My incredibly adorable husband has tackled the front porch as my mother's day present.

And also had time to surprise me with the most beautiful arrangement of flowers.

I am so much happier with the porch in this state: a work in progress with limitless potential versus a crack-den-look-alike and I don't miss the artificial turf in the slightest! We have a man coming tomorrow to do some cement work, some parging so that Paul can begin rebuilding the porch this Friday, once the wood arrives.

It has been an emotionally exhausting day. The hospital called to say that something has been found on my MRI and I need to go back next week for an ultrasound. My hope for a year without surgery seems to be fading fast.

Paul did a great job of pulling the old porch apart. Though I am sure you are sorry he did not just dial 1-416-contractor. :)

Whoa... you've got yourself one phenomenal hubby!!! (I'm sure you know this ;) Great for him and you, and yes, it being in this state is far more incentive to get it done. Sorry to hear about the MRI results... I'm sending you my most powerful convalescent vibes.
