I keep telling her..."believe it or not, people DO pay me for this. I kind of know what I'm doing."

She probably can't figure out why.

We weren't there 6 months and I hear "I want to put on an addition for a 4th bedroom, we need a deck and I want to fence in the back yard for a pool.

"4th bedroom for what?"

"I want to have another baby."

I'd say your wife is a saint Greg.

BTW, the house was sold 18 months after we moved in because she wanted a divorce... all I did was work and spend time with my kids in the yard. She felt unloved.

No wonder she divorced you. You didn't leave her any shopping money.

nice... If I did not think that it would come back to haunt me, it would be in my signature.
