How I wish, on any day like this that Mike the plumber in Desperate Housewifes would be living next door to me. But then again if he does, I think MakAndeh will start thinking of moving to my kampung as well (Jangan marah MA, gurau je ekk).
If he really does live next door I would just pop my head over the fence and call out his name to tell thim to come and do some plumbing work at home, while I drool at his muscle or hunk of a body or what ever else there is to drool at. Hehehe.
And then I would not have to tell my husband these anymore, over and over again until they are fixed .
Abang, sinki dapur bocor lah.
Tap kat bathroom tu dah berminggu dah leaking bila nak fix
Tu cermin yang abang beli untuk bilik air tu bila nak gantung tu?
In the days of DIY, my husband would rather do a lot of fixing by himself. Not that he cannot do it. But the problem is he has the habit of procastinating things. He loves gardening so much he will put off anything else for gardening.
When we just renovated this house I asked him why not ask the contractor to fix the curtain railing. He said No, he will do it himself. Yes, he took the measurement, went to buy the materials and it was almost a year before I could fix up the curtain. Even now I still have some curtain I can't hang because some windows still without the railings.
At one time he got excited about putting up photos and pictures. He had this idea of putting up photos of his parents and mine, our families etc. He had bought some photo frames, lots of them, but up till now, the frames are still in the box, my wall is still empty. He did put up some pictures, those were the pictures we had before. That was done because it was raya time and just before the kenduri we had last year.
What is more disheartening is when I remind him to fix this and that, he thinks that I am nagging him. Even when the reminder is in a nicest possible way. Isn't it true ladies? Blessed is the wife whose husband is so attentive in fixing things fast. No need for nagging or being nagged.
Please don't take it wrong, although I am writing this, it does NOT mean that I don't love my husband. I love him dearly. Can't imagine my life without him around. But then again, he is not perfect and neither am I. I just wish that he is better in executing certain things which I would like him to do in a faster mode than his usual speed. There may be other wives out there having the same problem as I am having now, but would rather keep it in their heart.
So husbands, please take this not as a complaint but rather as something to improve yourselves. if we can do things ourselves we wil do it. Please also do not think and say that we are nagging you if we keep on reminding you about certain things like paip bocor or sinki tersumbat. If you can take a break to play badminton with your friend, you can take the time to fix the problem too otherwise, call some cute plumber to get the job done OK :-)
To all the wives, do not nag your husbands too much. If you need to remind do it in a nice loving way, like over a cup of coffee or just before you get to bed etc. Maybe he will remember it better to spend the time to fix the problem.
