Ok so I don't get the credit for making this one up, but I laughed really hard so I thought I would share it. I did find it in a mens magazine , or rather my husband found it and read it to me. He thought it was amusing perhaps not quite as amusing as I found it though.

I know what your thinking...where are these classes offered and how can I get my husband there? Are they available before Valentines Day?
As funny as some of those are because they hit a little too close to home , I realized after reading that my hubby would get an A on some of those classes. He is an excellent shopping companion...infact I'm the one that hates to shop, he loves shopping. Also he is the first one to suggest we stop and get directions...I am usually too embarrassed. He is also excellent at remember special days and remembering to call me if he will be late for dinner or just to say hi.
The icecube tray, laundry hamper, and the toilet paper roll....well...I think that might be a lost cause. 12 1/2 years of explaining the process and it still doesn't happen.
I was just thinking this afternoon how my husband and I REALLY need to get out on a date. I don't know when the last time we went anywhere alone together was...out in the sticks we are short on babysitters, restaurants ,entertainment and of course we are always short on $ too so it is just complicated and a lot of work to do anything other than just hang out at home. BUT I just found a church about an hour away that is showing "Fireproof" Sat. night so I am jumping at the chance and have started phoning around for a babysitter who will watch 4 kids. Looks like we'll have to get one 40km away but it will be worth the extra driving and effort to have an evening out without all the little monkeys. I've got my hopes up for an evening out now so it had better work out. No snowy blizzards allowed on Saturday.
Happy Valentines Day!!
