Please forgive me, I never made it down this far on the page before.

I left the corporate world and ended up a handyman. Boy I sure sleep better at night working for my family instead of the big bosses.

My trophy bride and I have been married 7 year. We have a 5 year old boy and a 2 year old girl. She stays with me in the mornings until mommy gets home. She helps me with the shopping and some of the estimates. Since almost 1/2 of my time is getting materials and estimates, it works out well. Also she is a hit with the retired ladies who often need my services.

Thank you for providing a wonderful place to learn! Jay

Jay, don't forget the tax advantages of hiring your own children.

Hey Grumpy, I bet we could work out a deal - perhaps work her at a percentage of sales? :cheesygri

By the way she can be difficult to have at times - have you ever noticed the lack of changing facilities at lumber yards, plumbing stores and the like?
