My best conversations are between me, myself and I

He doesn't like to admit it, but my husband's hearing isn't what it was. I have been telling him for years that he needs to be tested, but like most men he ignores that advice. When we sit together in the living room our recliners are only separated by a small table, so we are definitely within 'hearing distance'.... But, I have to repeat everything and I am really getting tired of having conversations with myself. So I give up, I say it once and if he doesn't hear me I provide both sides of the conversation: Me: Did you feed Ruby? Him: (no response) Me: DID YOU FEED RUBY? Him: What Me: Ok, Ruby, did he feed you or not? No, OK, I'll feed you. Him: Who are you talking to? Me: Ruby Him: Did she answer you? Me: Better than how you answer me! Him: What? Me: Never mind, I give up, but I'm telling the doctor you need to have your hearing tested. Him: I don't know what you just said, I wasn't paying attention. Me: I might as well talk to myself. As I said, my best conversations are between me, myself and I! Photo is mine and was taken shortly after we moved in which is why it looks so stark. (Wow, almost 4 years ago, time does fly.)

I LOVE the living room that's what I'm looking at doing with the cabin but NOT all in the same wood but dividing it up into like different woods or wall decor so it don't ALL look the same like the ceiling in one wood & the walls we put in with another type of wood & the walls that need something to jazz them up with another type of decor to break it up. I know what your talking about I have the same thing going on with mine too so your not alone in the department ha ha ha sometimes that's the BEST conversation you can have.

We didn't build this house - and I agree with you. They should have done different wood - like oak flooring. But like I said this is pre decorating the house...so it looks quite different now. Naturally I don't have a current photo/ PS - not the whole house is done in wood - just living room/kitchen-dining/master bed and bath and two halls...the rest is sheet rock and pain (like normal) and it's not a log home it's a brick home.
I hate to say it but sometimes those are the best conversations. He is too proud or stubborn I see to go get tested and if he needs a hearing aid it sounds like then that will say something is wrong with him. Maybe he can't handle that is why he will not go get tested. I don't know him so I am just guessing. Sorry if I was way off.
