Can't wait until tomorrow- - -
 
I don't know about where you're at, but it's sure HOT here, 98 @ 3:20 p.m. with no relief in sight. I try to get my outside things done early and then come in for the heat of the day, between 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. Now there's a new problem. My wife comes in today and says she is tired of coming home and finding me in the house "doing nothing". She says she it is not nice for me to sit in my own house with my shirt off either, well -it's cooler and it's my house. She even told me today that if she comes home one more time and finds me with my shirt off then she is- "going to take her shirt off also to show me how ridiculous it looks". BOY, I can't wait until tomorrow- - -:eek:

Tell her that if you do any work inside the house now, you won't have anything left to do in the winter months.

Several possible options in no particular order:
1. Head over to an Air Conditioned Bar at 1.
2. Find an afternoon girlfriend with an air conditioned apartment who doesn't mind you shirtless.
3. Lock the door from the inside so she can't come in and see you sitting around shirtless.
4. Trade her in for a low maintenance model.
5. Earplugs and a good book.
6. Take her up on her offer.
7. Work out in the heat and get heatstroke (my sympathies if this is your preferred option).

Ask her which option she thinks you should take. If it's #7 then see #4.

I've been getting lots of painting done inside
We've only had 4 days of sun so far this month :(

That's all funny, jogr.

Another suggestion. Spend those 4 hours each day building yourself a man-cave.

Before she gets home today, put on one of her blouse's. She might appreciate you going shirtless after seeing that. :thumbup: :laughing:

Man I am glad I`m single now.:drink:

Could try putting on the shirt and losing the pants. See if she makes the same threat. :thumbup:

Mine complains that I spend too much time in the garage and basement, and wants me to watch TV with her more and "not work on stuff so much".. There's just no winning...

Um.. I'd think that was a good thing if you didn't put the :eek:..

I'd go with jogr's #1 followed by #6, and then Maint. 6's suggestion for good measure...
