Two exciting things are happening here this weekend.
The deck project began! It actually started yesterday. By the end of the day the great people at Blue Moon Construction had the basic framing almost complete. Without this top-notch company, this deck would not be possible. The project will be built in two phases. The current one is the main portion of the deck. Then, without a break, the next phase begins. This is the one that will provide access from the patio/driveway with ramping. It will level-off and provide a platform for the hot tub so that we can begin using it for Ryan once we raise enough money to buy the lift.
Note: As of this morning, $2,655 has been donated to purchase the lift (goal is $4,500). If you wish to make a donation, it’s easy. Just click on the “Donate” button under the One-time Online Donation in the upper-right sidebar of this page.
It’s possible that this all could be wrapped-up late next week. Here’s hoping for sunny days!
Visiting Kari at WVU
Later today I am taking off to Morgantown, WV to visit my daughter for the weekend at West Virginia University. I can’t wait to see her! We were given suite tickets to the football game tomorrow by a person who has been so generous to us. So, I suspect we’ll be up early enough (for the noon kickoff) to get in some serious tailgating before heading into the stadium.
I love that Kari and I have such a wonderful relationship. We always have such an incredibly fun time when we’re together. I love that she now considers me her friend, as well as her dad. I just couldn’t be any better than that!
