The Obvious Clues…

Today’s version of America’s Next Top Blogger is brought to you by a reader who wanted to know specifically what things Hubby does, on purpose or not, to annoy me. Wow, that is a loaded question, right? But, I will answer this as specifically as I can. First of all, keep in mind that Hubby and I have been married for almost 5 years now, but have known each other for 10, so I guess the keyword is that we KNOW exactly what to do to TICK each other off. So, without further ado, I give you my answer.  

Better yet, dear reader, I will give you proof of the things he does to annoy me. And the slide show begins….

First, we have the messy piles that last for days and then weeks and then months and then years….well you get my drift….

 Next, we have the shoes…they are everywhere….left out for the shoe fairy to put away (P.S. she doesn’t live here)

shoes, shoes everywhere
shoes, shoes everywhere

Then we have one of my personal favorites, the I-just-came-home-let-me-throw-my-crap-down piles that last for days and days..until I complain…

i just came home...where does my stuff go?

Next we have the random crap goes there, right?

And, one of my personal favorites….dirty sinks….yea, it takes two, but I begged that all I wanted for Valentines Day was for Hubby to clean the sinks…cheap right? Did it happen? You be the judge!

dirty sinks...

Moving on, you want me to fold laundry? What laundry?

What laundry?
What laundry?
So, that is your edition of things that the Hubby does to annoy me…on purpose? Maybe not. But probably. Welcome to marriage!
Love ya, Hubby. Now, PLEASE clean the sinks…….

Point Systems


Hubby has been so mean while I have been sick. I mean, sure he went out to get the medicine and sick tea, only after I complained a million times. After all, HE is the one who got me sick in the first place! And of course, I get this bug WAY worse than he ever did!

So, last night, I kicked him out of my “sick nest” of a bed ( I mean come on, I had wads of snotty tissues under the covers with me, would YOU have wanted to share that with me?) and he was definately BITTER. I was going to try and go to work today, but after being awake for half the night with throbbing ears, and a hack that made Patches leave the bed, I figured it would probably be best if I kept my nasty germs to myself. So, this morning, when the alarm went off for Hubby, I dutifully dragged my snotty nose out of bed to go jostle Hubby in the other bed…. and what does he do? He begrudgingly goes to feed the pets and then tries to crawl into MY sick nest. When, I won’t let him in, he bangs on the bed several times and stomps out.

I know, right? HOW MEAN. I quickly fall back asleep to my Nyquill induced dreams of killing him. Yea, I was MAD and my dreams were good.

Then later he comes home at lunchtime, hands full of Jersey Mikes (my favorite sub place EVER) and it was then that I decided I might marry him all over again, despite our morning angst.

Me: You have just earned 20 points. You are on the good list again.

Hubby: Out of how many points? You know, Jersey Mike’s was totally out of my way, right?

Me: 50 total points. You better keep doing good things if you want to be on the good list again!
