The problem was that it was hard to find towels that I thought would look good in the bathroom. The paint color isn't really a common color and I was afraid of mismatching colors. And the cost of new towels stopped me dead in my tracks a few times. Really? That much for new towels?? And I need how many??
So it was the color and the cost of new towels that has prevented me for three years from buying new ones. But I did it. I bit the bullet and bought new towels last week. *
The color is actually "green moss" and not necessarily matching, but it's an improvement over the old towels. Anything is an improvement over the old towels. Any. thing.
So, to keep the boys' towels straight I appliqued their initial on the towel. It is handy for telling which towel belongs to whom and whose towel was left on the bathroom floor.
Yesterday afternoon I went upstairs to clean the bathroom and noticed this mess in the bathtub. I couldn't figure out what it was until I looked up ...
Freaking squirrels in the attic clawed through our ceiling! We put the drywall up over the original plaster/lath ceiling. They went through both layers.
I knew they were up there, but I felt sorry for them because of the four feet of snow we had. I can say that I feel sorry for them no more. Joe patched up the ceiling last night and we are in the process of eliminating the squirrels from the attic. I hope it goes quickly. Joe left this morning to go out of town and I can't fathom the idea of squirrels digging their way into our bathroom and bedrooms.
* The one good thing about getting four feet of snow in less than a week's time is that we went nowhere and spent no money. I had money leftover from our grocery and gas budget that I could afford new towels.
