I haven’t said much about the great “flood” in awhile and a few have inquired if we are done with the fix up yet….
I still have a few little things to do or put back and we have to replace a breaker box that was damaged by all the fans and dehumidifiers but other than that it is DONE!!!
Here is what started it all!
This room was tricky because it is very uneven and the Insurance Co. didn’t want us to replace the tile.
But around the floor we had varying degrees of damage to the bottom few rows of tile.
Tim’s Uncle John Klopfenstein (Klopfenstein Furniture Leo and 14/69 stores, Hey I thought I would give him a plug! He’s GOOD!!) came up with this cost efficient alternative… Ceramic tile that could be cut to fit our uneven room with a top piece that would join the 2 tiles together nicely.The old tile was plastic and lays flatter against the wall then the tile now days. We are guessing this tile has been there for 40+ years.
This bathroom used to be green, blue and pink.
I like the new look!!
Before Upstairs Hall…
It is hard to show you the difference but I think it’s big!
Plus I have been on a cleaning out rampage!!
Which just in itself is a great feeling!
So I can look back at this experience and feel very blessed in spite of the utter impatience and frustration I felt while living in the mess!
On the weight loss front, week one was basically a great one I lost 3.5 pounds.
I spent a couple of days with a slight flu bug that made food very unappetizing.
But was a huge help to my diet and helped shrink my stomach!! Hey you got to look for the positives!
Sadly due to my injury (see last post) I am very limited on exercise.
I had Tiff take a pic of my leg. I really hesitate posting it as it is really ugly (leg and bruise) but I thought maybe someone will have some insight and wisdom to share if they saw it.
My actual pain and injury are my upper thigh and hip/behind area but this bruise showed up a few days ago and is is low. What’s up with that?
I never actually fell or hit it on anything.
The diagnosis now is a pulled hamstring.
I head back to the chiropractor this week for a check and I will see what he says.
I think it is feeling better so I hope I am on the mend!!
Hint for the day if your trying to drop some extra pounds…
One of the biggest things I realized this last week is that I have to write down everything that goes in my mouth!! It just is huge for me otherwise no matter how good my intentions are I just am not accountable for everything I am eating!! I don’t like doing this but it is necessary!!
Have a great one!!
