Ok, now you've got a problem. I was going to suggest that you make the book thing into a challenge for yourself. See if you could find a loving and charming way to let him know your expectations.

But the picture thing is different. It does sound like he's being insensitive there. If you tell him that you appreciate his intent, but that it makes you feel uncomfortable, and he still pushes it as much as it sounds like he's pushing it.... Well, you could try again if you think you sounded ambivalent. If not, and he chose to think you are intrigued when you clearly told him you weren't? Eeeeeek, my "mom" vibes would be going off. My mom is a genius at seeing things how she wants to see them, and not how they are. It makes for a horrible relationship. If he's like that, run Tabitha, run!!

But I'm probably letting my own issues intrude here. :)

I laughed when I read your toilet paper roll story. I am the sort to not bother changing the roll unless the tissue paper is also out. I also will walk around in the dark for weeks rather than take five minutes to change a lightbulb. So you see how much of a sense of humor my husband has to keep?
