How To Improve Your Sanity During the Covid Crisis

It’s unbelievable. While it seemed that life was about to finally get back to normal with the gradual opening of states, all of a sudden an uptick in COVID-19 cases has hit the country like a tidal wave. While many governors have vowed not to completely shut down states again many are still not fully opened. And, to…

How Does A "Neat Freak" Deal With A Bathroom Remodel?


Ooooo Kay.

In two days the bathroom remodel (that has been desperately needed for over 10 years) begins in full force.  Our cast iron tub will be demolished with a sledgehammer, our old parquet floor will be torn up, cracked sink thrown in the dumpster and the walls will come a tumblin' down.  I'm trying to focus on what the final product will be - not on the massive mess, noise, dust and inconvenience this is going to be.

Did I mention, we only have one bathroom?  And... my husband and I both work from home.

Our tiny house has only one bathroom and it's demolition/remodel will cause a ruckus. How am I, a slight "neat freak", going to stay calm and deal with the impending mess and disruption that, we've been told, will go on for two weeks?

Pots of Tension Tamer tea?  Blasting "Relaxation for Meditation" music? ("Relax! Now!!")  Get a prescription for Valium?!  

Have you had a remodel in your home?  If so, how did you get through it with your nerves intact?  Any advice/guidance is much appreciated.

Thank you so much Ashley!  I can only imagine what it was like with children under the age of 3 AND home construction.  Hopefully the weather will be pleasant and I can write/create in our garden the whole time ;->

We moved in our house before it was 100% completely remodeled and I'll be honest, it was a little bit of a headache. I had two little ones under the age of 3 which meant still having nap times. Nap times and hammering, drilling, banging, etc. do not mix. Anyways, with all that said, we made it through it. Patience is the key word! Hang in there Ann! :)
