Womp womp

I fail at NaBloPoMo. I was so busy and then so tired that I completely forgot to blog this weekend. Oh well, what can I do?

We're pulling up my beloved tile floor which means that I need to figure out what kind of tile I want to replace it with. I'm not a huge fan of hexagon tile but I'll make it work if I have to. I do think I want a border around the room, though. Maybe black?

We also got a tub this weekend! Kevin checked it out on Friday and we picked it up on Saturday with the help of my aunt and uncle. I have to scrub it down and paint the outside, probably black. Do I want to go shiny or matte? SO MANY DECISIONS!

Day twenty two

We got a tub! We're picking it up tomorrow. And Kevin found a super great vintage housewares store that we're gonna check out again tomorrow.

And was this week seriously the longest week ever? I feel like I did so much but still didn't get anything done. Hopefully next week will be better. I am working four days but no one will be around On Friday so hopefully I can actually finish some stuff. Damn.

Day twenty one

I don't know what to say today. Thirty days of blogging is a lot of blogging.

Anyone want to look for couches for us?

Day twenty

Watch Trapped in the Closet if you get the chance. Seriously.

Also, my Tigers traded Prince Fielder for Ian Kinsler. Please please please just sign Max Scherzer to an extension and I will be happy.

And Kevin is home a day early! Hooray!

Day nineteen

I'm bummed because I don't know if we'll be having Second Thanksgiving next week. We'll be in the midst of reno, our house is a total disaster, and I really would like to have a lot of our stuff packed by then. We'll do it at some point before Christmas, I'm sure, but probably not next week.

I heard this story on All Things Considered on my way home, about Thanksgiving trends in food magazines, and I definitely want to include this carrot mash (maybe...it has mint in it) and also a bruleed pumpkin pie. Just thinking about it makes me even MORE SAD that our meal won't be next week! Waah!

Day eighteen

Almost forgot to blog again but I remembered.

I goofed on the fixture ordering. It takes 2-3 days processing, 2-3 days shipping, not counting weekend. If I had ordered the stupid stuff last week when I was supposed to, I'd be fine. Instead we will be delayed. I also had to email the company about the tile because Kevin didn't get around to that. So hopefully we will be in this house by December 10, but who knows at this point. Ugh.

Day seventeen

The bathroom is literally down to the studs, the floor, and a ceiling. One of the reps I work with is pretty handing and he came out to the house to help me with the rest of the demo, which means the tub is smashed and in pieces, and the plaster and lathe are down.

I did not order bathroom fixtures today or yesterday because yesterday I thought, oh, maybe we can save the tub and refinish it. But that did not happen after the tub was smashed to bits. I need to measure the door frame though so I can make sure that we'll be able to get the new tub in the bathroom.
