- Wedding: September 2009
Well, it’s Easter Sunday, and do you want to know what MY Darling Husband has planned? A trip to home depot to rent scaffolding to install a ceiling fan and order flooring for the nursery, which I’m pretty sure he plans to work on all day. And it’s not just today ladies, it’s EVERY. SINGLE. DAY he has off from work that he’s working on some home project. Don’t get me wrong, I love that he’s so super handy (there’s almost nothing he can’t do around the house) but geeze louise has he taken on WAY too many home projects for right now. I never even see him anymore when he’s home 🙁 He works all day and waits for dinner time (6:30) to even come down and spend time with me. I go to bed at 8:30, so that’s a whopping TWO hours with him ON his days off. I’m getting so frustrated bc he just keeps taking on more projects, most of which I’m totally okay if they don’t get done ANYTIME soon. Just to give you an idea, he’s currently working on:
1.) Huge nursery project, paint nursery, rip out old carpet, install new wood flooring, paint and install crown moulding, sand and paint, doors and windowsills, replace blinds. (This is the only thing that actually has a deadline… but it’s 17 weeks away).
2.) Install new ceiling fan in living room (which has VAULTED ceilings).
3.) Purchase and install new Whole House Air Conditioning system, which requires refinancing our home.
4.) Replace the sprinkler system in our yard, plant rosebushes and patch lawn.
5.) Replace Kitchen Sink and Faucet.
Yesterday he came home and immediately started replacing a lock/doorknob that we never use – like I didn’t even know it was even broken. It’s always something, and he INSISTS it all HAS to be done 🙁
Even when I do get him on the couch to watch some TV with me during the day, he complains he can’t sit and watch TV all day and gets mad bc there isn’t a whole lot else I can do or enjoy doing at 5.5 months pregnant. I just don’t know what to do… I’m home alone all day, starved for attention and going crazy. Even when I tell him this it accomplishes nothing. He tells me I need friends, but I JUST moved across the country for his job in November (bc he really wanted to move to CO), leaving, the bulk of my business, and my few friends and family members in PA behind. I just feel like I can’t win, and don’t know what to say to get through. 🙁
