Bickering

Husband: Did you pick up the dry cleaning?

Me: Um, no. I volunteered at school, lunch, the kids napped and then I made dinner.

Husband: Did you get the oil changed?

Me: Nope. Same answer.

Husband: (Sigh) Did you do ANYTHING I had on my list for you?

Me: I'm not sure? (Tapping foot) Was it the list that said "Raise two very small and time consuming children?".

Husband: (Stare)

Me: (Stare)

Husband: (Sigh. Sound of beer can cracking open.)

Ugh. This post is perfect. I just had an argument with my husband because I asked him if he had anything he had to work on tonight. And then I asked him to take my car up to one of those do it yourself car washes.

He told me he doesn't like it when I assign him things. Why don't I do it myself? I have an Expedition and I am 5'4" tall. It's a little hard for me to get to all of it.

F$%#@er!

I miss those kinds of conversations, except we have them by phone 7000 miles apart, I pretend to have the bad phone connection, I love the questions I get when they were things he was supposed to do 14 months ago before he deployed....if he could see me he would see the raised eyebrow and blank stare of, why are you asking me this now? Of course I did not do that, it was on YOUR LIST, why would I do your list? Mine is a million miles long.....I could ask you if you took our middle daughter to the orthodontist and you would give me the same answer......he then changes subject....

Just a couple few more weeks and we will get to have these in person....funny, I can't wait :D
(I'm also sure it will get old fast!)

And I guarantee that if the tables were turned (as they often are) his list would never be finished. EVER.

Men...can't live with 'em, can't lift their heavy dead bodies for proper disposal. ;o)

interesting...because we had a similar "discussion" this evening, when i returned home from work, having spent part of the day on the phone with my doctor (finding out i failed the 1-hour glucose test), my son's doctor (trying to get his drugs refilled), having my ass reamed by my boss (for shit that isn't even my doing), then picking up the child from school. i walked in and found husband in the kitchen standing around looking stupid. "what's for dinner?" he asked. "whatever you're making," i said, "i'm not cooking." he suggested spaghetti and meatballs, which is all he's bothered to cook in at least 3 months and which i am sick to death of. a diatribe ensued (how i've suddenly become responsible for all things not related to his new job since he started it, which he vehemently denied), and ended with him going to pick up pizza. with MY debit card. hmph.
