There Is Always Something You Want Me To Do

Updated on November 21, 2013

If You could...

That is an open ended question

That continues on like a run on sentence

My wife just keeps on adding and adding

Like a boy making a sand castle

Just one more wall and before you know it

You have half the beach

The only difference is one I did for fun

The other one I do because it makes my wife happy

Be careful of other questions that are just as dangerous

While I am gone could you...

If you get a chance ....

When you get a minute...

I use to hear older husbands talking to other guys about the Honey To Do Lists

Now years later I know only to well

I would love to write all day

That's not going to happen

A crack of the whip ( only joking)

I really don't mind

There is nothing else I rather do

Than put away all the summer yard things

Pull out Thanksgiving decorations and move the Christmas ones up front

So they are easy to find

Since we have limited space

We have to stack things in plastic containers down the cellar

Well she is out to do a few errands and will be back soon

Don't forget

How could I forget last week you asked me five times

Just a reminder

I dodged the bullet the first four times

Truthfully I wouldn't have it any other way

Marriage is a wonderful give and take

It all makes life more interesting

I hear a car now

I better go and make myself disappear

I know she will be alright as long as I start something

Anywhere but here

      DDE My wife will help which makes most of my jobs so much easier. Of course she had a plan. Now she knows I finished sooner and she finds something else to add to the list. Having fun getting things done. Thank you so much for reading.

      The list often gets bigger or better but you can only do what you can think positive and for the good reasons of why you choose to do it. Married life does change a person.

      billybuc It looked harder than it was. I got the things she wanted and other things she forgot all about.She was very happy. OOoops I hear her calling me for something else.I spoke to soon. Sunny River My wife just has a lot on her mind. Where I only have one thing. jhamann I can't remember what I did before I was married. My mind is conditioned to respond to my wife's every move. I am not sure if that is a good or bad thing.Only time will tell.Thanks everyone for reading and sharing my day.
