so this vanity actually has 4 drawers instead of 3. Now there are 3 for me and 1 for John! This is a 48 inch vanity, by the way. The top will be a Stone Effects in Capri. It is more antimicrobial than granite (which we also looked at). We will be picking this up on Saturday.
Here is a picture of the sample of the faux cork plank, plus possible paint colors.
I am kind of stuck on that metallic gold color (Martha Stewart). I may forgo the stripes and just do the lower wall in gold. I can’t wait to get in the big stuff and really get to work. It’s a lot of crap work right now, patching, cleaning, cutting my fingers, etc. That not-so-fun part of rehab.
Are you guys tired of the rehab yet? I am obsessed. It’s even keeping me from sleeping because I keep thinking about it.
Dinner was standard baked potato with BBQ chicken. Are you tired of seeing that yet? LOL
It’s really filling and I ended up saving the grapes to eat later (which I am eating as I type this, actually).
Tomorrow is my monthly wrap up, already! I need to think of some goals for February, too.
