My Husband Is Antsy
June 3, 2016 8:20am CST
I have been retired for one week now and every day my husband has found somewhere that we absolutely must go. I have been to a grocery store 4 times, Dollar General 1 time, WalMart twice, and today he wants to go to WalMart again. It isn't that he likes to shop - we really haven't bought much. He just seems to have to go somewhere every single day. When I say I don't want to go that there are things I need to do, he gets annoyed. He tells me that this was what he was afraid would happen, that I would be indoors and he would be outdoors not spending time with each other. I would take my crafts and writing out to a table on the back deck if it wasn't in the 90's. When it is so hot and the humidity so high it effects my breathing. So I do need to stay inside. I stop what I am doing when he comes inside to spend time with him but he seems to feel the need to go out somewhere. I love him dearly but I don't know what has gotten into him. I have tried to talk to him about it but he doesn't think it's a problem. He didn't have a problem with me writing and crafting and staying inside until I retired. I wonder what is going on.

He wants your attention. I would set down some boundaries now or you may be sorry later. Maybe make a point of having him come in at noon for lunch and then you spend some time together.. Then for dinner and the same thing. I think it's sort of silly for him to insist you go with him every time he goes. Maybe you need to set up a certain time that you do your writing and then have time with him or what ever.

My husband wants to stay inside all the time, I have to push him to go out, at least in the garden, to catch some rays of sun. It's for his health. Try to set some days that you go out together and set some days that you do your crafting.
