Are there statistics?

On how many men are killed by their wives while trying to make decisions about updating a room in the house where the WIFE spends 90% of her life by a sink or near a stove?

I know one man that most likely will not survive. At the very least, blood will be shed.

This is one of those times where I sit back and ask myself, again, why do women have to marry men?

It's MY kitchen damn it. He can do what he wants to the man cave, garage, yard, whatever...leave my place alone. Trust me when I say that a shiny silver finish light fixture will look like shit in my Tuscan inspired, exposed brick kitchen.

I am too pissed to even write about it. THAT'S PISSED.

A little blood will learn him

God! You've got to be kidding!

What, does he want almond colored appliances, too?

Brushed. Nickel. Man!

Do NOT compromise on this.

Ack! Why is he even voicing an opinion? HE DOESN'T GET ONE! Maybe if you had a few suggestions for his room . . .

Stand your ground. Icy silence should do it.

Oh no... hopefully he will come around to see YOUR point of view SOON! ;) They don't understand!

Can't wait to see the pics of before and after!

Sorry to gatecrash your blog, but I noticed you were a fan of Jorge Garcia's "Dispatches From The Island" and thought you may be interested in a competition I am running where I am giving away a free Lost t-shirt!

To enter, simply email lostquestions23@gmail.com and answer this Lost related question:

- Describe how you would have Lost Season 6 end: who will survive, who will die, and what will happen in the last scene?

More details are available at http://superduperstream.blogspot.com/2010/02/cafepress-competition-1.html , but it really is THAT simple.

I hope this was of interest to you :)

I think it runs around 100%. He'll learn, just as I did. I once told my ex-wife her tapioca didn't taste as the kind my mother made. I never had tapioca again.

As egalitarian and feminist as I claim to be, I am almost ashamed to admit that I am perplexed by men who lay so much stock in the home decor decisions. Ok some rooms, yes, of course. But the kitchen, when you spend the vast majority of time WORKING in there? Yes, I don't blame you.

Now I will add here that my husb has done a fair share of remodeling (general contractor is he) and fair warning - we take bets about which marriages will show what degree of strain after it's all said and done. And whether my husband will have scars and a bloody nose to prove it. Remodeling is WAY tough on a marriage. I have actually given some consideration to requesting a fee for my expertise as I counsel my husband through the roughest spots at the end.

Oh, and I love your answer to the dig to china question on your profile page! haha!

Don't worry. As time passes you'll be able to REALLY say what you think!

And why do we marry men? Because vibrators can't mow the grass.

Oh man! I live in the desert, I'm screwed. Well.. maybe not.

Does he not know the power of veto? It's alive and well, my friend.
