8:20 p.m…..Sooooo tired. Tonight I’ve been to 2 Home Depots, and Walmart, in addition to church tonight. I am trying to decide what I am going to do about the leg of the countertop where we do not have enough tiles to cover it. Right now it is wood, but I’m wanting to change it. Maybe. But I think I’m too tired to decide.
2:15 p.m….We haven’t been home very long. After church, Beth, Brandon, Rachael, Steve and I went to Skeeter’s for lunch. Beth saw a friend there…one of the photographers who is anxious for her to move to the photo lab. She did a lot of his pictures when she worked at CVS.
But before that, we went by our youth/music minister’s house. (Ethan…remember Dave’s house where we went the first time you came over? That’s it.) They had just put down a new wood floor in the back room….one we had to rebuild the walls in just 4 years ago. Well…the men rebuilt the walls. The ladies fixed lunch that day.
They did a beautiful job on the floor and they wanted us to see it.
Well, I’m going to grout some tile. Sounds exciting, huh? We have church tonight, but we are finished with the Dave Ramsey financial seminar, so I don’t have to cook dinner for the crowd tonight.

12:30 a.m…The tiles are on the countertop. Tomorrow we grout. But that’s only part of the countertop. This is an L-shaped counter. We’ve only done the part the sink is on.
Since so many of the blue tiles broke taking them off the old countertop, I had to add some tiles of a different color (we can’t get any more of these). So the edges of the cobalt blue tiles are trimmed in gray slate.
Ok, Carolyn…..here’s a pic of the tiled counter. It’s still a mess, but we are several steps closer to having a sink again! And I have to tile the wall behind the sink area, where the electrical outlet is. Taz is so glad to have her countertop back. This counter won’t sag….it is 2 layers of 3/4″ plywood, with 1/4″ of cement tile backer board on top of that.
