It’s here, guys! The long-awaited installment of Married Life where Mr. Lovely and I air our dirty laundry and tell you fine people what exactly drives us nuts about each other. I have to say, we sat down together to write this post and actually ended up in fits of laughter telling each other the things that make us bonkers. So at least we can laugh about it, right? Although I have to say, Mr. Lovely had a hard time coming up with the first couple of things on his list and as we went along it curiously became quite easy for him…
In any case, take a look at our lists and have a laugh. Here are a few pet peeves of mine when it comes to my darling husband:
He never wipes his crumbs off the counter.
I can never have a can of diet soda all to myself.
He can’t close a drawer or a cabinet to save his life.
If he doesn’t know the answer to something, he makes one up. And I usually believe him. And that causes problems.
He gets fixated on melodies and will whistle the same 5 or 7 notes over and over. And over.
There are at least three pairs of his shoes in the living room at all times.
And here’s the stuff that I do that drives him crazy:
I never back up my computer, and he has to deal with the fallout when things get lost.
I tend to have an extra trash bag annex, directly next to the actual trash can.
I tickle and pinch him but get extraordinarily upset when he does the same back to me.
Instead of refilling the ice cube bucket, I just take individual ice cubes out of the ice cube trays.
I always finish the ice cream without telling him so he doesn’t have an opportunity to have one last bite.
There’s glitter everywhere. All the time.
I mean, all in all it’s not that bad. Right? If the worst thing I have to deal with is sharing my soda then I probably have it pretty good. And what about you? Don’t leave me hanging here — I want to know the little things that your partner does to get under your skin. I mean, nobody’s perfect! Let’s let it all hang out. xoxo
