How’d I spend Valentine’s Day? Tiling! I came home from work yesterday to discover the “simple” job of replacing a faucet on our bathtub had left us a hole in the wall and a $675 bill for the work. Sure, the new faucet is there, but…

So anyway, after the trip to the tile store and Home Depot, it was down to business. Why are the tiles today just a tiny bit larger than those from the 1950s? And it goes without saying the colors are wildly different. In the end, it looks ok, and I do like the new hardware a lot, but boy am I tired…

Bottom line: If you’re looking for a plumber NOT to use in San Francisco, give me a shout.
