You know, with "stuff our wives do", and "marriage challenges" this is getting a little one sided.

And keep it clean, this is a family site lol.

My wife can find something we haven't used in 20 years in about 3 minutes. Quicker than google. Faster than a labrador.

And she has a really fancy hip pack that she always took on the river and camping. Whenever anyone said, "I wish we had...." you guessed it, it was in there. She was teased about being the first woman Dr. Who before there was a woman Dr. Who.

Over the last 20 years my wife has had many different plants that always die. She can never understand why and I ask her do you water them and put them in the sun. LOL she sais I watered them last week and they are sitting on the table in the living room.

With me out of town for work a lot and having no time to do much besides keep up the lawn and goats and landscaping duties my wife took over the reigns on the bathroom remodel. She is getting close. We were gonna build the the vanity drawers and doors to, but found a guy to do that for a good price. It was a complete gut job and minus the demolition, toilet install, and flooring it's pretty much been all her. Looking good! I set the sinks and faucets in just quick for a pictures 20220605_172338.jpg 20220605_172355.jpg 20220605_172403.jpg 20220605_172409.jpg .

Speaking of machetes, my wife bought a machete in Hell, Jamaica after seeing them wielded by the gardeners. The guy said, "Wot you goin' do wit dat girl?"

"Cut down my sunflowers and scare the neighbors."

Gorgeous! I suspect even our contractors would approve.

Her patience on the tile work was impressive. Nothing is square in our home and even the walls are wavy haha. She put it up and took it down in multiple places just to get it all flush. No way I would of had that kind of patience.
When we did our backsplash I told her “I’ll cut, you do the rest.”

Much better end result.
