We've rented a tile cutter, and got straight to work today.
J and I tiled 1/3 of the kitchen floor (we're trying to do it in stages so that we can move the fridge and stove onto the done part before we have to do the rest), and put up kerdi around the tub surround.
Tomorrow, we'll tile the tub surround, and hopefully grout the kitchen floor that we've done.
Wednesday hopefully we'll grout (and hopefully seal) the tub surround, so maybe we'll be back to full fledged showering by Thursday.
Luckily, our water is back to ON on a full-time basis, since J got the new shower faucet system up and running. Whew. No more strategic hydration.
I tried to snap some IN PROGRESS pics, to document our hard-core DIY productiveness, but unfortunately it looks like I've got to research new digital cameras since it looks like mine is done.
My little Kodak CX7330 did a valiant picture taking job for almost 5 years for me, but now the OK button doesn't work. When there hasn't been battery power for a while, the date setting resets, and when you turn the camera on, you can't get past the date reset function without being able to hit OK, meaning I can't use my camera for taking pics. I've done some research, and it looks like far too much trouble to have fixed, so I'll be looking for a new compact digi-cam.
If anyone has one that they love, I'd love suggestions. I don't want to spend more than $150, so bear that in mind with any opinions left for me.
It's funny how I don't use my camera THAT often, but when I want to use it and I can't, it really becomes a thorn in my side.
Time for bed, though. I'm done, just like my camera. Hopefully we'll both be better after a good night's sleep, but somehow I'm thinking that I'll be the only one fully restored in the morning. Sigh.
