My current difficulties:
Explaining the need to double the drywall cost plus add $1400 in GG. Her comment, "I'll make you some green glue!"
Her again, "We don’t need to seat 15 people in a HT, I'm not having that many kids nor do I want that many people coming over on a regular basis! Can't we just find a couch on Craigslist?"
I have an old school projector screen sitting in my basement right now. She doesn't understand why that wouldn’t work. (It's about 5' wide and 4' tall) I convinced her that was too small and then she does a little research and finds projector wall paint...
"BLACK PAINT ON THE CEILING?!?!?! YOU'VE GOT TO BE OUT OF YOUR MIND!!!"
...let’s just say I am not looking forward to having to go shopping for a stereo/speakers/projector/etc.
I am lucky that she is excited to have a theater since we do watch movies a lot, but she thinks that should consist of finishing off the basement like a normal person would and then adding a projector and some speakers. I just have to bare down and take the heat because I know in the end she will tell me that I was right, just like when we were looking for dogs and she wanted an ankle biter and now she loves our black lab, she wanted a car that would get her by and now she loves her new Murano. She is starting to understand that I know what will make her happy, but I know it will only take one mistake and I will lose all the hard work
