Printed some grocery coupons from Swagbucks

Put wash into the dryer
Made coffee, cooked breakfast
Took the rest of my medications
Let the dog in
Gathered towels, face cloths, sponge, dish cloth, dish towel and pot holders to wash
Washed a load of towels
Read the Bible
Gathered ash tray, pop cans and travel mug out of son's bathroom
Put clean hand towels in the kitchen and son's bathroom
Emptied and washed the ash try

I still feel tired after days of stomach problems. I listed what I did just to show hubby that I did something. He was in an awful mood all day yesterday and tried to pick a fight several times. I seethed on the inside, but did not answer him.

    When we had outdoor cats, such a list would read, "let the cat out. Let the cat in. Let the cat out. Let the cat in...."ad infinitum!

    Welp, I'm gonna confess when I read that 5 times up 'n down the stairs~ I just didn't have the strength to read that mighty long list of all you did, you Superwoman. It's been a 12~hour day and I'm beat. *hugs* And I'm so sorry about your tummy probs~ pray you are well soon. emoticon BB~ emoticon emoticon

    You did the right thing not feeding into the fight. I do the same thing. Even if it means I go for a walk to get away, I do that! My DH doesn't have a clue as to all I do in a day either. But, whatever. I do it and that's that.

    HUGS! Hope he's in a better mood!

    My husband would get moody when he was not feeling well. Perhaps he is worried about his surgery.

    I know how you feel re writing out a list of what you do. DB used to come home from work and it often felt as if, being 7+years older and thus retired earlier than him, I rather had to justify that he hadn't been the only one 'working'! I did a list just like yours on a few occasions, and those little jobs seemed to be so petty when committed to print - but hey, they don't just magic themselves done! The laundry fairy, the dishwasher wizard, the pop can collector and washer-upper don't just breeze through like ectoplasm! All the traipsing back and forth takes TIME, even if it's mundane stuff. Now that DB is retired, he is incredulous about how little time we have to just sit and relax - and now that I have welcomed him to MY world, he has admitted that the hours he spent on the squadron were mostly less frenetic than running the home! Oh yes, you won't be the first and you won't be the last wife to write a little list. Now then, let's start on the topic of loos and the men who think that they magically stay pristine without women quietly being the unsung heroines of 'rest room' cleaning………!

    Aaaarrrrghghgh!!! Keep your chin up, lass!

    I think men have PMS too, they would just never admit it! Hope your tummy gets better soon. So hard to work and not feel good.

    My hubby gets like that sometimes. I point it out when he gets like that - - MEN!!

    Sometimes people have to let out their frustrations and its possible its not even about you personal. We often get in a mood over things we can't seem to understand. At the same time don't you start getting frustrated too. Talk a walk or talk to a friend about something meaningless just to have a calm conversation....

    God bless & be encouraged!
