I love my husband to death, I truly do, but since he's been laid off he's been driving me nuts, and I'm sure he feels the same way about me!

My husband and I are opposites in every way; I'm an introvert, he's an extrovert. He is go, go, go, I am stay, stay, stay. He is persnickety, I am relaxed and easygoing. This typically works, but since he's been home we're driving each other up the wall. The majority of the day he runs around like a chicken with he head cut off saying, 'I'm bored! I need a project! This is boring!'

He has a FOURTH interview with the same company on Monday, so fingers crossed! 

So how do you feel? All the time or sometimes?

Ditto! We've had several occasions where he's been injured and on medical leave from work for months at a time and we LOVE those times...aside from him being in pain and all,lol.When I had our daughter he took 6 wks off work.We hated when it was time for him to go back.And most recently he had back surgery and was out of work for almost 2 months.I missed him so much when he wasn't with me all day :(

My limit is two days. He is attached to my hip when he's not working. (Ok ok. Maybe I'm exaggerating)
But seriously. No please god no.

Mine works from home and I'm a SAHM...we're together 99% of the time. It doesn't bother either of us at all... he's worked from home for the past 10 years and I've been a SAHM for 6 since we adopted our eldest dd. After 22 years together, it doesn't bother us to be around each other all the time.

No, I would kill him. I love the man but after a couple of days he's got to go.

I would go crazy if I was around my husband 24/7! LOL

I love him and we get along great but I don't see how anyone could be around another person literally 24/7!  I enjoy having a little time away here and there, makes me miss and appreciate him more :)

It depends on the days. He has 3 days off each week. Most of the time we are good together. But there are times when I'm like "I need to go to the store for…" and he'll go to the store for me and I'll actually get something done.

 DH was unemployed for 15 months(he was laid off), and I did enjoy having him home. He did help out though, on the days when he was not doing odd jobs out of the house. The only complaint I had was that I got lazy when he was home,lol. It was so easy to be like...oh DH is home, he will get up with the kids. I got out of my normal routine and it was hard getting back into it once he got a job again.
