Remember my Happy Anniversary post-it-note post from last week?
I got this comment in response:
"Buy the book 'Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands' by the great Dr. Laura. (She can be a little whacked, but on this she is correct!
She'd kick your behind for not cooking dinner, especially if he cooks breakfast.
All guys, even nice guys like him (Jason), only take not being appreciated for so long.
Life, marriage and even companionships, are a 2 way street. I didn't notice in your Post It Note Style what you do for him..."
I have a pretty good inclination of who wrote this...and if I'm right I just roll my eyes and shake my head...
The comment came AFTER I cooked Jason, and my entire family, dinner. See, I didn't say I never fixed dinner, I just said my husband didn't care if I didn't.
And of course I didn't say what I do for him...for a couple of reasons: I'll never write on this blog the things I might do for Jason...because seriously, who really wants to say "look at all of the good things I do for my husband" AND because it was a list of the reasons I'm grateful for him.
BUT...lest you think I don't take all comments seriously...even the comments that make me roll my eyes...I had a conversation with Jason last night.
"Jason, am I not appreciative enough? Do you doubt that I appreciate and love you?"
And then he rolled his eyes.
This morning as I was getting ready for work Jason said, "Do you want anything for breakfast?"
And with a mouthful of toothpaste I replied, "No, I don't think so. I wouldn't want you to feel unappreciated."
He put the milk and the cereal on the table anyway...right next to some fruit.
