We have electricity!!!!

We have switches - and plates!  
So exciting to see more changes happening in the basement.  
We are truly blessed by friendships and people with skills that are different from ours!

Soon to be future home office of MaryKay!  
You can almost imagine lots of great things coming out of this room... maybe even that beautiful Malibu!
Even a light in the bathroom closet - I'm so spoiled. :-)
more lights in the ceiling
Vents look like they've been there for forever!
Jimmy Hertel would have been impressed with the workmanship that this man did for us!  
Thanks Jaime!

that's all for now... stay tuned for more updates!

Reading Room

So, as you look to the left, the bathroom door is open.
Just beside the door is the office chair, for now.
This 4' wall is the outside edge of the future reading room...
the 'spare oom' if we have company, which will be curtained off for privacy.

Though it is storing all kinds of miscenally at the present.
Soon it will be a quiet place for reading and enjoying good conversation.

Measure twice, cut once!

The future home office of MaryKay in the Curry house!

... storage space - and what we thought would be the trickiest wall to build -
amazingly the easiest!
We'll take hidden blessings!

Step one - Clean it out...

As with any project I've ever known, a person needs to make a mess before the clean up can begin!
We have been successful!

Thrilled to be back to school...

One quick picture to document the day...
... all 3 in school all day ...
a day longed for, dreaded, and somehow celebrated
all at the same time!
