Im constantly hunting my stuff down, it's all pretty much crisis management here because Mr. DHW gets sidetracked all the time.
Sometimes they have their heads on only so it doesn't rain in their necks.....gotta love 'em...

Hey! Not all of us guys get distracted that eas,,, Ooo, shiny!

Haha, just kidding. That is more like my wife.

Sometimes thing do get only half done because we come across something else that is more important to get done. We figure we can come back to finish but forget or something else comes up.

There have been many times that I'm in the middle of a project and I get a "Honey? Can you do this?" Then before that gets finished, "Oh, can you do this and that?" Then she wonders why the first thing isn't done.

Ok. I'm done. I'll let you ladies get back to your ranting.

I'm totally guilty of that! I'm so short, if it's much past the very edge of the 2nd shelf, I have to have help. So I'm frequently saying, "When you're done with that can I borrow your monkey arms?" and he drops what he's doing to help me. So, I get it, and I really DO appreciate what he does. Just every now and then...........errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!

And we have a running jo...squirrel!

I love hubby to pieces & couldn't survive without him.....BUT

I'm still trying to get over the fact we passed on a ready to go truck & picked up my SUV & a fixer upper truck so that we could pull the horse trailer. But I can't use the truck because it needs to be fixed & I can't use the trailer because it needs brakes & tires. But I need the truck to go get the trailer fixed.

So even tho I technically have a good set up, I still have to get a ride because he hasn't gotten to the truck. But his bike runs (he doesn't have a license yet).

Dreamcatcher if you can fix a drain and repair an electrical cord hell I will marry you. Just dont expect help in the repair department. I do have lots of contractors on speed dial.
i cant even change a tire and refuse to check my own oil in any of the vehicles that I own. Thats what they have full service stations for.
Now I know that marriage proposal sound like a crazy suggestion but if I married you I could save thousands a year. LOL Shalom

You are definitely not the only one that deals with boneheaded men.
Durring my daughter's first riding lesson I realized I had left her helmet at home, so I sent my hubby to get it. When he returned he informed me that my saddle had fallen out of the trunk of our suv. I could have died, this was my $1000 Billy Cook saddle, my pride and joy, next to my horses of course. Why did this happen? Well, while getting ready for our daughters lesson, I had been going back and forth from the trunk, getting things out. He totally spaced the fact that the trunk was wide open, and drove off like that. But of course, in his mind, it was my fault the saddle had fallen out because I left the trunk open. Really? I guess if he had actually HELPED me get our daughters gear out of the car, I could have blamed him. BONEHEAD!
Luckily no major damage was done to my saddle, just some scratches I guess I can live with. Like I have a choice.

Misery really does love company and I am so glad I am not alone

We are in the process of teaching our rescue not to leave the yard, no matter if the neighbor's Weimaraner is chuggin' down the road looking for cat food to steal.

Mason disappeared not too long ago - when Mr. WTW called and Mason didn't come, he dropped the water hose to go find Mason.

Nothing wrong with that BUT how about shutting the water off first?

It is common practice for my 27 yr old Arab to stand at the closed door and demand his Royal Self (ask him and he'll tell ya) be let in the barn well ahead of everyone else.

Bless Mr. WTW for obliging Streeter BUT how about locking Streeter in his stall BEFORE you walk off to finish your chores? You know that horse will sneak out the door at the other end to look for any open gate and go exploring. Even if that means going down the road?

Yes, like everyone else on this thread, there are moments of receiving barn help that I wish he'd just sit in the recliner watching 30 yr old NASCAR races for the 52nd time

A Good Horseman Doesn't Have To Tell Anyone; The Horse Already Knows.

I CAN'T ride 'em n slide 'em. I HAVE to lead 'em n feed 'em Thnx cowchick77.
