Sighhhhhhhh......
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!!!!!
WOQ



Oh dear someone got out of bed on the wrong side
Have some flowers to cheer you up


I happen to know Rodinus personally and have spent time at his (rather lovely home) with him and his family and got drunk together (Sorry about that mate).

I can tell you from experience you will never find a more dedicated husband and father.

He is also a vet, so suggestions about pet care are somewhat superfluous.

I do hope your day improves

Cody

Ahh married bliss!


I would also just have to say thank you to my better half.
I am lucky enough to wake up to a pot of hot coffee every morning, he even made the family waffles this morning. He keeps us warm with his lovely full woodshed. He takes beautiful care of us.

He could turn the tv off from time to time, but it gives me a chance to get my ATS fix without feeling bad.

Honestly, I have to admit that he has to put up with many of the things that you do Rodinus. I am terrible at putting away the Tupperware. I destroy the kitchen while cooking ( though he does get treated to 3 course homemade meals most evenings ).

I am grateful to have found my soul mate so early in life.

All the best to you and Mrs. R! ( and start watching where you walk, lol)

Ha, ha!
No need to justify yourself or please me!
I was just yanking your chain a little!
It did make me chuckle when I first read it!
Sorry if I came across as snarky!

But it's rainy & gloomy here, & I have an uncomfortable feeling today.
Like there is a strange 'disturbance in the Force', if you will!
And that we will look back on this as the 'good old days' very soon!
Just can't shake it! Maybe a big quake coming...I don't know?

Plus our new great nephew was born with Down's Syndrome.
Someone I went to school with just had her son die from seizure complications.
Hit very close to home 'cause hubby just started having seizures a few years ago.
And my 16 year old cat, the smartest, best cat I ever had, is dying.
Things only happen in 3's, right?

Thanks for the chuckle...I know you were just kidding!
I didn't mean to be such a Debbie Downer! Lol!
I'm usually a very positive person. Guess I need more humor right now.
Maybe I'll even try & play along when we get back from our dentist appointment!

Thank you for sharing that with us Woods

I am starting to wonder if my other half has not also set the 4 dogs and the 2 cats up with remote control devices and she is secretly controlling them so that they crap in front of where ever i step in the garden!

Yuk!

Kindest respects

Thanks for the goodies! Smile!
Oh, my! (In George Takei's voice!)
Did I really come across as that snarky???
That's what I get for not using those boring, green emoticons!!!
Sorry everyone, it was, I guess, a very feeble attempt at a little dry humor!
Must have been very dry! Lol!!!

On the positive side...
I never got so much or such fast feedback from one of my posts! Lol!
Who would have thought that coming across as negative,
would turn out to be so positive???
Now I really have to pry myself away,
or hubby will have something to start a list with!!! Lol!

Thanks Tothetenth

Nawwww, beatings will not be on the menu as Mrs R is still having slight problems with her English... although i am fairly "honest" with her and help her with reading my posts.

I woud love to type what she dictates about me and tell you all that this is what Mrs R dictated... but you would also say that i was lying out of my bum for her saying that i was perfect


However... for the" this is how I paid for that other thread the other day", there probably will be one if i can raise myself up from my hospital bed and have the energy to type after the severe bout of "food poisoning" that i may have one day!

Kindest respects

Aww, thanks for the lovely greeting!
I have to admit, yours and Cody's 'rants' make me laugh so hard I blow coffee outta my nose sometimes, lol.

Nice to find out that you're a vet...*respect*....
Ohhh....and on the topic of your kitty's 'eggs'....I have ferrets...and their poop turns into concrete!! So next time you find an 'egg'...at least you don't have to pry it out of the carpet with a screwdriver! (Yes, it's true I tell ya!)

P.S. Mini-rant....I HATE the new emoticons! Hate em!

My other half has just suggested that you take my thread a little lighter... she certainly had a good laugh when reading through it.

Oh please, for the love of Pete (or your wife... or THAT DARN CAT) ...Puhhh-Leease ask Mrs. Rodinus to write a message on your thread to her loving husband for all of US to read!!! I can see it now...

"I saw you brushing your teeth with my hair again. And using it for floss. (Yes, I saw you pulling it between your teeth.) I've seen this so many times and finally found the words I needed to say to address it: Please stop being weird."

or

"Everyday I labor in vain to conduct that Science experiment, because every day you screw it up. PLEASE leave my cup alone... do you realize how long it takes for me to achieve 100% accurately on volume, including the ratio of hot cocoa to saliva-backwash; and the precision and timing involved in the placement of the cup in relation to both Magnetic AND Polar North at the stroke of sunrise?"

It appears that your first mistake of the day was loading the dishwasher. What do you keep that woman around for if you have to load the dishwasher all by yourself? I would also suggest that she not wear any clothes when loading the dishwasher, thereby precluding her messing up her own clothes. Those things cost money, you know!

For the bath mat, I might suggest a dab of super glue at each corner and along the edges before placing it back on the floor for the last time. Otherwise, you have to wait until your eyes are open to get into the shower in the morning, which presents its own problems. Nailing it down would also work, although that could perhaps be a bit unsightly for your tastes.

A nail for the toothbrush, to hang it on, would probably also be a good idea to forestall any hairish unpleasantness. The key there is to hang it higher than the height she brushes her hair from. This could be problematic if she hangs from the ceiling to do it.

The tupperware avalanche is a purposeful thing. She does that as a burglar alarm, to tell if you've been in the cupboards. See paragraph 1 above for the solution. As a matter of fact, I would just stay out of the kitchen altogether. Safer for you, and it's "no man's land" anyhow. The extent of your interaction with the kitchen should be to shout "Woman! Make me a sammitch!" from the living room.

The kitten... why did you waste a perfectly good kitten? Have you no barbecue sauce?

I hope you have found this advice helpful. Following it will most assuredly provide for a more harmonious home environment. You're welcome! Just consider it a public service announcement!

Welp Rod I don't stack pots and pans correctly. My whole life I have been pretty successful at such tasks. Today however I have learned that I am an absolute failure at such tasks. Our local adult learning annex just posted pot stacking 101 which my wife immediately signed me up for. I will take notes and share them with all that are interested.
