5 phases in the life of a home project

  1. Project X: discovery and transfer to mud room ("You can't keep that on the kitchen table!")
  2. Distraction of husband with Projects W, T, and F
  3. Transfer of X to cardboard box ("You never have time for that anyway!")
  4. Surreptitious disposal of X
  5. Purchase of expensive consumer product that doesn't work half as well as X.

If more women understood how a man thinks, he wouldn't be bombarded with a whole lot of interruptions and requests to multi-task too many things at the same time. And he would actually find enjoyment in doing more projects around the home, and more often. In addition, he would be less tired and in a better mood to make more free time to spend together with you.
