My husband actually looks forward to throwing his parties, as well as I look forward to hiding out in the basement guy cave while he hosts them. I will do all of the manual labor, set up the tables or decorations, go buy the food as well as drinks, as well as everything else he may need, but when the celebration starts I go hide out in our guy cave to watch activities as well as drink beer. I will do almost anything for her, but making small talk with his besties is not one of those things. My guy cave is fairly large, because I took over the entire basement. I have our own control equipment down here, so that I can best utilize the zone temperature controls for our central Heating, Ventilation and A/C system. What this means, in more straight-forward terms, is that I can set our own cooling levels separate from those upstairs. My husband could set his control equipment but he wanted for his celebration, it would not affect myself and others down here. The only complication this time was that his control equipment stopped now working, as well as no matter what he did he could not get the A/c to turn on. She was on the verge of panic when I made his a deal — he as well as his friends could go to the basement as well as love the AC down there, but I got the rest of the home to myself for the evening. Once they all went downstairs, I changed out the batteries in the control equipment as well as turned the cooling system back on. It actually was that straight-forward of a complication to fix.
