Trust me next time !

A couple weeks ago I convinced Hubba it was time to retire his old recliner.
Like an old pair of shoes he was very reluctant, but finally agreed and we went shopping.
We found 2 matching rocker recliners and ordered them.
I then decided I wanted the living room painted walls and ceiling.
I told Hubba we needed to find some one to do it,
"No", he said, "I can do it."

Granted he is a perfectionist, but a little slower these days.
OK, I went to get the paint.
He started on Thursday and painted all day, it was obvious to me when he finished it needed another coat
So on Friday he got more paint and redid the walls.
He could not see the areas he had missed so I had to point them out and
Saturday after he finished the ceiling I took the roller and redid areas he missed
again.
His vision is excellent, but his color concept isn't and he doesn't see different shades of the same color.

Now that it is finished, he said next time we'll find someone.

Men are funny, just like kids sometimes, you can't tell them anything.

ha. I know. I would rather pay someone too--than hear my hubby get frustrated about what he's doing. (He's a perfectionist too!)

I have my Dad's Bishop platform rocker from 1950, along with his hassock. He recovered them twice, and it's due again. Since my wife had her hip and knee replaced she has taken the chair over from me, and any mention of replacing it is met with "you will NOT".

So I guess I get to figure out how to rebuild it and recover it...

I can remember taking naps curled across the arms of it when I was little; I remember vacating it the minute he walked into the room as a teen (so did anyone else who was in it)!

Now it's my wife who naps in it...

:o)

I think men decide to do things, their stubborn streak keeps them doing it all the way through, and their true side decides ok, been there done that don't need to do it again!!!!

My name is Mrs. favour jeffry,From USA ,and I’m happily married with a lovely husband and three children.I had a very big problem with my husband few months ago,to the extent that he even packed his things away from our house. He left I and my kids for almost 5 months,and i tried all my possible best and effort to bring him back.I discussed it with a very good friend of mine,and he gave me an advice concerning a spell caster, that he is the only one that can handle my situations and problem,that he’s always ready and able to do anything related to spell casting and helping of the needy, Pls every one i would like you all to contact him with his email address,which is as follows.”drsmartspellhome@gmail.com". I never believed in spell casting,but My friend convinced me and i had no choice than to follow my friend advice,because i never dreamed of loosing my lovely Husband. And i contacted him with his email address,and i discussed with him all my problems and worries and so surprisingly,he told me that I’ll get my husband back a day after. I didn't believed Him, until when i got home,the next day,my husband called me to inform me that he is coming back home…..So Amazing!! That’s how i got my back through spell casting and our relationship was stronger than ever. One of the price i was asked to pay was to tell it to the people around me that problems like this,can always be solved by Dr. smart. So! my advice to you out there is to visit this same E-mail address,and tell him your problems too,if you are in any condition related to love issue or getting your ex back or and problem at all, pls Contact him and have a happy life. you can contact him via email (drsmartspellhome@gmail.com ) all you can call him +2348104933655.
