My post was intended for comedy. I'm sorry that wasn't clear to you..
Sorry, I didn't get it and still don't get the comedy in that.

No, I don't think that.

I just think you should prioritize your husband over bs.

Perhaps you have to be the momoffour who has been married for more then 2 decades to get this type of humor?

Seriously, google "relationships and retirement" and you'll see that this is a real relationship issue. Then google "laughter and relationships" and you can read about how finding the humor in the everyday annoyances helps to prevent them from becoming bigger problems.

KayKay, I think K2L meant that DH should clean the pool or find something else that will make him feel better. But maybe he should try it as a side job or hobby before he quits his day job.

Perhaps. That or I'm not easily amused.

And here I thought I was adding to the humor of the moment.

...and i'm happy for you that like your husband too.

Are you having a bad hair day?

Close. I saw KK's humor. She just didn't appreciate my humor. Now I'm hurt. I'm taking my football and going home.

Oh, I get it!!

Sorry... I was just confused. I thought you were being serious and I was like "Wait, how does me doing his chores for him make him feel better about himself?" *duh*
