Whenever I was growing up, our dad never fixed anything around the house at all.
She just was not 1 of those boys who ever l gained how to maintenance anything and so she would always spend money someone else to do it.
I grew up thinking that that is how you got things fixed. I never entirely knew that you really had the opportunity to maintenance things yourself unless you were a professional. However, whenever I got married to our hubby it was the exact opposite. When she was a kid, her dad taught him to maintenance all kinds of things around the house. When the people I was with and I moved in together, It was a totally odd story from what I was used to. If something were to tear up around the house, our hubby instantly started to work on it himself. She refused to spend money anyone else to maintenance anything for him. This included everything from the plumbing to the heating and cooling system. The last time our central cooling system tore up on us, I was convinced that our entire air conditioner machine was going to have to be upgraded. I was ready to just call the local Heating as well as Air Conditioning business and have them come out to maintenance the cooling system, but then our hubby showed up with her toolbox and got down to business. She tested the cooling system and by the time she was done, it was totally fixed. I couldn’t know it and now I’m entirely ecstatic that our hubby knows what he’s doing around the house!
