Plumbing, Painting & Doorknobs!

So.....Turns out that Soni's and my home teacher is... (drum roll, please) a PLUMBER!! Which for Soni and I is like manna from heaven!! Since our cousin (after numerous-and I mean NUMEROUS- texts and phone calls) is still a NO-SHOW!! WTH?!?!?! Not sure if we offended him or what?! At this point, I think I'm more offended! :(
Saturday, after a mid-singles breakfast at Gourmet Pie (YUM!), Soni and I head over to work some more on the place. (UGH!) We were meeting our HT/Plumber so we felt like at least something would be getting done!
Wade... our HT, got the downstairs toilet installed (YAY!) and the bathroom faucet in.
*Note... this is not our plumber... I just thought the pics were hilarious!*

Soni... finished all of the grout sealing and has been unloading boxes.
I... painted my bathroom door, painted my balcony railing, put a doorknob on my bathroom door, fixed the upside down light switch in my bathroom (I was in a hurry last week OK?), switched out the deadbolt and doorknob on the front door, sanded and then painted the laundry closet doorway.
Soni and I both... went to Lowes (TWICE!), finished putting the hardware on the kitchen cabinets...can you believe we had to buy nuts to put on the backside of the screws b/c 1 1/4" screws were too short and 1 1/2" screws were too long and they don't make in-between!! C'mon! What else could go wrong?!
What else? I'm glad you asked! We went to open the vanity to put in the upstairs bathroom and guess what? Yup, it was broken! :) You just have to laugh!! Luckily, Lowes delivered it, so I'm sure they'll take it back. Soni and I were joking about all the set backs that we've had, and I had to ask, "If the Lord didn't want us to live here, shouldn't He have clued us in BEFORE we bought it?" :) We are trying to stay positive... we have a plumber-BONUS! And we have some numbers for electricians for our kitchen lighting-just have to get some estimates and pick one! And finally, the carpet is in and ready to be installed as soon as we are ready for it! (Fingers Crossed, Prayers, Luck, send ALL good vibes our way!!)

Wow, you girls are doing everything! For a second I thought that those pictures were actually your HT (till I read your caption) and I got excited for you girls:-) The one fixing the sink is kind of cute:-) Oh, and I can't believe they don't make screws the right length for your doors. Good idea with adding the nut. When can we come over and help?

You guys seriously blow me away with all of this! Holy cow! I'm dying over the clown car post...I would have peed my pants laughing.

PS. You have the best audrey stories. Sometimes I wish I could be a fly on the wall in nursery.
