I admit this is petty. I know in marriage, motherhood and life in general something could be worse; and pick your battles.
But i just gotta vent about my husband buying Vertical window blinds!
In our old house, we had blinds. In our new house, we have blinds. They break, the kids bend 'em and they get dusty. I'm short and it ain't easy to take 'em down to wash.
In our last house, we had 5 windows in our entrance room and every morning to let in maximum light, because it was a darker, older house, I pulled 'em up. But they would pull up crooked, not completely vertical. i battled to straighten them but i'm a busy woman, and would just pull 'em and make do. My husband would complain that it looked sloppy.
So we moved to another house, and there were the old blinds in a big picture window. We're still getting settled so I didn't done anything with them yet. The kids pulled on the ends, the strings were weak, and they hung crooked.
I told my husband I wanted to put up curtains. Being frugal as well as busy, I'd never invested in curtains. But now I wanted to do what I'd wanted for years. He said the kids would hang off of them and pull them down, but i say they're less breakable than blinds, and easier to wash.
So what does he do?
He goes shopping and buys new blinds. Ugh!
They are newer and brighter and look nice. But on Day 2 of them being up, my toddler already pulled on them and bent two blinds though this time they bounced back. This morning I pulled them up, and 2 sets on this 3-paned window are already crooked.
I'm so annoyed.
years of window blinds i hate!
should i go get curtains now? or just live with this stupid thorn in my side?
