OK...I'm trying not to be melodramatic here...but I'm nearly faint!!!
Our old den window was finally removed yesterday and what I've affectionately :( called the DEMON WINDOW has been installed in it's place!!!
 I'm totally drunk with JOY!
 I feel like I've been yapping about it for the longest time and now it's done!   

(Out Comes the Old!)

Unless you have a Do-It-Yourself-er hubby like I do you can't possibly understand how incredible it was to have two hired guys come out and actually do the work to install this window.  My Mr.AGPMan hires NOTHING done!  I mean NOTHING!  But...given all the trouble we've had getting a non-damaged-window delivered to us he was more than happy to have someone else do the labor for him!  Besides, with work, school and studying he just didn't have the time to devote to finishing the job himself!
(In Goes the New!)

I think the two installers thought I was NUTS for taking so many pictures of them (I told them I like to scrapbook and "stuff"!) :) :) :)  They did an AWESOME JOB!

Next thing on our redo list you ask??

Aside from hiring a brick mason to come out and brick up our old backdoor we have concrete work that needs to be done and several more windows to install!

See the window at the top right in the photo above?  It's next on the list!  I would LOVE to have had them all done at once, but I'm a pay-as-you-go kind of gal!  I hate window mail (tee hee)!

And there you have  it!  One BORING POST for a glorious Tuesday! 

Hope your day is FAB!

Love to you...

The window looks so fresh and pretty! So sorry you had to go through all that mess. Steam would have been coming from my ears and I probably would have demanded a perfect window be delivered on horseback! We don't hire anyone to do anything either, but sometimes I think it would be nice.

I know you will enjoy your beautiful new window. So nice you can do all these upgrades on your home. I need many. Lovely home.

What's wrong with window mail? Around here, we call it "job security!" ;o)

Seriously, the new window looks beautiful. Such a pretty house you have!

Oh how wonderful that you finally got this window replaced:) I know that it has been troubling you! It looks gorgeous!

I took lots of pictures last year when my house was painted! The painter turned around one time while I was snapping pictures and said "wait, I'll smile" and he did! It was quite funny!

Have a blessed day my friend, HUGS!

Not boring at all...so glad it went smoothly. My husband enjoys now having others do the hard work. The yard is one example of this...he loves that they take all the clippings AWAY!
Enjoy that window....looking good!!

Woopee, so happy for you to have your new window .....and proud of your Mr AGP man for letting (paying) someone else to do the job.
Looks great!

Boring--nope. Celebrating with you!♥♫

Enjoy your new window because you put up with a lot of frustration just getting it never mind putting it in. Good idea for them to do it just in case.

I really enjoy your blog and all your pretty things you make.

The window is fabulous. Joe is a lot of things but handy he is not so i always have to hire out for any work around the house. Thank God I am the carpenter's daughter because I do what I can.....

Rebecca Suzanne--

I never find your posts boring. I eagerly look forward to your inspirational thoughts and your creative ability-- to take nothing and make something beautiful out of it.

I am reminded of a favorite Scripture of mine (Proverbs 31:10-31). It mirrors your life and I am so proud of you.

"Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies...

Her husband trusts her...She works willingly with her hands...She is like a merchant...Her merchandise is good...Her hands are not idle...
Her children call her blessed and her husband praises her...A woman that(loves)the Lord shall be praised...She speaks words of wisdom and kindness...Many DAUGHTERS have done virtuously, but THOU (dear daughter)excellest them all..."

I know your joy. I know your pain. Thank you for sharing your life with us. You are a BLESSING.

With much love-- Mom
