Life goes on

Life goes on, just a little bit more complicated. We were all scheduled to have our bedroom bathroom renovated or shall I say demoed. Oh, it will be beautiful, but what a job to move and clear everything out alone and move it upstairs. (I should be really skinny) (not)   Our bedroom is on the 1st floor, so now we are upstairs and poor Hb has to go up at night and down in the morning on a cane. Not ideal, but we have had this in the works  "life does go on".
This master bathroom was here when we moved in 6 years ago and we have wanted to redo it ever since.  

                                                                    Old bathroom


Ta Da moment in about a month, or so.  Can't wait...... lots of banging and slamming and disrupting my daily routine.  But it will be worth it I'm sure  :  )

Snow is finally disappearing here in New England. If you look hard you can see some green and buds. Look hard.........

Not a pretty sight but it will be soon.............

This is a pretty sight though, all wrapped up to visit with grandchildren for Abby's "8th" birthday.
Time sure does go by fast. We will go to the end of her kids party and then visit, play and have a meal. I take all the time I can get with them. They are going to Disney for Easter so we won't be seeing them then.

                          From this

               To this beautiful girl

These are the two sweaters I made being used!  :  )

Anyone who has grandchildren knows the joy that they bring. My heart is so full when I am with them and I can't wait to see them tomorrow.

I hope everyone has a nice weekend planned or even a spontaneous adventure, walk, or relaxation. Thank you all so much for your kind comments for my husband, they helped in so many ways. Sorry if I haven't had a chance to comment this past week but time got away from me. I have missed a few I know.

Happy Spring, xoRobin

Me too,  xoJack


  1. It will be fab when it's done Robin. Many happy returns to your darling granddaughter and have fun celebrating. I so agree re the joy they bring and yes time rushes by, our Daisy Jane is 5 months old today ;0) x

  2. Oh Robin.. I'm jealous. I have wanted to rip our master bathroom to the studs and start over with it for literally decades! You're lucky your husbands goes along with remodeling, mine won't even discuss it. Have fun with your darling girls when you see them! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. I sympathise with you Robin re the banging and clattering and men in the house but it will be worth it in the end!
    So glad your snow is disappearing, you have had more than your fair share.
    Enjoy those lovely grandchildren of yours! :)

  4. Hello sweet Robin,

    I so feel for you after a looooong while demo-banging-men-moving-sorting-cleaning but believe me, it will all worth it in the end (just as Vivienne said before me!)! I am so sorry your Hb needs to climb with the cane, poor him. Thankfully it seem that outside it's getting summery (and not as slippery!) and green, finally!

    Wishing you a wonderful weekend, dear friend!


  5. Your bathroom/bedroom renovation is going to be fantastic. We will have to do our bathroom in a few years, the cabinets are really starting to show the wear and tear of the years. Have a wonderful time with your family and Happy * to your lovely little one.
    Hugs to you,

  6. Best of luck with the bathroom remodel. It will be nice to have everything fresh and new.

  7. Hey, hey, hey.....Spring has arrived in New England. Loved seeing your darling granddaughter in her sweater with her dolly sweater!
    Your bathroom will be gorgeous, I am sure!!! I could NOT live through a reno!!!

  8. Sorry to hear about your husband's fall. That ice can be tricky stuff. Wishing him a speedy recovery. My cousin just had her bathroom redone and it took way longer than she anticipated. Hope yours will be done on time. That's a lot of work. Your granddaughter is a cutie! Nice sweaters. Have a wonderful weekend. Tammy

  9. Ah, how exciting to have a new bathroom! I'm looking forward to seeing your finished result. I'm sure it will be much better than the recent black. It's an inconvenience worth having to get it done! I'm sorry about your hubbie having to climb up and down the stairs - I hope he recovers well soon!

  10. Oh you won't know yourselves when that brand spanking new bathroom is finished Robin, but I do hope the job doesn't drag on too much longer! Happy Birthday to Abby, what a sweet age, and good healing to your dear Hb - going up and down stairs on crutches is no joke I'm sure! Chin up and keep smiling! Joy xo

  11. Hello Robin, I hope the bathroom is finished soon. In the meantime, Enjoy some fresh spring weather. I am so happy to see our snow melting. Happy, Happy birthday to Abby. Time is flying....... Best wishes and continued healing to your husband.
