Alternate title: Reasons why my husband and family rock my socks off
As I was living it up in Washington, D.C., I left my husband at home to care for the pugs, work and do other grown-up things. I’m thoughtful in that way. He doesn’t like to travel anyway, so I was really doing him a favor.
While it would have been completely reasonable for him to do fun things and blow off all obligations while I was away, I came home to this.
That’s a garage, folks.
I married a good man. Some ladies hope for flowers. I love myself a good slab of concrete.
Ryan and my awesome dad rallied together a force, poured the slab and framed the walls while I was gone. Ryan didn’t tell me how far they’d gotten to surprise me. (My mom took pictures for blogging purposes.)
This was a great surprise.
Within five days, the roof trusses were up. At this rate, I should be parking in it by Sunday. 😉
Although I’m beginning to wonder if Ryan was actually working or if he just spent his time on the cell phone while Kyle worked. (I kid.)
In other house news, I came home from D.C. with a nasty cold. So, since I’ve gotten home, I’ve been supervising and medicating myself.
Oh yeah, and I did use the air nailer.
I deserve some sort of a medal for all my hard work. 😉
It was a good week at NewlyWoodwards. I had to do nothing and somehow still got a garage out of the deal. Try not to be too jealous.
Love my garage-makers. Thanks, Ryan, dad, Kyle and all!
