I didn't do it...


Sense of humor...not having a main floor bathroom for over a month has made me question if there is anything really funny in the world. But tonight reminded me that no matter what is happening...laughter is always the best medicine. I worked on the bathroom today for almost 15 hours trying to get everything finished hoping to have a completed bathroom by Monday!

Out of the kindness of her heart, my mom decided to come and help me grout and clean the shower tiles. And within minutes of calling it quits...I hear "OH SHIT!" I looked up and saw my mom staring at the wall repeating her favorite word (sounds like puck) over and over. Some how she cracked a tile and in fact part of it snapped off. Three days of lying tile, hours of planning and designing and in one second my mom cracks a tile! My first instinct...point my finger and say..."I didn't do it! You better tell dad in the morning before he comes over to help me that you broke the tile." So nice of me...so adult!

By the time she left, I pulled myself together and assured her that it was okay, a freak accident that could have happened to either of us and we would find a simple solution. And after all of that, tonight I am going to close my eyes knowing that "I didn't do it...mom did!"

aha! telling on your parents is so much fun! makes up for all those years as a kid under their thumb. i think your dad will figure out a solution to the tile, so just keep on moving to your goal.

Sounds like you're making progres if you're grouting. I can't weait to see it when it's done.

15 hours?! Here's hoping you reach your goal without too much more parental interference. ;-)

I find it easier to get through projects by just blaming other people. In fact, it's your fault that my shower curtain hook broke. Darn you!!

You KNOW I'm excited to see it done! We'll be tiling too (not for a while), and I am not looking forward to it.
I just keep repeating: "New bathroom, new bathroom..."

You shoulda spanked her....and sent her to her room.

AND docked her allowance.

Don't worry about it - I blame my mother for everything and find it very empowering.

Can't wait to see how everything comes out when it's finished!

How often does one get to tell on their parents? It's good that you got to embrace that moment. ;)

Sorry about the tile, though.
