Remember last week when I said I was "going dark" because I was going to be busy remodeling my bathroom? Well, I'll have you know I have now been a prisoner to my bathroom since Friday morning.
Yowsa. During this quality time I've had to remove all the fixtures, tear up the old subfloor, abate the black mold, reinstall a new cementboard subfloor and lay the new ceramic tiles.
Now then don't worry, I'm not going to bore you with step by step pictures of every hour I've spent on this project, but I will give you two quick snapshots of what I've accomplished so far.
Here's what the bathroom floor looked like when we first peeled away the rotten linoleum by the bathtub a few weeks ago...
That was the flooring the previous owners put in at the last minute just so they could sell the place. We absolutely HATE this crappy linoleum and have hated it since the day we bought the place. I had no idea the Dollar Store even sold linoleum.
Now, here's what it looks like at this very moment...
I just finished laying the tiles and will clean and grout them in the morning.
So that's why you haven't seen me stopping by your blogs and leaving my impossibly clever witticisms. Gee, I sure hope you're all doing ok without me.
Oh yeah, and one more thing. I did manage to send my friends over at Central Snark this post the other day so make sure to stop on by and read about my favorite holiday treats. I'm quite confident you will want to get your mouth around them for sure.
