today my wife went to rockler and got me a wood scraper and a moisture meter for my birthday, i thought what a really nice wife but [*] tonight she tells me she wants the 50’‘flat screen to move up stairs with the boze speakers and everything else . so we went and got enough materials to get started on an entertainment center.
rockler had a sale today and tomorrow , anything that you can fit in a shopping bag is 20% off . i might be going back to rockler tomorrow !

Watch out.
My wife never minds me buying wood working items as long as we have the funds. However, I have learned that when SHE suggests me buying something without me mentioning it to her, there’s a catch. There’s either some project she wants done right away, or there’s something expensive for her hobby she wants she’s buttering me up for.
I will get her whatever she wants for her hobbies too as long as we have the funds just like she allows me to do. I’m not telling her that though. If I told her then the buttering up when she wants something might stop. I like the buttering up. The butterin up process gets me tools.

@William – either way it’s lubrication ;-).

I’ll trade tools for tasks just any time.
