    Default December delights!

    My wife wanted a Christmas tree in every room of the house but I said nah that's overkill, so we compromised and now there is a Christmas tree in every room.

    Ain't that the gospel truth! Compromise.

    I'm in the middle of a kitchen remodel. Stayed home yesterday to received delivery of the new cabinets. Didn't do a thing watching for the truck so I wouldn't miss it. Supposed to arrive around 2. About 12:30 I get a text from wife wanting to know how they look? Told her ain't seen them yet.
    Few minutes later she text back, nobody was home so they left!!!!!!! Now can't deliver till next Thursday!
    Back to sleeping with a steel garbage can over my head so she can't access my throat while I try to sleep......

    I told her wait till after new years, I told her not to tear out the old until the new are on site. I told her I can't do it we'll need help, I'm a derelict.
    So all the old (except the sink base and dishwasher) are tore out.

    Guess we compromised.

    Remember a home remodel is one of the 5 top leading causes of divorce. I used to be a contractor, I know this to be true.

    It must be a woman thing. We used to move a lot and consistently, the kitchen got packed up first, a couple weeks before the move. No biggie though, still happy after 51 years and I learned not to sweat the small stuff and whatever she wants is small stuff.

    after 45 years I've finally learned "don't sweat the small stuff, and don't pet the sweaty stuff" ..... it's paid off (I think) ....
