OK after MiteyF's post I'm confused. I was thinking we were being honest and leaning on each other for support and ideas. Now are we supposed to see who can come up with the best lie and act like we have the wisdom to stay on top?
I'd have posted a picture, but I don't think she'd like that much :biggrin:
That's funny, my fiance's bday is this Monday, so last weekend we went out and got her what she's been dying to have for I-couldn't-tell-you-how-long... a Kitchenaid mixer. And yes, she loves it.My wife was older than most when we got married. She was also more practical. I asked what she wanted for our first anniversary and she said "A Kitchenaide Mixer". So that's what I got her. She's still using it 30 years later and thanking me for it every time. Then she tells the story to her friends and they say "oh you poor dear" and give me "the look". Funny, huh?
Missed this before. You guys wanna know the secret(s)? Here it is.I think that MiteyF should share his knowledge somehow. Maybe write a how to manual or develop a decoder ring or something.
She is luckier having you than me...but I'm not sure that makes her lucky on the grand scale.I had to chuckle a bit at this thread... I'm a (relative to you old farts) fairly young(ish) fella in my 30's (for 3 more years anyways) and with 2 young kids. My wife and I are naturally frazzled which comes with having a 4 year old and a teething 10 month old. We've been married 10 years now and I have spent a few well earned evenings on the couch.
Well this past weekend was a fun stress filled weekend of family engagements that included the baptism of our baby girl, my mother, her mother, and well that's enough for anyone right? I'd left my computer open where I had just received an email from an IAP member that will remain nameless (name rhymes with Craig Shardy) where he was making a joke about my wife not being appreciative of having me rather than being stuck with a grouchy old dinosaur such as himself.
As you can imagine the keywords she saw were: Wife, Ungrateful, Unappreciative.
My son came and got me because he was worried about mommy crying in the shower. THAT one was fun.
