I voted that we both set the tone, but in reality, we have the exact opposite of what you described in your post. I can easily be cheered up if I am in a bad mood, but Dh is not that easy at all, and his bad moods can really mess up our whole house "feeling". Luckily, neither of us is very moody, so the bad moods are rare. Most of the time, our home is a joyful one
