Why I no longer listen to my husband.

Nearly a year ago, Donald got it into his head that he would take one week off from work and install hard wood flooring throughout our entire house. Although I did not initially share my husband’s optimism, that shit is contagious. I mean, if he honestly thought it would only take a week, then who was I to disagree? Maybe he was right. How hard could flooring really be?

What I’m trying to say is that I followed the man like a fool, like a lamb to the slaughter.

This is my favorite image from the entire saga, a photograph of him laying the last few boards in our front door entryway THREE MONTHS after we started the project.
