I'm Still Here

Well, the trial isn't over yet. I still have to go through the sentencing stage. Thank you to those of you who were witnesses for the Defense. I am hoping for a dismissal, pardon or a short term parole, but I am afraid that I may have to go through the rest of my life with a scarlet ADL on my forehead. If anyone else would like to take the stand as a character witness on my behalf during this sentencing phase, please leave your testimony in the comments section. Surely there are some of you out there that can attest to the fact that I am of good character or at least that I am a character!

Are you sure that you have a working email address? Does that rodentme address reach you? I still get notices back that it doesn't reach you. I don't guess it matters, but I sometimes like to use email when I want to be longer, louder, or loonier.

Let us know what your sentence is. I left other comments on the post below.

However, I think there is more to your hubby's thoughts about the computer that he is letting on. I'm thinking he's feeling neglected. I'm not saying that you ARE neglecting him. He's just acting as though HE thinks he is being neglected.

Just my two pennies. :)

Are you sure you are putting the H into Rhodent?

Adrienne may be onto something there. I have discovered through my own and other peoples blogs that partners of bloggers often feel left out. It won't be long before we hear of the 'Blogging Partners Anonymous' group. But as to the housework stuff, stand your ground. I'll back you up.

I will gladly attest that you are a character, and a good one!

I have to agree that all the fuss may be because of your pc time. If that is it, too bad he cannot just tell you so, or maybe he thinks he is.

Rhodent, You might try the way Marilyn and I do it. Let things pile up and then call and invite friends over for dinner. Then scream, "WE ONLY HAVE AN HOUR AND A HALF TO CLEAN UP THIS DUMP".
It was 'clearly' explained to me, years ago that if both people work than both people clean the house.
On the 'sentencing phase'. Your only hope there is for a friendly judge. Any hope for that?? Remember Rhodent, the woman in the relationship has ultimate power. And I mean that in the best possible way.

Part of the problem is that my hubby perceives that he is the ONLY one cleaning up the house. He does not believe that I pull my weight around here. NO matter how much I do he focuses on what is NOT done. Like, I should be waiting anxiously with the vacuum cleanier already humming the second he moves his crud out of the living room and hall. That way he can restack everything within 24 hrs and know that he is stacking on a freshly vacuumed carpet! AAAAHHHH

I'll vouch for you being a character. Make a list of chores and get him to do half.
And show him how neat you keep your blog..

Happy and Blue -
If you suggest just making a list, the woman makes a color coded spreadsheet customized to each person currently living in the household. It's actually a rather disturbingly organized way to go about doing chores... Trust me. Actually, isn't there a post on here somewhere referring to her affinity for Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets?? If not, she needs one!! ;)
p.s. Rhodent- did I mention that i've finally overcome my deep-seeded issues with excel, and made a spreadsheet (with color coding) for the first time ever quite recently? I only twitched a little bit... ;)
