    I love the positive spin you were able to put on doing things together that one of you might not enjoy. We really do have a choice whether we grumble about it (and destroy all the fun for our spouse) or suck it up and find a way to make the best of it. The football example is a good one. I pretty much hate all sports. I find them dull. But my husband loves football, so when he wants me to watch a game with him, I just sit with my laptop on my lap. He doesn’t care that I’m not watching closely. He just wants me there with him. (I do find the yelling at the screen a touch stressful though :P)

    Yay, Marcy! Good for you! All your husband wants is to be close to you, so you’ve found a way to be with him, while he’s enjoying something you don’t like…and make it not miserable for you. It’s just little things like that that can make all the difference in a relationship. 🙂

    And I agree with you. I don’t get the whole yelling at the screen. My parents used to do that all the time when they watched baseball. With the windows wide open in the dead of summer. We had neighbors close enough to hear them, too. In fact, I imagine that residents a couple of blocks over could hear them. 🙂

    My husband doesn’t watch sports much so that really isn’t an issue in my house. He does like me to sit down, rub his feet and watch shows I’m not that interested in though. 😐 But it is together time. So there’s that. I usually get a foot rub in return. It’s a fair trade.

    Hmm, bottle of ipecac – a glimpse into the mind of KK!

    I’m loving your series. Such practical advice. And yes, my friend there are one or two things you all do that we, ahem, tolerate. 😉

    But football … c’mon, man, you gotta like that. You’re from MI!!

      LOL…just wait until I share my advice for behavior control…with ‘Chocolate’ chunk cookies…substituting chunks of Ex-Lax for the chocolate, of course. No, I’ve never actually tried it, I’d just like to see if it works. 🙂

      And thank you. I’m enjoying it, too. Hopefully some people are finding it useful.

      Sigh…I know. U of M, MSU, the Lions. The only thing I will say that I like are the Lions uniforms. Never, ever call them outfits…and especially never ‘prettiest outfits.’ I don’t know why people take offense at that…blue and silver look pretty together. 🙂
