I love my husband...I love my husband...I love my

husband...oh! It's a good thing I love the old fart. Lately he's been acting, odd for the lack of a better word. Doing the laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning out the cat box, having dinner waiting for me when I get home from work. You see, he's been retired for 30 years, I still have 10 years to go before I have that privilege. So he has a lot more time on his hands for all those fun things.

It's not that hubby doesn't do those things anyway, only it's one or the other. NOT all of them at the same time. After all, he doesn't want to spoil me:) If I didn't know better I'd think the man was having an affair or something and felt guilty.

Tonight I came home to home made spaghetti with sausage. It was good, and it was EVERYWHERE! God love that man, he doesn't see that well. Either that or he pretends he can't see. How many times have I picked something up that he's dropped only to hear when I question him about it, "I didn't see it?" Too many. I'm not stupid.

Since he cooked, he's always quick to say "since I cooked you clean up". I don't remind him that I have to clean up when I cook. I washed the dishes, counter tops, stove top, the side of the microwave where the sauce splashed, (we have white appliances) the stove, the can opener, the fronts of the cabinets (have off white cabinets, too). I'll have to leave the curtains for wash day.

Didn't take long to clean up and the spaghetti was worth it:) But I still can't help wonder what's going on.

You need to check out the blog today at Petticoats and Pistols. It's all about men, and it has been hilarious!

Hmmm, does hubby need a hobby?

Debbie Wallace said...

OMG...yes he needs a hobby! Unfortunately he's older than dirt, his words not mine, and not in the best of health. He used to play golf but never regained his strength after open heart surgery.

I would start to wonder also if he is doing all these things at once and not just one. LoL @ Luann's comment maybe he does need a hobby or he just wants to start doing more who knows but when you find out let us know ;-)

Sorry to hear about his open heart surgery hope all is well with him.

It's been a few years since surgery but at his age, he just never got back to 100%.

He's already back to normal because last night he left the dishes in the sink:)
