I think it depends on whose mood is "stronger" at the time. We tend to trade off being in a crabby mood, like a little emotional seesaw.

I dunno what that's all about.
Maybe when I get all down, he goes to extra efforts to brighten things up, and vice versa. But the overall "net household mood" seems pretty stable, so I can't say one of us is more of a tone-setter than the other.

It all works out pretty good that way.
