My husband doesn't like my new bumper sticker


He puts up with it however. But no, he doesn't particularly like it on our car. 

I've only had one bumper sticker in my life and that was about 15 years ago. I don't like to make statements while I am driving around town.

But I could not resist this one. 

Today I even had a man who was driving next to me point to the back of my car and give a thumbs up! 
Made my day. 

This is the way I figure: If it inspires just one person go home and make dinner, it's worth it. I think many problems in families could be solved if there was a good dinner on the table most evenings.

Dennis likes what this sticker says, he just doesn't want anyone thinking he was the one who put it there. Maybe he doesn't want anyone thinking he makes dinner. But he never does, so it's okay. 

He may not want people thinking he makes dinner (must be a generational thing), but he has no problem going to Time Out for Women with me this weekend. I tried to tell him that he may very well be the only man in the audience but that did not sway him. When I asked if he would like to go with me, he said, "Sure!' just like that. I meant it sort of as a joke...but hey, if he wants to go, there is no one I'd rather be with than him. 

Hopefully I won't have a horror story to report later about them kicking him out.

I can't wait to hear what happens at TOFW.

And I love the bumper sticker.

I like your bumper sticker! But I'm the same as you, I don't like having my opinions on the bumper of my car.
Ray never used to either, but now he has them all the time!
At Christmas ~ "Keep Christ in Christmas" or "We say 'Merry Christmas", those I like.
But now he has two political ones ~
"Fight Socialism: Buy a Ford" and another one but I forget what it says, something about 'going back to sleep'. Too much controversy for me, especially where we live! When we were down south we got a lot of positive comments, but here we get glared at.

I could not stop laughing at the video on your last post! That was so cute!
And your laughter is really infectious, I was laughing out loud, Jayden and my daughter wanted to know what I found so funny!
Love to you,

Yes, we want a follow up report from TOFW. I will be helping at the priest/laurel prom so cannot attend...take good notes to share with me! :) I like your bumper sticker too...we don't sport them either. But that one is great!

Just because of this blog and seeing your bumper sticker, I'm not going to war with your dad and will, instead, fix dinner. I'm that one person you were reaching out to. Can't wait for your report of TOFW. Love, Susan

Hi Jill,
Great bumper sticker. The best bumper sticker I've seen was "Watch out, I drive just like you do"

I love the bumper sticker! And I bet Dennis will love Time out for Women. I went two years ago for the first time and I think I do remember seeing at least a few husbands there!

I love dinner and I don't like war. :)
At the Time Out for Women here in TX, there were some men attending with their wives. I think he will enjoy it, the discussions were great! The music was also wonderful. The spirit was fantastic. And I think you will like having him along! You can go home and discuss topics in greater depth.

Mar~ You just gave me an idea. I hadn't thought of how Den and I can discuss this later on. We really enjoy doing that after movies we see together. And I didn't know they had discussions at TOFW...I thought it was strictly lectures.

McKenna~ You went 2 years ago? I've never been! Good you saw some husbands there. :)

DAD~ I can see you liking that "I drive just like you do" bumper sticker! :)

Susan~ Good you're choosing dinner over war!

Scrapally~ I hadn't thought of taking notes, but now that you mentioned it, I will!

Eileen~ I can understand how it might be best to stay away from political bumper stickers in NYC.

Darlene~ Glad you are back. I keep waiting for you to sign in as NanaHoney.

Sue~ That's the plan, to report back! :)

I think it's great. I mean, really there are few things as wonderful as a homemade dinner, and few things as devastating as war.

Grandma Honey said...

Great summary Karen. :)

Since when did war get such a bad wrap?


Ammy said...

Time Out for Women is GREAT! I have to wait til October for Denver but I know it'll be well worth it. I love the bumper sticker and I agree with the bumper sticker!

Stephanie Cozzens said...

I'm not really a bumper sticker person, either, but this one's great. And I agree, making dinner and then eating it together is a very peaceful, bonding, important activity (but then I look to cook).

I'm looking forward to your TOFW report. I'm lobbying my husband to take some time off so I can attend one with my sister in Denver in October.

I love your bumper sticker. I love dinner.
I am excited that Dennis is going to go to TOFW. I will look for you.

I love your bumper sticker. We've always made it a practice to have "dinner as a family" because that is the time everyone really interacts with each other, and it's especially nice when it isn't fast food!

Tell Dennis his purse should match his belt...
