    He did take her rug shopping didn't he? And buy supper while they were out?

    He's hard to live with, but my life would be very dull without him!

    Stuff in my kitchen has been where it's at for 25 years except for the "roll" stuff that has a newer rack on the pantry door. My older DD doesn't do too bad returning stuff, but my younger DD puts stuff ----------away----------where it can't be seen.

    I read some of these to my husband, he said, "You could write a book huh." Like the time I asked him to put wash lines up for me when we moved. Told him how high and 3 lines (T style). Well, he thought he would make it better for me by putting 4 lines on it (to close for the wash to dry) and lower it so I could reach it better (wash hung on the ground). Over the years he hit his head on the T part more than I can count, I just laughed at him and said, "You should have made it the height I asked for." I came home one day and my wash lines were gone!! He hit his head on it again, said that was it and cut them down. lol Still waiting for new ones.

    Husbands always think there is a better way! And they will never learn. That is why we do things sometimes when they are at work or out playing golf.

    I have a large green mat with a couple of warped spots. I still use the mat, I just cut elsewhere. But would love to have the bubbles out. Since I live in Texas and it is hotter than the blazes here right now - thinking about laying mine out. Just checking - you just laid yours out on the concrete? Did you place anything on top of it? I saw a comment that indicated to soak it in warm water and vinegar first then lay out - which I can do if need be. Just wondered exactly what you did. :-)

    Very funny reading of how *helpful* our husbands are (NOT!)!!

    I moved a few years ago and my matt warped to the point I was going to throw it out. Hubby suggested I try putting it under the mattress on our bed and it worked, good thing it worked since it was March and the sun here isnt that warm in March!

    How funny -- I could see my DH help me like this. However, our temps would not straightening anything.
