Heh heh heh…

y’all are funny. a few of you knew just what I meant about the clean house, and even dared to say it. one lone guy, joel, stood up for the male perspective. (always fascinating and informative when you guys do that, by the way.) and a whole lotta you followed the ‘if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all’ rule, and that is so cute. i KNOW y’all don’t agree with me for being annoyed about the clean house — i mean, I don’t even agree with me. it’s irrational. i know. it’s perfectly fine to say so or not say so, too. another thing…. i think Lauren talked about how she’s more likely to click away than disagree with a blogger in his/her comments. you do what you’re comfortable with here, and know you have my blessing to disagree here.

soooo. mike’s out of town. no. i don’t have any weird plans. like cleaning. okay, fine. i DO, but that’s only because hello?! the house HAS to be every bit as clean when HE gets back as it was when I got back and THAT WAS SCARY-CLEAN, y’all.

It’s okay. Just click away from the freakishness going on here if that’s your style.  It might last awhile, though, just so ya know.

I completely understood where you were coming from and being 5 months pregnant, I can at least blame my irrational feelings on “hormones”. While it isn’t always fair to the guy when this happens, watcha gonna do?!?

Anyway, I just wanted to say that I was LOL when I read that entry!

Click away? CLICK AWAY? Not a chance. I’m just so relieved to have found someone who will admit to being mad when Hubby handles things better than I do.

Kelsey! They have doctors for this!

Just wear your shiny new lip gloss and he’ll never even notice the house… Heck, throw on a negligee and I guarantee the house won’t matter one bit after that. Gloss and satin? That man will be in heaven. And you, my friend, won’t have to lift a finger.

I know the feeling, Kelsey. Last year, when my husband was unemployed for a little while, I went to work full-time. I absolutely hated that he did a better job than I did on the housework. My problem: I enjoy spending too much time playing with my kids. The upside: my four-year-old daughter can read to ME now. It’s a trade-off. I know that Rob would probably be a better house-husband than I am a housewife, and that’s troubling. I’m such a perfectionist about some things, but housework is just something I don’t fret about. Unfortunately, it shows…way too much.
I am so fortunate to have him for a husband because some men would be furious all the time. He’s only annoyed sometimes (I think). I’ll admit that Shalee’s suggestion about the negligee would definitely help. I should really work on that.
Thanks, Joel, for your perspective. It’s good to hear the man’s point of view.

I didn’t comment on the last post because honestly I don’t know how I would react if I came home to a stunningly clean house. I don’t believe my husband is capable of doing that. He he

So, maybe I should feel grateful that his incompetance at such things is greater than my own. I never have to feel as you did…because I probably would be guiltridden by the cleanliness.

I tend not to comment when I disagree with a fellow blogger’s post too. But, usually that’s only when it’s about political or religious stuff. I read, and “click away.” it’s just me. And I would not clean the house, cuz I’m just not competetive by nature…makes my hubby crazy!! Especially when we’re playing games. ha!Ok, I’m done rambling.

I promise, I didn’t hold back on commenting because I disagreed with you. Not that I agreed, but as you have established, that’s okay. Just feeling a little weary and lacking for words. It is good to have you back though, freakishness and all! :)

Okay, I’ve figured this out… I don’t get how you feel ’cause I’ve never experienced it. I do think that I would like to though.

i think it’s kinda funny! i would be the same way–totally expect the house to be a disaster and ben to be exhausted!
my dh would hire someone to come clean and not tell me!

I wouldn’t worry about the house being “that” clean when he gets back, He’s a guy. We never notice stuff like that. I mean please, we go camping. We sleep on dirt.

ummm….I’m more on the “if you can’t say anything nice, come sit right here by me” wave length. ;)

I feel irritated that he made it look so easy which means I’m afraid he won’t NEED me anymore…..Glad to see someone else knows what the feeling is like…
