What a Big Help

What would I do without such good help?


When I need to vacuum, my husband picks up his feet so I can run it underneath him.

He also lets me know if I have missed a spot.

When the lightbulb in the foyer goes out, he tells me where I can find the ladder and warns me to be careful it doesn't tip when I climb it.

When we are done with dinner and have somewhere to be, he reminds me how much time I have left to clean up before he is leaving.

When it is laundry day he puts his own underwear in the basket so I can carry it all downstairs.

When it is grocery day he reminds me to recycle all the empty bags after I bring them in from the car and unpack them.

If I haven't dusted for a while he writes his name and the date in the dust.

What a guy. What a big help.

  • aren't men so wonderful? ... blech ! The rule around my house as far as laundry is concerned is that your laundry has to find it's own transportation to the laundry room or it doesn't get done . Needless to say I am asked several times a week where a certain item of clothing is and that is when I reply , exactly where you left it !

  • Suggests that you run to the nearest library and check out the book "How to Train Your Dog". Buy some of his favotrie candies like m and m's or something, keep them in your pocket for rewards when he obeys. Tell him, "Good boy" when he does something right...Use this dog training technique on the husband, like in the old movie....it'll work....

  • Crap Lime - I think we married the same guy!

    I said this to Blither the other day too - maybe we all married the same guy or just the wrong ones!

  • You're lucky to have someone remind you of all those things.. I have to remind MYSELF and then...I have to do them all MYSELF...sheesh... both jobs...

  • bs, you make a good point. i want to clarify i am not male bashing in general, just venting frustration with my own personal version. but i will be more mindful. i did kind of think after a series of my recent rants that maybe i was getting too negative.......don't want to drive you or the other male readers away.

  • Hey Honey, it's me, Tori! I came over to the Insane Asylime like you said! :P....My husband doesnt do any of those naughty things, because we have a housekeeper!
    I like Susies idea to use a dog training book, though! She's a smart girl!
    Can't wait for todays post!
