Today I learnt something. That husband and I are so unbelievably alike, it had infuriates me. We are both so stubborn.
He was awake before me for a change and got bored so went downstairs, I eventually followed and now he’s doing the dishes (which I’m not complaining about). However, last night after coming home from a wedding, he mentioned the dishes and I said “I’ll do them,” to which he replied, “okay.. Well I did do them last time.” And I believe in fairness. So forgive me that I overslept a little- he woke me up at 5:30am as he lost his wedding ring and I struggled to get back to sleep for a while- and that you got up before me. I clearly said to him, “I said I’d do the dishes,” and he replied, “I’m doing them now.” How annoying?! Bless his heart for doing the dishes, but I said I would do them. I guess the lesson I have learnt today is that I shouldn’t be a lazy cow and leave dishes on the side, just as much as he does. And I should let my pride be defeated in the way that I did not get up early enough to do them so now my husband is. I am just as stubborn as he is and I would have argued with him to do the dishes for ages. Which is ironic considering that we argue about no one doing the dishes. Oops.
