lovely little shitter

i swear i was about to pick up the putty knife & get to work on the bedroom doors so the room that we spend 90% of our time in could be pretty & mostly finished but then.... our toilet broke. & my gears shifted back to the bathroom. you know what isn't fun? having to manually fill your toilet tank with water because it stopped filling itself & you're not a plumber. it's also not fun to sit on a toilet that feels like it's going to fall through the floor. have i mentioned our toilet is slightly unstable?

once i got over being mad that our toilet broke & i would now have to pay for an unexpected expense, i was probably a little too excited at the thought that "hey, now is the time to make where we shit just a little more pretty & efficient". don't even act like we don't all shit. i appreciate the hell out of a pretty toilet & although it's not the top of the line fanciness that you see all over the nice blogs, it sure as hell beats the beast that was there before.

to everyone who's ass has touched our toilet seat, you're welcome. you can now do your thing without having to balance the toilet at the same time. okay, so our floor is still un-level but it's still significantly better than it was.

things left on the to-do:

  • new shower curtain
  • install new toilet paper holder (ordered!)
  • install new hand towel hook (ordered!)
  • replace trash can
  • spray paint ikea cart black
  • finish painting
  • install new toilet
  • have a plumber fix our leaky faucet & toilet line
  • paint door black

bedroom doors, you'll just have to wait. the rest of the bathroom needs to rise up to meet the new toilet's standards. after all, what's the point of shitting pretty if the only thing pretty is what you're shitting on?
