As I was discussing house designs with my husband a few nights ago, I noticed 2 admirable traits of Czech people. The women are domestic divas and the men are builders.
The women do amazing jobs at home. I attended a birthday party once where the woman of the house cooked/baked everything that was served in the party, including the birthday cake. I think that is just amazing considering that she has to keep the house clean, prepare utensils and decorations for the party, and souvenirs for the attendees….all by herself. I don’t know how she did it, but it just simply blew me away.
In our old place, we once had a neighbor who did a major renovation for his mother’s house. Day and night, he would go there and work till the sun settles. At first I thought he lived there, but there were days when we saw him drive in with his bike at 6am, then leave at 8pm. He insulated the whole house and made a balcony complete with French windows. I thought that was awesome but little did I know that my own husband, my father-in-law and my brother-in-law did the same. My husband insulated the house and rebuilt the garage. My father-in-law built a room and a garage in his house. My brother-in-law renovated his whole house. And they did these with little to no help.
I realized all these because when I told my husband I wanted a Japanese style door, but not sure where I can get them, he simply replied: “Oh, I can make them.” Hello, Bob the builder!
