Week in Photos - 12/23/14

Happy almost Christmas to everyone in the cyber world.

This week was all about the construction taking place in our home. Only one room remains untouched by the craziness - my room. I have been holing up in it all week.


Day 1: removing the tub & surround and toilet
Day 2: The subfloor is laid. We had bubbling around the toilet and so the guys ripped it and fixed it. The wood under the toilet was wet and gross. I am so glad to finally have it fixed!

Day 3: The new tile is laid. My hubby chose it. Since it was a small bathroom, we went with something white.
Day 4: The new tile is grouted (Yup...we went with white grout. We really like white.)
Day 5: The tub & most of the surround are installed. Yes, we had to purchase a new tub which is disappointing. We had hopes of saving our old tub & surround. It was powder blue and the hubby successfully painted it years ago. He went to re-paint it and things ran a muck. The paint started chipping and peeling and it was a mess.

The guys are back today and they said we will see a big difference by the end of today. Here are some more photos from this week:

We had stuff everywhere this week.

I love the new surround. All those shelves!

Hole in the floor! It was fine during the day but it was creepy at night.

See? Creepy.

My new supplement. I have a hard time swallowing pills and the doctor gave me the chewables. This is suppose to help with my food allergies. It means I get PIZZA tonight! The doctor wants to know if milk still makes me sick after trying the papayazyme for a week. My guess is "yes" but we will see. (update: milk still makes me sick)

I hope everyone has a wonderful week! Merry Christmas!

Week in Photos - 12/16/14

Happy Tuesday. I had a pretty tough weekend. The pain started on Saturday and Monday morning I couldn't walk due to the pain. Thankfully it seems to be better this morning. Plus, I am off to the doctor today.

We have also delivered Christmas goodies to all 14 neighbors and a few more people we appreciate having in our lives.

The deer hunting season is over here in PA. What does this have to do with us since we don't hunt? (We aren't against hunting but we are against waking up at 4am to sit out in the cold for hours.)

Our contractor is now available! His crew hunted for the last two weeks. Gotta love rural PA. It makes me smile when the kids have off for the first day of "buck".

It will be nice to have a new floor down in the bathroom. It will also be nice not to hear random gun shots throughout the day.
We really didn't mind the blue linoleum (can we all appreciate the fact that I just spelled linoleum correctly without using spell check? Amazing.) from the 1980's. But, it was discolored under the heater. It is the last surface in our home now to be re-done.
