Our dining-room-to-be is being sheetrocked today, which is a pretty exciting step. Soon it will be time to decide on the vinyl (more on this later: all my favorites were not just the "good," not just the "better," and not even the "best" categories, but the "luxury" category. Um, no.), and on paint colors (likely to be cream, because that's almost always what I end up indecisively choosing).
The sheetrocking guy is nice, too: he has the radio on and I can tell he's restraining himself from singing along too loudly so he won't disturb us, but he keeps whistling and singing in spite of himself, including a falsetto segment on a Faith Hill song.
I think of that kind of thing as a sign of an inherently happy person. Paul is the same kind of whistler/singer, although of course he belts it out because this is his own house. If I were ever in a position to remarry, I'd look for that singing/whistling thing again. Paul may have his tempers like anyone else, and he might drive me crazy sometimes like any husband would, but he's about 1% tempers/crazy-making and about 99% singing along with the radio and doing falsetto on the girl songs, and that makes for a pretty happy life.
And now the sheetrocking guy can't hold back anymore, because Tainted Love is on. Ha! He's whistling the little boww-boww noises, then going loud for a few moments on the lyrics before remembering where he is and damping the sound.
But here is the point of this post: fretting! Should I be offering the sheetrocking guy some snacks or drinks or something? He's been working out there for 6 solid hours, and as far as I can tell he hasn't taken a break. I have brownies in the oven, and could offer him some when they're done, with his choice of milk or ice water or Heineken.
But I feel so shy about it! What if he's diabetic? What if he wants milk but only if it's 2%? What if he thinks I'm hitting on him or something? *wrings hands*
What do you do, when you have people working on your home? Do you offer snacks/drinks?
