Like Molasses in January

Hello Interwebs!  I know you’ve been waiting with bated breath to learn how our bathroom remodeling comes along.  In a word?  Slowly… glacially…. like a Fiat Panda on an incline.  We are 6 weeks in; 6 weeks of gritty filth on every surface; 6 weeks of workmen arriving ~or not, depending which way the wind blows~ before I’m out of bed, let alone dressed, to stomp around making a racket and leaving ever more construction detritus but minimal actual work in their wake.  And now we are all but 4 weeks without either bathtub or shower.  The first 3 were less of a hardship for me as I was cat-sitting at friends’ who have lovely accommodations.  The Man would ride his bike to work and catch a shower there, as long as he arrived before the cleaning ladies take over, close the locker rooms, and do no-one-knows-what for half the day.  Sure, he’d like to bathe after the ride home as well, but as he was batchin’ it, it wasn’t the worst.  But now it is over a week since I’ve returned to negligible progress.  We don’t even have a bidet, for crying out loud.  No… wait… in truth, there is a bidet:  it’s in the living room, waiting next to the toilet.

Why is there more bathroom in the living room than in the bathroom?

    Wonders & Miracles! I texted the rental agent yesterday with the above information, expecting nothing. Suddenly all the tools and refuse were removed from the tub. Then the plumber arrived and connected a spigot! And he moved the toilet & bidet out of the living room. Despite an insufficient number of tiles being ordered, leaving for a few more days the upper walls of the tub/shower bare “concrete” (yes, the quotes are necessary), WE CAN BATHE TOMORROW!

    But the commode in the living room is sooooo convenient.

    Well, congratulations on the PROGRESS!!! One of my husband’s favorite sayings was that “the squeaking wheel always gets the grease”… and he lived by that. He never was afraid to complain and, by gum, he got results!
