for a month if you have to - at least that’s what my husband says.
First, there ARE indeed many ‘low maintenance’ areas of involvement with REI. However, each has it’s drawbacks.
Ask you husband ( ina non threatening way, of course) if doing what you are doing now will get you where you want to go. If not, I suggest being willing to put up with some of the inconvenience that progress brings with it.
Frankly, we are not terribly uncomfortable with the “tenants and toilets”, which is why moving into one of John B’s areas of expertise - RE paper - seems “difficult” … because it is unknown and therefore uncomfortable.
However, motivation will move you when nothing else does, so figure out very clearly what you are trying to accomplish, look at REI as a “how”, and find the areas you are best suited to pursue.
