When I mentioned that Rob was hardworking I should have elaborated: he works as the executive director for a non-profit foundation, while still servicing his investment clients from his former career. He also serves on the board of directors for a non-profit that ministers to special needs adults.
As if that wasn't enough to keep him busy - he's been very diligent on finishing projects around the house!
Exhibit A: my brand new dishwasher! I cannot believe how amazing this appliance is - my dishes come out clean. I know that's what a dishwasher is supposed to do, but my previous one was pretty crappy. Rob and Josh stayed up until 11:00 pm last Friday night, installing it for me!
|ps - these dishes are still dirty, but you get the idea I hope!|
Our master bathroom started it's life as a pink explosion. Because the house was built in 1955, the colors were a little, shall we say, different - apparently pink was the rage. Rob has totally redone the bathroom and hopes to be finished by Sunday evening!
I should have taken before pictures when the bathroom was pink - but here are some "before" shots from this morning.
|the sink - you can see the wall color will be turquoise|

We're actually leaving for our cabin in about an hour. I feel like it's important that we all spend some time together - without the distractions of work, TV, telephone, computer, soccer, etc. We're planning to attend a little farm festival tomorrow with the kids, have some campfires, hike a bit, and come back refreshed on Sunday morning. The leaves are starting to change and the air temperature is in the mid-70's. It should be a perfect weekend - and well-deserved! The kids and Rob have been working hard and I can't wait to see them all relax.
Have a great weekend everyone - I'll share pictures of the finished bathroom on Monday morning!
