Weekend todo: Owie edition

On Tuesday morning I did yoga. It felt great but during the day, the obliques on the left side started hurting. It got worse and by Thursday morning they were screaming. I still made it in to work on Thursday, but went home before lunch and continued to work from home. I'm working on accepting that I won't get as much done this weekend as I usually do. Gotta take it easy. The obliques are core muscles. They're involved in lots of movements, including walking. Sitting still is my best bet for getting better.

Bathroom DIY plans

Yellow bathroom plans
  • Remove bathtub silicon caulking
  • Put fan on timer to dry out wood for at least one week
  • Recaulk bathtub
  • Remove silicon from around sink
  • Clean bathroom fan
  • Install splash guards
  • Repair grout on counter
  • Recaulk sink
  • Install fan timer
  • Paint light: take down, sand, paint with rust preventing color, paint with glossy yellow color
  • Paint hooks on door yellow
  • Paint vent cover yellow or white
  • Paint tower fan
  • Paint space saver: disassemble, sand, paint rust preventing color on metal bits, paint glossy yellow color
  • Prepare cabinet for painting: remove doors and drawers, remove hinges, strip current wood finish, spackle holes from hinges, sand hinges
  • Paint cabinet: Paint cabinet frame, paint hinges, reinstall everything straighter than before.
  • Paint baseboards white: Remove, sand, primer, glossy white paint, polyurethane. Or use same finish as cabinet? 

Pink bathroom plans
  • Put up shower handle holder
  • Apply more anti-slip flowers to bathtub floor
  • Install soft floor 
  • Remove bathtub silicon caulking
  • Remove silicon from around sink
  • Recaulk sink
  • Clean bathroom fan
  • Dry out wood for at least one week
  • Recaulk bathtub
  • Wood finish proof of concept: Take apart towel rod, strip current finish, sand, paint with pale stain, finish with polyurethane, put back together, rehang. 
  • Spray paint hardware: Hook, grab bar, vent cover, toilet roll holders. 
I've got ants in the yellow upstairs bathroom. One of my coworkers said that they like moist wood, so I think it's because the silicon caulking around the bathtub is mostly missing. 

I have two full bathrooms upstairs, one yellow and one pink. Since I have two and live alone, I can afford to use them selectively. I use the pink one for going to the toilet, and the yellow one for showering. I quite like that division. The yellow one feels so much cleaner because I never use the toilet in there. 

But I've got to stop using the yellow bathroom shower for at least a week while I let the construction wood dry out in there. The pink bathroom shower handle just hangs loosely from the hose. So before I can start using it, I need to install a holder. At first I thought that would mean drilling into the wall, but it turns out that silicon glue works fine for shower handle holders nowadays. So I got one from Amazon this week. Installing that will be my first task.
