Sometimes He Forgets....

Lets face it... Men forget things...
I am fortunate enough to have a son that was born the day after my birthday... There will be no forgetting.
Our anniversary falls on an odd date and very close to the anniversary of our first date so that even I tend to confuse.
But tonight, he forgot something very important.
He forgot that I am an absolute genius.
Okay, stop laughing.
(Seriously, Mom I know you are still chuckling...)

We are having our laundry room fixed...for good.
Today, someone is coming in to do the drywall.
Since we had to tear out the existing parts of the wall in preparation, we figured we would attempt to unclog the drain that had been slow for a couple of weeks now.
Adam struggled to get the pipes disconnected because it is a SUPER small space.
When he took a minute to run to Home Depot, I got to work.
I was able to disassemble the pipes and get all the drywall down before he got home.
I'm telling you I'm a genius!
So proud of my accomplishments, I stood back and admired my work.
Do you know what I saw?
The screwdriver that Adam accused me of losing.
We had to buy a whole new set to replace ONE screwdriver.
ONE screwdriver that he left on the stud behind the drywall that he put up!
Now, my laundry room looks like this...
But, at least it no longer looks like this....
(See Honey, I am being positive just for you!)

Did you do the "I told you so" dance? Because I love that dance.

Too funny. I love that you just jumped in and tackled the work, and got the opportunity to use an "in your face," should you so choose to.

hee hee.

I am still chuckling. I am also very proud of you. I would like to take some credit, but we all know that is all your daddy. You are still daddy's little girl. I am happy beyond words that your laundry room is FINALLY getting fixed. ;)
Love you,
MOM

Debbie- I would have loved to do the "I told you so" dance, but this was around 10 last night I was just too tired!

Sass- I totally used the "in your face" as well as a few "you know you married a super genius and absolutely could not survive without me"'s

Mom- I think we are all super excited that the laundry room is getting finsihed! Do you know that I will actually have a FLOOR! WooHoo!
