I think I would just keep quiet and let him find it himself play it cool. We have this rule its a silent rule. I sudenlly had a dent in my car no one new what happened.about 3 weeks later and me wondering what happened to my car my husband said he and kids were playing softball he missed a catch. and kaabam thats how I got the dent.. about 2 weeks ago I was driving his truck it is a 2005 Ford F250 big truck red We call it big red it has a liscence plate on front air brushed like the Big red gum wrapper.We live in the country and I was driving and hit a branch and busted his Mirror Its one of those with the defogger built in and the turn signals ect... I started my conversation like this Remember when I got the dent in my car well dear I did not get mad because I knew it was an accident , with that he ran out the door going what did you do to my baby, He did not take it very well. especially after he found out it will cost $800.00 to get a new one.. So next time I will play it cool like I have no idea what happened.honesty is not always the best policy my hubby is on a need to know basis and sometimes he just doesnt need to know..
Yes, Chutzie...the circuit breaker for it was off...turned it off when we decided not to use it. It's not a heat pump like they use down south for both heat and AC, athough it is conncected to our thermostat. OMG...if it had been on when I snipped the wires I would have been fied to a f..t!
Maybe I can 'suggest' to him that the neighborhood darlings did it...Last summer they went into every open vehicle they could find and stole sunglasses, registrations, insurances cards, portable navigation systems ...stuff that took weeks and money to replace, and tossed them in the Oswego River which is a block from me. They were supposed to do community service all summer...like mowing lawns of the victims(which we were one) but I never saw them again!
Oh S#!+ Donna!!!!! GeeeeeeeeeZ Girl!!!
Well you're so danged cute, I'd use all of the excuses you gave us and he'd be so busy laughing his *** off, how could he be mad!! If that doesn't work, maybe you could tell him Eddie the Claw did it!!! (I heard he works for Bernie Madoff on the side).
Doesn't your husband know that fibromites can't be trusted with power tools??? My husband wouldn't ever trust me alone with something that dangerous with my brain flatulations!!!!
Good Luck and we'll call 911 if we don't hear from you in a couple of days.

Well, I put on a hockey helmet, knee pads and a flap jacket and showed him the wires. He told me just what kitty said...he would get an electrician and have some wire caps put on them. Then he walked inside and took a nap. So all is well. Marlee...if you read this there are no 'vents' to close in this basement. There are huge saucer sized holes in the duct work where the former owners just let the cold air flow out. Some of them had aluminum foil over them.
Thanks for all you advice....I was so hoping Bernie Madoff could have done this!
Hilarious reasons you were going to tell him! Glad you are alive and well- he wasn't too upset if he went in to take a nap!
