The workers are between a third and a half done. The upstairs bathroom is currently unusable, and the downstairs bathroom is only partially usable (the toilet works, thank heavens). They haven't been bad - though one of them managed to trip the circuit breakers by not paying careful attention to the loads they had already put on the electrical system. But it is a terrible pain in the posterior, and trying to get work done at the same time is almost impossible.

Meanwhile, I have been reduced to sponge baths for some five days, and I am getting ROYALLY sick of it. With luck, the shower should be available again Real Soon Now...

Yeah, when I had my bathrooms done years back, it was an ABSOLUTE IRONCLAD RULE: you do ONE at a time so we have one bathroom COMPLETELY working at all times.

The joys...

of 20/20 hindsight. I had thought that the downstairs bathroom would be available - but they had to rip out the ceiling, and then do some other work which made even the toilet difficult to get to.

(I have a sweater that my daughter helped me get paint off -- I brushed against the fresh paint, you see...)

I will be much happier (and sadly wiser) when this madness is done...

The last time one of our neighbors had to have both bathrooms shut down for plumbing repair, we let them use ours for a couple of days. Same for their laundry.

Yes...

The real problem is the lack of the shower; I'll admit I toyed with the idea of asking our friends the Golds if I could use their shower, but I couldn't quite get up the nerve (ok, I know it's silly, but ...)
