husband builds custom homes, we live in a trailer!
I've been married 16 years to a mostly wonderful man -- good father, provider, easy temperament. I'm not a demanding person, but don't you think after 16 years of living in a dumpy trailer ('79 Marlette to be exact!) he could build us a house? When the subject comes up, he refuses to talk about it. All I want is something really basic, 1400 sq.ft. would be ample, much simpler than what he usually builds. It's not a money issue either. We have plenty. I know the saying "the cobblers children have no shoes...." but this is getting really old. I just don't understand why we are always last on his list. Today I just called and ordered some firewood to be delivered because I am tired of waiting for him to cut it. He will be furious but that's too bad. If something needs fixed, I will call a fix-it person. Does this sound unreasonable? He finds it insulting, like how would I feel if he hired a housekeeper...actually, I wouldn't mind one bit! Then, maybe we could go do something FUN for a change!
