Blood, Sweat and Tears – Oh and Splinters

Why does a man always go to the trust "Duct Tape" for quick repairs? lol so Tony noticed a hole in our vent on the roof at the front of the house and for temperary measure hung from the window and patched it with duct tape. It was so awesome (funny awesome)

This is what happens when you get excited and forget to vapour seal the area in which your about to sand. We learned our lesson after the 3 hours clean up. lol

The "inbetweens" of our Renovations

So although we are heavily into Renovations we have had time to stop and enjoy other things in life. I have been there to support my sister in a big step in her and her families life when she received her "Masters" in nursing which I'm sure took a lot of sacrefices from her and her family. I am so proud of her for pushing through and for her amazing opportunity that resulted in her thesis paper. Moma and I also took a little time out to watch the strongest woman in the entire world bring down the house and come out of retirement for one last tour. A woman that I would like to say reminds me of my mother :) (brownie points for me) Did I mention what takes FIVE Spice Girls to manage takes only 1 Tina Turner to trump - "GIRL POWER".

I also enjoyed a beautiful baby shower for my best-friend, which was surrounded by an abundance of joy and love.. and a game that I beat everyone at. I'M JUST SAYING for the record. ;) I watched my nephews Christmas Concert which was so cute (Who knew watching your nephew cry while dancing around a Christmas tree would turn out so cute), and also managed to catch the Santa Clause parade with my nieces and new nephew Zander, despite the fridged cold weather all in all I had a great time.

Love to you all and thanks for sharing these moments with me.

Phase one complete

Well this past weekend was a big weekend for us, as we are 98% complete with Phase one of our renovations. A big relief we are finally here and things are starting to feel like a natural flow of living. Although there is no drywall and it looks a little mahemish it really is better then ever. Amazing what a finished bathroom can do to your spirit. I find myself spending a little extra time in the shower mostly because I feel like I'm in a different world and as a open the door back to reality I can't help but get excited for the day that the view outside of the bathroom matches the view inside lol.

Hopefully Phase Two (drywall) will continue during or shortly after the Christmas holidays. Hip hip hurray.
And on a separate note I just wanna thank all of you for the enormous amount of support we have been getting from all our family and friends it really goes along way and helps us moving forward.

All my love
