when life gives you lemons...or a husband too busy to help around the house
Wednesday, May 22, 2013
The good thing about my husband, his work ethic. The bad thing about my husband, his work ethic. Customers come first,work comes first always. So what suffers is the house. He has grand plans like oh I'm welding the lawn mover this week or I can put shelves in there for you. Or the bigger picture the 65 mustang that needed a head gasket 7 years ago, the pond he started digging in the front yard 9 years ago. Get the picture?
So he started trimming the trees that were starting to take over the clothes line last fall. One tree cut down and still laying in the path of the clothesline. Now the trees are totally overgrown and the grass/weeds are over a foot tall. The dogs barely go outside anymore. He accidentaly drove the riding mower into the lake. He got it out but in two months it hasn't been fixed. It's in pieces on the driveway. So I was hanging towels and sheets over the fence and he thought it looked tacky. Hmm the huge hole in my front yard full of weeds is OK but clean linens are tacky. So here's my solution a new clothes drying rack on wheels for inside or out.
This is one cool invention! It hasn't been full yet with two loads each day I've used it. It has cool arms that hangers go on so your clothes are ready for the closet! I just role the unit to my bedroom door and empty it easily.
Next project laundry room. The old bakers rack and junk everywhere and no where for dirty clothes and can barely access the washer and dryer. I began deconstructing and constructing. Here's what I have done so far
This is real cedar, smells amazing! I put it together in one hour by my self:-)
Last night we put together the second one and stacked on top.
Do you know he was still talking of building shelves after we were done? I also got a wire organiser for the back of the door.
So when I get tired of waiting for him I go to Amazon to find a solution! Now if they only had plumbers on amazon....
P.s. when hubby does make time he can fix anything and we generally work well together on projects. But more and more I'm on my own!
