left me a sink full of dirty baby bottles. Thanks.
He did get me a cute Snoopy card though, but really, all I really REALLY wanted, was to not wake up with the baby at 5:30am and not be able to find a clean medicine dropper to give her the medicine she needs for her ear infection.
Oh well, at least the kid slept 11 straight hours last night! That was a great Valentine’s Day gift for sure!
He has the ability to redeem himself this evening, so I’m witholding judgement for the moment.
**Also, we don’t need marriage counseling. This is a vent because he is normally very thoughtful and considerate. He messed up this one time, and it irritated me, but not enough to really say anything about it because I’m pretty sure the look on my face said MORE than enough. He got the point 🙂

@DaneLady: My husband left me a stack of dishes (how does one person create a stack of dishes in such a short time?) right by the dishwasher. I thought he might take the extra step and load the dishwasher, but that is a LOT to ask.
Maybe I need therapy, too, lol.

@MrsPanda99: Lol, no if it’s HIS dishes laying in the sink beside the dishwasher, I leave them. Poor BabyDane needed her medicine, and all our droppers were in the sink. I even ran the soapy water last night!! I mean, COME ON- is that a hint or what?
Oh well. Like I said, normally he is thoughtful, but work for him has been crazy lately. I am irritated but not pissed.
Oooooooh-saaaaaaahhhh. I need yoga.

@DaneLady: My husband is normally very thoughtful, too. I’m sure I do things that annoy him as well so I just sighed, rolled my eyes, and loaded the dishwasher. Men!

@DaneLady: I recommend couple’s counseling, ASAP.
Kidding. Snoopy card counts for something, right?

My hubby also left me the dirty dishes this morning from last nights baking/wine drinking, so I left them for when he gets home from work!

@DaneLady: Clearly he doesn’t think enough of you, and is passive-aggressively telling you he hates you by leaving the dishes, and also he was not ready for kids because he can’t be perfect all the time. Counseling is in order immediately, and if not, you need to leave now.
JK, but I would definitely make my FI clean them unless he was in a rush or having a bad day (then I would do it for him).

@DaneLady: Hey you, guess what, My DH got me the exact same gift for V Day! A pile of dirty dishes and a pile of dirty laundry next to the washing machine with an email saying “can you load the wahing machine, i need pants (underwear)”, not even a Happy Valentines!
Oh well. Mean while i have spent the day cooking him a nice beef casserole and have fitted all of the stair gates, cleaned the house for a viewing AND i have to work tonight at the Pub.
At least he has booked for me and my mum to have a Spa day tomorrow, so i cant really complain.

@ChocolateLime: Oh girl. I would be mad! At least DH wished me a happy V day! Enjoy your spa day, I’m SO jealous 😛

I was super impressed that my Hubs “cleaned” the kitchen the other day while I was at work, and I came home to an empty sink. Too bad yesterday I realized that he *loaded* the dishwasher but didn’t *run* the dishwasher (and yes, it was full)….duh…so now I went to empty and refill the washer with the new dirty dishes and they’ll just have to sit for another day and wait. Men are so weird sometimes.
