    Ohhh I am so frustarated with Everton right now. We moved into a new house just over a year ago and we have painted every room except for Bria's room and our hallway, it's a two story wall so it is a big job. well Bria has been really upset that her room has not been finished, the paint has been bought for a year, but her father just doesn't have time. Everton works 12 hour days, rarely takes a day off and with his health problems, painting is last on his lists of priorities. Well we have a really good friend who is laid off right now, and has been bored for the past 3 weeks so he calls last night and says he wants to come over tomorrow to paint Bria's room. Well I think this is great, yeahhh, when Bria arrives this weekend it would be so nice to show her a finished room, but no it isn't going to happen because my husband says no way is another guy coming into his home to paint. Omg get over yourself! I can't believe he would rather Bria not have a finished room, which is a issue for her because she feels less important then the rest of the kids, then let one of our best friends come over and paint. So I get mad and tell him he is absolutely ridiculous and it makes no sense to me, he says it's a guy thing, well I think it's a stupid ego thing! Uggg men!

      Oh Kellly I would be frustrated too. Seriously, what is more important, Bria being happy or your Ego?

      Maybe you can let him cool down and re-present the situation in a way that is focused only on Bria?

      yuck - men are crazy sometimes

        Total ego thing you should give him a choice the friend does it OR he finds someone else to do it. Poor lil thing just wants a painted room

        ugh men. my FI would totally do the same thing. if its a one day job, i say have your friend do it, pay him, and when everton gets home, its done, end of story. the last thing you want is for bria to feel less important! bria's feelings are more important than everton's bruised ego IMHO

          That is being very selfish of him. Sounds like a pride thing if you ask me. He totally needs to get over it and get some help. Poor Bria deserves a nice painted room. Does he know she is upset about it? Maybe that would encourage him to let this buddy do it. That is very generous of the friend to offer.

            Sorry Kelly. Men are a PITA sometimes. Cain tried and failed horribly at putting up crown molding in our home, so he wants to hire someone, so a family member has a friend that said he would do it for real cheap and a case of beer. I'm thinking "GREAT" but Cain want to hire someone and pay them real money, for reasons I still don't understand.
            Guys are weird... :-)

              Ugh, Kelly, that really sucks. Tell him to get over himself. Tell him to think of how happy Bria will be when she gets there this weekend and sees her newly painted room.

                    Im sorry!! Our boys can be a major PITA sometimes...
                    Are you going to try adressing it later with him.... maybe it will sink in a little and he will get over it.
