3-bed, 2-bath

Day 88.

Part of my accomplishing the past week has been to clean out the back room and make it functional as an office space and guest bedroom (if anyone knows of a twin bed that anyone wants to get rid of - we're trying to acquire one). I'm excited about this possibility of having a real bed for guests to sleep on, instead of the couch (comfy, but still...a couch).

Afterall, when we only had two bedrooms, I used to think how great it would be to have a third bedroom. And then somehow my guest space turned into a dumping grounds and storage area.

I am grateful for my second bathroom.

Included in this guest suite (don't be fooled by that luxurious word - there is not one ounce of luxury in this visitor's space...) is a bathroom, which has been unusable for some time now. First, the toilet was broken for more than a year. Second, the shower head shoots water up on the wall instead of down on your body...and has warped the paint/wall pretty badly. And because it wasn't functional for a year - the only people to use it were repairmen and drunk guys over for poker night (when I wasn't home to shoo anyone away from the notion of even stepping foot in there!). We have yet to fix the shower...BUT, the toilet is working...and after today the whole bathroom is cleaner than it's ever been.

Come one, come all, my friends and family and feel free to use the back bathroom. I always wanted two bathrooms, and now I finally have them. Two functional bathrooms that I'm not ashamed for people to use (just don't try to take a shower).


  1. Congrats! It feels great to reclaim space. It's like moving into a bigger house, but you don't have to pay for it, and you don't have to move.
