Moving on up...

Well! My life has improved. We now have a laundry tub/utility sink! Woot! It is not technically plumbed in, but it does have a little spiggot to the slop bucket. I don't have to bend way over to dump out liquids, or worry about splash anymore! Doing dishes was about seventeen times easier and faster this evening. Very pleased. We should have done this monthes and monthes ago when we realized we we slow and lazy and weren't getting the final plumbing done very quickly.

Though... it wasn't quite how we'd planned the day. I wanted to see the wet wall in today; now I have to hope for tomorrow, because I'm bound and determined to have a toilet by Tuesday. Tuesday, you hear me?! *shakes fist in random direction* We're awfully close. It's getting exciting.

Back is aching like crazy, but the new mobility is still there, and it feels more like I've been pulverized than like I'm cinched up too tight inside. Which is as I was told to expect. I'm icing now.

Zip on EMG time. Zip on art time. But I did get my drafting table cleared off, buy a tall, comfy chair for it, and figure out some minimal lighting for it. One of these days, darn it, I'm going to have art space with floods of light. Absolutely floods of it. It's a dream of mine.

Moose steaks for dinner tonight; Jake's out flipping them now. :)
