Wives and the Stupid Shit They Say/Do

Recommended Posts

With Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals, I told my wife we need to watch our spending this month a bit, as we had a ton of big vacations this year.  Her response was along the lines of, "if we can't afford X, then we are saving too much and should cut back there."

This time of year, I'm so thankful my wife doesn't really spend money. All the women in our family (Her mother, my mom, Knox's wife and sisters) all went black Friday shopping.  Mrs Jameslaw wanted to stay home and watch the UT/TT game

If you are going on vacations all the time and still saving money then you can afford to indulge her Xmas nuttery. 

How did my wife take over Pato's account?

Mrs. NNM decided a pre-Thanksgiving cleaning of the oven was in order.  So she used the self-cleaning function, which basically just superheats the oven for 5 hours, incinerating anything in it.

Well, she forgot that she had a silicone oven liner on the bottom of the top oven.  Basically, a little shelf on the bottom to catch drips, crumbs, etc.  When you superheat a silicone oven liner, you incinerate it, and the particles get plastered all over the sides, top, bottom, and door of the oven, and get sucked into the convection and fan system.  Making the oven unusable forevermore.  And because it's a dual oven setup, both are now trash.

And these are not old ovens.  We built the house 3 years ago.  And upgraded the appliances.  

So now we're looking at about 5k to replace perfectly good, upgraded ovens.  A day before Thanksgiving.

homeowner's insurance claim?

I’d love to hear the purported cause of loss claimed on that one.

Wife.

It would be approved in a flash.

C’mon. This can’t be true...but then again it can, can’t it.

Holy shit.  Your wife cleans the oven?

You're missing the main point. His wife is incredibly hot, it's totally worth it, and he didn't post pics.

Down stairs is kinda like a halfway basement type thing because our house is on a hill leading down to the lake. We don't really go down there for much, so it was a centipede graveyard until recently. 3yo wanted a bubble bath and the upstairs only has a shower, so the bath mat had to come out along with all the dead bugs it was harboring. And yes the color is terrible. And the shower head is like chest height. Everything about the bathroom is bad. It wasn't exactly next on the list for remodeling,  but I guess it is now.

Bonding primer is your best friend right now. It will work on both the cabinet and shower enclosure/tub and make that shit look good for under $200 with some sweat equity and a few hours over a weekend. Need to space it out over 2-3 days for cure time between coats(2 prime coats and 2 paint coats).  Just did this on two 1970s dark wood kitchens and a bathroom with an avocado green shower stall. All three came out great. Bonding primer is what those 'miracle' bath remodel in a day companies use. You can even use it on formica countertops. Not sure if it will work with that 'cultured marble' counter but it will adhere to smooth tile so it should.

I recommend Insl-x -  http://www.insl-x.com/product-detail/inslx-products/stix-waterborne-bonding-primer  4-5 hours between coats

Then paint over it with Benjamin Moore's Advance in satin. https://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/interior-exterior-paints-stains/product-catalog/awiap/advance-interior-paint  16 hours between coats

Apply all coats with a smooth foam roller.

These are the 3 spaces I just did this way in our mountain cottage. There is a walkout basement apartment which is why there are two kitchens. All of those cabinet were dark wood.

"I promise, I won't buy anymore Christmas decorations......"

Two days later-

5 new hand towels- "they were so cheap"

A 7ft LED tree for outsdie- "It will look so perfect on the corner of the house"

Full set of xmas plates and bowls- "I have been looking for ones like these forever"

3 wreaths- I couldn't decide on which one I wanted to put on the front door"

AND

27 other things I either don't know about or don't remember.

A tree outside. That’s a new angle.

An electric tree(an important point see post above), outside, on the corner of the lot.

No chance for any shenanigans in that equation at all.

Christmas will be the death of me. We will have the following conversation 25 times before the holiday.

Her: Ugh! I have so much to do! I have to bake for the people at work, shop for (insert person I have never heard of before), something something for the church, I'll never get it all done!!

Me: But you volunteered for all that.

Well the wife wants me to take her to the thrift store that only has Christmas stuff. Now we get to buy a bunch of other people Christmas junk. As she would say, "It was cheap and I thought it would like nice". I thought I had put a moratorium on bringing home decorator crap for the house. She is supposed to get rid of stuff before bringing more crap home.

That doesn't work.  What does work?  For me, selectivity in getting Christmas decorations down from the attic.  Started with one of the boxes getting a red X, now there are probably 5.
