Monday Stuff On the Way to Other Stuff: Bathrooms

I'm not sure how...God's grace, I think. But we made it through a night and a day of Worship Team, flu notwithstanding. I'm pretty sure we were both running a fever before practice this morning, but fortunately they (the fevers, that is) broke sometime during the first service's sermon. Whew.
     The Brick went out with Son #1 to pick up tile, the toilet and the vanity this afternoon. We got an e-mail from Home Depot that the vanity had arrived. When Son went down to pick it up, though, they informed him that they hadn't received any order for us! Maddening. Turns out there was a small scratch down the front that will need refinishing...but it also means that Home Depot cut the price $300. No problem with that -- but it took several visits, a few hours of wrangling and a visit to the manager this morning to get that. 
     We should have our guest bathroom finished by Wednesday or so. Then it's on to the master bath.
     Meanwhile, I plug away at these reports. Then on to some quilt restoration -- and packing up donations again. 

    Since the Brick took on shopping duties (what a sweet man), I was able to fit a short nap and reading the Sunday paper into my worktime yesterday.  Feeling a little better. \
     The Brick dragged himself off to drive school bus today. (I wish he hadn't.) Hopefully, he'll feel better soon, too.
