Do You See What I See?

Could it be? Is that a new shower head in the TUB?? Will I be able to take showers like an adult? Showers that do not involve getting shampoo in my eye while I try to stand on one foot in a feeble attempt to shave my legs without falling out of the mini shower stall? It is like a dream come true.

I interrupt the regularly scheduled posts to bring you my sight from heaven:

[insert singing angels here]

Truly a sight to behold. I have not touched it or attempted to turn it on for fear that it is not real. B is at his job being employee of the month and all so I do not know the story behind this. All I know is that a plumber was coming today to look at it and now we have that beautiful shower head.  Oh, we also have this on the other side of the wall in the hallway:

That looks scary, but promising.  That means WORK WAS DONE.  Yay for work being done. Double yay for work being done in my shower.  Look! Further evidence. I think this is plumbing tools or parts or something. Oh the mystery!

Not only is this super exciting because I will finally be able to soap up without it being washed off at the same time, but we also had a little mishap in the mini shower. See for yourself:

Maybe you cannot tell in that picture. You better take a closer look:

See that? That is not a handle. That is a wrench. Yep, the stinking handle to the shower FELL OFF.  Just FELL OFF.  I really wasn't entirely surprised because I do remember the house inspector saying something like "Why look at this? They have this handle on with this little bitty pin."  Yep, I am kind of surprised it lasted this long.  As it broke off B said "maybe you should have showered first..." as if we were never going to shower again.  Luckily the wrench was found and all was well.

But now all will be GREAT!  No wrench, no squashed shower.  I feel so free. 

Look what else I came home to find:

That's the TV in my office mounted to my wall. It is like that B read my blog or something (to my knowledge he did not).  We still have to work on those wires, but it is fun and gives me a bit more room in the office.

Finally, on a completely unrelated note, thanks a lot cable guide for saying Lost was a repeat! Luckily I woke up from my "nap" at about 9:10 to the alert of a fellow Twitterer telling me it was not a repeat. Damn you Lost - wielding your insanity on the cable guide. 


Okay.  That is all.

Carry on.

Lucky the handle broke or the new shower head might have been "last on the list."

Ohhh I'm jealous! We so badly need to redo our bathroom but we are currently working on a fence and a new roof.

Tagged you for bag tag on my blog, play along if you want. :)

Jenny - you have no idea! Sad what my dreams have become.

Mom - you are SO right!! Now it is just the kitchen or Dani's big room last on the list.

LH - I almost addressed you as Lazy but that sounded rude ;) I think a new roof is probably really important. Isnt there always something to work on? Thanks for the tag, that sounds like a fun one and I will do it this weekend.
