2 1/2 bathrooms!!! 
We are flying Friday to LA to surprise my husband's best friend.  Since it is a surprise there hasn't been a lot of communication.  The best friend's girlfriend is working out the details w/ my husband but I haven't really talked w/ her.  I found out another friend will be staying with them as well.  I started doing the math, the two of us, the two of them, the friend = 5 .... how many bathrooms do they have!! I know they live in the city so I started assuming 1 and freaking out a bit.  Then, another friend called my husband today who I knew visited LA friend recently.  So I started yelling to my husband "find out how many bathroom's they have."  And I am so relieved to hear 2 and 1/2!!! The 1/2 is extra great b/c you never have to worry about someone showering in there.  Skippy!! Woot!! It is the little victories! yeah

:)... That oughtta alleviate some stress.... Good to hear....
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

I know how you feel! We camp on friends property without running water or facilities. Every morning I would go out in the woods with my coffee shovel and toilet paper and dig my hole before I had to go and then hang out for 45 minutes. Or if I was really sick, we would have to stay home. They built an outhouse and shower last summer! I was so happy!

Have a fun vacation!

It's the first thing I think about when I go anywhere.  Once I got on a small plane that didn't have one.  I had to go when I got on the plane==I didn't want to miss the boarding while I was in the bathroom, so I "held it" for a whole miserable hour.  No accidents, but man, what a bad time!!!  "they ", the non-chronies==just dont get it yeah


My  house has 3.5 bathrooms, and I am living alone in it.   Ha!   eat your heart out!! devil
