Tuesday Afternoon

Tomorrow was supposed to be my day off but now I'm going in at 4 am or maybe 3:30 am to go work half my shift. My dept.  manager was at jury duty and got picked and won't be at work tomorrow. She was supposed to take over my job on my days off. I'm only going to work about 4 1/2 hours but I need to try to get almost everything done that I'd do in a normal day. Another woman is going to come in at 8 am but she is not really familiar with what I do and has only had a little practice. It takes a good 2 or 3 months to learn the routine. I feel like I can't let my dept. manager down because she one of those people who would do anything for anyone. She was already stressed about going to jury duty and hoping she did not get picked. She has to drive an hour there and an hour back. We all pull together in our dept. when something needs to get done. We are a great team.

I came home today to find out Russell is adding an extra bathroom to the house. We only have the one bathroom and it's small. He is adding a 1/4 bath with just a toilet and a sink. We have this extra bedroom and there is a part of it that juts out into the hallway near the other bathroom and he will be talking that part plus a little more out of the bedroom. It will be small but at least when I want to take a nice relaxing bath Russell won't come in and stink the place out. ;) haha  Here are a few pictures of what he has started. He's working on getting it framed up right now.  It was kinda hard to take pictures because I could not stand that far back.

 Before he ripped up the carpeting we decided to put a wood floor in this bathroom. Luckily we don't have to cause it's already wood under the carpet. It needs to be re-finished but it's a lot easier than putting a new floor in. I sure will be happy to get a second bathroom. I'll try to take some more pictures when it's done.


  1. It's so great to be working with good people as a team. I've had that a few times in my life and it was fantastic to wake up and know you were going to have a good day at work, regardless. She'd do the same for you, I bet. Nice! I hope she didn't get chosen, tho--hehe!

    Wow! Having another sink and toilet will be wonderful!! That Russell--he is the man!! :):)

  2. Hope you managed to get everything done in the time you wanted to at work.

    We could do with a second bathroom here. I intend arranging it after the other stuff is done on the house.

  3. At last a home for that pink toilet... :)
