Hi/Hiding Out
[Return to Topics]

Just thought I would pop in and say hi real quick before I go back to hiding out. G is trying to install an a/c in the new horse trailer. He throws enough fits when he is working on a project he has experience with but this being something new to him I took to hiding out today. After he got the a/c out of the box this morning I knew it was going to be a long day. And of course as always he couldn't find any of the tools and stuff he needs because he never puts them back and I always get questioned as to where they are so I have to walk around here looking for tools that half of them I don't even know what they are. But its always my fault he can't find them. You would think I was quite the busy carpenter around here that just can't put the tools up. HA! I never touch the tools but I Am suppose to know what and where each one is that he can't seem to keep up with. And he has spent a fortune on measuring tapes but can never seem to find one. uh oh!! Just heard a boom. Not sure if it was thunder or a G fit. I better take cover. byeee.....

Fits are common here, often i wake up and swear a bit just to get it over with lol. I have a few fits here working on customers projects if they change plans of set unreasonable goals.
I had my hand in a tight spot on a cattle trailer and my customer thought letting the floor jack down would help and i got my hand mashed good in the process. Then when i got them to understand that i needed the jack up to get loose i bumped my head on a sharp corner. And trying to pull myself up i put my hand in a pile of recently deposited cow manure. But what took the cake is this fella to,ld me Looks like you hae a case of the mondays and horse laughed me. I lost it ticcked dad off that i propelled a 1 3/4 wrench out the back shop door and hit a goat unintentionally. I then told the customer to leave and i closed down for the day went to the lake. If i let it get to me too much i lose the joy of my work and burn out.

Ladies, it's in the male gene pool. Honest. Something to do with testosteroneousmusthavious tool syndrome, but with wifemusttakecareous side effects.

My wife always knows where my tools are, because I usually leave them on the kitchen table.

I wish we had a kitchen table for him to leave them on. He11 I wish we had a kitchen. lol. We are living in the "house" as we build it. Been this way for a few years now. Too many different projects going on at once. Thats one reason he can't find his tools. Can't remember what project he worked on last. lol.

My husband always asks me where tools and what not are too. He says he thinks I have a built in homing device, since I can usually find them. Reason I can find them is I see them laying around somewhere they are not supposed to be and I make note of it but don't move them, since he's the one that put 'em there in the first place. I won't tell you where he thinks my homing device is...;)

Thats G's reasoning behind why he asks me where everything is. I do see tools laying around but I don't really pay too much attention to what is where and even if I do its so long before he asks I done forgot where I saw it. lol.
