What did I want for Christmas??  A NEW BATHROOM!  Before:
After:  the room was completely gutted. We left all the plumbing the same...tried to save some money that way.  I designed it myself..colors, tiles, etc.  I am rather pleased with the results.
Before:  (I must tell you that it is embarrassing looking at these photos and realizing how long we lived with the bathroom looking like this....yuck!)
After:  do you think that in 30 years someone will look at this and go: "what were they thinking?!"
Christmas was wonderful.  I got an Iphone!!  Thank goodness my daughter is home from college so that she can show me how to use it.  I also have a new mac book which is very user friendly and much better and quicker than my old laptop.  I hope you all are wonderful and are enjoying these slower paced post-Christmas days!

We now interrupt your regularly scheduled blog for some home repair.  Ok, so two important things have happened recently:  our upstairs bathroom is FINALLY being re-done and my purse was stolen from my kitchen countertop early yesterday morning...yep...thief cut right through the screen...took it.  Of course it had everything in wallet, my cell phone, my ipod, my palm pilot....everything! I called the police and they came but they really didn't help at all....other than taking the report and giving me the phone number to call the local pawn shops.  So today is busy with the business of re-loading everything...trip to MVA, trip to the Social security admin., bank, etc.  UGH....

I will post some pictures of the before and after bathroom...soon, I promise.
