Newly retired hubby getting under my skin

Leeflea51, I think you're absolutely right about your situation being a temporary one and you're trying to navigate your way around it. DH and I were in therapy for other things, but this was one of our problems. Our therapist suggested I have a sign made that basically says "Keep out!" so I can shut my door and not worry about being disturbed when I want to spend time alone. My sign says it a little more delicately: "Hope you don't mind...I'm focusing." Works well for us except when I forget to put it up. LOL

Newly retired husbands/partners don't have much to do and nobody to boss around, so they focus on the poor wife who's been there all along doing everything herself. It does get worked out, otherwise there would be more divorced newly retired couples!
