The Basement Bathroom

Here we are.  Pictures before anything begins.

 This is what you see when you look right as you get to the bottom of the steps
 This is looking into the place the bathroom will be
 We had done a little work there but it stalled years ago.
 Somehow a double got in,, sorry,  I think there are more d at the end.  OOPS

The work begins, with framing

More of that
Plastic hung for pre insulation

See the new ceiling,, not bare studs

A busy weekend

The Myers arrived on Thursday night.  Friday morning Tonja had an interview for my job!!  It went well but she wont know until the end of this week if she gets my job when I retire.  I hope so.  It is the most wonderful place to work!!

Friday nite it was time to celebrate Emma's 21st birthday and Abbe's 12th. 
 The 3 mousketeers (Luke, Josiah and Andrew) await the cake
 Saturday it was up towards Brainerd for a Moteberg Family Reunion.  It was realized that not all got in the photo of those that were there.  But a GREAT bunch of relatives.
 Gil's siblings.  His twin brother Lyle, then Geri, JoAnn and Joyce (Fran and Myron are not in this picture)
 The 1st cousins  Susan, Will, Tonja, Lynn, Hillary, Melissa, Leah, Evan and Preston (there are a few that were not at the reunion) 
 Emma and Gpa Jim hangin out enjoying the day
 Braxton the B Boy and his mommy Kim
Braxton (Eric's littlest guy and my youngest grandson) thought he was the cat's meow sitting by himself in that little lawn chair.

A GREAT BIG THANKS to Geri, Mark and Lynn for inviting us all to their lake cabin for this wonderful time.

What can I say?  It is HOT.  But then all of the U.S. is hot.  At least in MN we have been having some rain.  This Friday, my daughter is coming to apply for my job.  Yep,, retirement isnt far away now.  Even if they dont hire her , I will be giving them a date when I will be stepping down to enjoy some time before I am not able to enjoy a few things we want to do anymore. 

One of these days I will get on here and post some pictures.  My husband and I have a new granddaughter.  Jim's son Jon had a baby girl 2 weeks ago.  She is such a tiny little thing and oh so sweet.

I just wanted people to know that I am still around, and will be doing more blogging, I promise.
