My Husband is a Super Hero

A few weeks ago we found out that our neighbors tree roots had grown into our sewer system. Rotor Rooter came out and diagnosed the problem and gave us a quote of about $2800.00 to fix the problem. Needless to say I was really discouraged. We decided to spend a few days at my moms house while we decided what to do. In the mean time Robbie started asking around and was encouraged that it was a project he could do himself. He started ripping the cement up out of our driveway to find the sewer line. After a few days of digging he found the root growing in at one of the seams and cut open the line to find a 4 foot root growing down the line. My husband is somewhat of a clean freak (I love you Robbie, but you are) so dealing with sewer line was not his idea of a good time. He got everything all cleaned out and the line replaced and now it is working like new. I am so impressed that he was able to complete a project like this with no prior plumbing experience, and while working on it only in his spare time. His hard work saved us about $2600.00. I am so lucky to have a husband that is such a hard worker. He is truly my super hero.

I'm spending the weekend in Nashville, and as we were driving around, we passed a Food Lion grocery store. . . and it made me think of Robbie. Not completely sure why. I just sort of vaguely remember a minor obsession with Food Lion in Ms. O's junior English class.

Anyway. . . any new pictures to share?
