I'm sure many of our faithful readers are wondering why we haven't posted the "after pictures" of our bathroom yet. Yes, we did completely tear out our bathroom a few months ago and yes, we do have everything we need to finish it, but... it is still not done! Granted, the walls are back up, and have been mudded, sanded and primed once. The plumbing and electrical stuff is done as well, so there really is an end in sight
Yet we have been stalled in what seems like an endless state of sharing our one remaining bathroom. Here are some of the reasons we still have sticky faucets, toothpaste globs on the counter and are tripping over step stools in our bathroom (as opposed to the new one):
1. Our new schedule: Sunday-Church, Monday-Laura has class, Tuesday-Jared has Scouts & Laura has Activity Days, Wednesday-Laura's classes again... this leaves only a few days a week to work on it. And of course there are other various activities that come up on those days too.
2. Our Saturdays have been taken up with a temple trip, marriage seminar/Disney on Ice, paintballing (Jared's new hobby / obsession), another trip to Orlando and a hurricane scare which had us scrambling to install the hurricane shutters that have been in our garage for a couple of years. Incidently it takes one whole Saturday to install (cut/fit/drill into the concrete block walls) just one window--and we have 10! (Why are we not paying someone else to do it again?)
3. The last reason is because Jared and I have been spending long hours after the kids go to bed working on our respective projects. It's actually been pretty fun to sit at the same table on our laptops, even though we are kind of wasted the next day. I am putting together a portfolio for a scholarship that I just found out about and Jared has been working on our first family movie that premiered tonight at the Annual Plantation Ward Film Festival.
Here is the movie. It was not intended to be a sad commentary on my life, but rather a slightly humorous take on what my life is really like. I hope you like it! Jared did a great job on it.
