I'm diggin' it...

October 8, 2007
I was told on Saturday by hubby, much to my surprise, that WE are supposed to dig the area for the foundation. Hmmm-I thought the reason we hired a contractor was for HIM to do all of this. This needed to be done before anything else could take place so I agreed in order to get the project going. Sunday was out due to prior obligations and church. Greg, I mean Gary, had to work on Monday. Darryl also had to work on Monday. Guess who was left? Me! So, Monday afternoon I began to dig out the area that Darryl instructed me to dig. He told me to remove the top layer of all the organic materials. I figured there had to be more to it so I was determined to get it ALL done. When my arms and shoulders started to get weak from digging out the dirt and hauling it to the back yard I would take a break and cut a section of lawn. I managed to completely cut both our yard as well as the yard next door. Finally, I had managed to dig out a 6’x8’ section of dirt about 8 inches deep. Wow, was I sore! Wouldn’t it be nice to soak in a tub right about now? Oh that’s right, I don’t have a tub yet! That’s why I am digging a 6’x8’ hole in the side of my yard-for the addition to my closet size bathroom to allow for a tub to soak my sore muscles and to help me relax!!! Does anyone else see the irony in this?

Of course, once Darryl returned home from work he informed me that I only needed to remove the outside edges and top layer of dirt, not the entire area.

    Beautiful bathroom you have now!


  2. Oh Kim,

    You have me laughing so!!!! Bless your heart! I can just imagine you digging all of that dirt, and finding out there was no need to dig so much of it, and no bathtub (yet) to soak away those sore muscles. I am enjoying this so much!

    Love, Paula
