One more reason why I love that man...

Today I'm going to stray from my usual material (namely mommyhood-type stuff) and delve into the world  Scary, I know, but I've had requests for building updates and I wouldn't want to disappoint my readers (all 5 of them).

So while I've been preoccupied ...distracted by ...completely self-absorbed with the process of returning to work and all it entails, my beloved husband has been on his own journey - building our home.  He's been working hard.  REALLY hard. 

He's been out there pounding nails in high winds, snow, rain, and frigid cold.  The weather has not been very cooperative.  Now that March is here I had hoped we would get a little break from this winter madness - I think we've had enough!  In fact, on my way home from work today the billboard at the local church (usually displaying a feel-good spiritual message about love or family or other warm and fuzzy things) reads as follows:
Whoever keeps praying for snow, please stop.
No shit.

Anyway, all his hard work is paying off because what was once a hole in the ground is quickly taking shape into the house we've dreamt of building for years.
Foundation poured
Floor joists going on - there's my hubby!
Walls up
So that's how the house building is coming along.  Stay tuned for periodic updates - I anticipate that there should be some good blogging material to come as my husband and I try to agree on things like flooring and paint colours.  Dangerous.
