Because he works in retail, Dave frequently has days off in the middle of the week. I love those days because I leave for work, confident that he will fix something in the house or clean a little. So, as I depart for a trip to Kansas City and he has two days off, I hope he remembers this conversation from last week.
Dave: I did something in the house today that is going to make you happy.
Me: Did you steam clean the dining room carpet?
Me: Did you replace the outlet cover in the living room?
Dave: No. Think kitchen.
Me: Did you get the dead bugs out of the lighting fixture on the ceiling? (ew.. just noticed those the night before)
Me: Did you de-clog the dishwasher hose?
Me: Did you fix the squirty faucet?
Dave. No. I should be making a list.
Me: Did you cut down and re-attach the dryer hose?
Dave: No. A hint.... this is something that has been driving you crazy.
Me: A-ha! You cleaned the drip from the inside of the oven's glass.
Dave: Bingo. Jacob, I guess I know what our list is for the next day off.
Poor guy. I guess I just see things with different eyes than he does. I should also point out that I dripped coffee creamer down the front of the oven almost a year ago - it went into a vent hole and was in between the two pieces of glass on the front. Not knowing how to tear apart the door, I have been hanging a towel over the spot. Dave is now my hero.
Here are a few layouts I did while in Pennsylvania. These two photos of Jacob were left over from a little mini album that I made of Father's Day 2003. I am in a style rut, and these two make that obvious.
Only 5 days til Scrap for a Cause and I hope seeing so many other scrappers at once will jog my creative juices!
