Honey Do's

At my house it takes an act of God and Congress to get my husband to do any "Honey Do's", so I feel I need to give him some credit when he actually does any......and not just here in Blog Land. I need to be a bit more diligent to tell him I appreciate his help when he dishes it out.

Yesterday he decided to stay home and work around the house, much to my relief. He had been under the house and decided to wrap some of the hot water pipes so he, or anyone else (like my boys) doesn't get burned by them when I am running hot water. While he was there he figured he would do something I have been asking him to do for more than a year, put outlets on the exterior of the house. We need them for our Christmas lights as well as the light that is in our chicken coop. I have to say that the primary reason he did this is because he was tired of the "redneck, hillbilly" appearance of the
extension cord running across the patio and into our back door. Well if that is all it takes to get him to do something for me maybe I should start a bit of sabotage..........heee, heee, heee. No really, I do appreciate his efforts, however I would love for him to put me and some of my "Honey Do" priorities as high as he puts his customers jobs and their priorities. Yay for me I have two outlets for outdoor electrical needs, one on each side of the house. Good job Jeff and thank you.

Now the big question is will he get to read your thanks or shall you print out a copy and lay it on his pillow? Now all we need is the fence and lawn...

Hmmm, I think you could totally take advantage of this! Maybe you should start wearing a robe and barefeet all day with your hair in curlers and a baby on your hip. Who knows you might just get a new wardrobe out of it!

Kudos to your hubby!

I have outlet envy. We have not a single outlet on the outside of our home, which we have been remodeling since moving in some 7 years ago... Those of us still without are giving your hubby a round of applause today!

Seriously....our hubbies are too much alike. His honey-do list has been sitting there forever....
