Hubby may then be inclined to point out all of the things he did do, besides going to work:
- Mow the lawn
- Fertilize the lawn
- Do the laundry
- Buy groceries
- Carpet-fresh the basement so it doesn't reek of stinky dogs (it does smell good now)
You'll remember a recent "lesson" to yourself: Given your tendency to get perfectionistic and nit-pick when stressed, if you find yourself wanting to point out something Hubby hasn't done or didn't do perfectly, it is probably best to wait 24 hours before bringing it up. Because, after 24 hours, you'll have relaxed, put things in perspective, and most likely won't care anymore. You may even realize you are being unrealistic, not to mention unappreciative of the million things your kind and considerate husband does do. And you'll be really glad you didn't say anything. If it does still matter the next day, you can go right on and bring it up in a thoughtful (i.e., non-reactive) way.
Someone remind me to read this post next time I go on vacation.
