Title: women
Post by: Tom L on September 06, 2012, 04:04:17 PM
so I am out of space, have been for a long time, seems like a lifetime I have been working and living in a space that is 1/2 as small as I need,

all of the white pine that I have been milling I put in my small kiln and dry it then set the pitch. takes a month or longer for each load in the kiln. the processed pine ready for sale is stacked on my outside enclosed porch. all of the material on the right side is stacked according to widths and thickness, and has been kiln dried and baked, all the material on the left side hasn't. so the other night after I go to bed , the wife is outside and what does she decide to do? after asking me three times if I can do something about the pine. and me telling her I can't it has to stay. she decides to make a giant pile, re arrange everything into one corner of the porch. so now I can not sell any pine for a while . it all has to go thru the kiln and thru the bake cycle again. I have no way of knowing if one piece or another has had it's pitch set.

wouldn't you know it, yesterday I get a call from a guy, big user, who needs a bunch of it. and want to come and pick up all that I have ready.  had to tell him he had to wait and he will definitely go elsewhere
bet I lost a grand and three months of work.

I would say that most of the time they just watch our mouths move.

I wasn't there, and I'm not going to take sides here......but I'll bet that if she knew WHY the pine had to stay there, the result might have been different.

Personally, I like it when my woman..  No, mustn't say it.  Mustn't say it.  Jeff will throw me in the wood shed.

Sounds like something my ex-husband would do  :D



Well.... if he had that much energy  ;)

I agree with explaining why.

If there are 228 items in a room out of place and only 5 are mine, those are the 5 that will be moved to another location.  The other 223 will not be moved.
She that must move my stuff!!!  Tom, I feel your pain.

let me guess, she then gets mad when you ask her where she put your stuff.(because it is not where you put it) and tells you that you should have put them away in the first place ;D

 I was trying to stay away from this one,  :-X  but man , can I relate to you guys  ::)  She cleaned out my shop last weekend, she told me this after I got back from a trip to New Hampshire to get new to me motor for my mill.
Me:       WHAT   :o :o   
Her:      It's ok , I did not touch any of your tools.
Me:       Then what did you touch,   :-\
  I had enough trouble finding things that I knew where to look for , let alone look for things I have no clue to where there where abouts are now  :-\ ::)

You have to remember...

A Wife is always right. Why?
Because she owns 50% of the money....and 100% of everything else.

Case closed.  :D

I think I would have to retire. I have 12 years in my present house, of knowing where in my shop I have put everything. would take another 12 years to find everything and restore it to it's present form of (organized)  clutter.

My wife cleaned my shop once, and has not been allowed in there since.
Yes, it looks it but then....

My wife knows better than to even go and get a tool from my shop and NEVER tries to put them back when I do let her use them. She lays on the bench just like I ask her too and I put them away my self. Even my girls understand that.

Only one that doesn't is my son, and some time I could string him up. If the tools he has lost ever germinate I will have a bumper crop.

Happened here, too.  One time only and we came to the understanding that the shop was mine.  So then she moved all my tools/stuff into the shop and left it alone.  However, she just couldn't help herself yesterday and swept up all the sawdust off the floor, which I actually appreciate.  But I'm afraid she has her eye on the rest of it now.

If I keep my mouth shut I get in trouble anyway. Hmmmm must be doing something wrong :-\. Oh well gets to the point where you just suffer through it and go on. Better to have her mad and quiet than try figuring out which hoop you need to jump through today ;D

Mrs. Okra would never do anything like that. Especially if I told her why it was so important to leave stuff a certain way. But neither she nor I can ever find the stuff we're looking for, anyway.  :-X

My youngest child has a vocabulary of about 7 words. Things like "Dada, Mama, bye-bye, ball, wet," etc.

Yup, I knew better.  I should have said "ask your 8 year old".   ;D

Our youngest Grandson is 9 and he knows where everything is.   ::)

A few years back after a rather nasty heart attack, I was hospitalized for about three weeks only to come home to find my shed/workshop had been "tidied"  most of my good stuff, carefully accumulated over thirty odd years had gone to the dump and the remnants sorted into the most illogical groups.  But, at least, it looked pretty neat.  I nearly arrested again.  I know it wasn't meant as a heart attack generator since I have no life insurance, it was intended as an act of kindness and consideration.

It was really tough to say "yes dear" to that one.

Strange how women think.

Don't do the wood working thing,but collect stamps and postmarks. I lived alone when I met my wife to be. I had one room for my "junk" as she called it. I could put my hand on anything in that room. She threated more than once to "clean" that room. I got ready to move and I "cleaned" that room. More than $4000 worth of "junk" was pulled out of that room.  ;D

Hahaha I am only 27 and when she moves my stuff and i ask where she put it she responds, "i didn't touch it". I usually find what ever i am looking for where she spends her time at. This is going to be a loooooong road ahead.

I've been thinking about this (I think it's the same thing) for over 30 years.  I'm still quite puzzled.  I think there are times that men become invisable.  Neither Newton or Einstien could figure it out.  It's an exciting world we live in.

I think I am visible every month, when it is time to pay the mortgage and bills,

at that point I am alive and clearly seen in all views

I work out of town all week, My wife cooks and cleans, mows the grass, till's, plants, weeds and harvest the garden. She feeds the dogs and the chickens and gathers the eggs. She washes my clothes when I come home and pays all the bills. She even lets me cuddle from time to time. As good as she is, she knows to stay out of my shop, which makes her GREAT!.
