Emotional Remodel


So I mentioned that I haven't been getting a ton of sleep lately. Well, my poor hubby was the poor recipient of my lack of sleep. Late last week in my state of exhaustion I started crying, crying and crying all about his long hours at work, my cranky baby who doesn't sleep, the fact that we have 4 children and I feel like I am always two steps behind. (sound familiar?) (And no it isn't postpartum depression, it was a bad day thing) In the end I based my emotion at our bathroom! The bathroom is a remodel project that we have been discussing lately, but with no immediate plans to start. Certainly not right before the Holiday season and definitely not before Hunting season and can you believe my timing I also hit Football season, triple whammy! So to get to the point, the day after my crying spell I came home from dance classes to find my hubby hammering away at the bathroom. Walls are down, ceiling is out, tub is no more...progress, real dirty demo progress!! I am so excited!

We bought an old house and it is crazy what we find when we start a project. We found wood floors under the nasty linoleum. Pulled down the drop ceiling to find that the bathroom height is the 9 ft 10 in. height that the rest of the house is at. Also found an old chisel, but that wasn't nearly as exciting to me. So check back to see our remodel progress!

I know how you feel "always feel two steps behind! I'm glad he did this for you - bad timing and all - I'm hoping for a beautiful new bathroom for you! And a baby that starts sleeping a bit more! See ya.

Wow, this is the downstairs bathroom right? Big project! If things are still under construction by Thanksgiving I can be of service for you in whatever way needed!
Good luck with it...tell Chris (from his baby sister) to be safe!!
Lots of love XOXO

hahaha...great post. I have a dedicated hunter football watcher kind of guy that wouldn't lift a finger even IF I cried. LOL.

Kudos on getting the bathroom started even IF the timing is "off".
