on how to get your husband to do chores without nagging.
Dennis likes to empty the dishwasher for me,
but since his stroke sometimes he has trouble holding onto things.
Occasionally a plate won't make it to the cupboard.
We've lost a few so far.
On another note, tonight we were eating at a Mexican restaurant.
It was obvious our waitress was new.
She seemed unsure of herself, and nervous.
She unknowingly dropped some food as she was carrying plates to
our table. She left quite a heap of scattered cheese on the floor.
As soon as she was out of sight, Den got down on the floor
(which was not easy for him) and quickly cleaned up her mess.
He didn't want her to get in trouble.
So here's Gretchen Rubin's list....
Number 1 would never work for me. The note yes, but the empty container...he would never notice. I like Number 2 the best!
But I think I would add a Number 10 to her list:
"Just be thankful for what he can do."
