Oh, this has got to be a quick post because Sweet Man is gone right now to get a hair cut. The kids are on the mountain with their Mom at the snow play area. The dogs are sunning themselves on the back porch cuz it's cold out there. And..............I am alone, well except for the damnable cat who is cleaning himself. lickalickalicka.
Sweet Man is of the species: testosterone impario, genus: I put it off as long as I can. I know there are some of you out there (and I hate you to pieces) who have husbands who just do the things that need to be done around the house and just do it. Mine, not so much. I should have had a wedding shower prior to marrying SM and I could have asked for all manner of motivation tools (besides my drill sergeant voice, which is also known as my school teacher voice). You know like a whip and chair, thumb screws, hot seat. This man is...........well shhhhhhhh lazy, forgetful and can procrastinate better than anyone I know.
Now when it comes to work, oh sweet heavens above, don't stand in his way cuz he's all about getting the job done. He is such a Nervous Nelly not wanting to be late, or not getting something done just right, or goodness knows he couldn't put something off at work. But at home.....duh duh duh.
At our first house, we had a sink in the laundry room that for the entire 9 years we lived there didn't work. He didn't get around to fixing it until we put the house on the market. They got a working sink!!!!! At our last house, he put in counter tops in the kitchen but never caulked along the back up next to the wall, until we put it on the market to sell it. The new owner had a very nice kitchen when we left. We almost killed each other trying to put up crown molding. It's one of those inside, outside, upside down thinking kinda things anyway but just like putting up wall paper with a spouse, should be against the law. Well it is in all the states that start with E.
He is a wonderful husband, makes me laugh (sometimes because otherwise I'd be slitting his cute little throat), is a terrific father, grandfather, provider and is my best friend but hell's bells ya'll.....ya gotta slap him to get his attention when you ask him to do stuff at home. And if I say, "oh, I'll get someone hired to do it". He always says, oh that's gonna cost alot and I can do it myself. Yes, but will I get to enjoy it or will the new owners?????????
Just saying.............gotta go and have some fun on my own. Bye lovelies.
