New and Improved!

I was told by a friend the other day that by reading my blog, whatever mood I happen to be in that day becomes apparent. I do really wonder if it's true, but deep down I think I know the answer.

But to see if it really holds true, I thought I'd post a new blog today and see what happens. I had been planning on showing off my new print that I listed on Etsy, but well, it's just not what I want to write about today. Instead, I thought I'd write about my future husband. Future I say because, of course, I'm already married and overall quite happily so. But my current husband has a slight propensity towards blowing up small appliances. Today I'm without my sidekick radio and music due another such occurance.

A girl can only take so many blown up appliances in her life without really losing it and I fear I may be quickly approaching that limit. And so if I could take my current model and download an upgrade by requesting a few minor adjustments, I would truly appreciate it.

Here is my list of requirements that the new improved hubby would need, in addition to his standard options of romantic, funny, kind, thoughtful, helpful, intelligent, honest, handsome and hardworking. I think you'll find I'm really very reasonable to say the least.

1 - Must not touch anything electrical in the house. Ever.
2 - Must come with an integrated stop watch so that dinner is never burned. Ever.
3 - Must love to do DIY. Non-electrical of course.
4 - Must have a highly developed organisational gene. Particularly in regards to the garage. And particularly on bin day.
5 - Must come with an integrated gps system allowing him to be easily located in situations requiring his participation. Such as impending birth.

I'm sure there are a few other options that could be added to my very reasonable list, but I'll stop at just 5. Mustn't be too greedy after all.

But if he could come with an on/off switch too....

Can't imagine what you're talking about! Surely his list is very short and complete. :D

kraplap said...

hmmmmm very familiar; can I borrow your list ?

I would replace No. 1 with... needs a volume control overnight due to snoring and replace No.5 with...must stop bringing bits, bobs and gadgets into our already overflowing home.

Other than that, I wouldn't change him for the world, say awww!

LOL LOL :D
I think this is the third time I'm reading about your hubby with a blown up appliances!! What the hell does he do with them, how does he manage that all?
I think your list is very descent, maybe you should hang it on the fridge so that he sees it daily and he will work on it?
Good luck Gretchen, I wish you much patience :)

An organizational gene would be very appreciated at home as well!!

I would love to see his list as well :P

Hope Spencer said...

Might I add, "Must not ever question 'questionable' checkbook entries?" One day my husband will figure out that SB stands for Stamping Bella and not the new grocery store I keep telling him it stands for.

LOL!! Too funny, Gretchen!

I think I will forego the list. After all, my husband is perfect just he way he is. :) Besides, I would NOT want to read the list he would make for me. Let's just call it even! LOL

my hubby is pretty good with electronics, and not too bad with organization. I have to stop him from touching electronics sometimes not because he will break them, but because they often end up in parts and changed into something else

My hubby's the same - but with dishes/glasses!

have a nice weekend,

My hubby is so not DIY. I'm the one with the toolbox in the family. Leaking toilet I know it is I who must fix it.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Spotted Sparrow said...
