TDY $ = Project $
I think it's funny that after 5 years of marriage, Pave is JUST realizing that the extra money we make while he is TDY (this time to NCO Academy) really turns out to be my project money (it was the same thing with his deployment money...). Yes- I'm that wife that spends more money while her husband is gone... don't send me snarky comments- he just laughs at me, and says he 'never knows what house he's going to come home to'.
If I would have blogged about this earlier, you would have felt my pent up RAGE from having to rebuild the damn thing 4 times... because the place where we got the plans- ya, she was smoking crack or something... but now I'm far enough removed, that I can look at my bed and just be happy!
Pave also doesn't do well with painting, because he sees me do
unsafe things, getting creative to paint all the high places in our house.... one day I sent him this picture (more zoomed in so all he saw was wall, the placement of doors would have given away what room it was in). He was dieing to know what room I was painting... he didn't discover it until he got home.
I had to re-paint, because I was TRICKED into getting this crazy-ass fabric for the headboard. I used to have a brown rough silk fabric headboard in our master bedroom, but since I just built us a nice new bed, it was no longer needed, so it got transferred to our guest bedroom. I was harassed (unendingly) by my two friends for being vanilla... and then they tricked me... though its sorta growing on me- Pave on the other hand, is very glad its in the guest bedroom... a door that we keep shut most of the time (can I blame my vanillaness on him?)
