A Tiff

Mike and I got in a bit of an argument last night at the house. I got out of work late and he was frustrated with working alone. Turns out that he made a mistake when putting on the PT (pressure treated wood) on the foundation for the sill. He wouldn't really elaborate. Plus he had lent out his air hose and some other tools that he needed.

I chimed in because I was really worried about the windows and the cracks and everything else noted in previous posts. Mike was frustrated that we weren't getting enough done. I agreed, but pointed out that we together decided to take the holiday weekend off from house work.

It's hard to cope when tensions get high. You just have to try and keep going. We'll both be there tonight, finishing that sill. I hope it goes well.

I'm convinced that large, difficult, home improvement projects are bad for relationships. Sometimes we find it's worth it to pay somebody to do things that would just make us grumpy and irritable and generally unpleasant to be around.

Amen to that. I think it can go both ways though - it'll either bring you together or tear you apart. Our project has done both in different stages. As it comes near to completion, I think there's more coming together though. It's like, the home stretch.
