Christmas Tub Melodies

December 7, 2007
Throughout the years I have heard the stories about the nightmares of remodeling. Nightmares like building inspectors being too fussy, the wrong supplies being ordered, contractors not showing up…
Gary didn’t show up today and much to our surprise didn’t call.
The whole situation is kinda funny. We have a tub in the living room decorated for Christmas. Most of the supplies for the infamous bathroom are now stacked and stored in the bathroom itself (now you can walk through the house but not the bathroom). As I was cleaning this morning I was inspired by the beautifully decorated tub and the seasonal music that I have been listening to. So I wrote the official ‘Christmas Tub’ song. This is to be sung to tune of ‘O Tannenbaum.’

¯ ‘O Christmas Tub,
O Christmas Tub,
O how I long to soak in thee’

‘O Christmas Tub,
O Christmas Tub,
You’re decorated beautifully’

‘I did not think it’d take this long,
And so I sing this silly song’

‘O Christmas Tub,
O Christmas Tub,
O how I long to soak in thee.’ ¯

My insanity is complete.
Which is more than I can say for my bathroom.

'Tis the Season

December 5, 2007
Gary was supposed to come out yesterday to finish up the roof so that we could get the building inspector for the next part of the inspection (notice the heavy sigh that came with that last statement). Alas, Gary’s real job did not allow for this so he will be out this Friday to work on the bathroom.
And so the decorating of the Christmas tub begins!

We have decorated the tub for Christmas! It is filled with Poinsettias and burgundy velvet. We were going to add lights but were afraid it may scratch the finish. The Christmas Tub is center stage in the living room bedecked for the Christmas holidays. Gary will be out tomorrow to finish the roof work. WooHoo!
