I have the best husband in the world

Sorry everyone. No new cards to post today. Why you ask? Well, let me tell you. It's all my husband's fault. :-)

For my birthday, he bought me a Jacuzzi tub. An extra long, extra wide, extra deep one with lots of jets and buttons. And for the past two weeks, he's been installing it. This is a weekend sort of gig as he's insanely busy at work with end-of-year stuff. So this weekend we went to pick out the faucet. He wanted to be artistic and have it come out from the wall. I however wanted it centered at the end of the tub. (We've talked about this engineer thing before, right?) The faucet will be at the end of the tub, BTW. ;-)

We went to Lowes and Home Depot and even went to a place called Ferguson's Plumbing. Did you know that people actually pay over a thousand dollars for a FAUCET???? Needless to say, the engineer in me could not allow that to happen and we ended up with a very nice $250 faucet from Lowes. So no card making on Saturday. But he did take me to my LSS where I nabbed the new SEI Christmas Mint DSP and won the free crop I mentioned yesterday.

Then today, I woke up and decided that I wanted a refrigerator in my studio. Well, in the pantry attached to my studio. Anyway, I have 4 kids at home including a 21 year old son in college. I pack lunches for the two in school. And inevitably the 21 year old eats ALL of the single serving stuff that I buy for lunches. I just can't afford to feed a human garbage disposal like my 21 yo convenience foods, KWIM? So I want someplace out of sight (and thus out of mind) for me to stash goodies that are for lunches, not for general consuption. My super patient, loving husband took me to Lowes (after taking me back-to-school shopping and out for breakfast) and bought me a brand new refrigerator. So again, no card making today. But still a productive day.

I just wanted to give a shout-out to the best husband in the world. He's supportive, encouraging, and good-looking to boot! THANKS HON!!!
