Why yes, that would be me. Not. My husband would like me to be his helper while he is rewiring our vanity area to the master bathroom. I know he needs the help so I'm climbing up and down the ladder, passing tools, pencils etc through the hole he created in the ceiling. I cannot complain...or let me amend that...I should not complain. He is doing this all for moi. When we discussed renovating the master bedroom/bath I asked if he could put a chandelier in the vanity area. Nothing ostentatious or fussy, the space isn't large enough to handle that and well I'm just not the fussy kind. I would like to say regal but then my family would be choking with laughter if I referred to myself as regal. However I wouldn't mind sparkly...Lily and I like sparkly.
Anyhow I offered to buy a Living Social coupon where he gets $200 worth of electrical work for $90, but that was more of a challenge than a gift to his male brain. I admit, I don't get it. But he is excellent and fastidious and other than his grumpiness when he doesn't understand my vision until we've had a few words he's THE MAN.
I think my parents and his parents are laughing in heaven at the sight of me screwing the light holder thingy in with the electric screwdriver. Pulling wires down from the attic at his direction on where to direct the wires. Simple, perhaps but then those are big wires going through tight spaces. And it ain't shake and bake but I helped!
So while he's up in the attic finishing whatever it is he has to do in the attic, I stole a moment or three to fill you in on how I spent my weekend. I think I might even get a lunch out of the deal! Oh no wait that means I need to leave you dear friends and go put that lunch together. While he is a man of many talents in the building field...he limits his kitchen talents to pancakes.
Oh and to put things in perspective on what a trooper I am...this is for my husband's benefit really as he does read my blog on urging....I did all this on my third round of meds as the junque is back. Grrrr....
Maybe we can turn the lights on soon. But don't hold your breath....
