Speaking of Finishing...

Jason has decided that this is the weekend to finally finish the tiling in our bathroom. It has been in a near-completed state since, um, well, since July. The end of July. Or the beginning of August. Since then, it has been in renovation stasis--that place that renos go to sleep until the insanity of life goes away for a weekend.

Due to the over-abundance of bathrooms in our house, finishing it hasn't exactly been high priority, although it may have been more convenient to use, since it is our main bathroom. However, I haven't been complaining that all I've had to clean is ONE bathtub (in our master bath) instead of two, and THREE toilets instead of five. (The basement bathroom is also in stasis--but a much sleepier one. It's the one with tree root issues and black mold, remember? Scarier and pricier to fix, therefore lower on the priority list.)

Anyway, Jason did a row of tile on Saturday night, forgetting about the other one that needed to be done, which I completed on Sunday afternoon. This evening, Jason has been doing the grouting...


...which he just finished. (Mostly. I think he may have to wash a little more off the tiles in a few minutes.)

Do you like my fish? (The grout is still wet.)


The fish was inspired by creative necessity--one of the black tiles for the floor was broken, leaving us not enough to cover the entire floor--so I decided to make a broken tile mosaic!

We should be using the bathroom again before next weekend, if all goes well!

Cute Kid Moment:

The kids are getting ready for bed, and I just overheard Jude singing "Jacob and Sons" from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.

Yeah. Yeah. Yeah...
