you might want to have a marriage counselor present!
I should know better.
Anything that involves nails, a hammer, a man, a woman, deciding on proper picture arrangement, and putting holes in the wall is a sure way to find yourself in divorce court!
If you are puzzled because you can't imagine why this is a difficult situation, then let me just paint the picture for you.
(ha, look at me, a pun!!)
Me: We need to get all these pictures hung up today.
Him: What? You didn't tell me that!
Me: Yes, we talked about it last night.
Him: I don't think so.
(As you can see, this is going really well from the start!)
Me: Layed out all the pictures/decor to be put up in son's room.
Him: Comes up to room with drill, hammer, and wall hanging stuff.
Me: I was thinking about this here, that there, etc. What do you think?
(Yes, I know, mistake #1 is asking his decorating opinion! He thinks This Old House. I think Divine Design.)
It went on like this for some time. I won't alarm you with the details.
There might have been yelling involved. Yikes!
We got most everything hung up in our son's room, but at one point, I just put the last few things back in the closet and was ready to call it quits. I was overwhelmed with making decorating decisions.
With a man.
We then moved on to the hallway. A simple lining up of our kids' annual pictures down the hall. All in like-minded black frames. No big deal!
By the end of the task, it was comical.
Each picture ended up 1/2 inch higher than the last. Despite a yard stick, a leveler, and two intelligent adults.
Well, maybe one.
We would love to have you come admire our finished work!
Just don't do the picture-tilt test!
Looks can be deceiving!
