Yesterday was a strange day. Today was even stranger.
My dad took my litter box out of the nearly-empty bathroom and put it in the hallway next to the paper sacks full of stuff. Then he took the sink off the wall and put it in the garage (I didn't know sinks came off the wall). And then he covered everything in the bathroom with large sheets of plastic. Then he shut the door and for the next several hours there was all kinds of commotion in there: scraping noises; loud noises like The Beast only twice as loud; clanking and thumping noises; then muffled swish-swish noises. And after a while a peculiar, noxious smell came out from under the door. Finally he emerged covered in a fine dust and holding a paintbrush in his hand. A huge mass of noxious-smelling air came wafting out from the open doorway. I have smelled this smell before, but not nearly this strong and usually from much, much farther away. It was bad enough when it was faint, but this is really strong here in the house and I don't like it. Hanging out by an open window helps, but it's so pervasive that it's hard to be free of it. The whole house smells like it, no matter where I go. After my mom and dad put all the stuff back in the bathroom I almost had to hold my breath when I went in to use in my box. I went wee as fast as I could and got away from there pronto.
Well, I must say that the bathroom looks really nice now, after all the commotion is over. The smell is awful but it looks nice. So I don't feel quite as crabby as I did yesterday. And once the smell goes away even more, I'll be even less crabby than I am now.

Sounds like you had an interesting day!!!
It was more annoying then interesting. At least the paint smell is not so bad today.
Oh, I hate that smell, too, Won-Ton!!! Before we moved from our old house to this new big one, they painted the WHOLE HOUSE inside to make it nice for the sale. It looked nice, but the mess and the smell made me very cranky. Does the new bathroom look pretty?
The new bathroom looks very pretty. It is so soothing to be in there, and the smell is almost completely gone. I am nowhere near as crabby as I was because everything is almost exactly like it was before, and the parts that aren't the same are better.
