Top Ten Things You Wish My Pastor Would Tell Our Husbands

M.I.A. (Mother in Agony). Actually, it means "missing in action", but that doesn't fit either. Regardless, I have to keep things going around here. Oh, it's just a head cold, but I hate taking antihistamine for it. I'll live, but it doesn't feel that way. Anyway, that's not why I've gathered you all together.

My pastor,
Jon Weece, has opened the floor for ladies to tell him what they wish Jon would relate to our husbands. And vice versa. So, I give you

My top ten list of things I wish he would address from the pulpit:

10. Playing the old, "I'm a guy" routine will not make brownie points. You are far too intelligent to use that one.

9. Expecting a parade whenever you clean the kitchen isn't cool, either. Women do that all the time and we usually don't get recognized for it. Oh, wait, we set it up, didn't we? In potty training, you make a big deal out of every effort, so maybe that's where they get it.

8. Ice cream is not a food group. It falls into one, but seriously, we could live without it.

7. Neither is BBQ.

6. Doing taxes ON THE 15Th online is probably a bad idea. Getting mad at the computer won't help, it's most likely bottle-necked from the rest of America trying to file.

5. A Porshe is NOT a family car.

4. Politics is not a taboo subject, but don't think I'm crazy when I have opinions of my own about YOUR chosen party.

3. I honestly don't feel the need to consult
Web MD every time our kids get the sniffles. But I'm happy you are so attentive to our kids.

2. Buying my Christmas, birthday or Valentine's Day present the DAY OF is not showing me you thought about me, (especially when you know the date of each Sci-Fi premiere) and the dates in question are locked in.

1. I will never get excited over Halo, paintball, or car shows, but I love you, anyway.

Feel free to leave comments on what you like Pastor Jon to say and I'll pass it on.

I hope you are feel better real soon.

Somedays everything my husband does is on "my go away list". Other days he is on the "you are perfect list". Hum what list is he on today?? Must be perfect because he is sleeping.

Three cheers for Pastor Jon.

If you don't (or can't) cook, you should clean the kitchen. And that doesn't mean just putting the dirty dishes into the dishwasher. It means wiping down the sink and countertops, too.

And just because you haven't gotten me a birthday gift in years doesn't mean I'm over that.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Post the link to that sermon once it's preached - that will be a good one.

I don't have anything, mainly because I tell my husband EVERYTHING (much to his dismay! ha!) ... and he IS a pastor ... sooooo ... there ya' go! ha!

Here's mine!

Just because you BBQ the meat, if I prepare all the sides, set the table, clean up after and do all the shopping for EVERYTHING in the meal, don't tell me YOU made dinner.

Thanks Pastor Jon!

I like the one about expecting a parade if you clean the kitchen. This is a dangerous area. If I ever got started, I might not be able to stop. Hope you are feeling better.

How about: I appreciate that you did the wash but leaving in a heap on the couch for the cat to sleep on????

Tell me I look nice without my asking you to.

When I lose a bunch of weight and you say nothing about my effort, don't think you have a right to comment when I gain weight back.
