I really like that the banjo counter is gone. It did add more counter space, but it made it nearly impossible to get into the back of the toilet.
My daughter is trying to convince me to get an over the toilet storage unit. I probably will for the main bathroom as she has soooo much stuff. I can manage in my en-suite as I didn't use the extra counter space. I have a three tier plastic container that I keep under the sink - it provides all the storage I need.
The sinks are installed but the plumber is having some issues with the seals - they are plastic and are leaking a bit. I expect he'll be here a little longer to get that taken care of - he says the only option is to silicone "the hell" out of them. Turns out it wasn't the seals it was old water. Not sure how he can tell but I trust he knows what he is doing.
At the same time, the company that has been installing new higher speed internet cable in the neighbourhood are finally finishing the work in the back yard. I'm watching two men go back and forth from the front yard to the back with wheelbarrows full of gravel. I took a look out the sunroom and it looks like they'll be here awhile...the hole is quite deep. I haven't decided if I'll sign up for it or not, while it may be faster, I suspect the cost will be much higher as well.
That other finish line, is retirement. I'll be taking another marble out of the jar next week leaving just five marbles! When I look back I cannot believe how quickly the time has past, even though looking forward it still seems like a long way off. I had my performance review with my manager yesterday and asked for a couple of projects to keep me busy into the fall as I've gotten into my routine and am finding things have slowed down. When I get bored, I get bitchy...that's been the norm for me for most of my life.
Anyway, I'll end this post with a picture of Eli. I took this photo the evening they left for B.C. I guess he travelled fairly well, though D wasn't happy hauling baby and bags on her own. They're having a blast now visiting with J and exploring Courtney/Comox. I've seen photos and videos of Eli on the beach, playing on a swing, visiting Dad at the job site, and meeting his cousin Ethan.
They are off to Port Hardy when J is off work today to visit with his grandparents and other relatives. I sure miss the little guy (though I'm sure getting lots down around here without his assistance), but I'm happy to hear that all is well and he's having lots of fun.
Have a great weekend everyone!
