All done! New year, new bathroom

The holidays are always a busy time. Finishing a major construction project while working everyday meant chaos and a delayed post. So here it is, the last steps to the final product!
By Friday, way back on Dec. 18, the bath tub was finally installed. Bob the contractor could finish what was delayed.

Now, there is a giant litter box for Casey (it IS the bathroom!) and a few floor mats, but you get the picture.
So far, BathFitter fulfilled half of its promise for screwing up and delaying the work, and getting that was like pulling teeth. I’m sure the local franchise will take care of the rest of its responsibility.
So… The place is much brighter and less cluttered. Plus, there’s a LOT more storage!

And something here is gone, too.

Next project is buying a bed for the room I say is Casey’s before my brother and sister-in-law visit, later this month. That’s where we stored all the bathroom stuff. It needs a good cleaning.

Then, all three bedrooms are going to need work, some more than others.

I hope to post again before the next construction project.

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.
