Tile Tile Everywhere

The back splash is all but finished. It's all over except the grout and the plan is to finish that tonight. And, because we're just on a roll (or something) we've decided to do the floor too. The reason for doing the floor is because, much like the paint in this 2 year old house, the tile sucks. It is a great disappointment actually, because we moved here thinking LOOK! A nice house! Built by a good builder! And it's BARELY been lived in...and then we moved in and in less than a month the tile.started.cracking. And now that the backsplash is SO pretty the cracked kitchen floor just doesn't really fit in anymore. **Side note** I know that houses settle and cracking tile is normal, but it's more than that, the tile has chipped in LOTS of places for things that I don't believe should have hurt good tile.

So, we are hunting for tile. A suggestion for all you tile stores out there. If you are CLOSED, please take your OPEN sign down, or turn it off. It's kind of annoying to pull in with a welcoming sign saying OPEN please spend your money here, only to be met with a locked door. We did manage to find a few truly open stores this weekend, though.

And despite my wishy washy ways; "No, I think that's too dark, too red, too light, too bumpy, too glossy, not textured enough, not big enough, no that one's just ugly" we have it narrowed down to a few choices. Tomorrow I need to go to the store we used for the backsplash and compare.

Oh, and the kids... not so thrilled with the tile shopping. "It's BOW-ing" said Mark, "Yea, boring!" agreed Eric.
