Thirteen reasons I re-did my bathroom (for Rachel)

1. There was a leak behind the tile.

2. The tile started to mold.

3. It smelled like someone pooped in my bathroom when I took a shower.

4. The linoleum was ugly and stained.

5. I love taking long baths!

6. Hurricane Ike destroyed my roof...

7. and some of my ceiling...

8. and some of my sheet rock/painted walls...

9. and some of my carpet (I had a mushroom growing inside my house by my back door because the carpet was soaked)...

10. and I have a good insurance company that issued me more than I needed to fix the necessary repairs...

11. and my dad, Joe, has some serious hook-ups with carpentry/tile work...

12. and I got my roof replaced and bathroom fixed and still have money left over!

13. Last of all, I picked out the tiles and border all by myself, man not needed!

Yes, I love my new bathroom, except the gold trim. It was very expensive to have all that changed so maybe if I teach summer school I will. Thanks for the compliments!

I love that you made this into a Thursday 13! You did a great job (both on the bathroom and the post)!

I agree with Krystyn!
It looks great (as I said before!)
I cant believe Ike did all that to you!

Is it totally bad that I laughed out loud at #9??

9. and some of my carpet (I had a mushroom growing inside my house by my back door because the carpet was soaked)...

Oh Emily! :)
