I have been looking for the perfect urn for Avery's ashes. So my husband, who is a Craigslist-aholic comes to me the other day with his phone in his hand and says, and this is a quote "I know it's nothing special, but it's cheap." And shows me his phone. It was an UGLY, ridiculously ugly urn. I said "yea, it's ugly, lets get it, and put it away for your ashes...since it's nothing special." He then realized that was a stupid thing to say. I'm certainly not going to buy any ol' urn for my babies ashes. Who the heck shops for urns on Craigslist besides my husband, and who the heck sells urns on Craigslist!

Ok, that's all

Men don't think at all! Yesterday was nice outside so I suggested we take the dogs for a walk. Since its been freezing all winter. Well he made a big deal about how he had stuff to do and didn't want to go for a walk. So I go by myself with the dogs. He calls me while I'm on the walk and says "I know I just made a big deal about going outside but by friends are playing frisbee golf in the park, do you care if I go?" I was so mad that he even asked. He said he realized that was mean after and he didn't go. But still! Ugh

 I don't think men understand these things well. I know my hubby will just tell me that he doesn't know what to say or do to help. Then I usually tell him, here's the right answer.

Ok I know it's not funny at all but just the way you tell the story made me laugh. Men can be clueless sometimes. At least he realized it.
