Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis

Faith

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

How About Toilet Trouble!

Oh my, what a beginning to a week! I noticed last week that the bathroom floor seemed like it was sort of wet. I thought the 5 girls had been sloppy, dried it and went on.
Then on Saturday, I noticed the wood laminate flooring in the bathroom starting to buckle. There was a leak under the toilet, seeping along under the floor.

So, it looks like we will be "remodeling" a bathroom. If you have to change the floor, you may as well paint right? And fix a few other things too. :)

We had agreed to no jobs being done until the siding was finished, but this one seems that it will have to trump the siding for now.

Here is a lovely picture of the floor buckling.


The hole in the floor actually reminds me of some of the "toilets" we saw in Ukraine.

Does your insurance cover that one?! I hope so!

I think we are going to skip the insurance on this one. We have had 2 major files in the last 5 years. One for a bad hail storm and one for a major water leak.

I think we will enjoy this remodel though. We plan to put tile in the bathroom instead of wood flooring. That way, we won't have this problem again.

I also want to put in a pedastal sink. That way there will be more room to get Erika in and out of the bath tub. I just might talk mike into a REALLY complete remodel and remove the tub completely and make a slanted flat shower area. The bathroom is big enough for this. Erika is not getting any smaller and This way she could shower herself on a shower chair. That is something we really need.

For now, everybody is in OUR bathroom. :) yippie.

When we got home from church on Sunday, the floor was still wet and nobody had showered since the night before. :)
