Sawdust and Scraps Remain at the End of the Day in a Carpenter's Shop by Joel Sartore
Sawdust and Scraps Remain at the End of the Day in a Carpenter's Shop

we were doing a major remodeling job on our home
(both bathrooms and the kitchen)

and just before it was finished (July 4th to be exact)
my husband developed a health situation that required surgery.

He had surgery on July 16th.

He is now on the road to recovery..
Has a little ways to go..but definitely on the mend...

The lady I job/share with is on vacation this coming week...
so I will be working every day (10 Hour days)

Therefore, I will still be playing catch up with my blog for another week or so..

than all should be back to normal.

I've missed coming by your little place here recently-- just came by to catch up and was sorry to hear about your husband! We will pray for him as he recovers, and for you as you push through the upcoming long work days!

Love to you!

Oh, I'm sorry to hear about your husband's surgery. I'll be praying for him to have a complete and great recovery.
Busy you are with your remodeling.
Don't work too hard.

Dawn said...

My goodness! That was not the best timing, was it? I'm glad he's doing okay. Remodeling is bad enough without the extra stress added in! We're going to be doing our kitchen soon - not looking forward to it!

Oh,it was not good to hear about your husbands surgery.
But it was good to hear that he is getting better.
I hope he'll be healthy again.
It is good to get help when it is needed.
And I hope all that work not will be too much to manage.

Have a blessed Sunday!

Well, we are still working on the renovations to the upstairs apartment. It is a lot of work. I'm glad you were able to get yours done before your husband had his surgery.

You have a lot on your plate and I know you must be tired. Take care of yourself. 10 hour days are exhausting.


Tracy said...

I am so sorry to hear about your hubby! I will be saying a prayer for him that he recovers fast. Glad to hear though that you are back online. You have been missed! I will be gone this week, but when getting back will look forward to seeing how you and yours are doing.

Hugs and blessings sent your way.

I'm so sorry to hear about your husband having to have surgery! I'm praying for him and you as you work those long hours. May God give you the strength you need.

Barbara said...

Praying for your husband to recover quickly. Also praying for your situation. The remodeling sounds wonderful. I have things here that need to be done, a kitchen floor first! But, with my husband gone back to work full time, there is no telling when we will do that. He is so tired when he gets off and is working most Saturdays.

Missing you, Mimi! Glad your husband is on the mend. The Lord sustain you on those long days!
Sometimes blogging has to take third place!
