|Talk about a dud

Eddie was a washout. Or not, depending on how you look at it. I'm not disappointed, mind you. I'm not surprised, either. On the plus side, we got a day of very nice, gentle, and much needed rain. On the minus side, Husband will have to mow the grass this weekend (for the second time this summer).
I had a decadent day of lounging about the house. I had french toast for breakfast, all by myself. I actually got to soak in a bath instead of rushing through ten minutes of frantic washing and hair rinsing. I drank two cups of Rainforest Blend coffee in the middle of the afternoon. I totally kicked Middle Daughter's butt playing chickenfeet. I watched way too much HGTV.
I also finished up the laundry that didn't get done last night, dusted the entire house (goodbye, sheetrock dust!), cleaned the bathroom, and even threw together a chickpea salad for lunch tomorrow.
I'll bet you're wondering about the sheetrock dust. Am I right? Oh...well...I'm going to talk about it anyway. I was dusting up all the sheetrock dust because the sheetrocking in the bathroom is done! Woot! Now the fun stuff can start. Only, I still haven't picked out any tile and can't decide exactly what I want. I really love cottagey wainscotingy bathrooms and think that style would work well with the house and the size of the bathroom, but then I also wanted something a little more sophisticated since the bedroom isn't exactly cottagey nor wainscotingy. Plus, I already bought a soap dish and toothbrush holder and got an awesome deal (75% off! Whoo Hoo!) but it seems a bit silly to decorate an entire bathroom off of $10 worth of accessories. I think I will just go to a tile store and see what grabs me. Hopefully it will be tile.
