This morning, Mad's room looked like this:


and now it looks like this:


and our guest/TV room looked like this (with all the furniture removed, please ignore the purple walls that are going away ASAP):


and now it looks like this:


...and that big hole was once two adjacent closets -- one in the guest room, and one in Madeleine's room -- that will soon be a second bathroom. One we've been waiting for and wanting for a long, long time. Ever since Sars came to visit and our one bathroom flooded. Over the weekend. On a Sunday. PS. It's Sars's birthday today. Happy birthday, Sars! We got you a new bathroom.

I'll keep you updated on the progress as it happens. Our contractor has told us it should take 3 to 4 weeks but things are moving so fast I think it will be done sooner. I may or may not be able to show you after pictures, depending on whether a) I've died from the stress of half our belongings being in the dining room or b) I fall into a hole or c) contractual obligations. What the hell am I talking about? I'll tell you later.
