Still Missing that One Essential Item

First of all, you need to know how proud of my husband I am. I don't think either of us knew how huge this bathroom project was going to be, and he's coming along great. He only had one nervous breakdown last week, and for that I can hardly blame him. But then two of our neighbors came in and gave him a boost, and in two days, both the plumbing and electrical work were all done. Thank you, Tim and Bill. Anyway, the bathroom project is moving forward, though we have yet to install that one essential piece of equipment that would make life at our home a little (lot) easier. The potty. Until then, our garage will continue to house our port-a-potty. Wheeee! We do have a floor, and within the hour I think we'll have the fan in. Well done, Troy.

When our neighbor Tim was over helping us with the plumbing, he left his mark:

I think it's actually a pretty fun idea. He told me that in every house he's fixed up, he always does something like this for future generations. It makes me think I should put together a little time capsule for our family and put it in the wall before the cement board goes up in the next couple of days. Any suggestions of what to include?

We're coping pretty well, as noted by my daughter's delighted smile during one of her many "sink baths."

what a fun idea.

Include some or all of your local newspaper, pictures of your family, house, backyard. I have done the same thing.

So cute. you adjust so well to your not so great surroundings. I admire you for that. Keep it up one day and soon it will all be over and so worth it!

You guys rock! Bathroom work is not fun! I really like the time capsule idea. Mike on the other hand, just never wants to break into a wall again. ;-P
