Getting it done, in more ways than one

Hey, that rhymes.

It’s hot as BALLS outside today, and it has been for the past few days. I’ve wanted to go for a run but I also didn’t want to melt into a puddle. This morning I was up early, so I got out at 7am when it was only 80ºF (“only”). With about a zillion % humidity.

Despite all that whining I just did, it went okay. I decided to go for time, set my app for 30 minutes, and headed out with the intention to take it a slow and easy. 2.27 miles later I was done. I didn’t melt, and I don’t have a headache. A cold shower afterwards felt good.

This weekend I finished up most of the work on the bathroom. I painted and sealed the stained grout, re-caulked around the tub*, and used caulk the same color as the grout to go over the trim tile seams so it was all match-y. It looks much better. Now I have to paint it a neutral color; every real estate site I’ve read gives the advice to sellers, “Don’t be that house with the orange bathroom”– mine’s pink, but same idea. It’s been pink for 3 years now, and I’m kind of over it anyway. Time for boring taupe? beige? grey? Probably not grey, everything’s warm-toned off white. greige?

*My husband caulked it last time and he is a TERRIBLE caulk-er. He just smears it everywhere. Yes it takes patience and a steady hand to smooth it and he has neither. I was happy to pull his mess off.


Sorry for the picture of the bathroom, but it looks so much brighter now! No more stained grout and brown sealant.
