Before we were given the stay-at-home order, Roland and I had ordered some tiles to finish the kitchen and change out the carpet in the bathrooms. We had asked about toilet removal and were told that the contractors worked together and NOTHING would stop the production. I think maybe COVID could . . .
We do have two bathrooms and so would be able to use the one that wasn’t being worked on. Still it seemed unpredictable. We didn’t feel good about it. Especially after Lowes called to say they had received half the order and they would deliver it. Um . . . no. We want the whole order. None of this waiting around for what MIGHT or MIGHT NOT happen. We cancelled the order and said we would try again once COVID had ended (because by that time the Stay-at-home order had gone into effect – and though we would have liked to support the employment of those in need of finances seriously how would the crew be able to social distance in our bathroom? Our entire house isn’t that big.)
It seemed a good time for road construction and many home projects but NOT the toilet. I see pictures that have been posted by friends who grew gardens and added rooms and decks and landscape and what have you. But every time I see a toilet I cringe thinking of all the time we may have waited for delivery and installation and possibly been without a second toilet – never mind the toilet paper.
