So THE PROPER CARE & FEEDING OF HUSBANDS is now my evening companion. It starts off a little scary - like the author is going to tell me to pull a finger out, and start being more domesticated to increase my husband's comfort... but then it continues in the same vein and I start mentally listing all my deficiencies. The list is long.
However, I was relieved to find that Stacey Julian (Simple Scrapbooks) had read and recommended it... not that I need her approval - but at least I am curious to keep going to the end! Isn't it nuts that as women we create this mammoth mountain of check lists, 'to be' goals, diary dates and chocka schedules - and really the folks that come off worst are the ones we kinda promised to look after the most. I like the analogy of clearing your plate of some of the junk to make room for the good stuff. As soon as we start talking about plates, and the good stuff... I am all ears (it hits all the right notes for me!)
Let me know if anyone has read it - and whether it is going to change my life (or at least my cooking patterns...)
