Ode to the one full bath

Oh bathroom, how do I hate thee?  Let me count the ways...

One is for ventilation or lack thereof

Two is for the vice grips that fall off every morning

Three is for the layout (aka where is the toilet?)

Four is for the fabulous florescent lighting

Five is for the undersize tub



Six is for the stellar plumbing

Seven is for the lack of a proper vent

Eight is for the cross contamination of hot water into cold...

(can you say lukewarm showers anyone?)

Nine is for the inconvenience of dealing with rigging up a temporary (outdoor?) shower while we renovate.  Hopefully in the WARM months

Ten is for the amount of time a project like this takes...
