How do you deal with a grouchy husband?

How do you deal with your spouse being a grouch?

My husband is an absolute mean grouch sometimes (once a week or so) usually when he's tired or stressed with work or just a grouch in general. It's tough, as he snaps and becomes a beast.

Any little discussion or thing that's talked about will explode. Right now, I either talk about things (appointments for the next day, stuff that we need to be on top of, worries about the baby, anything) and risk them getting out of hand, or completely avoid talking to him for fear that it will end in me sobbing and him yelling and being mean.

I really don't know what to do when he's like that, it's just an explosion waiting to happen.

Other times he's wonderful, a great husband and sweet. When the grumpy beast comes out there, it's hell being around him. He's really mean then.

What do you do to deal with your spouse when he/she is like that?
