The Bathroom Renovation

First of all, from the e-mails I have gotten it seems that no one believes that the leaves are changing here in NH. They are and I will take some pictures this week; especially of a certain tree right out side the building I work in at a local college. It is almost all changed in color.

Second, I am back at work so that explains the lack of posts. It is incredibly busy the first couple of months at a college and there is nothing getting done at home except eating and sleeping and bathroom renovation which I shall explain in a minute. One last thing about college; if you are the parent of an incoming freshman, especially if you are a mother, do not call the college and try to arrange your child's life, or buy their books for them, or get them a different roomate, or any other thing that may seem normal for a mother of a 4 year old to do. They are adults. They can handle it. As you can tell I've taken a few calls this week from "Helicopter Mothers".

Amidst all the busyness, we (and when I say we I mean hubby) are renovating my bathroom finally. Not a total gut but a good update. It's a small bathroom but I don't care, it's mine! The secret to a long and happy marriage is separate bathrooms you know. So I'll post pictures on the progress.
Here's a few of the design choices but those could change too.
The only bad thing about this is during the renovation I'll have to share my husband's bathroom. I don't know if a 33 year marriage can survive that.

  1. Chris,

    Good luck with the bathroom sharing with your husband.

    I used to work at my local university, and had my summers off. That was wonderful. I miss those days.

    Happy Saturday!

  3. Oh, I believe the trees are changin'. Even here in sunny SoCal, I've got a couple of golden leaves on a tree out back *s*
    Just keep reminding yourself how wonderful your renovated bath will be . . . you'll both survive.

  4. Chris,

    Thank you so much for the kind comments that you left on my blog.

    You are right, I would call it 'eclectic', too. A little bit of all styles.

    Happy Sunday!

  5. I am in southern NH and I do believe you when you say the leaves are changing. I have a photo on my blog earlier this month of a single red leaf on a tree outside my back patio.

    DH and I share a bathroom and love it. I can't imagine having my own bathroom. Of course, my DH travels about 100,000 miles a year so there are quite a few nights and days when the bathroom are all mine. Maybe that's the secret to sharing a bathroom.

    Having pen pals can be so much fun. Sounds like you had a great experience in the past with pen pals.

I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
