I tell them that we never realized how much work maintaining a home was until we bought one.
And I tell them that the fact of the matter is, that my husband and I are just not handy people.
I think I'm going to have to revise that last statement though.
While I hung out with O this past weekend, Ben hunkered down in the basement and built a raised bed.
I must say, I am ridiculously impressed He still needs to add something to it (I sort of tuned out when he was telling me what) and it still needs to be installed in the ground, but in the mean time it makes an awesome toddler cage.
