In-laws are coming out again this summer. Last summer we had shut down our upstairs guest bath because it had a major leak that was running down into our kitchen. Since we didn't have a spare bathroom for them to use (and the guest room has been a storage room for the past 2.5 years) they didn't stay with us last summer, but stayed with their three daughters instead (who invariably pitch and moan about who got more time with their parents -- and the parents hate going from house to house to house to visit -- they just want to stay in one place and have everyone come to them -- but hey, that's their problem. I didn't invite them out here!) Haven't had the time/money/inclination to do anything about the bathroom yet. husband sez to me last weekend that we'd better do something about that bathroom if his parents are going to stay with us while they're out here this summer. I replied that I did not know they were coming out here or that they were staying with us. He didn't have anything more to say. I know that was really passive of me, but if I come out and say I don't want them to stay with us it will really hurt his feelings. So do you think he'll notice if I drag my feet on this (again)? Of course, I also have a feeling that whatever repairs are needed will be a major deal up in that room, so if I just go ahead and get an estimate and show him that we can't afford the work right now, that alone could be my excuse for not doing it.
