Hubs: What do you have planned for today?
Me: Well… I was hoping to finish my book for book club. Maybe do some stuff on the computer… putz in the yard… You?
Hubs: Well, I want to get that new kitchen sink faucet installed.
Hubs: You know, that one we’ve had in the box for several months now?
Hubs: I’m going to need your help.
Me: Um… sure.
Dear husband gathers his tools and all of the things he’ll need to complete the job (including the ancillary items he has purchased over the prior week), then puts together a handy-dandy platform so he can contort himself comfortably while under the sink.
I’m at the ready in case he needs me to hand him tools and parts… as I multitask on my iPad and read a few chapters of my book.
I am so grateful for my husband who not only has a lot of very handy tools, but knows how to use them. I’m also grateful that he dives into less-than-enjoyable projects that need to get done instead of putting them off like I tend to do. Because of him, we now have a new faucet that works beautifully… and no leaks!
