My used-to-be-sweet husband has been grumbling for the past two weeks about how I am "always changing" things...I think he is going to be one cantakerous old man.
I just give him a tilted head, brow furrowed incredulous stare.
After I am sure he has taken note of my facial expression, I--ever so slowly--ask,"Darling, who, in their right mind, would think that painting a room EVERY 16 YEARS is "always changing?" (I may raise my voice an octave or two on the 16 year part.)
It's not like I am not working just as hard as he is. (Frankly I am working much harder since I am also making all the window coverings, rearranging the cabinets, cleaning and dusting everything, etc. etc. He's painting with a roller and helping to move only the heavy items. But for the sake of household peace, I will pretend it's an equal effort.)
We have a professional painter doing some work at the hotel. He told me that next time I should just call him. I think that's exactly what I will do. Then I will hand the bill to DH and see if he likes that better than helping with the work!
I have decided to do a little poll to see if perhaps I am wrong and 16 years is too frequent to change paint color. So I would be very grateful to you, if you could take just a moment to take the "How Often do You Repaint" poll on the top right of my blog.
If I am wrong, I shall be woman enough to give DH my most humble apology for making him work so much harder than other married men.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
