Picture it - for the last few months, we have all been showering in the master bathroom and then going into the main bathroom to do things like shave or brush our teeth. Why? Because I refused to call the plumber until I could make the master bedroom look presentable. And that never happened because Larry insists on tearing apart different sections of our home, an activity that results in tons of misplaced items that all seem to wind up in my bedroom.
Case in point: I just pulled several pieces of 6-foot-long quarter-round out from behind my bed. If you don't know what quarter-round is, consider yourself blessed. I didn't know either, until I had the misfortune to set up housekeeping with a DIY-er.
What finally broke our plumbing impasse was my realization, while cleaning the master bathroom shower last week, that the tiles in the shower wall moved when I scrubbed them. I called the plumber to unclog the main tub so we could shower in the other bathroom, instead; and while he was here, I swallowed my pride and allowed him access through my cluttered bedroom to unclog my sink as well.

Look, I can't help it if you are getting confused. It's the Domino Theory of Home Renovation - one thing always leads to another. And everything costs way too much money.
I comfort myself with the fact that my laundry room is on Day 3 of remaining all cleaned out. Of course, it helped that the HVAC guys were down there for the past 2 days working. I'm thinking of putting a lock on the door now and not giving Larry the key. That way, he can't sneak anything back in there.
Anyway, I have a question completely unrelated to all of this. Can any of you recommend good women's hiking boots? They don't have to be too heavy duty (or expensive - see above, re lack of cash), just suitable for hiking in rocky areas. And they need a wide toebox, or I can't walk right. Suggestions?
