Building a new house with my second husband...

Hoping to not make this a second divorce....

I don't think it is that bad but I need tips for staying sane lol. The stress is really bad for both of us. And of course DH is out of town for the week with work.

I know communication is important. I was trying to deal with the finances and he the drawings. Both have issues right now, some beyond our control, hurry up and wait things, decisions on where to put things etc. 

Just looking for ways to start sentences when dealing with issues. To show ways we care etc. I want to do a nice dinner for him when he gets back after the baby goes to bed maybe. The stress is kinda killing our excitement for the new house and it makes me sad.

Help ladies! Thanks

Oh gosh, I wish I had some good advice for you. I think building a house is just hard. Period. All I can really say is to keep communicating and acknowledge what is going on. DH got home from a long fishing weekend and he was wonderful when he got home, and then for no reason everything annoyed him. Well, he called me this morning at work and apoligized. I think things like that make all the difference. Hugs...
