I've been wondering whatever happened to your barn door. You haven't mentioned it in a while.

Hey girls, don't give me too much credit. I schlepped one or two, then took a half hourish break. Took me all afternoon to get them inside.

I only dropped one box on my foot and it's not broken. Winning!

The plans for the living room came to an abrupt halt when the no longer a buffhunk decided he would indeed use the gym equipment. The living room/library can't really function as a gym too.

We were thinking about what to do with it. I suggested finishing at least a part of the basement for the gym. That idea was nixed. I did get the room all nicely painted and ready to be redecorated, but...

His working out lasted a month, maybe 2 at best. Being out of the Navy, with the physical fitness requirement, for over 2 years now has redesigned a husband who shall remain nameless. A husband who has not changed his caloric intake, nay, he has ramped up his intake of fattening foods. Sitting at a desk all day....

I certainly am guilty of plumping up too, but in my defense - my not working out was related to that whole feeling like I was going to pass out with exertion thing that lead me to the doctor for a number of tests which included an echocardiogram and the flippin sleep study -> CPAP use, followed by a rotator cuff injury. Whew, long winded.

But I have lost 20 odd pounds and remain floating at the 163 lb range on my 5' 10" frame. My BMI is in the normal range.

So the long answer to the question is nothing has been decided on the room now containing dusty gym equipment and building materials.

I'm sorry that you haven't gotten the room fixed up like you wanted, but hopefully that will still happen. Congrats on the weight loss. That's not at all easy and it's a big accomplishment.

Thank you, but I am not through with that one either!!

Gotta concentrate on the bathroom and then worry about other projects.

But other things keep getting in the way....

The car tire had a slow leak from a nail in the treads.

The garbage disposal has died.

The grill is still down and the parts I ordered don't fit.

I found evidence of mouse in my pantry, so I've had to pull everything out, set traps, etc.

and now

I really don't want to start the project until my BFF gets a handle on the big trouble that has befallen her.

The other happenings in your life are certainly not condusive to your reno project. I hope that things calm down soon and you can concentrate on your bathroom again.

Good news! Who would you call to fix a garbage disposal? A plumber? I don't have one, so I don't know much about them. If you had called a plumber, he probably wouldn't have been any help at all since it turned out to be an electrical problem.

I could use a plumber. Our bath/shower faucet has a slow drip.

You probably just need a new cartridge. Depending on what kind you have, it could be a 5 minute fix.

Do you have a single handle that goes around cold to hot or two separate knobs for hot and cold?

It's a single handle. I really hesitate to try anything ourselves. The one time that my husband decided to change out the kitchen faucet, it resulted in a flood in the kitchen. That kind of scared me off of any DIY plumbing projects. We have a plumber who has fairly reasonable rates, but that seems like kind of a piddling reason to get him out here. Although my neighbor just this morning asked me for a plumber referral and is going to call him. If he is already here (across the street) maybe he would fix the leak really cheaply.

I understand your concern, but a cartridge change on one of those is a cheap and easy fix. You'd be surprised how easy. If you gave it a try and felt you couldn't do it, you would have lost nothing. Then call your plumber.

I'll think about. I really hate to waste any water, even though it is a very small drip.
