Quick Family Update + More

Hey peeps!

Last week I was going to post an update and with a snap of a finger the week was gone. My dad is still not better; it's turned into such a nightmare and at this point his arm may not be 100% every again. Since I last posted he's had more surgeries and the incision from the first surgery isn't healed yet. Basically not good peeps, not good at all. We just have to take it day by day but we still have a VERY, VERY long road ahead of us. Still working on everything hubby and I are averaging 15-17 hour work days. We've made some progress on the parents house but that's been a whole other story. lol My doctors also increased my meds and I am struggling with that; they make me so sick. I don't know how that is good for you. lol On top of this I broke my foot!! So it's been pretty wild for hubby and I.

Cabinets installed in the kitchen.

Apparently we haven't taken a full on picture of the kitchen cabinets since we got the crown molding on them. lol Still have to install black splash.

Then we moved onto the master bathroom.

Started ripping the sheet rock and wallpaper out.

Gutted master bathroom. This took us a 12 hour day because they used glue and so many nails it was insane.

All sheet rocked!

Tile installed. The next day when we went over some of the tile didn't settle right so it had to ripped back up and reset. (roll my eyes)

This is the bathroom vanity hubby and I made for my parents. Turned out pretty cool but wow it was a nightmare to get in. The walls apparently are crooked by 1/2" no less so it wouldn't fit in the front of the opening for the vanity. Dh only measured the opening in the back. Yep he learned his lesson and apparently I can't leave him unsupervised. hahaha Hubby and I had to tear the vanity apart to trim it down after building it for 2 weeks. He was on my list! lol

Master shower done and boy was this thing a nightmare and pain. I won't bore you with the details but I almost went on strike over this shower 4 months working on that stupid thing. lol We just have to finish sealing it up, install the toilet and put the washer/dryer unit back in this room will be done!

Utility room tile installed. Still have to trim out this room but where getting there.

July 4th we got a surprise we had a baby born early. Her poor lungs weren't developed so she was a bottle baby. She had to be feed 3 times a day to start out with.

Few weeks later and she decided she was so done doing the bottle thing. lol Never had that happen before. She's pretty cute and doing good.

That's what's been happening for July and good part of August, besides our regular work.

Customer Update

Sorry I still haven't gotten catalogs out to those that qualified. I am waiting on a couple of things to arrive to make up for being late with them. Cross your fingers next week they go out sometime!

I am also in the process of packaging up all the prizes from my 25 Days of Christmas Giveaway. I will be contacting the people that won prizes over the next few days.

Thanks for the good thoughts, emails, cards, phone calls, prayers and the continued support of my businesses! I do appreciate it a lot!! I feel blessed to have such great friends and customers.

You need one of those cards that says JUST BREATHE! Thoughts, prayers, and well wishes coming your way!

Healing thoughts for Dad, poor guy, sounds like he's been through a lot. And I can't believe how much remodling you've done on your parents house! That really is a lot of work! Hope your meds get along with you as well.

Oh my gosh, Holly! How do you keep up? Best wishes for your father's recovery and for life to get a bit easier for you.

Holly, I am a bit behind in my blurfing, and I just read this post. Oh, my! Girl, you and your family are in need of some prayer! I pray, and I will be praying for things that you posted. I do hope that you are taking care of yourself.

Chris: Yes I do! lol Thank you for the prayers!

Pam: Thanks!

Lisa : Some days I wonder that myself. lol

Marla: Thank you for the prayers.
