A husband's nightmare:
Edited on Thu Aug-03-06 10:15 PM by caty
A husbands nightmare...

A man came home from work and found his three children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the front yard. The door of his wife's car was open, as was the front door to the house and there was no sign of the dog.

Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess. A
lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall.
In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items
of clothing. In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a smal l pile of sand was spread by the back door.
He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she may be ill, or that something serious had happened.
He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bath room door. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls.
As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel. She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went.
He looked at her bewildered and asked, "What happened here today?" She again smiled and answered, "You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world did I do today?" "Yes," was his incredu lous reply.
She answered, "Well, today I didn't do it."


Of course, this could go both ways. The husband could come home with his paycheck one day short and say: "Well, one day last week--I didn't do it".

1. LOL... I can relate.
I wrote this whole thing about how I could relate...then realized the post should be in a support group LOL....

so I'll just laugh at the irony of it, and the wit. It's good to be able to laugh at things that are just real life...

2. Me too!
Although my hubby isn't one to ask THAT question, there are many days I feel like I am a hamster on one of those wheels, running and never getting anywhere.

3. It's like shoveling snow in a snowstorm.
Some days I want to throw in the towel, but then the next day will be even harder ...
