Get Yourself a Handyman

October 7, 2008

I’m very grateful to be able to say that Mr. Foreverloyal is handy around the house.  He  has taken apart and fixed a garbage disposal, a washing machine (turns out there was a bobby pin in it, don’t know how that got in there), and built a loft in our garage so that we could have more storage.

It saves alot of money, but nevermind that.  There is something really appealing about a guy breaking out a circular saw, drill and level and building a structure from scratch.  It’s almost primal, makes a woman feel like her man is a manly man!

It was also so cute to see #1 son imitating  his dad.  While Mr. Foreverloyal was building, his oldest son was in a corner of the garage with his toy circular saw, pretending to cut a scrap piece of 2×4.  It’s good to know that insha’allah, my sons too will grow up and be able to build and fix things.

He’s got plans to build a small retaining wall in the backyard and rip out a small dead evergreen in the front.  Me, I need to order the tulips and pick up some mulch.  Every great handyman needs an assistant to help with the details.

    My opinions on relationships has changed so much. I’m very independent and in the past, that independence caused me to feel and act like I could do everything on my own. While I can do most things on my own, I realize that I do like the idea of having a take charge man. I would love to meet someone who was loving, smart and handy with a circular saw!

    LoL . . . Foreverloyal! Oh, I completely agree. Doesn’t it just melt your heart when your children imitate their daddy? I can’t think of many other things that I have seen/experienced in my life that give me so much joy and let me know just how blessed I am.

    And you’re right, every great handyman needs a great assistant (I’m great at ordering things and I do a mean job of weeding!)

    Oh, thanks for stopping by my blog!!! (((smiles)))
