did you miss me?

Did you miss me?

Did you notice my complete and total absence from the mighty land of interwebs???

Oh okay, I wasn't really GONE gone. I was so totally here. Sneaking and peaking and doing naughty things with your lawn ornaments...

I read some blogs, listened to some shows but more importantly I did get some work done around here... and for every BIT of work I got done the Mr. got a LOT of work done. And we ate sushi.

And while I intended to say we didn't freaking barbecue, not a weekend goes by that I don't toss something good on the grill so, yeah, we did a little bit of that too.

So you must all be thinking that I have a toilet in my main floor bathroom now right? Isn't that what I was doing this weekend? Installing a toilet... Well Mr. Kaos is sitting in bed next to me, I on my laptop and he on his (sexy isn't it?) lets ask him if there is a toilet in the main floor bath and see what he says... hold on I want to quote him exactly:

"Why are you asking me that? That's not fair. What the hell is your problem? Don't do something funny about it, we're working really hard on that thing you know what I'm sayin?"

That is an exact quote.

As you may have guessed there is not a toilet (or a sink) in my bathroom. There is however a great place for the toilet to sit.

You see we had to get the drywall in before we put in the toilet... but in order to get the drywall hung we really needed to solve a problem with the vent...

This is what it's like having an old house.

We had to fix the vent issue because once the drywall was hung we wouldn't have access to the ducts... and if we don't have duct access we certainly can't fix the vent...

Savvy?

Makes sense?

It should. Cause we spent the weekend doing it. And installing a vent thing too.

Tomorrow... into each life a little music must fall...

You'll have to throw a party when the bathroom is done. We'll all go to our bathrooms and flush at the same time.

you know...that is precisely why things dont' get done around my house. One thing always needs to wait for something else, and I go in circles until I don't really feel like doing anything. LOL

mielikki said...

ah the neverending toilet saga. Once its done, you'll rest on your laurels for, say, a minute, then look at each other and ask "what's next?"
lol

Bubblewench said...

does the toilet wipe your ass for you too? Damn. All that for a toilet???

I'm with LindyLoo! FLUSH PARTY!!

CamiKaos said...

LL: A flush party. HOW FAB. we are so going ot have to do that.

Corey: I am so glad someone gets it... it is just a cycle of home repair.

M: The kitchen, that's what.

Flutter: It is a rather nice toilet, more importantly it won't leak or slice open my hand like the old one.

BW: Yeah, I just don't like inanimate objects touching my ass... ;)

angel said...

soooooo... the water has been switched on in the meantime right?

Jo Beaufoix said...

Hmm, If we're going to have a flush party we'll need to synchronise watches.

It's 10.41 pm over here.
What time is it there?

CamiKaos said...

it's 2:41 here. we will have to think carefully about this... When the time comes we will find an agreeable time...

You may as well keep that lawn ornament. I can't even look at it anymore.

Amira said...

You've been blogrolled by moi. Feel special? ;) (PS It helps that you're an Oregonian.)

We have to remodel a bathroom upstairs sometime this month. Can you feel my enthusiam. Good times.

Looks like we are getting some sunny days this weekend. Hope you get to enjoy it.

Don't get me started. Old house + remodel jobs of any size + my husband and I = a starring role in Judge Judy's courtroom.

Oooh, it makes me shiver just to think of it.

Lori- Fairytales & Margaritas said...

Thank God we moved into a new house! I pray we don't have to do any home repairs. Because I'm the fix it in the house!

sybil law said...

Um, count me out of the toilet party. Unless that means lots of drinking and then I'll be hugging it later, but... yeah... no; scratch that. No party for me.
And for the record, I always miss you. :)
