Hubby just told me that I need to toughen up. Is this a joke or what?
Who me? Toughen up?
(Eyes rolling) trying to figure out just how I’m going to execute just that, Hmmm…
Perhaps I’ll show my teeth, suppose that’ll show someone I mean business?
No? Oh…oh, I got it!
How’s this for ya? Can you tell I mean business?
Oh I give, honey can you help?
That is truly how I felt today.
I met the electrician first thing this morning. See, he put this here board thingy up when I was out to the house back on June 10th.
And this was not what hubby ordered for our dining room chandelier to hang from. He asked for double braces which the builder indeed purchased. However the electrician just bypassed what my darlin’ asked for. (Not a good thing)
We had a little meeting with the builder last Friday and she said the brace would be put up not a problem. Well today the electrician went round and round with me saying what he put up there was just fine. But what he did not understand was that it was not going to be just fine with us. I tried people…I did and he just kept dancing around smoothing it over so I had to call hubby.
Hi honey, (and I told him the situation) and he said “let me talk to him”. Let me insert here that those words put me at complete and perfect peace. And just moments later I heard the electrician say “I’ll put the brace in for you sir.” Now why can’t I do that? Huh? When the electrician was finished with my hubby he passed the phone over to me and hubby said to me “I just need to toughen you up honey”.
It’s so nice leaving that part up to my husband. He has the best way of getting the job done without raising his voice or showing any sort of confrontation. He’s definitely gifted when dealing with people as his edges are polished grace with a strong support backing his views. That is just one of the many qualities I love about my guy.
I also had a little meeting with the flooring man and that went just peachy.
The windows and roof are finished
And here’s a peak around the back of the house.
Hubby got me out of another jam as usual. But the question is “how could I have gotten it done without having to call my Hubby”?
