Here Robert is working on the floor tiling in the bathroom off the bedroom. In this he was instructing Nila Eddington on the process. Nila is an amazing woman. She redid all the floors in her home with laminate herself!
Next came what we call my bathroom, off the hall upstairs. We had removed the shower curtain before taking the picture. The light fixture we called dingle balls but I really do like them. However, if we are rehabbing and making things look more like 2016, Robert felt they could be replaced. He is right, of course...but they were my mom's and there's just something about them that connects her to me and I will miss them. HOWEVER, the good news is that Jordan said he'd like to have them if we do take them down...so perhaps I will still get to see them -- only now in his home.
Robert started to remove the old toilet. The first thing he found behind the tank was this piece of wallpaper that my mom had used on the wall. Black background with flowers in almost foil. It was lovely and very much her but very much NOT me. He also discovered that the wax ring was so old that it had collapsed in onto the exit hole which is why not all things would flush with one flush. Jordan had mentioned how he hated this toilet. Now we understand the problem. But both the wall paper and the toilet is gone.
Be sure to take note of the dingle balls (light fixture) because I'd like you to see the change.
I want a small table with drawer thingy for the corner which is now available. We looked when the Barretts were here but found none. Dawn found one yesterday (4/8/2016) up in Michigan so when I get it down here I will add a picture of my finished bathroom. It's lovely.
After all was set up and we were putting away the tools and what nots, Robert is coming up the stairs and I notice he's weeping. I ask him what's up. He doesn't answer. I ask, did you hurt yourself? Did you break something? Are you tired? Do you like my bathroom better than yours?
He wonders why I thought he was crying. Really? Do I not know my man? Finally he says, I was just thinking of the Savior.
That's the man I've married.
