Contemplating the remodel
Early in the year, I wrote some stories, made a little money, got a little bit of freelance work. We're not broke in the large scheme, just in the day to day scheme, if you know what I mean. Then I wrote a novel proposal, sent it off, got a big, fun freelance gig, and now I have a seventy hour a week freelance job and a novel proposal to revise. I've got money!
I just don't have time to spend it.
Isn't that always the case?
But when I do spend it, I'm thinking of remodeling the bathroom. Friends of mine just remodeled their bathroom and it looks great. (At least in the video they sent me. I consider stuff like that to be the equivalent of porn. I was pathetically grateful that they sent it to me.) I've got all sorts of cool ideas, including a way to bring natural light into the most tornado proof room in our house. But everything I read about remodeling informs me that it doesn't have to be a horrible experience.
Everything I read.
Which is a little like when someone says, 'This won't hurt a bit.' Or my favorite, 'Remain calm.' The moment someone tells you to 'remain calm' you know you are screwed.
Maybe I should just get a wii and play Zelda and leave the bathroom as is. Just as soon as I have time.
