Guest taken by the wind...

~ Swede, just do what MY husband does. NOTHING. He doesn't put up a single decoration. IF it goes up. I put it up, afterwards, I take it down. End of discussion.

:D  :D  :D  Swede, This sounds like about 50% or more of the answers I receive!  I know ladies love to talk, but when a simple 'yes' or 'no' answer is all that is needed why the song and dance?  My wife can tap-dance around an answer with a minute-long ramble that tells me absolutely nothing.  Is she hoping I'll forget the question?  :unsure:

SURVIVOR GUY at home with the Mrs.

 

Does your Mrs. take the left over food out of the bowl and put it in another bowl so she can wash the first bowl? Whats up with that? 8|

 

Would SURVIVOR GUY  do something like that?

 

:nono:

 

Does your Mrs. take all the blankets off the bed and fold them up nicely and but them on her blanket rack and than put her fancy bed spread on the bed so when you go to bed you have to take the bedspread off and put your blankets back on? To much work for me :uhuh:

 

Would SURVIVOR GUY do something like that?

 

:nono:

 

Does your Mrs. decide where she has been putting something in the kitchen for years is no longer where she wants it so she moves it somewhere else making it IMPOSSIBLE for you to find it? Now where did she put that thing now !!!

 

Would SURVIVOR GUY do something like that to her?

 

:nono:

Man, I feel your pain.  Here's my philosophy on cooking:  You should be able to cook it, eat it and store it in its original container.  No fuss, no muss, no bother.

 

And why make up a bed anyway?  You're just going to get back in it later!

 

As for moving things...Why?  If it ain't broke, why fix it?

 

Hope this helps, Survivor Guy.

Advice from a retired husband

 

It is important for men to remember that, as women grow older, it becomes harder for them to maintain the same quality of housekeeping as when they were younger. When you notice this, try not to yell at them. Some are oversensitive, and there's nothing worse than an oversensitive woman..

 

My name is Ron. Let me relate how I handled the situation with my wife, Carol Anne.. When I retired a few years ago, it became necessary for Carol Anne to get a full-time job, along with her part-time job, both for extra income and for the health benefits that we needed. Shortly after she started working, I noticed she was beginning to show her age. I usually get home from the golf club about the same time she gets home from work.

 

Although she knows how hungry I am, she almost always says she has to rest for half an hour or so before she starts dinner. I don't yell at her. Instead, I tell her to take her time and just wake me when she gets dinner on the table. I generally have lunch in the Men's Grill at the club, so eating out is not reasonable. I'm ready for some home-cooked grub when I hit that door. She used to do the dishes as soon as we finished eating. But now it's not unusual for them to sit on the table for several hours after dinner.

 

I do what I can by diplomatically reminding her several times each evening that they won't clean themselves. I know she really appreciates this, as it does seem to motivate her to get them done before she goes to bed.

 

Another symptom of aging is complaining, I think.  For example, she will say that it is difficult for her to find time to pay the monthly bills during her lunch hour. But, Boys, we take 'em for better or worse, so I just smile and offer encouragement. I tell her to stretch it out over two, or even three days. That way, she won't have to rush so much. I also remind her that missing lunch completely now and then wouldn't hurt her any (if you know what I mean). I like to think tact is one of my strong points.

 

When doing simple jobs, she seems to think she needs more rest periods. She had to take a break when she was only half-finished mowing the yard. I try not to make a scene. I'm a fair man. I tell her to fix herself a nice, big, cold glass of freshly squeezed lemonade and just sit for a while. And, as long as she is making one for herself, she may as well make one for me, too.

 

I know that I probably look like a saint in the way I support Carol Anne. I'm not saying that showing this much consideration is easy. Many men will find it difficult. Some will find it impossible! Nobody knows better than I do how frustrating women get as they get older. However, Guys, even if you just use a little more tact and less criticism of your aging wife because of this article, I will consider that writing it was well worthwhile. After all, we are put on this earth to help each other.

 

Signed, 

Ron 

 

EDITOR'S NOTE:

Ron died suddenly on January 31 of a perforated rectum. The police report says he was found with a Calloway extra-long 50-inch Big Bertha Driver II golf club jammed up his rear end, with barely 5 inches of grip showing, and a sledge hammer laying nearby. His wife Carol Anne was arrested and charged with murder. The all-woman jury took only 10 minutes to find her Not Guilty, accepting her defense that Ron, somehow without looking, accidentally sat down on his golf club.
