Complicated Projects

My husband is one of those guys that can't do a simple project. Oh no. If it's too simple he'll turn it into this major deal.

He should have been an architect or interior designer. He can make any room look great.

Take our kitchen tile, for instance. Another man would have had it tiled by now, but not my husband. He got on the computer and using Freehand software has designed an elaborate creation that I wouldn't have tackled. It kind of reminds me of my quilting, only with tiles.

It will be beautiful.

You have to have patience to be married to my husband. If you're in a hurry, you might as well forget it.

He did the same thing on our front bathroom. He took out the furdown, switched the placement of the bathtub and toilet (with a concrete slab, no less), replaced the bathtub with a jacuzzi and added a niche in the wall. We had a cupboard above the toilet, that you knocked your head on; he took that out and replaced the wide cabinet, that held the sink, with a pedestal sink. The cabinet was replaced with a tower cabinet beside the toilet instead of above it.

I know it's hard to picture what it looks like. I wish I had before and after pictures. You would be amazed.

At first, his ideas worried me. I didn't think many of them were possible, but he soon proved me wrong.

Sometimes dreamers see possibilities where others do not. :o)
