Blessed that my hubby has plumbing skills.
Blessed that we have a tractor to do most of the digging.
Blessed to live in a rural area where we don't have to pay lots of money for permits, and a plumber to do something we are able to do ourselves.
Though we still have a long way to go, we are blessed to have a functioning master shower, even if does have a painter's extension pole for a rod, and the curtain is tied up with ribbon.... until I get to the store later this week.
Blessed to have what 2.6 billion people (about 40%) in the world do not have....an indoor toilet.
Actually we have 4, three in the house and 1 in the milk barn.
More blessed (in terms of plumbing) than
1.6 million Americans. YES, 1.6 MILLION Americans do not have indoor toilets, per 2014 census info.
(When you live in a renovation, things don't necessarily get done in the normal order i.e. toilet before walls)
Of course I will be thrilled when the bathroom shiplap walls go in, the details are done, and it looks pretty.
But I am thankful for the lessons along the way.
