all will be well

Thanks for the comforting comments and prayers for Tim's safety as he traveled
 all through the night last night. I didn't get much sleep due to anxiety
 and the cats bothering me, but thank God, Tim arrived safely in Gatlinburg at 9 a.m. today.

And now, today, I'm back under contractor craziness.

Last May, my house was in disarray because of the entire first floor being painted.
I live in a ranch-style house, so that basically meant every room of the house.
Now we're having the two bathrooms semi-remodeled. We're just not having the bathtub
 in the main bath replaced, nor the shower stall in the master bathroom replaced,
 due to limited $$.

I thought this would be easy because it's just the two bathrooms. Ha! You forget how much
 stuff is in the bathrooms (especially underneath the sinks) that has to be totally cleaned out and put...somewhere! Which means piled in the bedrooms. And then I forgot that the contractors were going to patch the hole in my closet wall, so I just finished taking all our clothes and shoes out of the closet and putting everything on Tim's bed and floor. All the pictures in the hallway had to be taken down in case the contractors bump the walls.
 The new toilets, sinks, vanities, flooring, and light fixtures are all crammed in the spare bedroom.

The noise was so bad today, of course, and I had the kitties locked in the basement. They were totally freaked out. I ran errands most of the day but when I got home and the contractors left, I let the cats out and they slept five hours straight in their usual places upstairs! They obviously didn't rest or sleep in the basement. Poor fur babies.

  Have been doing laundry tonight, taking apart my closet, moving furniture, and took my shower since I can't do so in the morning (won't have time, then won't have a bathroom available). Didn't have time to go to my Monday night yoga class. Brian had to run to both Menards and Home Depot to get last minute stuff that the contractors need. I think we'll both sleep well tonight!

I know that when the bathrooms are done by the end of the week, it'll all be worth it.
And Tim will be home, too.

All will be well.

  1. Poor kitties. And poor you, too, having to put up with the noise and mess. But at least you know that at the end of the week you will have beautiful bathrooms.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a kind comment - I read and appreciate each one!
