COVID & morning part 2

Thursday, October 22, 2020

good morning - what a day yesterday. DH is very stubborn and spent most of the day in his office watching TV - not talking. In the evening, he calmed down. I reassured him that COVID is a threat to our lovely future of traveling during the twilight of our lives. He says he just wanted to help our son and did not even think about COVID. So how it stands, he said he would stay in the truck and have the others much younger load and unload the furniture. I know my DH - I would not bet my life on him staying in the truck and seeing the younger people load and unload. I also told him to remember COVID can kill us both. DH will be wearing an N95 mask. emoticon DH did tell me that he needs my advice this morning on the water feature - we both designed for his layout. We are going to add swimmers to the water before he pours. I am a planner and like to think about a design before you execute it. This water feature is going to have a beach area, fishing, and boating area. DH spent quite a bit of time on his train layout doing more wiring of lights. that is what he is really good at. Overall I have let go of the move situation. DH knows my position. He could severely hurt himself carrying furniture at his age. He has to think about his emoticon future. A serious injury or/and COVID could damage our future plans. He knows this. I have let go. emoticon

    I have to say that I agree with 1CRAZYDOG about having your DH shower, change/wash his clothes when he gets home. My daughter does supply teaching when teachers are out sick and I babysit her wee one. When she comes to our house, she showers/shampoos and bags her clothing before picking up the baby. Such strange times make us all a bit paranoid!

    I think MISSUSRIVERRAT has it right. I think men definitely get depressed, unreaslistic and sort of desperate as they get older. They don't want to admit they're getting older. Well, women don't either, but . . . it's factual . . . we do, and women generally are better at adapting to it than men.

    You let DH know how you felt, which is the right thing to do. Now, he has to follow through. I am with you . . . wouldn't bet my life on DH staying in the truck and letting the young ones move the furniture.

    I would insist, though, that when he gets home he shower and change and launder the clothes he wore. YU u don't need to get sick!

    HUGS and good luck.

    I wasn't able to control my husband. I think they get a bit depressed, unrealistic, and desperate as they get older.. For example, he would go down on the dock and try to accomplish all kinds of things. Sometimes he asked for my help. He fell in the river onto a log hitting his back and hurting himself Since he had hip waders on, he not only hurt his back, he could have drown. There is a swift current in the river. I felt he made foolish decisions which could have and did affect both of us. I have no suggestions. But there is only so much you can do to control another adult who is making bad decisions.
