When we bought our condo, the bathroom had recently been renovated. There was a new tub, toilet, sink, etc, and I guess the guy hadn’t gotten around to installing a mirror in the renovation. After we moved in, we spent a decent amount of time at Home Depot and we looked at bathroom mirrors, but the ones with the cabinets in them were kind of expensive and there was a lot of stuff to fix and do, so we never got around to it.
So, there is still no bathroom mirror above our sink.
This really bothers everyone who comes over. Like a lot.
They seem to see it as some kind of example of how we don’t have it together. But, first off, I mean there’s a lot of better examples of how we don’t have it together. And, secondly, unless you’re trying shave in the mirror — which I’m pretty sure none of our guests have tried to do — why do you care?
Not looking at myself every time I need to use the sink hasn’t been a big problem in my life. I know what I look like. It’s not a secret. We still have a full-length mirror in the bedroom if I need to use it. I’m not adverse to getting a mirror eventually, but I’m not totally sure why everyone needs one.
