hubbies & home repairs

Dh is changing the bearing in our AC.  Usually, I can tell how well his repairs are going based on his language & such.  Well, his body language says he's slightly annoyed, but so far his language is PG. . .  Hopefully, that's a good sign. 

 

Uh-oh!  Make that PG-13. :-(

My husband is a pretty good handyman around the house. I love it that if something goes wrong he can fix it.

Mine's usually pretty handy, as well.  If he can't fix it, he can @ least get us thru for a little longer.  :-)

I know what you mean, we had our refrigerator go out and he had it back working within 20 minutes.

LOL!  And I'm sorry at the same time.  My husband is the same way.  He gets 12 shades of angry while he is fixing things around the house, but when I try to "comfort" him, he yells at me (okay, not really yells) that I should just be glad that I have a man that can fix things around the house.  Which is true.  Sadly.  I am wonderfully glad that I have a man that can fix things around the house because ALOT of guys just can't anymore.  

So, I let the kids watch TV...loudly.  And I bring my husband a glass of water every once in a while.

 I am thankful he can fix things.  even if it means kicking the kids to the other end of the house for a little while.  And as he says, sometimes, the appliances or fixtures just need a good "talking to."  lol.

 When we had our big house when we were raising the 5 kids if something went wrong when Todd got off work he would either fix it if it was a reasonably smaller or not too  time consuming of a job (he worked a lot of hours so didn't have lots of extra time) or on occasion one of our teens would even fix somethings they have a natural knack for some of that (didnt get that from me!)

Now that our kids are grown up we sold the house (too big too much maintenance and work and in too small of a boring town) We moved into an awesome apt complex so now our exceptional maintenance team does all the yard work and cleans the halls and does all the maintenance big or small Todd doesnt have to give it a second thought now even if he knows how to fix it,  he doesnt have to bother with it, we just let our team know and they  get here fast and friendly and do a great job every time. We love it and really appreciate it. Todd can just relax and enjoy his time at home when off work now no matter what might have gone wrong : )

PS like OP said I could always tell if Todd's fix it project was going good or bad from his tone of voice and langauge too - lol glad he doesnt have to stress over it anymore haha

LOL I also judge the success of a project based on the language he's using.  If the kids have to leave the room we all know it's not going well.

If I can't fix it myself I usually call mine or dh's dad. Most things can't wait a month to get fixed.
