He's driving me crazy!!

December 2nd, 2009 at 11:49 am

My husband is home for this entire week. In the almost 33 years we have been married, he has worked all the time. 7 days a week, weekends, holidays.

This is the first time that work has been slow. He got a lot down around the house the past few months. (BTW, he is a builder, but specs are not selling here)
He has a house, but the owner wants to do a lot of the work to save money. So dh is out of work until all the painting is done.

He is driving me crazy trying to find something to do. A few months ago, he retiled both the front and back porches. (BIG JOB) He laid rock. He has replaced light fixtures! Last week he replaced all the plumbing on the kitchen sink.
Right now he is replacing the baseboard in the pantry. Our house is staying in tip top shape, that's for sure!!

I sure hope he never retires! Anybody need a handy man??

I have 5 one dollar bills to add to my challenge!
Prev. total $16,087.00
today 5.00
new total $16,092.00

    LOL Ima, I feel your pain! Mine is the exact same way. He wasn't allowed to work when he first came over to the US and he could only find part-time volunteer work he liked, so he nearly went crazy redecorating the house and going grocery shopping. I'm almost glad we hadn't gone on a budget yet then, so at least he wasn't hampered by that!

    hehe - i love having df home on weekends and public holidays, but if he is home when i get home, i find i hardly get anything done as we talk and hang out together and distract each other. usually i have a lot of things to do when i get home in the afternoons, like taking the dog for the walk, getting dinner ready and doing a couple of loads of washing.

    I have a co-worker who works as a temp because he drove his wife crazy after he retired. He really doesn't have to work. This guy used to be the highest paid engineer as a civilian on base and getting nice retirement. His house is paid for. His truck is paid for. When he retired, he didn't have anything to do and started all kinds of home projects that drove his wife crazy and he was told to do something else outside the house. I thought it was funny.

    I'm closer! I just need SOMETHING done with the hideous wood paneled wall in my living room.
