Will I Ever Learn Wednesday

This is going to be a short and sweet post. I didn't want anyone to think I was ditzy enough to forget it is Wednesday. So here goes...

WILL I EVER LEARN...

We, Jim and I, were shopping online. When we are on the internet together, it is kind of like going for a ride to an unknown destination. One of us drives, the other gives directions.

So, Jim was driving. I was giving directions. The desination was bathroom fixtures for our soon-to-be vintage bathroom.

We found some cool stuff - things that we were unable to find in any local stores. At one point we were looking at faucets. We found the perfect tub faucet and put it in the basket. Then we found a sink faucet we liked - but wanted to make sure it matched the tub faucet.

Remember, I'm giving directions and Jim is driving. We found a sink faucet we both liked, and then I directed him to the tub faucet link and had him click on it. The picture popped up and I was thrilled and told him "see, it's identical!". And Jim, the driver, said, "It should be, you had me open the sink faucet again". I had to giggle a bit.

Anyway, we ordered faucets, drains, fittings, towel bars, toilet paper holder, and what I am hoping is the perfect mirror. The cost was a gulp factor, but less for everything than a plumber quoted us for just the faucets and connecting stuff. He is a friend and was selling it to us at his cost. I think he (the plumber) ought to look into browsing the internet. But he needs to find his own navigator - I'm sure Jim wouldn't be willing to share such a talent as me!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week. This has been a very busy one for us so far.
