If you've been reading my newsletters, you'll know that I had a leak in the wall between my two bathrooms. That led to mold growing on the wall and the discovery of a pretty bad problem.
Well, of course, it turned worse because that's just what happens. It's cans and worms and squirrels with rabies. We felt that we had to take the tub out of the guest bathroom because we couldn't do all this nice new stuff and leave the 1969 chipped, ugly tub.
A simple problem. Just replace the tub. Oh, not so my friends! The drain broke and the next thing I know we're jackhammering concrete and digging down to find pipes. There was a pile of dirt in my bathroom for a couple of days until the plumber came back and fixed everything.
I will say that yesterday we started putting the room back together and I'm excited. The bathrooms were outdated, anything with paint had coats and coats of the stuff which collected dust. (I live in Texas. I bet I could sweep a dustpan full out of my eyes.)
Anyway. Fun times. In the middle of all that, I'm working on the next firefighter book. Needless to say, if there is a distraction it's happening in my livingroom that I use as an office. Yep. It's great. (That's sarcasm.)
