Hubby. I thought writing about him would be easier than writing about myself, but I’m not so sure that’s true. Jason is 33. As of this year, he is a journeyman electrician, and I could not be prouder of him. When we started dating, he was in school for an associates degree in graphic communication. He finished that just after we got married. However, that wasn’t the career path he wanted. After working miscellaneous jobs for a few years, he went back to school for art education. Then he switched to software engineering. In the end, we decided that he should follow the family career path. He is now a fourth generation electrician.
He is very artistically gifted. However, he denies his talent and points to his mom and siblings (who are extremely talented artists). Our kids are also artistic and creative. (Very much unlike their mother. Ha!)
Jason is really skilled with technology too. Oops, I broke my phone screen! He can replace it. He has fixed countless laptops and other devices. When we first got married, he enjoyed building computers. He hasn’t been as involved with those kinds of activities in the last several years, but friends and family still come to him when they have issues with their technology.
In the last few years, he has become a lot more handy around the house. It wasn’t that he couldn’t do it before; he just wasn’t interested in doing that hands-on stuff. But he has started doing the vast majority of our car repairs. (And there are A LOT of them! We have the worst car luck EVER!) We are currently building a fence. He recently fixed our storm door.
Honestly, Jason just doesn’t give himself enough credit. Anything he puts his mind to, he can do! If only he would put his mind to homesteading, like I would love to do. Ha!
