Family and hobbies

This poor man is my husband Greg. he has on his lap Wicket my cat and beside him is J.J. his dog. As you can see in the corner of this picture he is like most males of the species and has a remote fixation. He recently purchased an Ozzy remote as he calls it. Instead of 4 or 5 remotes on the table there is only one big touchpad remote for all the toys. he is waiting for one that can program me to remember to do house work. Electrician by day his hobby is collecting woodworking tools kinda like me and sewing machines and doing woodworking thingies in his shop. The other day he purchased a large shop dust filtration system. Its supposed to collect all the wood dust from his workshop. Currently it is set up in my living room in front of the wood stove. I haven't said a thing about this massive item in my living room. He actually made note that I haven't said a thing about getting it out of the living room. I figure it will be moved when he is ready to use it. He also mentioned that I couldn't and shouldn't dare say anything about 1 tool (Big One) in the living room since at this current time I have 5 tubs of fabric and 3 sewing machines in the room and a couple of projects on the kitchen table . My stuff is all in view since it is an open room concept. I have been on a kick of organizing my fabric. It may not look like it at the moment to the non sewers eye however in my defense i am a fabri holic and I am sorting my stash.
When he was working on his apprenticeship he had to go to The Pas for 5 months. We were working on renovating the living room and kitchen area. I lived with his saw in the kitchen the entire time he was gone. It was this big heavy thing that I could not move so there it stayed until he came home and finished working with it. 10 months in total. Aniversaries have come and gone and I still don't have kitchen cupboards. Mmmm , he can live with my stash.
