Wednesday, Sheldon Cooper is upset....

     Hubs (Sheldon) is grouchy and I guess I don't blame him.  He is a creature of habit and I have ruined his habitat.  Actually it is getting to me also, and I am not sure what to do about it. We (actually I) have the whole darn house torn up with the painting and fixing.  There is not a room to peacefully go into that has not been touched in some way.  Hubs is a creature of habit and he cannot tolerate change well.  I have moved all the furniture to one end of the very large living room so the painter can do one end at a time.  Hubs spot is now in another spot.  How can he read? How can he function?  But after getting frustrated (actually angry) with him, I realized I am bothered also.

Mom's room is well destroyed and full of doors now.  I will be painting one at a time as I can do this and save money.  I need to get the sawhorses and I don't dare ask Hubs.
 My brilliant idea was to paint these in mom's room as the carpet is destroyed and it is warmer than the garage.  Great idea but now there are no doors upstairs and that is awkward. I did leave the door on the spare bath.  So I really need to at least get the door to the master done today. I don't know why I can't think ahead better.  I just run full speed with an idea and some times those ideas are ..... less than stellar.
 Hubs has a procedure today at the doctor so we are not taking the babies.  But I still have to take a meal in and I am having trouble with too many irons in the fire, so I guess Hubs angst is also mine.  I just react in a different way.  I think the fixtures that go above the sinks in the master bath turned out great and now I just have to get the handyman to put them back up.

This house is really a mess and I do need to do something about it.  As in clean and at least have a surface that is not covered in crap.

1. master bath needs to be put back together as much as possible and then get the door back on so Hub's has some sort of sanctuary.

2. the spare bath upstairs has large furnace vents that I am half done cleaning and it is filthy.  I need to get those done and stacked so we can at least have one bathroom that is okay.

3. I need to clean the downstairs bath of paint crap and use the slop sink in the laundry.

4. Spare room has rugs and pictures all over but needs to be better organized so it functions.

5. As hubs has been cleaning the kitchen nothing is really clean and put away, which drives me crazy.
 so I need to get up there and clean and organize his efforts.  He also has a huge steel head to fillet and gut so I am letting him do that before I get in there and Kim clean.

6. I can't do anything about the family room with all the furniture from mom's room until the carpet is laid.

7. I think I will make a nice dinner and dessert for hub's and my friends while I am cleaning the kitchen, this will help him feel better.

8. I need to pick up the oldest little and take her to dance class at about 4:30.

9. Maybe get in a little sewing?  

My day is planned,  what are you going to do?

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.



  1. Men do feel and function better when they are well-fed. His sanctuary...master bath? Funny! It does sound like you have a mess there. I feel for you because you now have to put it all back together. However, it will be done and look nice.

    1. It is taking forever, I swear if this guy does not pick up a paint brush today....

  2. My goodness, I got tired just reading all this!!. God bless you Kim !!

  3. you sound like you are living in our home when we bought it. I made a small area in the barn we could retreat to.... If this is bothering him now, what is he going to do when you sell the house?

    1. It is going to be very hard. Hubs is brilliant and talented but probably high functioning asbergers.

  4. Have you tried singing "Soft Kitty" to him?
