    Default OMG the day before Thanksgiving.

    We have my family coming over for Thanksgiving…I have a million things to do…and because he had the day off today my husband decides he is going to start a big Lego project. On the dining room table.

    And I will ask him to move it, but…it will probably end up being me who has to move the damn thing.

    BTW…he told me this was his Thanksgiving project and I told him to wait until after Thursday to start it. Apparently he heard wait until after the dining room is cleaned for Thanksgiving…which is just was a few hours ago…

    That is all…

    Oof!!! I just put out a card table for our Legos (Hogsmeade to add to our other holiday Lego set up!). Currently, we have a multiphase board game on our dining room table but I’m hoping we play tonight hence why I haven’t put it away yet.
    Good luck to you!!

    Whoa! Saying a prayer for your DH’s safety. What was he thinking??? Where did he think you’d be eating tomorrow?

    Passive aggressive me would want to leave it on the table and let him figure out tomorrow where everyone is supposed to eat. Anorher perfect example of mental load inequality.

    This made me laugh!! Yep--get all the dishes out and tell him to set the table.

    Glad to see that he thought it through & moved it long enough for the big meal!
