The Awesomeness of August

So what exactly have I been doing this past month?


This:





I wish!



This:

Relaxing by the pool

Wrong again.



This:

GARDENING TOOL

Nope.


 
 
OMG!  It's them!  Sassy Sandy and Marvy Mike!  We did take time to celebrate Papa Mike's 74th birthday (suck it in Dad).  Doesn't my mom make the perfect trophy wife :)
 
 


I have been doing this:

Kids watching the construction in mid-summer.

 
Because you have to stay on top of them.

 
 
Decisions.

Exactly three weeks ago, we packed all our shit from downstairs in a POD.  The framers were our movers.  They are used to cramming stuff in a pick up...a POD was no different.  They will, however need to unpack us.
 
And then we began...

  1. Wow! What is the plan, is that an addition, oh I'm very excited about this I love a good project.
    How did the POD work out? We nearly went that route but in our urban neighbourhood with a small driveway we quickly realized we had no place to put the thing, so we moved our stuff into a rental apartment and stored the big items with the movers. What a commotion that all was.
    So you're living upstairs but what about a kitchen, is it picnic living for the two of you?
    Happy Birthday to Papa Mike and it's great to get an update from you Dollface. XO

    1. I shall post more pictures later this week. Hunter says I haven't documented very well...took me awhile to find my camera. Kitchen is functioning. I have to wipe it down every time I cook. We are in the throws of sheetrock.

  2. What have you been keeping from us BB!! How very dare you ;P

    I want a POD even though I don't really know what it is. Where do I sign up?

    I had to move halfway across town and split my belongings in two cities and about 5 different locations.

    Your folks look a hoot and look so happy together. Hope your dad has a fab birthday x

  5. Major framing job there! I can't imagine doing something that comprehensive, but you guys know what you are doing. Dry wall dust is the most insidious, eternal stuff.

    So cute about your Papa-- my 90 yr old Mum does not feel she's old enough to have had me!
