Must. Have. For. New. Master. Bathroom...

Many of you know that our family has embarked on a major remodel to our house. Five people in a two-bedroom bungalow just became far too stressful. I mean, how long can little boys sleep in toddler beds, anyway? At what point/age does that simply become child abuse? But there was no other way to get all three kids' beds in one room, and so here we are . . . The worst day came during the demolition phase, when we drove by our house one day and found that the back third of our house was . . . missing. Destroyed (not originally in the plans). Then there was the day when the tarp covering our whole house (practically our entire lot) began to act like a ship's sail, catching the wind and causing the enormous river rocks anchoring the tarp to fly 6 feet in the air, nearing beaning passers-by. A lawsuit narrowly avoided.

But now, things are looking up. The framing is done. The skeleton is there, and I can tell, as much anguish as we've gone (and still are going) through, that it's going to be beautiful. Makes living out of boxes and living in complete chaos for months at a time all worth it (she said through gritted teeth). Now, I just need to figure out how to get this little item (below) squeezed into the budget. Craig and I simply must have it in our new master bath, don't you agree?

It's too bad the kids are already potty trained- that could have come in handy! Best to you all!

Glad the remodel is coming along! You have a lot on your plate (or should I say roof?) right now! Good that you can keep a sense of humor about it all! Hang in there.
