My Husband May Be Addicted...

.... to spackle.

I can't make him stop. He's re-texturizing the entire basement. He says that he wants the seams in the drywall to be perfect, but I think it must have some secret ingredient and he's getting some sort of contact high. He's already redone the hallways upstairs. And repainted the entire upstairs.

The terribly ironic part is that we're moving. Trying to move anyway. We've made an offer on another house. That house is a "short-sale" which means the bank has a 3 MONTHS to tell us whether or not they'll accept our offer. The good side of that is it means we have time to try to sell our house. The bad side of that is it means Brent can keep redoing all the things that have apparently been secretly driving him crazy.

Apparently he could live with them but he can't bear the thought of someone ELSE living with them.

It's completely awesome to be married to someone who can fix and build and do things. Except for the part with the drywall dust.

Please excuse our mess... Brent's renovating.

I love your man. I LOVE TO SPACKLE!!!! It is addicting. Our puppies chewed numerous holes in our utility room walls and I almost pray for new holes because I LOVE TO SPACKLE TOO! I never realized until I saw it in print, but I am scary.

DW dust is better now than when your kiddos are home. ;0) We will pray that everything will fall into place the way you need it to be. If you need any help with anything...moving whatever just let us know. With love, ~Mare

Geez! Good luck with the new house or offer on the new house, and with selling your newly re-spackled residence too.
(We're 5 months into a 'short sale' and still not under contract. We are the preferred offer, just haven't got anything signed to prove it!
I'm running short of patient by now and wonder if I can wait any longer!!!)
