Letters of Intent

I'm linking up again for Letters of Intent Friday!  Go check out more letters over at Foursons by clicking the picture below!




Foursons


Dear Husband,

I don't think you understand just how much you are irking me lately.  Yes you're right, our two older boys are with your mom this week for spring break so I only have Avery (the 3 year old) home with me.  Yes you're right that with 2 of the 3 gone it's a lot easier on me.  Yes you're right that things are less hectic around here.

But let me tell you something.  I have EVERY right, I have DESERVED to slack off this week.  Yes you're right, the laundry hasn't been done, I haven't steam cleaned the couch like I said I was going to, I haven't cleaned the bathrooms, and I haven't mopped the floors.  I have spent a GOOD PORTION of this week sitting on my butt.

Just because I haven't done everything you've wanted me to do, doesn't mean I haven't done anything at all.  I DO still have a 3 year old here with me.  A 3 year old that needs a little more attention then just turning on the TV and leaving him sit there.  A 3 year old that STILL has therapy and appts and stuff to take him to.

How dare you act as if I haven't done ANYTHING this week.  I deserve to take a week off when I finally after 6 months get a break.  I still have cleaned up, and vacummed and I have still taken care of things around here.  Just not to the extent that YOU think is ok.

Do me a favor, and until you are home all day long with 3 kids (one of which has issues that need to be dealt with) don't tell me what I should and should not be getting accomplished during the day.

Sincerely,
Your loving wife who is about to bop you upside the head with your "to do" list you left me this morning.

popping by from Julie's place ...

he left you a to-do list? You know where you can tell him to keep that list don't you?
If I were you, I'd do LESS today. Maybe even get a sitter for the little guy so you can lay on the couch all day and really do nothing.


Oh I love reading blogs written by married women ... affirms why I chose not to go down that road ;) But then it really sucks when I need man stuff done around the house ... sigh ...

Visiting from Julie's place.

Oh hell no he didn't!!! MEN

If my hubby left me a to do list, he'd find it where the sun doesn't shine!!! hahahahahaha

Rachel said...

Please tell me you have a "honey do" list for him too? :)

Kara @ His, Hers and Ours said...

That list would be put somewhere where the sun don't shine. He's, uh, pretty, ballsy, huh?

You are 150% right. You DESERVE and have EARNED the right to sit on your butt if you want to. Mommies need a break, too!! Good luck!

Stopped by from Fourson's. ;) Have a great weekend!!

oooooooo, i agree! bop him somewhere with that to do list. i think if my hubby did that i would purposly not do it. Enjoy your week with just Avery...though i guess that is coming to an end soon.

Oh no he didn't! No man better leave a To-Do list for a SAHM!!! Oh girl, I feel your pain. Maybe you can give him a good kick while he's sleeping and blame it on a leg cramp.

Thanks for linking up and throw that list in the trash!

OMG !!! He left you a to do list !!!????

I would soooooo never ever ever accept that from my husband, they HONESTLY dont understand that us SAHM's have a life outside of being their personal servants !

When I had my daughter 17 yrs ago I asked my husband to take her to the store with him so I can get some rest, his response " how am I supposed to pay "

Ummm moron she is in the stroller your wallet is in your pants pocket !!!!

Do they not understand that a woman's work is never done, I think your husband is a very lucky man to have you for a wife.

Taking care of a special needs child is a full time job in itself !

Good luck !
