Today I went to the vets office. I really must pause here to say that my Vet rocks! My Vet is not only thorough, but he is kind and funny. 2 wonderful qualities to have.
So, I’m at the office getting some antibiotics for Diesel my 4 month old black kitten…who isn’t so black anymore. He is turning
white grey sliver colors, and it is weird.
Dr. just happened to be standing at the counter so I’m telling him about Diesel, and that I had consulted my good friend Google about it. He said that his kitten was turning grey too. Sadly it seems that Dr. is living in the dark ages as he really didn’t know what a blog was….or Google…or how info gets on the Internet.
So…this blog is specifically for my vet.
This is a blog.
This is my black kitten Diesel about 5 weeks ago.
And this is my blackish kitten Diesel today.
Someone…anyone…please tell me what is going on with my cat!!!
Hey there Internets!
It has been awhile. The contractors had other obligations for the last couple weeks, so not much has been done. The boy has done some mudding in his Grandpa’s absence, but that’s about it….and who wants to see a pic of mud drying?
Lookie…lookie…luan was laid down.
Plumbing for the sink was moved over because I chose a bigger shower.
And speaking of plumbing…
a plumb wall was erected.
But before that could happen….Internets I was so excited to see that
they laid my floor.
Progress….I heart progress.
Whenever I watch a movie or read a book about long ago, (like Lord of the Rings) in the back of my mind I’m always wondering things like where did they use the loo, or how did they shower. And I KNOW that I can not be the only one.
For those of you who read my ramblings, I just KNOW ya’ll are wondering how Superman and I are managing to get clean.
I had plans of purchasing a shower thingie that are made for claw foot tubs.
Then I saw the price of those things and after the minor heart attack I got resourceful.
Enter quarter inch PVC pipe and 550 cord.
I’ve always wanted one of those walk in showers that will hold 3 people at a time and now I have one. It is 5’x 5′ so I don’t even bump into anything.
Mine doesn’t have the gorgeous marble floors, or the subway tiled walls, but still….it is huge, and it is fun.
Kinda like showering at camp minus the gross fungus.
The father is reminding me to make a blog post.
I have been remiss for a reason.
Diesel, the kitten, has been doing one of 2 things for the last couple days.
1. Begging to be fed or
2. Curling up on my chest to sleep.
Both of those things are not conducive to editing pictures and typing up a blog post.
So..without further ado…
The dynamic duo was over Saturday to make more mess in my bathroom.
A necessary mess, but a mess nonetheless.
They tore out the tub…which was the beginning and sole purpose of this remodel.
We all were functioning under the assumption that there was all kinds of nasty mold behind the shower.
Look ma! no mold. Just tar paper and a tub being shimmed up with cardboard. Who shims a tub with cardboard?
After the tub was removed, they decided to
take a break rest on their laurels pose for a union break picture.
Someone thinks they are funny.
After their “break”, they had to break up all the concrete that the stupid “lets shim the tub with cardboard” person put under the tub. ‘Cause why not???
This is where the linen closet used to be and where the new tub will reside.
After almost all the walls were disseminated, we found that there is no insulation in the outside walls. Not even horse hair or newspaper…nothing. My house is more screwed up than previous thought.
The last hold out is my throne. I’m hoping that they won’t take that out until it must be removed, then promptly deposited back where it goes.
