First, the progress:
The guest room was about half done this morning when the bathroom dude showed up to install our new tub and shower surround. I was feeling pretty confident that I would get it done, and I was already thinking about what other projects I could post about, since this worked so well to keep me motivated. The salesman that I worked with when we bought this shower system told me that installation usually takes two days, but since we did the demo and plumbing ourselves he thought this installation would be completed in one day. I guess he didn't share that theory with the installer. The dude showed up right on time. He was very nice and got right to work. Ninety minutes later, he left for the day. He said he'd finish everything tomorrow. Because I expected the work to be going on all day, I took the night off work. It was too late to change that, as my coworkers had already adjusted their schedules to cover for me. So I burned a vacation day. Also, the installer left all his materials and tools here. He has a lot of stuff, to the point that I wasn't able to get into the guest room to finish the cleaning. I was also planning to get the bathroom cleaned up and all the finishing - towel bars, shower curtain rod, etc, installed tonight. Sigh. There's always next weekend.
