Broccoli Sprouts & Husbands

Post  sfg4uKim on 4/22/2012, 8:13 am

Guess that should be singular since I only have one husband.

Hubby had Friday off and wanted us to go see a movie. I totally hate going to the theater & I told him that the only way I could go was if he promised to help me clean the house in preparation for a SFG class.

We got back from the movie & he cleaned the kitchen (in the same time it took me to do the bathroom, living room, dining room & office PLUS the front porch and back deck).

Getting ready for the class on Saturday morning I was looking for the just-ready-to-harvest Broccoli Sprouts. (now where did those sprouts go?) Oh well, they DID just look like damp paper towels in a zippy bag.

I do have to be in the habit of checking the garbage can for things that aren't supposed to be in there. But that's because of my 1 y.o. boy, not my husband. tongue

What movie did you see?

Mine usually disappear after planting. Hollyhocks vs. Mower. Any bets which always wins? I have learned to plant ONLY in designated, clearly defined beds - preferably raised so no chance of mower invasion!

Plus side? Hubby is VERY thorough at mowing - lawn looks much better after he does it instead of me!

There isn't anything I would not sacrifice for date-night (or afternoon) with my guy. I don't care how long it takes him to clean the kitchen, I love that he will. He must really like you.

Lol. I'm the total opposite. I would sacrifice anything for a date night (or afternoon) and my wife would be the one tossing the sprouts Razz
