Big bathroom remodel: Done with day 1

Busy day at work, but also at home. The workers came bright and early, and gutted the place.

This is when they finished, courtesy Garry:
465Who knew there was cement under the floor? They had to cut through eight inches of it with a jackhammer. Glad I missed that.
And this is what I came home to:
I’m sick. Sneezed all day. Came home early and feel ____y. I think you get it. We’re expecting somebody to pick this (stuff) up. The workers took the rest of the restroom refuse.
The victim in all this:
Poor Casey. He deserves much better. Ask him.
So one day of construction completed. More than a couple to go. Look for a likewise lowdown on the lavatory later. Can’t wait to see the 21st century from the seat.

About the author

The journalism “business” has changed — from standards to platforms to layoffs — along with the American public, and I’ve managed to survive somewhat on my own terms.

I started in 1994, becoming an award-winning and respected TV newscast producer.

Even better was creatively producing websites and social media, and serving as a station's digital media manager — writing news, creating graphics and getting evidence of growing my audience here in the nation's fourth largest market, Philadelphia.

I also taught first grade for eight years. My principal saw my class website and made me electronic gradebook manager to assist co-workers when we stopped using paper gradebooks.

In 2018, I took courses and earned the Google IT Support Professional Certificate.

In 2019, I was a freelance newspaper reporter, but enjoyed copy editing and reviving the publication’s social media even more.

That got me striking out on my own with a local news website to join the blog I created, designed and write.

Ask me about all the details.

I did drive Uber to make ends meet until I started as a customer service representative at one of the world’s largest web-hosting companies, with more than 8 million customer contracts and hosting more than 12 million domains.

With classroom and newsroom experience, I know how to prioritize, analyze and take the best course of action. Getting results means attention to detail, following through and following up.
