Preparing for the furnace

Preparing for the furnace

The HVAC people are coming tomorrow.  There is not a whole lot of room in the furnace area to work as we have a lot of stuff stored there.  It would take me about 5 minutes to move the stuff out and away.

Yesterday afternoon:
“You need to move all that stuff from the furnace area.”

“No big deal, I will do it tomorrow…will take 5 minutes.”

“Don’t throw anything away.”

“I know better.”  (Most of the stuff is worthless, some might call it shit.)

“Even the empty boxes.”

“No worries, can’t have enough useless empty boxes.”


Later at night, right as I was falling asleep.

“You should probably move your Total Gym, they will need to move stuff by that.”

“OK, I can move it two feet or into your office, either way will take less than 30 seconds.”

The next morning.

“I’m going to the basement to practice guitar, but first I’ll move all that stuff your so friggin worried about.”

“OK, don’t forget your phone.”


When I went to the basement I found that she had already moved everything out of the furnace area.  The only thing not moved was the Total Gym gizmo.  I immediately called her.

“You are a piece of work.  When did you move everything?”

“Last night before I came upstairs after ‘Jeopardy’ “


Two minutes later I received a text.

“Why do you think I asked if you had your phone?”


  1. A recording of your exchanges with Mrs C would fetch a fortune LOL

    Aah gone are the days when I thought it was easier to do things myself.

  2. At least you didn't have to move the stuff.

  3. Oh my goodness Joe that was too good, when you called her you should have said "I need you to come down here and move the Total Gym too"

  4. Your wife knows you so well. So very well. What Jimmy said too.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. ☺

  5. HA! She's a smart lady. No need to worry about something getting done if ya do it yourself. Kinda reminds me of that joke: Ladies, after a man says he'll do something, there's no need to remind him every six months.

  6. We know you're not really going to do it on time. Or to our satisfaction. So doing it ourselves cuts out several worrying steps.

  7. Heeheehee! Too funny, both of you.

  8. See this is why i adore ladies more
    they are always foresighted and attentive when they are up to something

    i laughed loud at end you poor joe!
    but you are smart believe me that is why she is your wife you hahaha
