How do I start???
This made me really sad!!!
I guess because I've seen so many BIG problems around me in the last few weeks!
I was sad before I read it & this seems so easy to live with & fix!
Sure it's probably meant all in fun....but it is in the rant section!
Being one of the 'oldsters' on ATS, & having been married 35 years,
(to the same guy), I guess I can give my 5 cents worth.
First, I want to hear 5 wonderful things
that Mrs R does for you, that she wouldn't have to.
Second, 5 things that you love about her.
Third, 5 things that you do, that fry her gizzard!!!
Okay, now here's the 5 cents!!!
Hasn't everyone by now heard the sayings:
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over & over again
& expecting different results!
You can't change people/situations, you can only change how you react to them!
Haven't you ever watched one of those health shows
where they put dye in the toilet bowl water, then flush it?
Then they measure how far the droplets spray out! Up to 6 feet away!!!
What are you doing leaving your toothbrush exposed!
Is France one of the countries with those 'woosh' toilets??? Probably 10 feet then!!!
Yuck!!! Put it away, get a case...something!!!!
You take turns with the dishwasher? Sigh...how nice!
Just a guess...but I'm betting Mrs R is too short
to comfortably reach up to the cupboard to put the Tupperware away neatly!
Why not nest them in a basket in a bottom cabinet???
That way you pull out the basket, take one out or put one away easily!
Don't blame the cat...it's not buying it's own food!
If you really think that's the problem, YOU get a different kind to try!
Why is it laying eggs in your office? Is that where the litter box is?
If it's not, maybe you should try it there for awhile.
At least then it would cover things up!
The cup of leftover chocolate...hmmm?
You know it's going to be there, if you love her, grab it & move it to the sink.
The bathmat thing...not quite sure. Why do you keep walking into a known danger?
The only thing I can come up with is two mats. While one is drying, use the spare one?
Of course, solutions to conflicts,
requires looking at things from a different perspective!
Have you talked to her about these things?
Would she be receptive to working on them?
I like the shows where the husband & wife have to change places for a day!
That would be eye opening!!!
My hubby....NOPE, I'm not even going to go there. Not even in fun.
Cause I'm sure he could make a list too.
Not a very big one though..I'm a saint!!! Bwahahahahahaha!!!!!
