au contraire, Mon frere! She would love it. My DH has no clue what it means to sing on key. We used to joke that the closest he ever came to carrying a tune was when he used to carry my guitar in case for me when I had a gig. He is a horrible off-tune, scratchy voice singer. To me, that makes it all the more adorable and lovely! It melts my heart!

Try singing a line from a love song to your DW. You might be surprised!

Sounds like me. Then I get resentful because I really *do* care, while bf could sit in filth with trash piled up to his head if the PS4 still worked properly.

I love to iron. I find it to be so relaxing. But I don't have anything that needs to be ironed very often.
Weather is changing again so I woke up with a killer migraine. Stayed home since I only work part time anyway. Will go in Friday for my second day this week.
I rarely ever run the dishwasher as DH does it. Is there a correct way to load one?

Floors are usually relegated to him because he does a much better job of it than I do. We don't have a dishwasher, but I do the dishes because he doesn't do them to my standards. At work, I always reload the dishwasher because the guys do it "wrong."
My dear DH "does it wrong" too. But after years of him trying, I let it go after I realized I was lucky he even tries. I traveled quite often for work back in the day and he became quite good at all household chores. Funny how that works when wifey isn't there to take care of it all. He still is very good at helping, he does his own laundry ( I don't trust him to sort my stuff ) he vacuums and cleans the floors. I do the more detailed stuff like cleaning the bathrooms because Im picky about how they're done. He will do shopping with a list and also cooks, but with me eating my own way, I do much more of it now.

Iron? Sing on key? What?
I have made a decision. To slip off into fast5 land.
Got the iBook and been skimming over it.
So this am im thinking, ok it's a dd am-early pm and then apply food to mouth as needed.
It's totally a different mind game-sorta.
Everyday is dd, until I see the whites of my dh eyes come evening time, 5:30-6:30 pm
It's Just my first plan, my first time trying fast 5. it makes since to me to make everyday the same.
Just thought of something. I may have to go to his job this adternoon-evening to see him maybe around 1pm?
I have imply a plan B for tmw.

I have a preferred way that I like the dishwasher to be loaded, but since my children are required to load it, it is as they do! If I undo what they have done, I shouldn't require them to do it....but my kids don't get to stay in the house and do NOTHING! At their age, house stuff needs to be delegated to them! I only have a few more years to get my CHILD LABOR out of them!

With a king size bed I would have to figure out how to do that on an ironing board. Fold fold fold I guess.

Omg, you guys are killing me.

Thanks for the kind words about the pic-- it's actually from last May at that user group thing I go to, in San Jose. I'm "on" for about the whole week, so I'm hoping I'll be a bit thinner this year (or at least back to where I was last year!)

re: partners and housework. DH definitely irons, though we now dryclean all his shirts, so he doesn't need to anymore. But when I met him, he was working on shifts, and he's spend part of his Monday day-off ironing. Adorable.

I do most of the cooking, and he makes a great breakfast. But I don't like his pancakes, and sometimes his scrambled eggs with EVERYTHING is too much for me, so I'll opt out and do my own thing.
He also makes a great grilled cheese (he puts mayo in the middle! amazing!)

Our rule is-- the one who doesn't cook, does the cleaning. Unless he cooks, in which case, he should clean also
LOL

We both load the dishwasher, though I think I do it better (he forgets things like, X will melt on the bottom, or don't put too much on the bottom or the water doesn't get to the top). So sometimes, I'll re-stack stuff.
Is that what you mean by "re-loading"?

My final word on this is: during the kitchen renovation, I thought we'd re-use the dishwasher... but it turned out we couldn't, so while the plumber was here, I had to FLY to the store to buy a new one.
I went with one that was "out of box" so I could take it right away... and thought it was a good balance of price/features etc.

When I got home and looked up the reviews, I almost because it got HORRIBLE reviews.
And like, 2 good ones.

that said-- if you read the manual and stack the dishes as recommended, this is a great dishwasher.

So-- I did by the extended warranty also-- DH and I both read the manual, and the suggested dish stacking diagram... and (knock wood) haven't had an issue with it (yet).

******************

ugh, I weighed today (lets call yesterday an UD). I am so far back up on the scale, I just want to beat my head against a wall.
But-- the combination of emotion, and the headache I had yesterday that required copious amounts of advil/aleve/other stuff, might be part of it too.
Hopefully it's a lot of water retention from the carbapalooza and I'll lose it fast.

Hope you folks with the snow are digging out ok. Not a flake here, but its wicked cold.

S.

What is it with guys and dishwashers!
My dh OVERLOADS the Dw. I try to beat him to that chore.
He's great at helping, I'm very lucky.
I cook mostly, he helps clean up.

Remember in the mid to late 80's when most of men's casual shirts were 100% cotton and wrinkled if you looked crosswise at them? Yeah, I used to iron a lot.

It's T-shirts or sweatshirts now, so screw that.

Oh, and I load the dishwasher just fine, thank you very much. It just isn't the same way my wife would do it, so it's "wrong".

I'm a bit OCD, so I can tend toward all or nothing (perfect or screw it). Its all about the middle ground

re: the comment above, and things people say... when I was a kid, and I'd slurp something (soup, whatever)... my mother would say, "Would you do that if the Queen were visiting?"

Ok, well, no... and I learned not to slurp the soup. But now that I think about it, wth?

What's really bad is when you catch yourself saying the same kind of thing to your kids.

I'm a bit behind but I'll just say that mine came to me trained by the US Government and there is no one better for teaching a young man to iron, fold, clean, do laundry, etc than the USMC!
I do not iron, I will load and washer and dryer but rarely fold. We're about 50/50 on dishes. We'll both clean but he's much more likely to get to it first.
My barn is spotless. My house - not so much. But I spend more time in the barn so thats how I justify it...he doesn't buy it.

OMG, Soren, I almost didn't recognize you, I had to take a second look! You look lovely, darling! What an open and inviting face!

Oh My, This is a very busy and entertaining thread! Just as well hubby's on call and no cooking, so I can devote my time to this!

So OK, I'm with Adi on ironing, I don't like to do it everyday but when I do, I do it for 2-3 hrs straight and yes, I do find it meditative! Give me a sense of accomplishment too somehow! There was a time in England when we line dried everything and I used to iron, sheets/duvets and Underwear too! Hated it! Most of DH's stuff I take to the cleaners now, phew! Thank God for that!

And no, he doesn't know how to load or unload the dish washer either and yes, I am very particular as to how it should be loaded!

Yam-Yam, he does sing to me completely off key too but always with songs that have "melt your heart" or completely funny lyrics, depending on the mood! Frosty, we woman are funny that way, we like it! That's why he's a keeper!

Hi Yennie, I see the ticker or should I say the horse is trotting again!

My mom did the same when I was growing up in Southern California! She always said, "Eat as though you were eating with the Queen of England." I just rolled my eyes at the time but now it seems bizarre. We aren't royal subjects here. Why not refer to the president or the first lady or a person of great accomplishment? When I went off to college in Maine I found other young women whose mothers used the same tactic.

For the sake of experimentation, you must try this and report back. If we're right, you'll probably get ... ummm ... dessert tonight.

I started to tell my wife about this conversation and - no lie - she stuck her hand out and said "I don't want to hear you sing".



Hey - I use Devo's "Girl U Want" for the ringtone when she calls me. That's pretty romantic, right?

We don't own an iron... We do have a steamer, which I used today when I hemmed a pair of pants and needed a crease.

We don't have a dishwasher either...

Most of you clearly don't live in NY sized apartments. We couldn't spare space for a luxury item like an ironing board. My shoes definitely take priority

ETA: I have 3 flat irons... Hair and shoes...

I iron the fronts of shirts and then leave my jacket on.

Ironing doesn't really bother me in the winter but it's pure torture in the summer.

I don't buy any clothes that require an iron. I used to buy a lot of linen and cotton things back in my 20s that required constant ironing. Not anymore lol. Anything I have that could wrinkle badly just gets an extra 5-10 min in the dryer before I wear it lol.
