I am so lucky to be married to someone who cares about the environment. It doesn't bother me that we now have an impulsively-improvised "compost bin" balanced precariously on top of the kitchen trash can (how long until the cats knock rotting food all over the floor?), blocking 3/4ths of the trash can's opening and also ruining one of the new bins I recently bought for the kids' toys. Nor does it bother me to hear that soon we will be involving worms in this project---possibly before someone moves the project OUTSIDE where it belongs.
I am so lucky to be married to someone who continues over the years to be an active student of life. If the children's Etch-a-Sketch has to be taken apart to harvest parts for an interesting new project, that's a worthwhile investment. Some people's husbands watch TV as a hobby. That must be.....a
I am lucky my husband is not one of those slobs who has to be shoved into the shower. When he takes a 30-minute shower that leaves me no hot water, that's CONSIDERATE of him to keep himself so fresh and clean.
It's good he's having so much success on his diet. He's really dedicated. It impresses me when I bake cookies and he eats just one and then daintily refuses any others, while I hoover up one after another.
ANYONE might accidentally think straight bleach was a reasonable cleaning supply. How is he supposed to know what we use to clean the bathroom, when he's NEVER DONE IT BEFORE?
He's so good to do the dishes when it's my turn. Even if they still have visible crusty food on them, it would be nitpicky of me to criticize what is, after all, a GOOD thing for him to be doing. Effort is worth something, right? Assuming that doing an objectively crappy job---when the person involved is a fully-functional, fully-sighted adult---counts as "effort."
