Homer now wants add a PS3 to the fray. Oh, and the bookcase went from being 8 feet long to 11.5 feet long and is now completely new. And we're now looking at moving the craft cabinet downstairs and putting the old bookcase back against the other wall. So we'll have two full walls of bookcases. We also have two full walls of bookcases downstairs, one in the kitchen, and several smaller bookcases spread around the house.

We'll have at least one desk in there, maybe two for the girls, and a couple chairs. Oh, and he's buying the girls new chairs.

I suggest that what Homer needs is a hobby or activity that involves him being out of the house most of the day. Working at the local foodbank, driving cancer patients to treatments, tutoring kids who are flunking, being a Big Brother, anything you can think of.

did you take 'before' shots? I'd love to see the 'after' ones.

Homer already works fulltime and has several hobbies. Unfortunately, it seems two of those hobbies are spending money and giving me a "Honey Do" list. I haven't figured out how come I keep getting the Honey Do list. I know we have role reversal, but this is getting old fast.

P.S. On our honeymoon, I went to the casino, and he went shopping.

Not really, the closest I have are the two middle pictures in this are both "before" pictures:

The titles "Shan and Jake", and "Jake and Lars running the robot" are both in the front room. Because it was only supposed to be replacing the flooring, it didn't occur to me to take pictures. If we even finish it, I'll take some "after" shots.

My husband also collects furniture. We spent today rearranging some of the furniture in the house. We gave away a full-sized adult desk, two end tables, and two smaller bookcases. We still have 5 desks, we gave away 2 full sized desks with hutches 2 months ago, and I counted today and we have a total of 6 full wall-sized bookcases, all of which Homer built. This is not including the one we are building now. A couple years ago, I counted and we had 11 desks. We gave his sister a full size dining room table. It's bad when you can change the furniture out in your house by simply going into the garage. My friend was astounded by some of the stuff we have in the garage. She said, "You have a queen mattress back there - and it's still in the wrapping!!" We've completely furnished 2 houses besides our own so far, and now we're working on a third. Every time I start purging furniture, he either builds or buys more. He's worse than a female. Now he's considering a new china hutch. The one we have does not sit flat, so rather than fix it, he wants to build or buy a bigger, better, badder new one, and he wants a new piano for the girls, or at least a new used one. I agree with him on that. The one we have plays, but not well. It's good for beginners, but the girls are past being beginners. They really need a nicer piano.

Welcome to life with a furniture packrat.

Maybe we should set our husbands up. Mine loves to do the projects. They sound like the perfect couple. :)
