Bathroom remodel update!

I wish I would have taken BETTER before pictures to add effect to the after pictures, but like I had mentioned in a previous post of mine, we are remodeling our bathroom.

We purchased this house in the middle-of-nowhere, Arkansas and a steal at 17,000. It’s an extremely spacious old fashioned home where working door knobs now cost almost a hundred dollars and had windows you cranked. We had originally planned to only spend close to 10 on renovations and selling it for profit, but the house sucked us clean into debt and now that we are having a newborn coming to stay forever, there was no way we could skimp on this room–especially considering there was a serious mold issue!

At the moment, we are lucky to have a working toilet. I’m VERY okay with this idea so I’m not too concerned with the fact that there is till much more work to be done before I bring Ivy into this world.

So far we have re-done the floor: laid out new tile floor, and covered the walls with ceramic white tile that really brightened the space up!!

I’m very happy to have it looking so good!!

I am a Virgo, I very much believe in astrology. I’ve always exhibited Virgo traits, even the least desirable, at an early age. It may sound silly and illogical, but to me it makes sense after I studied it and myself more. Which goes back to my need for cleanliness, especially when it comes to preventing illness. I have not been too tired to care about preventing myself from getting sick. ‘Tis the season!!

Even though I’ve been less than excited to attend school or work lately, I do (except for when I find myself weak from regurgitating my ingested energy). I noticed an irritating thing as I was standing in front of the mirror at school.

It’s ridiculous, but I noticed a lot of the women (can’t speak for the men) do NOT wash their hands after they have gone to the restroom. I began to time a 10 minute stake out, and I actually counted how many washed their hands after using the restroom. Results? Out of 16 girls that entered on 7 left with clean hands. I find this repulsive and really it’s a personal pet peeve. It’s unhealthy and especially during flu season, I find it irresponsible.  I swear it was one of the first things I noticed that was different in Arkansas compared to New Mexico.

That’s so Virgo!
