Great Strides In the Recovery Program!

| November 15, 2009

Yikes!  I’ve been remiss in keeping you updated on the progress of the new shop.  We’ve been extremely fortunate with mostly good weather, and the work crew has been hard at it.  They’ve been working steadily for two weeks, with the exception of two days, and the progress has been phenomenal!  In this post, I’ll [...]

Finally! A Real Step To Recovery!

| November 2, 2009

After finishing out last week in complete silence and inaction, Darling Husbie stood ‘in’ his shop for the first time this evening!  We are so excited about the progress that was made today, although we were a little leery early on. The weekend was absolutely beautiful with the temperature reaching 63 degrees on Saturday and [...]

Yes, Sir! Yes, Sir! Three Bags Full!

| October 28, 2009

Well, okay, three trucks full.  We’re still making progress on getting Darling Husbie’s new shop built, though the challenges seem steadfast.  The biggest challenge?  My keeping my patience and grace throughout this process, hands down!  I’m so fortunate to have Husbie as my lead ~ and our work crew probably gives thanks they don’t have [...]

More Progress In the Recovery Program

| October 13, 2009

We took another step in the Recovery Program!  Yesterday, ‘the guys’ showed up to begin preparation for the shop pad to be poured ~ thankfully the snow we received on Saturday had melted and the ground had dried out somewhat. I don’t think Darling Husbie and I really knew what we were expecting, but I [...]

A Giant Leap to Recovery!

| September 30, 2009

Monday marked the beginning of the next step in the Recovery Program as a result of the shop ‘disastrophy.’  There seems to be a pattern in this whole recovery thing in that we wait, and wait, and wait…and hurry up and wait some more…then, without a moment’s notice ~ blammo!  Something big and exciting happens, [...]

The Recovery Program Begins

| August 23, 2009

Nearly three weeks ago, the shop recovery program began.  It’s much too early to say whether this is going to be a 12-Step Recovery Program, though.  It had taken this long to get the go-ahead from the insurance company to start sifting through the ash and rubble, and for my Darling Husbie to spend more [...]

Lost On a Hot Summer Night

| June 27, 2009

Imagine our horror when it was brought to our attention this was happening to Darling Husbie’s shop while we sat upstairs on the other end of the house completely unaware while eating our dinner. This was the scene at the farmstead Thursday evening about 8:00 p.m.  One of the many strange, ironic things about this [...]
