Today is John and my 18th Anniversary, I can truly say it gets better every year, I respect, admire him more every day. He's my best friendI've enjoyed this summer..Lots of mini vacations, house remodel, beach volleyball, relaxing days at home. The little girls and I went to Bishop to attend a friends funeral, she passed away from a brain aneurism at the age of 35. Leaving behind a young son. Shocking to say the least….. Was great to see friends and family, coming from a small town, you know many people, someone is always passing, while others are being born. That's life, hard to understand, especially when people pass so young, in their prime.
Our house exterior remodel is going great, we just finished up with a crew of two, who came to work daily three weeks in a row! I found them working on another job, we got so lucky, blessed with Dan. He was so consistent, and absolutely amazing. We had no problems, the budget was the budget, nothing "came up". Would hire him back in a heart beat. Now we have stucco, railing, and fences to do then front will be done. Although we do love projects, I think we as well as the kids are ready for somethings to be DONE!
Sage has been playing volleyball almost weekly, we've had many, many beach days because of this, which I love, gets me out of the house. Little John has a new job washing windows, not just any windows, mansions!! He was asked to stay on at one amazing house as a waiter (when they entertain), also help clean out a attic! Well see how that goes!! John is working harder than ever, such a amazing provider, couldn't ask for a better husband. Chloe and Sadie are enjoying the endless swim sessions, playdates. So far Chloe learned to ride her bike, do the monkey bars, swim under water. Very eventful! Sadie is reading chapter books, mind craft, any craft…. I haven't had any time to myself this summer usually I try to have girls go to Bishop for a week, hasn't happened yet hopeful in a week or so… MOM and DAD you reading this?!!?! Alright that's all I got. Love Shirley
The progress so far, we hated the curb appeal (it had zero)! The roof line was pitched we wanted flat, there are two other houses next to us that are shaped the same. We wanted out!
The crew Every day at 7 a.m
Our doors, some don't "get" them, we adore them, still need to be stained and sealed, Picture doesn't do justice they are huge! Got to imagine pure white stucco, inside and out, to fully get it.
