Tyler is an awesome date-planner. Always has been, always will be. But the whole date-night on the regular bit? Not our forte. Blame it on the dearth of excited 12 year olds to babysit the little or what have you. That is not to say that we are lacking in love or exciting things to do together. In fact, being married to an inventor provides for some of the most fun (and unconventional) nights being together. This makes me incredibly happy. Tonight was one of those nights and, as usual, it was awesome.
This is us working together. Making a jet-testing device. Actually waterproofing the aforementioned device that is mostly made. Tyler is nice, he gets all the goop on his hands - though, to be totally honest, I don't mind getting all messy too. We had a whole discussion on whether we think the caulk is going to work as well as the silicone sealant. Earlier we found out how not waterproof the box originally was. We raided our bathroom for toilet paper to help clean up some messes because I forgot to buy paper towels yet again. The drill has been going fairly on the regular. When Mili is awake she is learning words like 'socket,' 'bolt,' and 'drill bit.' And the heater fan was even out so I could sit in front of it, hog the warmth, and reminisce about our first little tiny flat in England that was in an oh-so-sweet location by the beach but I may have failed to mention that the place was absolutely frigid for 99% of our time there.
To those of you who doubt that this is, in fact, fun - you don't even know. Inventing brings adventures you never even dreamed of into your marriage! Especially when you are two fairly laid back people who aren't too stuck on being right or doing it your way. And so, here is one reason I highly recommend marrying an inventor.
