So? What about “Nibbling the Bullet”? What is that about? Well on the blog entry where I said we couldn’t face doing all the work and were settling for ..... you know, the paint and stuff. Anyway on that blog entry I said we could not face ‘biting the bullet’ and doing all the remodeling. And, that we were willing to do the paint stuff instead and I called it ‘licking the bullet’.
Anyone see where this really way too long yarn is going?
Back on point in a minute. But not yet.
Last Wednesday we had a bunch of people over for (low stakes) poker. I wanted to set up the finger food stuff in the kitchen. The Brennie wanted me to move side tables (from other rooms) into the playing areas. Naturally, I thought that was a stupid idea. I mean, isn’t that what the kitchen is for? Come to find out (later) that the real issue was, ‘kitchen-shame’. She didn’t want anyone to see the kitchen. My response ....... “H*ll honey, then we certainly shouldn’t let anyone go into the bathrooms.” Wrong and really stupid smart-*ss response!
Back to the “Nibbling the Bullet”.
Have you guessed yet? Yeah. Señor Biggy Moutho. I set myself up for having to have the bathrooms gutted and made pretty and sweet smelling. First one bathroom. Then if we are happy with the builder, the other bathroom. Still happy? The kitchen. Still happy? Build a small bungalow in a distant valley (or cliff) for the Brennie!
So, we are not going to bite the bullet ........ simply nibble on it for a while.
I really don’t see the problem. Look at the pics of the bathroom we are starting with. Everything works already! We have bathrooms. What we don’t have is a big-*ssed Harley. Now THAT is our real point of need!
Looks to me like we have everything we need.
Sink, toilet, shower/tub.
Even a plunger. Perfect.
The pipes are convenient.
Really easy to fix if necessary!
How can this be anything but good?
Impossible to run out of hot water with this setup!
No need to worry about staining or damaging the floors.
Who needs a vent fan when you got this baby?
AND ..... freshly painted!
Life is sweet,
