They came, they saw, and after a lot of hard labor on their part and a temporary bathroom access for us, the bathroom work is done. One big advantage with living in a complex is that when work needs to be done, they have the materials, a crew and it gets done in a timely fashion. When you own your home or rent from an individual, available cash and other factors can cause delays. I was told on Monday they would be in here to work on Wednesday, and the job got done. Turns out the entire bathroom did not need to be gutted- only the tub enclosure and the drywall behind it. They transformed a 30 year old ratty Formica tub enclosure into this beautiful ceramic tile one. I am tickled pink !
Now that this has been accomplished, life can get back to normal ! One thing that happened while they were working was drinking almost no water during the day. If you drink, you need to run potty often, and with all the coming and going of the crew and the need to leave the door unlocked, I wanted to time our bathroom breaks with times when I knew that someone would definitely be in the apartment. I discovered that out of all things that one could eat and drink, I love water the most !!! Who cares about sweets or so forth ? I could live happily without them. Take away my water however and you kick me in the knees !!
