Bathroom: Not Done

We’re now just three days from departure to Europe, and our bathroom remodel project is supposed to be done.

Of course, it is not.

We just slipped under the 10-day countdown to our big European vacation: two weeks in London, Paris, and Munich.

There’s a lot going on right now – vacation is NEEDED on so many levels.

Winter wonderland...

Winter wonderland…

Sigh. Shutdown is over.

It’s a bitter pill to swallow, but I’m personally ready to get on with the new year. It was great having two weeks off and all, but to be honest it finished off a tad more eventful than I think either Trent or I were anticipating. Continue reading
