This is what happens when

he retires, lol!  Look out ladies because these men can get bored, lol.
He's all thinking we need a new vacuum.
Dh vacuums and then I mop behind him.  We have almost the entire downstairs with huge tiles so we have to vacuum and mop it all. 
I've learned from using our Dyson for the last 9yrs that I have to start on carpet before going to bare floors or it won't pick up anything.  This is just something that I've learned about mine.
He now thinks it's just not working anymore and we need a new one.  He is currently watching a video about the Shark. LOL!!!
Ok he's already had someone come out here for an estimate for a new water heater and to give us an estimate for a water leak.  They were way tooooo expensive.  He has someone coming to install a new water heater because that same plumber told him we need to replace them.  He has someone cheaper coming out to fix the water leak too.

He'd like to get a new microwave/convection cooker.  He'd replace the stove even thought it still works.

My point is that he is obsessed with fixing, researching and replacing things. LOL!!!

I understand that we have a roof leak from all the patching jobs.  We paid professionals to come out to patch the roof but their jobs didn't last much longer than dh's.  I just think it should be 2nd on the list to fix.  Sure the water leak should be number 1 but we have mold growing in the upstairs ceiling from where the roof has been patched.
I'll be sure to tell him what I think the priorities should be tomorrow.
I'm actually not complaining.  I think it's funny that he's in this fix it mode all at once.  I love that he's so helpful around here but I think he's bored even if he doesn't realize it.

Sorry for the long read but a lot has been going down, lol.

Right!!!  LOL!!!!
He's still young just being 44.  His promised job didn't come through so that's why he's home.  He's liking being home though.  I thought I'd strangle him after the first 2 weeks but we've found a rhythm ;)

He's just all up into fixing and replacing things.  He'd be all up on a project that I wanted.  It's a good thing I guess.  I need to stop being lazy.

We have a spray painter but I don't know what kind it is.  We actually spray painted with it for ds's furniture so it would last through the teen years but we ended up getting him a new bed.  It worked ;)
