The Hardest Conversation

I was prompted by Mama Kat at Mama's Losin' It! blog to do a little writing today. I was going to do it last night but I passed out on the couch, was able to sleepwalk to my bed, and then pass back out. She has a Writer's Workshop each week and gives prompts for you to explore your creative writing side. I chose to write about a difficult conversation. Now this conversation has not happened yet, but I imagine it will go something like this.

Me: "Honey we really need to update the downstairs bath to match the rest of the house"
Steve: "You're kidding me right?"
Me: "Ummm not really. It doesn't match the look we have going with the rest of the place"
Steve: "It's fine!"
Me: "Sure if we live in a lodge, which we don't! We live in a Victorian Cottage"
Steve: "And just where do you think we are going to get the money to do this?"
Me: "I am just talking about some new tile, paint and some crown moulding"
Steve: (insert exasperated sigh here and imagine him walking off)
Me: "I'll help" (yelling as he walks into the next room)
Steve: (insert mumbling here)

Maybe if I insert pictures like these on a daily basis I can wear him down?

Found your blog through the Writer's Workshop.

Good luck with the remodel! Your husband sounds like mine, only we usually get halfway through the project, then stall, then the exasperated sighs come. : )
