He said WHAT?!

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
So tonight when I came home, I was fixing supper and vacuuming, and John was relaxing on the couch- no big deal, I was tired and wanted to rest too, but things must be done. He works in the heat and it was about 95* today and he was just beat.... I get to work in the AC all day in a comfy chair... I wasn't gonna complain OR ask him to do anything!

While I was vacuuming, I asked him to quickly check dinner in the oven, he said sure, no problem! He goes to the kitchen, and comes back out and tells me that he can't tell if its done yet... and asked if I would like HIM to finish vacuuming!

I stopped and almost fainted! He's not a cleaner, and never helps out much, but thats okay, I'd rather do it myself so its done right... but you better believe that I shoved that vacuum so fast before he could change his mind!

He finished the whole apartment for me and put it away!

I thought I died for a second, I think thats the first time I've ever heard him OFFER to help me clean! Maybe its because he was just really hungry and didn't want supper to be burned in the oven

Either way, it was nice

hehe, something must be up...

You might in the near future hear ... "remember that day I vacuumed..." when he wants his next big ticket item

Seriously...that's great when guys help out around the house without having to be poked and prodded to do so!!!! Yay for him!!! <insert clapping icon here>

PS: How come the visible smilies to the right of the reply box change?!! I can't be bothered to open the "more" and dig through all of them so I just use what is in the selection of 12 to the right of the reply window. And now the ones I like to use are gone again

Drat. Here I thought he said he wanted to really get a 3rd kitty!

That IS nice! Good thing you let him do it, too, otherwise he wouldn't ever offer again, thinking you want to do it all the time!

Definitely a keeper! That's so sweet! Good you took him up on it, can't let that rare opportunity pass you by. And I'm sure you'll thank him sincerely for it!

That is sweet. I am lucky, my DH (John as well) cooks and cleans constantly, but then again he is a bit of a neat freak. I don't vaccuum well enough for his liking.

I guess I'm really lucky because my wonderful bf does not hesitate to help out no matter what the job. Of course I always "get to help" when it comes to haying or some project on the farm..

SURE! I forgot to add, that while I was multi-tasking... fixing supper, cleaning up the kitchen, he also picked up the living room!

Must be something in the air! Last night Matt vacuumed the open floor in th afamily room (cuz the litter was driving him nuts) all on his own. I can't even say it was so I could make dinner cuz he did that too... he also did the dishes!

they change them from time to time... most of us have them memorized... the clapping one is just the word clap in between a set of :____: these.... Alot of them are just the word of description, like nausea between :___: looks like .... see?

Wow!! Maybe he can come teach John a thing or two! He could use some tips on how to clean.... thats because he doesn't clean at all, but I'd rather him not, becuase when he does, he does a 1/2 job! That makes me angry

So does Matt... thats why I do most of the cleaning. Example: He ONLY vacuumed about half of the floor exposed where as I even move tables and things. I also have to load the dishwasher for him (he gets the gunk off first) otherwise we'd only get about half a load in at a time. The one thing he does very well is cooking!
