The Weekly Photo Challenge theme is ‘Threshold’. The idea may be to add in a philosophical note with the photo, something about how the photo is a metaphor for something else, view to a new beginning or something like that. I don’t have anything very philosophical to add this week, nothing about how being a ‘Stay at Home Dad’ has changed my outlook, or the idea that I’ll be entering a new phase soon as Mr. C enters kindergarten in the Fall. All I have is a very literal contribution, it’s an actual threshold on my workbench.
Two years ago, we had our bathroom floor redone. As a result of the new tile having a different height than the old linoleum, the old threshold no longer fits in the same spot. The floor guy was skilled enough to be able to take out the threshold in one piece though. It wouldn’t take much work to get it back in to the same spot, I just need to remove a bit from the bottom. I’ll probably need a special router bit to do it. Have I been able to make any progress at all on this project in the past two years ? No. I’ve been working on plenty of other things though, this is just getting pushed further and further down the big list of things to do around the house.
Oh well, that’s what it’s like having an old house. I think ‘replace the threshold to the bathroom’ is number 174 on the big list of things to do around the house. Or maybe it’s just being too exhausted chasing after the 4 year old most of the time that I haven’t done this yet, which may qualify as the philosophical portion of the post after all.
