Slow going...

My remodeling projects are taking longer than I expected...yeah, what else is new?

Auburn Guy, 'Bama Girl, and Chance are not helping matters either! Are we going somewhere today? Is there anything to eat? Are you through in there yet? No, no, and NO! Chance has been sick for 2 days - the shaking thing again. All he has wanted is for me to hold him, and I did. But tomorrow, I'm getting things done...I mean it!

Here's a few pictures of what I have gotten done:

This looks better in person. I had to re-plaster the arch above the window.

I'm 5'2" - This was not easy - even on a ladder!

I had to tear all this out before the plumber came and before I can tile.

Little things make me happy :)

I bought the faucet and was told it would be easy to replace. HA...I had to call a plumber because it needed to be welded. He came, he left...I had no hot water in the bath. He came back, I had to go get another faucet. Finally it was installed and I have hot water, now I can tile next week - if everything goes my way!

I wasn't sure if I liked the blue paint, but it matches the granite and the sorta looks like a condo at the Redneck Riviera (Gulf Shores!)...but it's growing on me. And it's only paint, it's only paint, it's only paint!

Well, I'm sure you've had enough of that! Sometime next week, I'm going to try and post a tutorial for a really cute top I made. We got the idea when 'Bama Girl bought a shirt at the mall (regular price $32.00, on sale for $19.00). It's a really simple and cute summertime top. It's made from a wife-beater (muscle shirt). Quick and easy!

I'm also a little peeved because there was an ad in the local paper that my gynecologist is moving to Huntsville. Well...lucky Huntsville...but what do I do? I guess drive to Huntsville! Like I need an excuse! But, do you know how hard it is to get a doctor you really like? It took me forever to find her. Oh well, it's only once a year, I'll manage. Yeah, I'm sure you wanted to hear all about that, too!

Guess it's bedtime, hope you all have a good week!




  1. I think your project is looking great! I can't wait to see the end result. Joyce in Iowa

  2. Ooooh I love the blue, Debbie.
    It really looks pretty with the trim.
    I love the faucet, too, even if it was a pain in the you-know-what!

  3. Sweetie, you are doing a FABULOUS job, keep the pictures coming!

  4. I like the blue it makes the trim Pop. Looks like your doing a great job to me. I'm looking forward to seeing the completed results

  5. I know how you feel about the doctor. I would drive to Huntsville if my gyn in Birmingham moved there, and I have a lot further to drive than you do. Also I hear there's a fantastic quilt shop in Huntsville that I haven't visited. I love the blue paint. And I'm amazed that you would tackle jobs like plumbing and tiling. Wow!
