What is the Point?

From Janelle:

When I get home from work and I’m tired, the last thing I want to do is go over every detail that Lewis discussed with the contractor, electricians, plumber and A/V guys.  Not that I have a problem doing this but when we landscaped our front and back patio last year, we spent hours going over every detail, drawing out specs and measurements and spacing, he would meet with the contractor and various subs and then when I got home, I’d look around in exasperation and say, “That’s not what we talked about!” 

From Lewis:

 HAHAHAHA. Get over that project. Really!!! It looks pretty good. There were no real specs just a picture of the inspiration. When you ask how was my day, that was my day.  I’ve been hanging around during the day so that when a question comes up we can figure it out, come up with a solution and move on. And I know you want every detail and to make sure you have your input also but as with any well written plan there will always be something unexpected.  For anyone that knows Janelle she is very busy and does not have much down time.  But she is definitely not a morning person. And anyone who has seen that morning monster can provide you with advice as to not discuss anything before 10am.

From Janelle:

He is again missing the point.  It is true that I am not a morning person but Lewis has a knack of casually bringing up a topic in the morning that should involve an in-depth conversation about a major event that is happening that day but never said a word about the night before as I’m rushing to get out the door to work.  The point of this post is not that but the fact that we can discuss how we each think that a component will look, be completely convinced that we are on the same page and yet the results are often not even from the same book!

Ever look at your spouse/partner and wonder, “What language are you speaking?”

    Yes, yes, yes! That’s exactly what makes it all so dang interesting!!! Your final product is going to be a sweet combination of your opposing psyches — & it’s alllll going to be excellent!

  2. Based on that premise, every day is VERY interesting! The results will be awesome and the pain of getting there will make it even sweeter.
