Then, when we tried to install the sinktop, we realized that the backsplash came up higher than the old one, so the outlet had to be moved up. More plaster repairs . . .
Two steps forward, one step back . . . It's now been a year and two months, since that fateful Labor Day Weekend 2009 when we took the old bathroom apart . . . My father used to say that to have truly lived you had to accomplish three things: Plant a tree, have a child and write a book. I'd like to add one more item to the list: Live through a major remodeling project.
It's getting closer, though. The light at the end of that long tunnel is getting brighter . . . After the plastering is done, there's still the plumbing for the sink, the wood trim installation, and a few other things, like putting up the towel bars and toilet paper dispenser . . . But one thing at a time . . . (deep breath . . .)
