Day 12 - Something You Never Get Compliments On

My voluptuous breasts...because I don't have any!  :)  


Ok, in all seriousness, I don't get complimented (often enough) on my household management.  That's not something anyone but DH would notice, really, and maybe my family.  I really shouldn't complain too much, since I'm not battling any rugrats either, but it's still a huge amount of work for one person.  I do all of the financial and handle most all of the day to day tasks around our house - I always have.  It's been a good learning/growing experience for me, and I definitely credit it with me truly becoming an adult.  I shoulder a lot of responsibility and a lot of stress because of it, much more than DH, in my mind.  I worry a lot more about what needs to be done around here, what bills need to be paid, how we can make things stretch, etc.  It's probably a good thing that I do it, because I am a control freak, but I'll be glad when I can sit back and relax soon - when things have settled a bit financially and when I'm on vacation!

Ummm... me too. Once I had to have the husband write a check and found that he had practiced on a napkin.

DH can write a check, but he can't log into our online banking.
