This is just my suggestion to make your restroom visits a little better.
In my office at work I have this small 5.5" digital picture frame right next to my computer. It shows the picture from my digital cameras memory card and has like 5 different settings. You can adjust the way the pictures change to the next and for how long they show for. And mine has at least 30 pics and it shows each one. Anyways I would think it would be cool to take pictures of things we like and put them on a big digital picture frame in the restroom. I know that going there for all of us stirs up terrible emotions. Well, that was just a tip if anyone wanted to read this kind of long post. Im in a postive mood today and going to try and better my life b/c i need to get it together...As soon as I can afford a nice one I am going to buy one. I saw a pretty good size frame at walmart yesterday for under $100.

That's a really great idea. I have a Kodak one on my computer desk that has internal memory as well as slots for memory cards. I think it can hold up to 1500 pics and/or videos. The only drawback I can see about adding a digital picture frame in a bathroom is if that bathroom has a shower/bath. Might short it out I think after a while. But that would be great in a half bath.

Yea didn't think about the condensation of hot showers. lol. That could mess it up in the long run. I'm a single parent of a toddler and usually shower with the door cracked so it doesn't get to foggy. Well I could put it right outside my bathroom door. I sure do get motivation on a bad day from seeing my daughter's funny and scary faces next to my monitor at work. lol. I also have friends and family pics and some of the mountainous areas where I was raised.

yeah, I am going to be redoing my bathroom and will try to make it more zen like, very calming and comfy, since I spend so much time in there.
