    So far on his honey-do list I have:

    Bush hog the meadow behind the chicken coop
    Seal the leak in the roof of the chicken coop
    Clean off the screened porch
    Remove furniture from and shampoo carpet in the living room. Haven't hit him with my idea about painting the living room yet
    Drain and disassemble the fish tank (put it somewhere, anywhere BUT on the screened porch!)
    Take moi' to the fair
    GO TO THE DOCTOR!

    Did I forget anything?

    My hubby goes back to work tomorrow after 3 days of vacation this week plus the holiday. He did not complete the honey do list completely, but did get the fancy trim up on my coop, and get some odds/ends done.
    Remember, they're just little boys in big boy clothes... give them time with their Hot Wheels and playmates from time to time.

    Gritsar- Make him work hard till football comes on, but c'mon, lots of good football games saturday-sunday, then work him like a dog monday, and go riding the Harley the rest of the time [​IMG] He'll love having ya ride behind him [​IMG]
