Day to Day Adventures

Well I obviously didn't get #1 post for Michael done yesterday. Various reasons--mainly because it was our anniversary yesterday and I just ran out of time. So I will work on getting it out tomorrow or Friday. Don't want to leave Michael out!
The other reason I didn't do it today was we tackled the shower tile today!!!!!

Our plan was to use one kind of tile from tub to ceiling. Boring & easy. Well when Steve went to the store to purchase the rest of the tile we needed he discovered that they didn't have all the tile we needed in the color we planned to use. So we revamped the plan--changed colors of tile & added an idea made it a little more complicated. So we had to lay it out on the living room floor to make sure it looked right and the pattern worked--this took the rest of the morning.

We didn't actually start placing the tile on the wall until after 2 so considering that we did really well. The small tile that is in our border takes more time & thought to put up so that slowed progress down considerably. When we reached the top row, we realized that we were not going to come up flush with the ceiling but be short by about an inch--revise the plan again. We didn't go to the ceiling and we were done for the day. It looks really good but the end walls will need to wait until Sunday or Monday. I am happy we worked today but progress can be slow at times.

I admit I REALLY wanted to have the tile done today. It was hard not to be disappointed after supper when it was decided we needed to stop because we were to tired to continue. Having a second toilet in the house shouldn't be such a priority but some how it is. Friday I will seal the grout on the floor, primer the rest of the walls. Maybe the "colored" paint can go up Wednesday next week--then a toilet and vanity. I guess my problem is that we are so close that I can taste having it done. Patience--only way to learn it is to wait a little more.
