Mr. Fix-it

What is it about a man who is smart and sensitive, but can also fix things, that is so darn sexy?

Our water main sprung a leak last week. So hubs got some supplies at Home Depot, broke out his tools and shovel and got to work. He even gently moved the family of toads that lives there to a shovel-safe spot. How sweet is that?





As I was snapping a few pics he asks:

He: Are you taking pictures just to make fun of me?

Me: Yes, knowing how to fix the water main is so mock-worthy… you LOSER!

He: Are you just taking pictures so you know how to fix a leak after I die?

Me: Nah, I’ll just call someone…



Sheesh, where is the trust around here?



Also sweet this week…

Wow! Chilean AND he fixes stuff??? with real tools and everything??? (I mean, no string, paper clips, or duct tape?)
Sounds like you got a real keeper!

Oh, he probably could have done it with a paper-clip and duct tape too! He's very MacGyver-esque that way (or very Chilean).

I bet if you'd told him the truth (that he looked darn sexy), he would have fixed everything else around the house that's been on the fix-list for ages....

seriously, a sensitive man who can fix things is such a rarity--go you for finding a man like that!

And I think I've said this before, but your children are absolutely beautiful! What an adorable picture

Oh my gosh! That is the sweetest picture ever! Stinkin' cute! Your hubs does look pretty sexy out there I must admit. The safe removal of the toads tops it off too.
With all the stuff I've done wonder if I would be called Mrs. Fix it...

Margaret, so true! Everything is fixed with duct tape even, you know, electrical wires.

Annje, cute pics!

I feel exactly the same way. My husband makes living in our ancient house possible and his mr. fixit abilities are very sexy.

The kiss photo is too cute.

Our maridos have the same haircut.

HEY! At least it's not mullets!
