I Want Cute

Hola! Buen dia!
If you read my post about changing plans in the bathroom, then you know I just want the sink in a different place than we had planned.
Well, I don't see this as such a big deal, but the guys, all three of them did make a big deal out of it.

First, Senor and Rosario and Marcello discussed it together in Spanish. 
Then Rosario and Marcello discussed it.
 Then Marcello discussed it with himself.
 And Rosario just went out and took a walk around the yard because he figured, correctly, that he would be the one doing the work.

Then I discussed it in English and nobody paid any attention to me, so I basically discussed it with myself.
That's okay, no problem, I know how to talk to myself.

I just want the sink to be in a different place. No big deal. What do I care if the plumbing is already all put in for it to go in a different location. I don't want it there. I changed my mind.

So in the photo above, obeying my wishes, and two times referring to me as the jeffe (boss), Rosario is digging up the floor for the second time and getting ready to let Senor come in with his saws and blow torches and whatever else he needs to re do the plumbing.

The photo below is of the shower stall wall. 
Now I had to make some minor adjustments there as well.
Senor had Marcello making very large niches in the adobe. 

Well, I don't want that. I explained that I want cute little niches that will hold candles and other pretty things.

I don't want big openings that will hold towels and toiletries and stuff like that.
I want cute.
 They all three stood there and stared at me like I am absolutely crazy. 
So now I am jeffe loco.
But, see that candle burning in the niche?
Now is that cute or what?
Que le vaya bien!!!

Oh-my-God, your husband really, really loves you!

Of course, if I had changed my mind, I would have been the one doing the work, cause after Hubby broke his arm, most of the construction was done by me and the kids.
