Cloudy With A Chance of Hot Chocolate
Another busy weekend. L spent most of it working on the console for the bathroom remodel, and now it looks like this:
On Saturday afternoon we ran and picked up the remaining tile (the glass tile mosaic) and exchanged a long towel bar for a shorter one. I think we're ready to start. Our contractor buddy gave us the bid, and we're so excited to start. L and his dad will do all the tile themselves to save lots of $$$, and L will help our friend with the backer board that the tile hangs on. This is going to be the most beautiful bathroom - its little but it'll pack a punch! Before, when the kids were still here it was the ugliest, most disgusting bathroom ever. Hard water had destroyed just about everything, and the kids weren't easy on it. But now when people visit, they'll just want to go into the new bathroom and marvel at it's beauty. Can you tell I'm excited?
Our beautiful weather disappeared, and it's been cold all day, so while I went about doing things around the house, we had a fire going in the fireplace. I took a picture of the living room looking cozy and warm. Because this is what it was looking like outside:
I think I'm going to go downstairs and fix us each a cup of hot chocolate to relax with. L has been having trouble sleeping lately. I think he's in overdrive with this bathroom remodel, and he's been waking up really early every morning and hasn't been able to get back to sleep. He lays awake and listens to me snore, apparently. Now I won't be able to sleep, worrying that I'm snoring, or drooling or worse. Maybe I need a cookie with that hot chocolate.
