There are a few things that drive him nuts, and he is usually really good at gently but firmly talking to me about them and helping me get back on track.
Example of his tolerance: There is still a giant pile of mulch in the driveway I promised to move to the backyard. I have stuck the stakes in the ground for the mulch holder, and that is where that project ended in oh.......November? I'm GONNA DO IT!!! I really am!!
Example of his intolerance: The empty frames in the living room. I blogged about them in 2013. YES 2013 SHEESH GET OFF MY BACK!!! http://thecolloquialtimes.blogspot.com/2013/03/yeahempty-frames.html
They drive him nuts, but I pretty much don't even see them any more. I DO (really - I do) constantly look at pictures of frame galleries on pinterest and think about what I may want to do. But I can't commit. PART of the reason is that when I do think I may like something, I don't think he will, so I do nothing.
