Shhhhh it's a secret

I'll let you in on a secret. Between the 7 day stretches hubs works he really really really doesn't look forward to my honey-do list. On the top of his not really favorite? Well right now that would be the paint stripping. You really have to know my personality. Once I'm set on something, it's going to happen, even if I have to burn the house down with the heat gun. (Of course I'd save the ankle biters and the parrots. The mop of a dog, well...) So he's looking at my wanting the paint removed off the stairs as a snowball effect. Ok it's going to start with the stairs, then she's going to need the baseboard removed, or she's going to need a ride to the ER because she put the crowbar through her hand, again. Then that moves to the trim around the window by the stairs, which now doesn't match any of the other windows. At this point he sighs and goes out the garage to gage the amount of paint stripper we have and will it really kill the birds? He can only hope. (The amazon likes to scream like an amazon while hubs sleeps.)
So let's all hope that the damn snow in Hicksville, Wisconsin melts soon! I want to break out the heavy duty strippers and keep the parrots alive!

Perhaps you could cut a deal with the significant other some of his hard work for something he really wants. 7 day stretches at work really can take their toll. Sometimes Kim looks at me like I'm nuts when I want to tackle a home project on a weeknight-particularly if the kids have been difficult that day ;-)
