My husband often offers to take on more household responsibilities to take some of the load off of me. Last week he decided he would go grocery shopping. We almost had to go to counseling.
No, not really but I did ban him from ever doing the shopping without me.
When I do the grocery shopping I carefully plan out my purchases. I take into consideration my budget, what I actually have on hand and any sales or coupons available that week. Not my husband, nope that’s not how he shops!
He texted me one day last week while I was at work and said he was going to pick up some groceries. Ok, great….or so I thought! I keep a grocery list on the refrigerator so I assumed he would take the list and pick up those items. Well you know what they say about assuming! (Its makes an ass out of u and me.)
I came home from work that night to find that his grocery shopping consisted of these items:
Organic Cow’s Milk (which I don’t and can’t drink)
And might I add, not a single one of these items was on our list of what we needed.
Needless to say there aren’t many healthy meals that can be created from his selections which meant the next day I had to go do the actual grocery shopping myself.
I love my husband but from now on he is banned from doing the grocery shopping without me.
