My husband’s very favorite saying is, “Nothing is impossible if you don’t have to do it yourself.
I LOVE that saying, MOST of the time. Not so much when he uses it on, of all people, ME! When I ask him to do some simple thing around the house, like build an arbor over most of the deck, turn the walk-in attic into a bedroom or dig a basement under our slab home (all projects I consider one day jobs), I would rather see results than be stymied by the aforementioned saying, delivered, by the way, in what I consider a slightly condescending tone. (He even insists putting a basement under a slab is not possible! I use another saying at that point – Where There’s a Will There’s a Way.)
So, Honey, if your reading this (surely you are!), snap to, and get busy on those projects and cut out the rhetoric.
By the way, did I mention what MY favorite saying is? “If Mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.”
