Mr F Wants Everyone To Be In Love With Him

So behold...

Yes, he does the dishes.

But the reason I'm married to him is because he watched Saving Sarah Cain last night, a Lifetime Original Movie, about an orphaned Amish family (yes take that ALL in).

Just wait it gets better.

In reference to the funeral scene wherein a fancy city slicker awkwardly shows up late (bearing flowers no less) and then has her cell phone go off Mr F said...

"That's like the worst case scenario."

"What your cell phone going off at an Amish funeral?" I asked.

"Yeah. It's bad enough that she's an Englisher." Mr F replied.

Then he smiled up at me and said "Do you love me?"

Yes I do.

I'm smitten!!! I think you hit the jackpot anyway.

Renee said...

I'd definitely say you hit the jackpot...can you send him over to my house and/or at the very least does he do training sessions for other husbands??? :)

Mrs Furious said...

Oh Mr F is going to be in love with his own self after reading the comments!


Renee,
The funniest thing I can imagine is Mr F do husband training sessions. Hilarious.

Mr Furious said...

All my lingo is based on "Witness."

Yes, my brain is filled with stuff like dialogue from a twenty year old movie—but that's the reason why I leave the house without the shopping list and have to call Mrs F five times from the store...

Mrs Furious said...

I will tell you that all it took was those two comments... he read them and said "I am in love with myself" and then did a little jig.

Mr Furious said...

Good grief.

Elizabeth said...

Well, maybe the flaws are just to make the good things look better? I dunno.

Also, I finally sat down and looked at all my receipts going back to October, and HOLY SHIT am I out of control.

and I thought I was doing pretty well. If this is pretty well, I don't know what I was spending money on before! I legitimately think I have a problem!

Since you've been talking about compacting, i've been thinking about it more. I just can't seem to NOT spend money. It's weird.

Mrs Furious said...

Elizabeth,
I totally relate. Now I look back and just don't know what I was thinking/doing before. I really did shop for emotional reasons.

Anyway do this:
Take this week and ONLY buy food & gas. When it's one week challenges it is totally doable and it helps break the cycle.

Elizabeth said...

See; and here I KNOW I'm justifying bad behavior, I have at least one weekly outing that is my main social event that includes eating out. I just CAN'T give that up and remain sane.

But maybe everything but that is doable? I'll try.

Mrs Furious said...

Elizabeth,
I think that's perfectly fair... if not necessary. You should go out (and technically it's food, right?).



I have had no freaking internet access most of the day! It's been killing me!!!

Mr. F., even though you are relying on a 20-year old movie for your lingo, it is still charming what a good match you and the Mrs. are. My husband also does the dishes and grocery shops (with a prepared list), and I know how valuable that really is. So, maybe it's okay to be a little in love with yourself today!

Christy said...

Men who do the dishes are hott!

SK and Family said...

Y'all have a good deal going on--my husband helps a LOT, but I'd love a "nightly" ritual of him cleaning the kitchen...

:)

Missives From Suburbia said...

Does Mr. F have good logistic skills when it comes to loading the dishwasher? My husband does the loading and unloading, but if I throw something into the dishwasher, I inevitably end up reorganizing it, because he fits two things into a space where ten were designed to go. It kind of makes me nuts. Mr. F strikes me as more spatially aware.

Mrs Furious said...

Deb,
He and I have completely opposite ideas about how to load a dishwasher. My solution is to just leave all the dishes in the sink and he can load them as he sees fit. ;)
