Today Was Work Day In The Garage With My "Sweet Honey"

We have a separate garage that has everything in it! It has our Corvette in it all covered up with a car cover. It has an extra refrigerator in it. I have 3, do you think that is enough? It has my freezer out there. It has a little bit of everything. We remodel houses, so everything we need when we do that, is in there. I can't begin to name it all. Anyway, we reorganized it today. I was hoping that we would get rid of some of it, but my "sweet honey" has turned into the way I used to be. Here is an example of our conversation:

Me: Hey honey, have you used this in a while?

Hubby: No, but I have been looking for that!

Me: Honey, this looks tore up.

Hubby: I know. I have been meaning to fix it.

Me: Can we throw it away?

Hubby: No, one day I will get to it.

Me: What is this?

Hubby: I don't know, but put it over here. It probably goes with something.

Me: Is there anything in here that we can do away with?

Hubby: No way, we might need it someday!
And on and on and on.
We did get rid of 5 things, but they were mine! I wouldn't want to show you the before pictures, but I will show you the after pictures. It doesn't look too neat, but it is a lot better than it was. I would hate for my "Sweet Honey" to come in to my sewing room and try to make me get rid of stuff, so I understand completely. I just love this man! He makes my life complete!

Hilarious! No one has a better organized place than yours! The garage looks great!

Don't feel bad about three refrigerators...I have two - but then I have 4 freezers. We store beef in one, chicken and pork in the other, garden produce and fruit in the 3rd one. The last one holds flour, cake mixes, pecans, & cheese. I buy items when on sale and freeze them (if they can be frozen).

Keeping a garage clean is an on-going project. My husband tries to keep it clean as it is really is a work shop...but like our sewing rooms - if you work in them they are going to get cluttered.

Have a wonderful Sunday and praise God for his blessings.

No way am I allowed in my other half's workshop. He loves spending his time amongst his 'organised' mess. I am escorted out if I ever try to tidy up in there! x

What a great post. I smiled at this one and LOVED how you shared the dialogue. That's was GREAT.
