Renovations continue. Status report: I now need to buy a new toilet. Though not budgeted for, hubby called me Sun. night to inform me that we needed to buy a new toilet now, despite my telling him that we don't need to waste money buying a toilet for the downstairs bathroom when ours works perfectly fine. When asked why we NEED a toilet now, hubby replied, "Um, I think it has something to do with your Dad hitting it with a hammer." "Why did he do that? Did he have some sort of accident?!" "Nope, it might have had something to do with me telling him to hit it with a hammer." Then Dad chimes in, "It was FIFTEEN years old! It needed replaced." Now, someone tell me why a toilet needs replaced when it still works perfectly fine.
I can't wait to see what else was conveniently "broken" and replaced while I'm away.
