My Marble Made It

The full load of tile has arrived. 90 sq ft of Carrara/Bardiglio basketweave marble. I am getting impatient. Having no money stinks!

Oh well, even if we did have money right now, our contractor is in Haiti helping to build an orphanage. Seriously. The Badgers are probably the best examples of good-deed-doers I know. They make me want to be a better person. They also make me realize I have a long way to go on the charity and love scale. Kind of depressing really.

So anyway, until Badger returns and the IRS gets its butt in gear, we're at a stalemate.

I Shoulda Been A Plumber

The other day we had the plumbers come in to move the tub supply lines from the wall to to the floor, rough in the drain for the tub, and move the toilet a few inches to the right. Three hours and $750 later we now have the lines in the right place and the holes in the floor and walls (and kitchen ceiling) to prove it. I am in the wrong profession.

The kids are already attempting to make claim on this baby. Don't even think about it you little rugrats!

Our tile will be delivered on Wednesday, but after that we probably won't be blogging for at least a couple of weeks. We're wating on our tax refund so we can actually pay for the services we will be requiring. I love getting a tax refund! The only problem is waiting on the IRS to give it to us. IRS!!! (Shaking my proverbial fist.)
