Today Aaron went back to work, which I think will feel like rest after this past week. The project is mostly done, with only the usual odds and ends to finish up and a lot of clean up to do. I might even be able to pretend to help with that....or I might just keep hiding out on the house with the new baby!

Our Biggest House Project Yet
September 10, 2010 will always be a memorable day for our family because it is the day our youngest daughter was born. It will also be memorable for another reason: 45 minutes after our daughter arrived (we had a home birth), the excavator who was scheduled to dig a trench along our foundation also arrived. So, our biggest house project yet (and possibly ever) got started with a real bang. Later in the day we got a celebratory fountain, when the "digger" hit an old, unmarked water line. That was only the first adventure in what would be a long week of digging, patching, strengthening the foundation, hauling gravel, adding a basement egress window, and refilling the hole. While I hid out in the house caring for the new baby, Aaron worked like a madman, trying to get everything done outside. When you have a tight budget and a tight timeline, resting is not an option!
