Happy Sunday Morning

Happy Sunday morning... My brain is looking at the mess surrounding me and asking, can I paint the walls in this living room and managed to put the house back together for Nick and his partner arrive on Friday?  More importantly, I am wondering if I can go and buy the paint tomorrow, and once Lar leaves for work on Tuesday, have the room painted before he gets home that night?  Now, that is the question.

I know that telling my hubby that I want to paint in here again so soon is going to earn a frown.  Perhaps even a NO.  But, the thing is, I don't want to hear a NO, and I don't want to see the frown, either.  Now, admittedly, choosing a new paint color isn't much.  I am married to a man who is color blind, so that isn't the issue.  It isn't about money, either.  He just worries about me taking on too much.  And, THAT is why he would frown and/or say NO.
I was wondering if this sort of 'thing' is common among us DD wives?  If we think we'll get a NO, do we try to work around it someway or that we can get our way?  What are your limits?  What lines do you dare and not dare to cross?

DD isn't meant to be an exercise in figuring out how to get our way, but on learning to communicate and live in harmony.  Granted, a new paint color isn't much, but I wonder how often I do things and then share afterwards?  This is something for thought...




  1. In all honesty, if I really want to do something like painting I tend to jump in there and ask for forgiveness later. I have also been known to weigh the consequences - will the spanking be worth getting to do what I really want to do? I think it boils down to me being spoiled and my dh being inconsistent.

  2. I would have to say yes that most of you gals would do it then fess up latter.
