Renovating and Marriage. Lessons Learned.

Yesterday, I shared with you all of the amazing changes that have been happening at casa de Gwen.  But, now it's time to dish the dirt.

Oh, you thought these things were all easy breezy, did you now?

That the Hubs and I worked all hand in hand, smiling and laughing and all lovey dovey, during this process.

Yeah, ok.

Now, I love my Husband. With every fiber of my being.  But, there are a few things that doing "home improvement projects" together make you realize. 

  • There is no way on Earth, that we could ever work together. Ever. {Unless there was a water cooler FULL of booze}
  • Booze SHOULD always be involved during said Projects. {And probably best to keep all sharp objects away from each other :)
  • Home improvements does NOT promote sexy time. Like, ever. Let's just be happy that we are getting into the same bed that night, hmmm-k?
  • I think I'm the boss. You think you're the boss. You're not the boss of me. And I'm not the boss of you. {insert stomping of the feet like a 5 yr old here}
  • "Stomping of the feet" happens... A LOT.  From both parties.
  • Do NOT ask for opinions if you don't want to hear any other than your own. {Just say out loud that you want to hear what a beautiful and amazing job that was. And that was the most ingenious idea. ever.}
  • A fight could arise about AN-Y-THING. Measurements. Tape. Paint. The way you are painting. Your tone of voice. Who gets to use the fancy step stool as opposed to just a chair. lol

This is why I think most couples end up doing all this stuff during the Newlywed stage.  You're all mushy-gushy, high-fiving each other, "yes, honey-ing" it up. Yeah, check back with me in a few years.

At the end of the day, Hubs, the house looks amazing, I still love you, and we're both still alive... win win, right?!?
{Truth be told, it wasn't that bad. But it WAS pretty damn funny!}
