Here's A Quarter Etc

Me and hubby are passing quarters back and forth between each other. Why, you ask? I'll tell you.

He has had a nasty habit for years and years to reply, "I don't care, whatever YOU want" when I ask him something. Last week I told him, from now on when he says that, he has to give me a quarter. He must have thought I was just making a flip remark until the first time he said it and I held my hand out and asked for my quarter.

I was a bit surprised that he gave me one. I thought woohoo I'm going to get rich off quarters. Funny how things often don't turn out like you plan them to.

You see, I hadn't realized how much I said to HIM "you should." Soon after I started having him give me quarters though I saw this one little flaw I have (quit laughing) and voluntarily decided to give him a quarter every time I said "you should."

Turns out neither of us will get rich off quarters.

I've made a couple references lately about the state of hubby's desk. I thought I'd show you...

OK, first up is my desk. This is how it
looked when I decided to take pictures. I didn't tidy it up.


This is hubby's desk. This is surprisingly more
organized and uncluttered than it usually is. (Sheesh.
Now I feel kind of like I've been whining about nothing.)

If only I had a quarter for everytime Hub's replied "I guess so." to me...

Your neatness makes me twitch... my desk would look much more like Mike's, just sayin'. We may be great friends, but I think I'd give you a complex in real life. bwahahahaha

Oh, Barb. You'd freak over my desk! Of course, I freak over my desk, which is why I never go into my 'Puter Room anymore!!

OMG! You think that's messy? :grinning sheepishly: You haven't seen messy! But I clean it all the time! And I know where everything is. Besides...who sees it but me? Right? LOL

Oh good! I hope you do share how to add the blog roll cause I don't know! Shame on me!

My husband says that to me all the time and I am pretty sure I say 'you should' as well.

You don't ever want to even think of coming near my desk! It is a rat's nest, big time. Bills, other papers, notes to self, church address directory sit lined up with my computer tower, along with a thing of deodorant, Fixodent tooth powder,a tube of Aspercreme, my camera, two small candles, more papers of the note kind but blank (for taking messages that usually get lost), a couple sales flyers, three or four books, part of the newspaper, and that's just on the desk top! On the tower, there's more books, a phone, along with another phone to daughter's line laying on my desk top, some parts of some craft projects. Looks like Fibber McGee's closet but without shelves and a door to close and keep the items intact on those shelves! Very much a mess, needless to say. In my defense, not all this packrat stuff is mine though as some of it also belongs to my daughter, who doesn't believe she is as big a packrat as I am -but I know differently!
Some day, I plan to clean this mess again -usually get around to doing that once a year if I'm lucky. But that "some day" I doubt will be any day too soon. When I do though, it will be an event of such magnitude that you can be sure I will blog about it.
