You guys, I'm no hero. I'm just an ordinary citizen who is adding a bathroom to her house while her teenage daughter has been in the hospital with a kidney infection for 2 days.

Wait, I am TOTALLY a hero.

Workmen wait for no one, not even people who have to spend the night on hospital cots. The improvements continue apace. To wit:

1. Here is the original closet (check that wallpaper!). The other closet is behind the wall they knocked out to make the whole bathroom.


2. Yesterday (please note plumber's butt).


3. And this morning.


4. A shot of the new closet that's being built to replace the original closet(s). Y'all, they are making me CUSTOM METAL HANDLES for the doors. Can you EVEN?


This one's for Erin, who needed some proof that I am not a decorating superhero. Our dining room. It has looked like this all week. Today, it looks worse. You're welcome.


Thank you for all of your kind words on Twitter and elsewhere. The patient is feeling much better today, and I think we'll all be home by Sunday.
