The trick with women is finding one that manufactures a brand of bullshit that you can tolerate But seriously, it's all about give and take. Both people in the relationship need to remember that they are married to another individual with their own set of wants, desires, needs, dreams, ambitions, personality etc. Everyone needs room to be themselves otherwise you cease to grow. The trick is growing together and in the same direction. I don't have this perfected but I have a decent idea of how it should work and try my best to keep that all in mind.
I've done a bunch of work recently and posted a few more pics. Right now the big this is a keyboard shelf for my collection of keyboards. I am using part of the Ikea Stolmen collection to build this. It used to come in brushed aluminum but now is sold with a cream white powder coating. I am working to get that powder coating removed. The brackets cleaned right up with a can of paint stripper. The poles on the other hand have been difficult. At this time they are slathered in aircraft stripper and wrapped in Saran Wrap. When I looked this morning it looked pretty good. I'm thinking I'll run them to the car wash after work and hit them with the pressure washer.
