We are moved in!

Moved in but not settled in.  Colin's jobs are piling up ( thank goodness as in $$$ ) and he is out more than in.  I have been spending my days dealing with who else but the trades!!!  Yes still seeing those guys.  Between 3 and 6 per day but most days 5, first one yesterday arrived at 8AM and the last one left at 9PM!!!  Then we get dinner and I fall into bed.  Everything is coming together but so very very slowly.  Our fantastic view gets me through it.

There are things happening behind the scenes that make coping difficult and then losing my entire inbox in the computer did not help nor did a piece of furniture arriving damaged, big sigh.  But we are very very slowly getting there.

Not sure when we will get to Mexico, certainly later than desired.

I did find time for 15 minutes of relaxation. My new whirlpool tub is fantastic.

One day the stained glass window will arrive or so we hope and then there will be privacy in our bathroom.  Heck I can't even use the toilet when the trades are here.

This has been the longest I have ever gone without posting and I will endeavour not to let it happen again.  Besides I have all kinds of stories and photos to share with you.

    That tub looks pretty awesome. Oh wait.
    Congratulations on moving in!
    There, got that out of the way.

    We were just the other day having a brief discussion on whether we want to keep a tub when we continue with our home renos (ya, we’re not done)
    My wife’s biggest concern is being able to get out of the thing again.
    Personally, I don’t think it’s that big a deal.
    Of course, we could sell our house….
    But then we’d have to move. I don’t think that’s gonna happen. Besides, we have to move back from Europe first. One thing at a time.

    Got snow tires on that motorhome?

      Jannose…I am, used it 3 times now.

      Longdog…..I had to push for the 15 minutes.

      Robert…..the jets make the bubbles really thick.

      Mary…..twas mi amore.

      Elaine….Colin of course….the problem is that the window is still open to the outside so I have to be careful re time of day bathing, etc.

      Connie….used Avon bubble bath but very very little…..the jets make them froth!

      Marty….thanks…..for certain I will recover in Mexico and be into enjoyment when we get back here in April.

      Danshula…..funny you ask….I did give them a bath in the bath right after!!

    Ooh, a riske photo. lol. When you have a tub with bubbles like that, it is simply sacreligious to spend only 15 minutes in it no matter how busy you are. It is all going to be lovely and worth the effort.

  5. robert says:

    ooh what happen if the bubbles goes away ??????

  6. mary klassen says:

  7. Elaine NB Canada says:

  8. Pat says:

  9. Connie - back home in PA! says:

    SPLISH, SPLASH! Contessa was taking a bath! WOW, what did you use to get all those suds/bubbles??? Love the corner tub – enjoy!!!

  10. Marty says:

    Glad you’re still kicking! Hopefully you’ll get all that extra stuff done soon and can just enjoy your new home.

  11. danshula says:
