Her idea is a story for all ages and a tale about getting to THE END.
If I had to categorize my husband and I, I would say that he is a thinker and I’m a doer. What I mean by that is Bob likes to take his time to tackle projects. He reads, he researches, sometime he ends up scrapping ideas in the name of perfection. I, on the other hand, will start on a task as soon as it is discussed and even if it isn’t ‘Grade A’ material, I like to be able to cross it off of my to-do list and start on the next thing. Bob’s and my relationship has actually made us both better in this area; he takes less time struggling over the start of an idea and I now take more time to think before I start a project. While our brains are pretty hardwired at our age, the old saying that ‘you can’t teach on old dog new tricks’ is actually pure bologna.
