Happy and sooooo tired Sunday!

This is the best image I could find to illustrate how my mom feels right now...
And I am being very nice because she looks like cr... well.... you know how...

First of all.... once again.... please forgive us for not visiting you this weekend. But... you know my mom right? Once she gets an idea.... and that idea is related on how she is so tired today.

Remember I told you about her mother's present for my grandma? Well... she finished it yesterday night.

Before...

Between...

After...


Ta-Da!

Yes. My idiot mom built the roof for the cars!
Our house has no garage. The space to park them is weird.
My grandma contacted 5 companies to build it. None of them wanted to do it!
And you imagine how it feels to get into your car, at 2pm, having 110 degrees??
Oh-boy! It is like an oven.
Sooooo.... my mom said.... "Why not"? And there she goes...

I heard lots of HBO words when she was using the cutting and the welding machines. It was an interesting experience.


She got help from a friend specially to hold up the poles. Then she painted the frame and then she put the acrylic sheets.
Around 10pm... it was finished!
And my grandma is super happy with her present!

And here I am today morning admiring her job!

My mom feels so proud of her work... but she promised to herself that NEVER again she will do something like this!
Every inch of her body hurts right now!
She says this is the end of her DIY era!
Hmmm.... I hope so... but I know her!

Tomorrow we will back to normal.


I hope you all had a great weekend!

Lorenza, your Mom is amazing - what a difficult task she undertook AND accomplished!!! Kudos to Mom. Before you know it, she will be building all of you a new home.

Have a great week and tell Mom to take some time to relax.

OMD!!!! We want to hire your Mom! That is awesome work! Our Mom has been talking about growing grass in our yard this year (the yard has been sorely neglected for AGES), and so far she's only managed to 'prep' about half the lawn, and she's been working on it for a week! Now go take care of your Mom - she's been working super hard, and definitely needs some of the special Doxie love! ;-)

sprinkles said...

That's amazing, there's no way I would even think of starting something like that on my own!

You're really going to appreciate having that. I have a garage for my car and I love it! It's so nice to keep the car cool during the hot summer months.

I bet it'll help keep some of the snow off in the winter too.

Elyse and Riley said...

Your mom is one super talented lady!! We can't believe she did all that basically by herself! I have a few projects around here that need to be done........hmm....... :)

Happy Monday!

Hi, Lorenza -

Your Mom did that all by herself?!? That is a LOT of work. Mama and Aunt Donna went to help Grandpa and Grandma Joan clean up their house this weekend. That was a lot of work too.
