Silent fume.

by doodaddy on December 8, 2007

It’s more frustrating than anything to expect gratitude and get only disappointment.

While Working Mom and Boobaby were out for their Saturday bonding, I got the washer/dryer installed and dozens of boxes put away and broken down. I was just off-loading the cooler full of cosmetics when the girls came home.

“Oh, I had a different idea about where those would go,” she said, unceremoniously.

I’ve no doubt she did. I do doubt, however, that they would have been put away before the new year. Or Valentine’s Day. In 2013. WM has an incredibly high tolerance for things like boxes sitting everywhere. I do not.

Sigh. I get that this is i way in which we’re different, she and I, and we have to compromise. Still, can’t I get a little bitty thanks for a morning of appliance installation, at least?

You and my hubs are alike – I can live with a certain amount of disarray – and he is a neat.freak! It must drive him crazy, but I’m too scared to ask!

We had to buy a new dishwasher – he’ll be installing it tomorrow – I’ll be very sure to say thanks! 😉
