Being in charge of dinner. Sometimes we go out which can end with mixed results depending on how tired the girls (6 and 3) are. Or I make dinner which can end with mixed results as well.

Hate the fact that I decided to use a chisel to pop out the packing in my sprayer and need need to spend 240 bucks to have the repair guy fix it. Feeling pretty stupid this morning. Grrrrrrrr.

Love the fact he just happened to have a replacement part in the scrap pile for my old sprayer. And the fact we don't need it today and can have it back for tomorrow.

I was filling up a couple diesel cans and saw the biggest pair of jugs I've seen in a while.

But I stopped paying attention and soaked my pants in diesel...damn.

Re: Things You Love & Hate


Thinking semi retirement would be nice, working the honey jobs, relaxed pace, never setting your alarm, grab the fishin pole or clubs when the inkiling strikes you.....pricing jobs as a home run

Getting those jobs, setting the alarm and working 24 year old hours again

One is slightly larger than the other. My last X had a pair like that - took them with her when we split up.

Re: Things You Love & Hate


Hate that upgrading mine and my wife's phones took 3 hours. We were eligible for a trade in, but since both our phones were replaced under warranty the computer said we were bringing back the wrong phones. Mine went through fairly easy but my wife's was the hard one because we just got her warranty replacement yesterday.

Love that the only solution the phone company could come up with is to give us the old phone and let us get a new one anyways. Now I have a note 4, wife has iPhone 6, and we have a refurbished, never used galaxy s5 to sell.

I've had a similar situation with a different outcome. They're so reliant on the change computing through the system that if it doesn't work you're outta luck. Nice that they could do much for you though.
