Before he opened it, he must have thought, "Mmmmm! Cauliflower Cheese made with Gorgonzola! Can't wait!"
@federica I do, and have followed through. I have thrown away (mostly donated) clothes, toys, all sorts of things. Yesterday my middle son came home to his bed full of the recycling he didn't bring out. But as they are getting older, it's much more difficult to throw away things like cell phones, cameras, tablets etc. I do confiscate them. But the behavior is always short lived to earn it back. In one case, my son lost his tech stuff for 3 months, and went right back to his habits. I keep on them, they all have chores, but it's more work for me to stand over them while they do everything than to just do it (I know, ,that's my fault and a bad habit of my own). But at this point, my husband is probably the worst and I've been working on that with him for 10 years now. His mom worked full time, but still played the perfect house wife. Made brownies for his friends, did all the house work, did all the cooking, etc etc. So in his mind, since I stay home it's my job, despite the fact that it's HIS mess and he disregards the fact that it's my job to do things like clean the bathroom, taxi the kids around etc. It's NOT my job to be his mother or his maid. We're still working on it. The other day, I put his pile of dirty socks in his work lunch box
It's doing the rounds ( that's cyclic existence for ya )
Oh @lobster....! How old is that joke....?
I used to enjoy cleaning, and I still enjoy the end result. But not the process because my time is spent cleaning up after others who have no care or respect for the fact I am stuck with their messes because I am the only one who cares. If I lived alone, I suspect I would enjoy it much more as I wouldn't be picking up dirty socks from the kitchen table or bread crust from between the couch cushions, lol.
Q: Why do Buddhist vacuum cleaners suck?
A: No attachments.
Darn you lobster. I thought you should have written blimp instead of blip. But that would not be taking the high road at all! Failed again!
