Heads up everybody, I'm going dark.
No, not my hair color - it's too late for that. I'm talking about not being online for the next week or two. And for a very good reason...
WE'RE DOWN TO ONE BATHROOM!!!
And EVERY one of you with 3 or more teenagers knows just how serious this is. I simply MUST have our main bathroom up and functional as soon as possible and I ain't stopping till I'm done. It's that simple.
So what happened to our bathroom you ask?
Well, it all started out with a little discoloration in the linoleum by the front corner of our bathtub. This led to my wife's desire to "see what's underneath that weird spot" even though I've repeatedly tried to warn her to never look underneath weird spots.
Sure enough I foolishly peeled away the flooring, only to discover this...
This of course only left one course of action - remove the subfloor and see how far it had creeped. Which is exactly what I did here after I first removed the vanity and blue sink.

Naturally, simply replacing the subfloor and rolling out new linoleum wasn't going to cut it. No, we're going to go ALL the way and put in new ceramic floor tile, a fancy new white sink in a cherry wood cupboard and most importantly, a WHITE toilet!
See, we can hide the blue bathtub behind a curtain, but blue sinks and toilets are kind of... well, unhidable - and after 15 years of looking at them it's time to move on.
So that's why you won't see me for a few days, because I'll be working on this with every spare second to my name. Because for every morning I get all of us out of the house using only one bathroom without murdering one of my kids, I consider myself lucky.
But unless I finish this soon, you're liable to see my mug shot in the paper.
