A Note to All Husbands

I know I have only been married for 1 1/2 years....and know Zach for 2 1/ years but some of the things that go on in our home just blow me away.....

Please tell me there is a light at the end of the tunnel!

See if you can relate:

If I am crying and you ask me what is wrong and I explain to you the situation, please do not respond by saying...."I don't understand why you are crying. It doesn't seem like that big of a deal." One, what do you not understand....I just explained it to you. Two, I am already crying....do you really want to make me cry harder? Maybe a better response would be "Baby, I am so sorry that happened to you today. Don't worry...everything will be okay." Yes... that will work. And maybe at this time, it isn't exactly a good idea to let me know something I did that bothered you this week. There is a time and place for everything....Bad Timing!

Just because I am a woman, does not mean I was put on this Earth to constantly clean. Please put your dirty clothes in the hamper, your dirty dishes in the dishwasher, your dirty shoes in the closet or on the carport, your used tooth picks in the trash can and your broken peanut shells in the designated bowl. I am not your maid or your mother. And just because you are a man, doesn't mean you get full control over the remote....if I have to watch one more episode of NCIS or something about Biker Gangs....I don't know what I am going to do!

If I call you at work to ask you what time you will be home for lunch and this is the only time I call you all day...please do not respond to me by saying...."I would be home a lot sooner if I wasn't on the phone with you." These words will only lead to you making your own lunch. Your choice!

If a holiday designated specifically for me, hence my birthday or Mother's day, is coming up....please do not ask me...."Well, whatya wanna do?" Please do not ask me to plan these days......I plan the other 363 days of our lives. You can handle 2!

Just because I am your best friend, doesn't mean I need a play by play of your bowel movements....Thanks!

Welcome to my life!

You are NOT alone my friend! If I had a dime for every time I've asked Mike to put his dirty dishes in the dishwasher (or even the sink for that matter) instead of on leaving them on the counter, I'd be RICH.

Love how you aren't afaid to keep it real on here!!
You are sooo not alone! I've been tempted in the past to put up sticky notes all over the house saying "Put toilet lid down" or "Wash your dishes after using them"...etc... It's worth a try... At least until he gets the point! Haha!

Just blog surfing. Thanks for the post. 10 years later and I still do a lot of these things (though not quite as much anymore). with Mother's day coming up I'll be sure to avoid asking my wife what she wants or what we should do.

Just came across your blog via Kellys Korner & saw this post... I could have written it word for word! Ahhhhh MEN! I was told earlier to go to the grocery store and buy the stuff for ME TO COOK for dinner tomorrow night! Just LOVE Mother's Day/Birthday plans!

Hope you have a good Mother's Day!
