I didn't see it coming, but three of the best things happened yesterday. And no, tarping our entire bedroom so another hole could be chiseled through the wall wasn't one of them.
The first thing was that my amazing A friend got engaged. You know when you watch someone go through ups and downs in dating and they finally find the one that is clearly the right match and you're rooting for them so hard but don't want to make a big deal about it and put pressure on the situation? Totally one of those. But I knew I'd get the "ring" call one of these days and I am SO happy for her.
The second incident of pure awesomeness was that I got to put peanut butter in Mr. W's hair. No, not during some kinky massage with kitchen condiments (we use dijon for that). He got sap in his hair while working on the add-on—likely a head+ceiling joist situation. And all-knowing remedier of tricky situations, Google, told me to use peanut butter to get it out. Worked like a charm. We even used it on some arm hair. He went to bed smelling like a preschool cafeteria. It was lovely.
The third best thing, which is probably the ultimate best, was that we had to sleep in the guest room. Because of all the mess in our bedroom, we were relegated to the guest room where the cats like to sleep at night. And, to be fair to them, I insisted that we keep the door open so they could stay faithful to their normal routine. (Plus, I haven't gotten to sleep with my kitties since the first night I moved into Mr. W's house in Hollywood 4 1/2 years ago.)
Mr. W was SO not having it when they both immediately jumped into bed with us. But this morning, he did chuckle a little as Zoe nuzzled into my pillow like a prairie dog. The peanut butter must have softened him overnight.
Now that I've covered all the important stuff, here's a little sequential look at our add-on progress. It's crazy how fast it's moving! Before we know it, we'll be taking side-by-side baths in our giant tub and hoping no neighbors see us sitting on the new toilet. Good times.
|I don't actually know what the difference is between this picture and the last one, but I know there's been a whole lot of hammering and noisemaking going on the last couple days.|
|I told Mr. W he should just open a taco stand in there and serve it out the window.|
The next step is to finish the roof. Then the windows are all going in. And Mr. W is outside with the drywall guy right now, so we may have interior walls this week, too. Bathtub, here we come!
