I don't usually do this here

It's not often that I vent on here. I mean, whatever it is usually gets around to everyone anyways because that's my style. I do that typical girl thing where you tell one person and then you tell another and then you email some of your friends about it and then you tell your coworkers and then you tell your coworkers that you only see during lunch and then you get home and tell your husband and then you call your mom and then you tell your personal trainer that night at the gym and by the next day you can't really remember who you've told so you stop talking about it until a week later when you're out with friends and one of the friends that you did tell brings it up, but the other's don't know what you're talking about so you have to do it all over again. Yeah. You know what I'm talking about.

Well at 7:30 this morning I got a call from John. He's all sorts of pissed off that I left the dogs outside. I do this EVERY MORNING. I let the dogs out and he lets them in. This has NEVER BEEN AN ISSUE. Except for today. Because apparently it’s raining and he had to clean off their feet. Just like he’s had to do for the past 3 days. However today, me suddenly not doing this for him makes me lazy. Yeah, so let’s compare:

My morning routine:
Get Up
Make Coffee
Make Lunch
Feed and water dogs
Water the plants (soon it will also be the lawn as we try once again to grow grass)
Finish getting ready
Let dogs out
Take out trash (if it’s a trash day)
Make my travel mug of coffee
Make some kind of quick breakfast that I can eat on the way
Drop bills in the mail
And on occasion make dinner in the crockpot

John’s morning routine:
Get up late
Watch internet TV while getting ready
Eat Breakfast while watching the Today show
Let dogs in and OH MY GOD sometimes have to clean their feet on the rare occasions that we actually have rain because you know, we live in Texas, land of perpetual drought.

I rest my case.


  1. Oh I feel for ya-I hate situations like that. No fun.

  2. Ugh, I totally agree! Men are such babies. Tell John I have to clean GREAT DANE paws and to suck it up :o)

    p.s. I think trash is his job

  3. LOL. My routine is very similar to yours and DH's routine is very similar to John's. And we have a very similar argument.


  4. Yeah, trash should be his job - he does empty all the trash cans around the house, but the trash guys come super early and he's not usually up by the time they come so it falls to me.

  5. I hear you. Jason NEVER remembers to clean out the litter box. NEVER. I get tired of doing it.
