My W talks about what "we need to do" so I ask he who does she have in her back pocket to do some of the work. My W wants to hire out most of the work because a professional would do it faster. I understand many women do not like a construction zone but to do some things correctly, it takes what ever time it takes and I am not going to cut corners and do lower quality work. No way!
Another issue is my W watches several home make-over programs and gets ideas in her head that it would be easy to do XYZ.
Hoping the relationship would get better, I entertained some of my W's up-dates, well I did a long time ago. Now I say no to some of the ideas she gets from the TV remodeling programs. Other ideas I just ignore. Yes, I am conflict avoidant to a degree.

worksforme2: Since our esteemed governor has declared a state of emergency here in NC (a total of 12 cases so far) the hording of toilet paper has begun. Is diarrhea a part of covid 19? I see Lowes and Home Depot have quick install toilet retro fit bidets.

petrushka: I've no idea what it is with the toilet paper hoarding. I walked out of a supermarket yesterday and saw a woman with the jumbo sized trolley and some 4x 18 roll packs of toilet paper. Nuts. Completely nuts. Incidentally, a bidet is definitely the way to go

petrushka: One of my favourite quotes for the last 30 years: "don't ever look a sheep in the eyes, the intellectual vacuum may suck your brains out". Well, let's all drink to the sheeple! (besides, alcohol is a good disinfectant).

worksforme2: Hey tamara68, there is a covid19 positive cat in Belgium, watch out for it.

tamara68: @worksforme I think I have to be more careful for all infected people. Most likely I already have Covid19
