Things You Should Tell Your Wife

Dh and I have two very different communication styles which has led to a few, shall we say "discussions" over the past 14 years. While I like to share the mundane details of my life (usually things I've read on online bulletin boards or blogs--dh could mostly care less), dh likes to keep things to himself. That means at times I have to be a psychic mind-reader to know what is going on in his head. Often he doesn't share little details--like when he gets a bonus for example.

Are there other things you should maybe tell your wife? Hmmm, let's think here. You are currently unemployed. You finally talk to a company after playing phone tag for a month (forget to share that detail). You have a job interview. Yeah, another jem he felt he didn't need to share with me. Grrr, men. After I found out (because I was talking to my dad on the phone telling him dh hadn't talked to this one company yet and dh is shaking his head "yes he has" in the background) I asked him if he was going to share that with me or just tell me he was getting up at 6 am on a Friday to go out of town for fun. Anyway, I wish him luck today. It isn't a dream job by any means and we were both turned off by some of the things said on the company website, but its a start.

Is this the place in DM that mom found?

And I'm the one who expects N to be a mind reader. He loves me for that. :p

Good luck to J today.
