If I'm in the middle of a project on the dining room table, I can leave it there, and it won't be disturbed until I'm ready to work on it again.

I can walk around the house in my undies and sip coffee at the computer early in the morning, and nobody cares, not even the dog. Hilarious!

No one can complain about me spending too much money on irises or horses. Whistling

I already do all that. Sometimes I skip the undies. Hubby never utters a word about it. And neither do the dogs. He might say something if I bought a horse, though. Lovey dubby

I always have the remote!

I can play the music I want as loud as I want it. or I can "not" play the music when I don't want it.

My husband's cousin is having a time of it
She has a fairly new diagnosis of MS
Just retiring from military - a big change
Her ex husband and father of her kids ate raw oysters and died last year
Her son is a problem child
Her mom just died
He dad 85 years just got diagnosed with a lymphoma - he lives alone
Her sis's marriage just imploded
And menopause has hit...

Normally she is the family rock....
But the rock is shaking...and yet the " family " still is clamoring for her attention ...

She called this morning and asked if she could come to stay for a little while...
She said God led her to ask...said she wants to spend some time with me...

My dear hubby was incredulous....
He said "HE led her to YOU??? That is a cruel god indeed "

And so folks, after she goes back home, I may be able to contribute to this thread with all MY newly found joys of being single! He wants to experience " cruel "..... let him figure out his own medication schedule....where they come from..how they are ordered...how to boil water... How to fold his favorite boxers with the little sailboats facing just the right way.. and where every lost tool and screw is hiding! 😝😏

Do you like the cousin? These things happen for a reason. Not the bad stuff to her, but the fact that she called you.

And YOUR Spousal Unit...........hmmm.........an industrial-sized can of Whoop-Ass and a "Come to Jesus" talk are in order. Rolling on the floor laughing
