Do you avoid doing home projects with your DH?

I swear I am going to swear off doing them with my the plague. He is so temperamental and mouthy when we're doing even a simple task. I always tell him, I'm glad this is not our first date, because you wouldn't see a second one. It's kinda funny in a way because it is so childish but stressful. I'm usually not even in the wrong...just not doing it right or fast enough. LOL.

  • Lol. For the most part, yes. We have very diffferent working styles and special skills. For us it is better if we work solo towards the same goal. If we need each others help that's different. Nanixh- I am still repainting my sweeties last painting job. You are not alone.. :-)

  • Mine is always going to do things around the house , but it is all words and no action . He is the Prince of Procrastination. We spent a year in our present home waiting for him to hang pictures , many promises , nothing doing , so I did it . If you want anything doing , do it yourself is my motto. He is a good parent, lover and cook but anything else .....forget it .

  • We don't do home projects together. We don't even clean in the same room the other is cleaning. We've learned to pick the fights that are worth it, and we do some things so completely differently that there is just no use in trying. Then after we are done with whatever we're doing, we watch a movie or have some "us" time. Our "us" time is better left reserved for the fun things. =)

  • Nope and we have the stupid arguements to but they usually always make for a funny story later.

  • I can't stand painting with my husband. We did the girls bedroom a couple months back and he's all hurry hurry and does sloppy work which gets on my nerves because if you take your time and do it right the first time then you don't have to go back and fix what was messed up. So the whole 2 days we were painting I was bitching at him and he was getting fed up with me bitching. It was fun. I told him the next project that involves painting, I'll just do it myself.
