Sometimes when you don’t have two nickels to rub together you just have to muddle through.
In the midst of the muddling sometimes you just give up when there are more things than a bathroom to worry about.
Things like broken windows, doors that won’t close, ceilings coming down around your ears, inadequate heating and a shifted foundation.
Issues related to a friends house I’ve been addressing – did a temporary floor patch to keep the toilet from falling through and repaired the ceiling and what amounts to a sort of wainscoting above the shower tile line with some bead board and trim.
Next step is to pull the tub, repair the walls, make whatever plumbing repairs are necessary, remove the flooring and install new joists and subflooring, install a new tub and shower head, and then it’s good to go.
Seems to me in the most affluent country in the history of the world people ought to at least have a decent bathroom.
Seems to me there ought to be a lot more people helping people than there is.
Seems to me there ought to be an administration that gives a damn.
