When husbands want Just That One Thing...
and it goes against your vision, how has that worked out for you?
That dilemma crops up regularly. It can be a tile or a granite or a honking big fridge that just doesn't work with your vision. Often the husband cares little about the kitchen in general but has to have that one thing. Do you just pray it won't be a disaster and let him have it because he really wants it? Is there ever any dissuading him or will it only cause him to dig in his heels? Have you ever been pleasantly surprised and ended up liking his choice? My sense is that it probably seldom ends well.
I ask because I may have a backsplash in my future dotted with little mosaic accent squares. I know it's because he hasn't noticed a backsplash since 1995, and he'll probably like something else when we start looking.
Last but not least, when will the PNW thaw out so I can get out of this house?? Day 5 of the "big" snowstorm.
