I’m sharing this post with Monday Listacles, the list is supposed to be “10 way’s my partner is awesome” Well, I guess I am taking this challenge on a little twisty turny ride, so sue me. So this will double as my Happy Husband Sunday post.
So for those of you who never complain about your husband, you might want to stop reading now. Without further ado, this will be a countdown.
10. He does the laundry without being asked. Randomly. However when he does the laundry, he finds the clearest space he can and deposits it there, a few toys, some books, no matter. There it will remain unfolded until, through a silent war of attrition, I fold it.
9. He empties the dishwasher. However after 13 years living in the same house, he doesn’t know where anything that isn’t a dish or glass goes, so he leaves them on the counter for me to put away.
8. He sells things on Ebay for extra spending money. However his special brand of
ADD organization creates chaos in our basement.
7. He has 2 jobs, he’s a real breadwinner! One of which is in sales, that involves a lot of paperwork. Did I mention he is lacking in organizational skills? It’s my fault when he can’t find something.
6. He cuddles with the dogs on the sofa at night. Awwww….. This is what he leaves for me in the morning.
5. He sells computers. So if I need something all I need to do is find it.
4. He doesn’t stink up our bathroom. This is
his the guest bathroom.
3. Did I mention he has two jobs, so great, right? He needs them to pay for his habit, these are tennis shirts, this is only half of his closet.
2. He is handy. He just never has time to fix anything.
1. He loves our boy.

The last picture is so cute! The dishes! We used to that issue, but he knows where everything goes now, for the most part. If he doesn’t, then he just puts it away wherever he thinks it’s supposed to go, which means I’m sometimes looking for things around the kitchen. Ha!
He puts things in their own “special” places too. I think he just can’t decide which will make me madder, if I can’t find the measuring cup or if I have to put it away myself!
Oh that pile of papers!! He’s lucky he does dishes and laundry or he’d be toast! 🙂
I’m sorry. He doesn’t actually DO dishes, he empties the dishwasher onto the COUNTER, every once in a blue moon. He also does laundry the same way, completely randomly AND he gets my white socks in with my darks. The papers are the least of my worries, because they are in the basement and I can pretend they don’t exist!
When did you sneak into my house????? Your title cracked me up and other than my husband has golf instead of tennis shirts and does Craigslist instead of eBay…..
Very funny!!! 😀
Ha ha ha! I won’t let him do Craigslist, because he would be running out the door (we call him Rabbit, as in Alice in Wonderland) and he would yell to me, “Honey a serial killer is coming to get some shirts, make sure you’re here!”
THIS.IS.AWESOME. In every single way! Let’s just say that one of us can greatly relate to the dishes thing!! 😉 You rocked this topic!-The Dose Girls
Why thank you very much ladies 🙂 this was easy, as long as I could do it my way. I actually had 15 but didn’t want to over-do it!
Apparently we are married to the same man – my hubby is the exact same way!! I was laughing and nodding with every single thing. Isn’t it nice to know you’re not alone? 😉
Following you from Monday Mingle! 🙂
I am amazed at how not alone we are! What is it with these men? If it was survival of the fittest, we’d be a planet of women!
This post made me smile. It is so real and I like that. Right now my hubby better hope I don’t write a top 10 on him! LoL Not even 9 am here in Ky. and he is already in the dog house! 😀
Oh do I know that. My husband leaves before I wake up, and I basically have to re-clean the kitchen that was clean when I went to bed!
Sounds about right. How DO you do the wash without a washer door?
At your mothers house. Which also means having to have a conversation with her, which earns my husband more negative points. Meanwhile my brother-in-law came and fixed it.
Cracking up babe, great list. Yes, of course #10 is the best, at the end of the day that’s the most important right? My hubby still doesn’t know where anything is or what he needs to do, LOl
I guess it’s just too much to ask. 🙂
Visiting from Mom’s Monday Mingle. OMG this is absolutely hysterical! I hope you’ll share it at this week’s Friday Flash Blog on The Jenny Evolution (www.thejennyevolution.com). Would love to have you join our community.
Thanks! I just recently discovered your Friday Flash Blog last week, I’m happy to post! Thank you!
I laughed out loud at your photos! A picture really is worth a thousand words – the dishwasher one was my favorite.
It never changes. Today my husband washed rags with clothes! WHAT?
Yo awesome chickie! SO FUNNY. Love that after 13 years he still doesn’t know where things go. My husband always leaves the tupperware on the counter after emptying the dishwasher. When I ask why, he tells me that it needed to dry more. Really?
That pile of papers is hilarious. Our “office” has a bed in it for guests. The bed has more paper than a dump site.
Super adorable photo at the end! Mwah, TTTx10!
Thank you lady! Thank goodness our office is not our guest-room! I am guessing you guys don’t have guests? So where am I sleeping?
His desk looks oddly familiar… I have on just like it. Well, not what’s underneath, just the piles and piles of crap covering it. My husband hates it.
Ahhh….so you are one of them. My desk actually looks like that too, but it’s because my husband puts every piece of information he thinks I need, or every receipt I tell him to save on MY desk.
Blog hopping from TCM Monday Mingle – a little bit of both but it seems like you are all truly blessed!!! Enjoy the rest of your week.
Especially because he doesn’t kill me for writing these posts 🙂
The last picture was PERFECT.
Thank you 🙂
I love it. My hubby always leaves me wet napkins in his cup of milk that has been soaked in cookie goo. Isnt that sweet
I get so mad at him, he’ll use the LAST of the milk to dip cookies in. Then only use half the milk. Meanwhile, we have a child that needs that milk!
Love that last photo! And because you were on a roll – I didn’t see anything “wrong” in the bathroom photo – just typical! LOL!
Nice one! That was actually pretty tame. He takes all of the mail into the guest bathroom, and then leaves it scattered all over the floor, bills and all. This time it was just too many catalogs. I should have taken the photo of me chasing the dog who had our auto registration renewal in his mouth, because his poppy left it on the floor in the bathroom!
We might maybe live in te same house. Laundry…check (except add shrinkage of my clothing only. HOW does that happen).
Office and filing spaces….exact matches!
Dishes don’t sit on the counter but they do get shoved anywhere the fit despite my having developed a great organization system
I feel ya! He breaks the cardinal rules constantly 1)NEVER wash the child’s clothes with rags. 2)Never mix darks and whites. I don’t think I have two matching white socks.
LOVE the title of your post and all of the photos that accompanies your list. The emptying the dishwasher one had me in tears…he doesn’t know where the other stuff goes…I think that’s a lot of men.
The worst is when he actually puts something away in the wrong place, I’ll ask him where he put it, and he’s all, I don’t even know what your talking about! What is that thing anyway??
The pictures make the post. Yikes!
Although, I did notice…
Are you telling us that your husband looks at the hanna andersson catalogue? 🙂
I am a frustrated photographer, so my posts get the benefit. AND yes! He actually circles the items he thinks I should buy for our son!
I love this post!!! So funny and such a patient wife. Co hosting with you on raising Reagan hop.
Hey, my husband must be related to your husband!!! Small world, eh? 🙂
Lol, this is funny. It’s nice to pick in to the minds of the ladies sometimes. Now I know what to do to make my wifey really happy. 😉 thanks.
I don’t know if I’m a really good example, I’d check out the other listicle ladies, cause they seem to have some pretty awesome husband mojo. Not to say mine isn’t awesome, just, you know.
This totally cracks me up! My husband doesn’t know where anything goes in our kitchen either. It makes me crazy!
Just unloaded the dishes in the middle of the night, I should be so happy right? Well there they all are, on the kitchen counter, again.
It’s funny because many of these things I do myself. My husband and I kind of trade turns being the organized one.
If I fall behind just a little bit, the place goes to hell. I wish I could not be the organized one 🙂
Umm, we use the same butter???!!!! What? This discovery literally solidifies my eternal love for you. Fer shiz, legit, The End.
WHAT??!!! Well that’s it then, it’s kismet. I have to speak show tunes, I don’t speak gangsta. Can you teach me gangsta?
What an awesome photo at the end. Well, his desk might be messy — but his shirts look so neat. I’m messy and it shows in my desk and closet. And any guy who unloads the dishwasher is a keeper. 🙂
and does laundry, however infrequently. And anyway, if I didn’t keep him, I think the boy would get mad.
My husband said he would do the laundry, but forewarned me that he only recognizes lights and darks as categories. Sigh. He does unload the dishwasher, though, and actually knows where stuff goes. He should, since he organized the kitchen, lol. Love the last pic, natch.
That all sounds pretty good to me. Today my husband put away the maple syrup, it took me 20 minutes to find it. Not in the fridge, in a cupboard, with no other food in it.
Love it! I would totally have murdered my husband by now if he wasn’t such an amazing dad.
