Stone garden border project… day 2, disagreement 2.

.

I was helping.

.

.

In so far as the husband would let me help… with what was my idea to begin with. That’s usually how things go at Casa River. I want to do something and come up with a plan… then the husband gets involved and does it completely his way.

Granted he knows more about stone wall building… but I had a vision ya know?

.

.

I like weird looking rocks, like this bird’s head skeleton I placed in the corner ….

.

.

And these two that look like ham steaks. I wanted them prominently placed to give the border some quirk and character.

.

.

So of course the husband moved all three and buried them. When I said something? He got ticked off and told me I can let him build it or hire someone else to do exactly what I want… and believe me that’s tempting.

I love my husband. I do. He’s a wonderful man. But it would be nice if we could a work project together… in harmony, like we used to. Whether it’s male menopause, adjusting to retired life or basic old man crankiness .. lately he tests my patience to the point where I just have to walk away. Why must every difference of opinion turn into a fight? It’s exhausting.

Do you work well with your spouse/significant other. Or do you have to take a hike as well?
