I just won't have the time to build models much my life is making some changes. My girlfriend has bought a house and she has a honey do list as long as my arm. I'm looking at a ton of work and I'm thankful I paid attention to my pop's when I worked for his drywall business. I'll still pop in from time to time just to see what I'm missing.

A honey do list ??? Come on bro, I've got three kids, work out of town, and so does my wife, which leaves me as mr mom three nights a week, two projects in the garage, a ton of projects in the house. There is always time to put in a little work on some plastic.... You have a counter in your bathroom right !! 😄

I hope your building a place in the house to do some model building. I understand the "list " very well. The sooner the house is done the sooner you can build again. Good luck. But remember..... All work and no play.. you know the rest.

Girl friend huh?

Well, I see your problem. Honey do lists are only for married couples.

Tell her that ASAP.

In my book, Honey Do's are far more important than a bunch of silly pieces of plastic.(Still married to the same wonderful woman 42+ years now! ;) )

Not to seem like a jerk, but I gotta agree with Jim. I'm not saying don't help her out, but "a ton of work"? I think that is pushing the boyfriend envelope. Good luck with it.

i take it you've never been married? it will.

mnwildpunk, you will need some stress relief at some point, so keep your modelling tools handy.

She doesn't read this so it's safe here. The ring is already bought and soon under the tree so no she isn't pushing it

Don't set a standard that you will have to keep up for the next forty or so years. Take your time and don't finish that honey do list to fast. She very may well expect that kind of dedication forever. Your weekend could end up like this, no watching football, no modeling, no guy things, just matching the paint to the decorative pillows in the bedroom at Bed, Bath and Beyond. Just some advice from one married guy to a about to be married guy.

the ring is bought and will be under the tree?

no..no...NOOOO!... don't do that way!. wrapping an engagement ring up as a gift is just wrong in so many ways. be a man wait in till after all gifts have been opened and then pull the ring out from where ever you have it stashed and ask her. better yet ask her on x-mas eve. just whatever you do don't make it into a gift because that is not what it is.

Oh no ya it's not going to be a gift. I'm going down on one knee the whole bit. It's going to be well after so she doesn't see it coming! I know the answer is yes. Because she has been dropping suttle hints like "when are you going to get off your ___ and marry me. She even has her son asking to marry her.

I know a young man that was in your exact situation a few years back. He got HER house into great shape just in time for her new man to walk into a nice place with nothing needed. He had his maxed out Home Depo card to rub salt into that wound.

Sometimes life gets in the way of our hobbies. We must prioritize. I havent touched a kit in over a month myself, fall is a busy time when you own property, lots of mulching, gardens to prepeare for winter, etc. At least I've had a bit of onlime model stuff, lol. You are doing the right thing. In time, you can get back to building. I hope to be next weekend.
