You’re going to see my bathtub mentioned quite a few times in this post. Our week was a rough one. In addition to 7 family members getting a nasty stomach bug (everybody except me), our problems with our 30+ year old green, leaking (and apparently moldy) bathtub came to a head this week – so my husband missed three days of work to put in a new one.
That picture is of him… in our AC vent. Thank goodness he’s a small guy – he got his entire body in that small space (it’s around 30″x30″x30″) and worked there on and off for 3 days getting all the new pipes hooked up and working. More than anything – I’m thankful for him… the awesome husband, father, and handyman that he is!!
