Hubby vs Hedgezilla

October 6, 2015 § Leave a comment

I believe a good test of any marriage is a major DIY home renovation project. No matter how much they agree on the end result, getting there often involves two different people with VERY different ideas as to how.

 

Case in point…meet Hedgezilla

Hedgezilla

Hubby: It’s got to go…it’s growing into the eaves and pushing on the roof.

Me: I agree. Let’s call someone.

A WEEK LATER:

Me: Did you call someone about the hedge?

Hubby: Oh yeah, I called BUDDY. He’s going to lend me his Dad’s chainsaw.

Me: (FACEPALM)

Hubby: But for now, I have this…

Me: A handsaw? (Le Sigh)

HOURS LATER: BUDDY with chainsaw showed up and in no time a knife fight become a battle of the electric sword.

Me: You’re not even wearing protective eye wear!  Well don’t blame me if you get a chunk of wood in your eye and go blind.

All told this story actually spanned two days, I condensed it. The rest is not important. Hubby won the battle and didn’t lose any eyes.

He says it’s a combination of determination and will. I say it’s a combination of arrogance and luck. Either way, we got a big chunk of our house back. I can’t wait until it’s all finished and comes together.
