The Best Hubby EVAH!

Have I mentioned I have the best hubby ever?

Before he left for Massachusettes last week, we had a conversation that went like this:

Hubby: I have an assignment for you this week.
Me: What? (rolling eyes)
Hubby: I want you to clean your closet out.
Me: Okay. I have an assignment for you this week.
Hubby: What's that?
Me: [expletive] off.


I couldn't help it!! He totally set himself up for it! Don't freak out on me people--he knew it was a joke.

What on earth is wrong with my closet???

Who cares if I still have all my work suits hanging up, even though it's been a full YEAR since my last day at work. And who cares if my maternity clothes are laying all over the floor, even though I haven't worn them since before Midget was born nearly EIGHTEEN MONTHS ago. AND who cares if I have four out of the five laundry baskets in the house piled with said maternity clothes and dirty clothes to wash??

Errrr, maybe I ought to clean out my closet... But, just to be a rebel, I didn't do it last week while he was gone. " )

Fast forward to Tuesday morning, when Hubby was walking out the door to go to North Carolina.

Hubby: I have another assignment for you this week.
Me: Yeeeeeah, because last week's went so well, right?? (sarcastically, of course)
Hubby: I want you to blog this week.
Me: *gasp*


So not only did he buy me a new camera, but he wants me to blog??

Hmmmmm, methinks he's going to ask for a new TV...


Kat said... just might be on to something. A few years ago I was watching TV and Michael had fallen asleep on the couch. I was using the onscreen guide and couldn't read it. I muttered "we need a bigger TV." Next thing I know, he has popped off the couch. Gotten his wallet and keys. Was out the door. And we had a new TV. :-)

Wow yeah... he probably wants a new (something electronic).

Your closet sounds like mine. Well, minus the work clothes and maternity clothes.

Blissful Babe said...

Wow, man. It could totally be anything. Maybe he's going to call California Closets or something, or Ty Pennington to re-do your space or some chit.

Hell, I dunno.
But he's up to something.

Oh, while he's up to something, have him send one of those sexy lil beasts my way. Mmkay? Thanks.

Man, that sounds JUST like my closet and my husband! He hates my messy closet. I try to explain that it doesn't matter if I organize it, because a week later it will just be messy again! So why waste my time?? But not ONCE ever has he told me to blog!!! Oh yeah, something is up big time... Or maybe he's trying reverse psycology? Don't fall for it! Ha!

Brandy said...

Maybe he's just came to terms with the inevitable. :]

Dr. Wifey said...

i think he might be trying to use some reverse psychology on ya ;p

Amie said...

**** off...that made me spit out my cereal! ;)

Annikke said...

You crack me up!

I totally agree that he is UP to something! LOL

Anonymous said...

Bwahahaha...Oh, it's been so long since I told dh to *expletive* off!

I think you're right to suspect he wants a new tv. ;D

Deanna said...

It isn't too long until April Fool's Day... if you can hold out you could always say, "Why put this all away when I need it? SURPRISE!" Plus, if he faints he will have a nice place to land.

LadyStyx said...

LOL!! He's tryin the ol reverse phychology on ya! I hope ya didnt fall for it.

theArthurClan said...

I think you've got him all figured out Carrie!

Hey ~ just send him to my house. Once he sees my mess he'll fall on his knees begging your for forgiveness and never complain to you about your mess again. ;)

Christian said...

pretty sure that is called reverse psyhcology...just clean your closet and make him the happiest man on the planet!

I'm amazed by the misplaced skepticism in this string of comments. The closet and the blogging assignments had nothing to do with each other. I just wanted her to have a fun week with bloggy friends while I was gone. I got her the camera because I love her, and because I needed my camera back for work photography, and I could care less about her closet, but damn its messy (there could be critters living in there). By the way, what is reverse phychology?
