And If I was allowed near toolbox I would but he keeps telling me no its grand I will do it THE WEEKEND!! 🙄 So next weekend im gonna do it all! 😆July 24, 2008 at 2:47 pm #64332ed1Participant
My hubby is like that. I seem to spend all my time reminding him that something has to be done.
And when he does do something he never cleans up after himself and the tool box could be left out for weeks before he will finally move it. 🙄 🙄July 24, 2008 at 2:58 pm #64333
I thought I was the only one! 😆
Ive just printed out that list and put it on the fridge door 😆 😆July 24, 2008 at 3:07 pm #64334munchinParticipant
happy as you know my hubby works at construction too and i have a permanent list for him to finish – have resigned myself to fact i’ll always be waiting!!!!!!! 😆 😆 my best friends hubby is tiler and she’s the same can never get him to do anything in their house!
we’re never happy though i have my lovely lean-to but have to keep at him to keep clean now as babs goes out through it to the back and he thinks it’s an extension of his shed instead of the house 😆 😆July 25, 2008 at 8:29 am #64345MaryEMember
My husbands the same.
He has all the trades but never uses them at home.
He was great when we first got house, painted a room in a night, tiled the bathroom in a weekend, put a deck down in a few evenings but the enthusiasm is gone. He doesn’t even see the work that needs to be done. He thinks are house is grand, actually he thinks it is great but it is nearly seven years since we moved in and everthing need to be updated/ repainted etc. The house is grubby. He starts jobs but doesn’t finish them & leaves them so long that he doesn’t notice them anymore & wonders what i’m moaning about.
Then his excuse is that he doesn’t have time with working & the baby but finds time to train every night, yes i said every night.
He always says this jobs are little things & will be done in no time, but he never does them.
I make list but he ignores them. He thinks that they are funny. he actually shows them to people when they visit, he is not embarrassed by them at all, he thinks that i should be embarrassed for writing them!!!
A few times i have employed people to do the jobs which really annoys him, paying money for things he can do but he gets over it & i am happy because the job is done.
Sounds like i’m bitching behind his back but we have this disscussion about once a week, so it is nothing that i don’t say regularly to his face.
If he didn’t make me laugh so much, i would kill him sometimes.July 25, 2008 at 8:35 am #64348Taylor5Member
Edel I could have typed your post, we are in the house the very same atyourself and it all needs to be freshened up but dh doesnt see this….. we have baby on the way in 15weeks and he still hasnt done any of the painting 🙄
He did buy the paint the other day and left it in the middle of the kitchen, which ds is using as a stool and Im tripping over it every few minutes
But like you say if you didnt love them so much you’d kill themJuly 25, 2008 at 11:11 am #64354
