I've been able to use the other bathroom on this floor a couple times, but sometimes it doesn't work if people stay up later than me. sigh. I do feel good about the small improvements ^^ I found the best of the message board posts really inspiring. Thinking of it like a challenge kicked my pride into gear, haha.
I hope both of you well in your own attempts <3 thank you both so much for the support and to listening & replying
