A Budget

July 29, 2008

I’ll be gone for a couple days art directing a commercial shoot in Texas for an entertainment superstore.

So I thought I’d give you all an update and head on out.

Our plumbing problems have been temporarily fixed. Our wonderful plumber came out and unclogged the beast for us. He said it should hold us over for months, maybe longer, as long as we don’t flush paper down it. I was thinking “psh, I’m not going to flush my magazines or bills down the toilet – no worries.” Then I realized he was talking about TOILET PAPER. Uhm. Hm. HOW DOES THAT WORK? I won’t go into details but we got the extra thick cushy Charmin and have put ourselves on a toilet paper budget. I think it’s important that you all really know what goes into a remodel that “sounds like so much fun!” – TOILET PAPER BUDGETS.


It also turns out that both Jeremy and I were notorious as kids for clogging up the toilets and our parents have no problem laughing about it.

Needless to say, we’ll be putting in a new sewer line sooner rather than later and I will be stuffing copious amounts of toilet paper down it.

In other news…

I forgot that I never posted a photo of our new entertainment credenza.
This isn’t the most flattering photo in the world but you get the idea. It’s working out pretty well so far.

We still have a huge to-do list but things are calming down. Now it’s just a waiting game for our kitchen countertops and backsplash tile. We’re also anxious for our sofa to come in. Hopefully it will be in the next couple weeks. Then I will finally reveal a full living room photo.
