    Seconded

    time travel...
    The dark chocolate covered pineapple picture posted previously looked practically perfect.

    I completely understand. What frustrates me is when DW wants to paint to change the look of a room but doesn't want to change it too much. If I'm gonna spend the weekend painting, rooms are going from off-white to blue or something, not from off-white to antique white. If we leave the paint up long enough, the off-white will become antique white.

    We all have our idiosyncrasies, to paraphrase Sleepless and Seattle (yes, I realize my man card was just revoked) Love is just two neurosis knowing they are a perfect match.

    So your saying I'm not alone? :scared1:

    Possibly. Does your sister in law live in central Connecticut? :confused3



    I know she is going to a beige to a beige like color. :sad:

    That's the thing... she has the neurosis and I'm just 'normal' :woohoo: :lmao::lmao:

    You're not alone. My SIL isn't in Connecticut but a lot of wives seem to think they are on HGTV and want to change the house every couple of years.

    If I painted/added something/took away something and it wasn't working, I have no problem changing. But moving the drying rack from one side of the sink to the other, or moving towels from one shelf to another or going from off white to an 'off-er' white is just ridiculous. :faint:

    I feel your pain. About once every couple of years she goes through the cupboard and tosses most of the Tupperware only to replace it with half of the new catalog. :confused3

    Pineapple works better for adding to hot foods.

    It introduces a new level of Sheer Awesomeness never before seen on this earth. I actually had bacon-wrapped pineapple as an appetizer at my cousin's wedding reception. I may have cried a little.


    Sorry, Tim. I can see where that can drive you crazy. Men only know 9 colors anyway, so we would never be able to tell the difference between shades of off-white.

    I think I would just refuse unless she allows the hallway to be bright orange. Or, let Juliana and Christopher pick the colors.

    How fast do you think that painting job would get done if she said she wanted it Giants blue and red? :confused3 :rotfl:

    That might just be potent enough to be declared a controlled substance.
    :lmao:



    I get out of repainting for no good reason by pleading poverty.

    If that doesn’t work then you point out that we need to pick between either this household “upgrade” and traveling (meaning Disney).
    That one generally works

    Tim, you could have just simplified your post like this:

    I am married!

    That's funny right there. :rotfl2::lmao::rotfl2::lmao:

    I'll keep that in mind when DW wants to cover up DD's "artwork" on the walls.

    That'd be funny if it wasn't true.

    Secret is safe with me. Wild horses couldn't drag it out of me. Especially when I meet Mel in January. Nope, not going to mention a word. Oh, and thanks for picking up the check at Via Napoli.

    Tim, the first rule of keeping something on the DL from your wife is not telling your nemesis's's's's trainer or coach or whatever he calls himself.
