I could have married a UPS driver

You may remember that new headboard. I ordered some lights for the inside of it so that I wouldn't miss the functionality of the old skank headboard. I'm sentimental that way.

Off topic, there is a wall switch in our bedroom that I have been asking Mr. Right to replace for... 2 months now. I think he has been too busy being off work because he hasn't been able to fit it into his schedule. He does have a grueling tour with Call of Duty on the Wii so I totally understand.

However, when the lights showed up in the mail today (I know this via the wonderful UPS tracking website), I sent Mr. Right an email from work asking him to leave the box alone because I would like to supervise that installation.

This triggered an argument that I am not the boss of him and he is getting his tools now to do the installing.

This is what I like to call an epiphany. I need to rethink my whole approach. Rubbing meatloaf on items that need repairing is not the way to go.

I'm sure you were frustrated but I got a laugh out of it at least. I can just picture you rubbing meatloaf on lightbulbs that need changing, leaking toilets, the lawnmower... It's all about finding the right tools to speak to them. I hope you enjoy your newly-lit skank-free headboard!

Men! They are just like kids, they do exactly the opposite of what they are told!

You are TOTALLY the boss of him. He's just delooooding himself.
